Ronan Farrow’s Paternity Response: ‘Don’t You Feel Like A Quality Journalist Right Now?’

RonanFarrow Soon, as the host of a his own show on MSNBC, 25-year-old Ronan Farrow will be the one asking the questions. Recently, he got some practice with The Hollywood Reporter‘s Marisa Guthrie.

When Guthrie asked whether the headlines generated by that paternity question are a distraction, Farrow fired back with a question of his own: “Don’t you feel like a quality journalist right now?”

Farrow recently penned a snarky tweet—generating over 9,500 retweets— in response to his mother’s remark that he might be the child of legendary crooner Frank Sinatra—and not famed actor/director Woody Allen.

Farrow also talks about his upcoming show, viewing his status as a TV news outsider as an asset that can “shake things up.”

The as-yet unnamed program is set to debut on MSNBC in January.
