On Tuesday, Matt Lauer released a new op-ed that was aimed directly at journalist Ronan Farrow and Brooke Nevils, the former NBC staffer who accused Lauer of rape during the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Taking issue with Farrow's 2019 book "Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators," the one-time "Today" anchor questioned the validity of the content of Farrow's work and again denied the rape allegations.

In the op-ed, which was posted to Mediaite, Lauer called Farrow's book "shocking." Throughout the lengthy piece, Lauer broke down some of what he believes are inconsistencies and false statements that were made by Farrow in "Catch and Kill." He also stated that what was written "should concern anyone who cares about journalism." 

"It’s about whether, as journalists, we have a responsibility to check facts and vet sources. It’s about understanding the difference between journalism and activism. It is about whether we are putting far too much trust in journalists whose publicly stated opinions impact their ability to remain objective," he wrote.

Now, both parties have responded. Following the op-ed's release, both Farrow and Nevils took to Twitter to refute what Lauer had published.

"All I’ll say on this is that Matt Lauer is just wrong. Catch and Kill was thoroughly reported and fact-checked, including with Matt Lauer himself," Farrow wrote, as seen in the tweet below.



Nevils also shared her thoughts about the development. However, hers were more succinct than Farrow's as she simply wrote, "DARVO: Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender."

Prior to Lauer's op-ed, the former NBC star had largely stayed out of the public eye aside from an unexpected appearance, an off-the-record interview, and a 2019 open letter, which Nevils also responded to at the time.

However, the conversation surrounding him did not cease in the years following his 2017 firing.

Over the course of the past year, several reports highlighted the alleged relationships that he had with some of his former colleagues at NBC. Not only has it been reported that "Today" host Hoda Kotb "ghosted" him after the accusations emerged, but it has also been said that former co-host Ann Curry could negatively affect him if she decided to break her "dignified silence." Additionally, Katie Couric is also reportedly gearing up to release her 2021 memoir, "Unexpected," which has reportedly "paralyzed" him with fear.

At this time, it remains unclear whether Lauer will address what Farrow and Nevils said, but it was previously indicated that his accuser may have the ability to move forward with legal action thanks to a specific law.
