MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes addressed on his show Monday reports from Ronan Farrow's new book alleging NBC silenced reporting on sexual misconduct and authorized a cover-up. He noted NBC leadership "vigorously denies" the account but said 1 thing is "indisputable" following Farrow's departure from the network.

"Ronan Farrow walked out of NBC News ... and within 2 months published an incredible article at the New Yorker that not only won a Pulitzer, but helped trigger a massive social and cultural reckoning that continues to this day. It is the kind of journalism that you want to do as a journalist, that everyone who works in this business should want to facilitate. 
— Chris Hayes on MSNBC's "All In with Chris Hayes"

The big picture: Farrow alleges in the book "Catch and Kill" that NBC sought to kill Farrow's reporting on Harvey Weinstein in 2017 and that NBC management feared that allegations of sexual misconduct against "Today" show host Matt Lauer could come out as a result. Farrow told "CBS This Morning" Monday that he stands by his reporting.

President Joe Biden vows to be "a president for all Americans"

Moments after taking the oath of office, President Joe Biden sought to sooth a nation riven by political divisions and a global pandemic, while warning that "we have far to go" to heal the country and defeat a "virus that silently stalks the the country."

Why it matters: From the same steps that a pro-Trump mob launched an assault on Congress two weeks earlier, the new president paid deference to the endurance of American political institutions.

President Biden has delivered his inaugural address at the Capitol, calling for an end to the politics as total war but warning that "we have far to go" to heal the country.

What's next: Biden and Vice President Harris review readiness of military troops, a long-standing tradition to signify the peaceful transfer of power.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were inaugurated as president and vice president respectively in a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday morning.

Why it matters: Top Democrats and Republicans gathered for the peaceful transfer of power only two weeks after an unprecedented siege on the building by Trump supporters to disrupt certification of Biden's victory. Trump did not attend Wednesday's ceremony.
