Matt Lauer fired from NBC for sexual misconduct

Wed Nov 29, 2017 12:53 pm

Man oh man Karma at it's finest. I always DESPISED Matt Lauer . I am sure Ann Curry is laughing right now. I think NBC should have canned him years ago. Egotistical SOB.

Don't think it was just misconduct - things had been building up since his moderating of a NBC Presidential Town Hall/forum on September 7 2016 during last year's election. Thinking NBC received lot of heat/pressure from the Clintons over Lauer's treatment of Hillary.

If there is one person who can help him out it's Katie Couric - they go way back on Today show.

What is the plan for all these old horses in the industry, maybe they should start a media outlet only staffed by sexual offenders with slogan "We offend, you decide"

Trump can pony up the cash, and Roy Moore can bring in all the youngsters.

All of them can go ride the pine as far as I am concerned. None of them , Lauer, Weinstein, Frankin, Trump, Moore, or O'Reilly should be in positions of power.
Older than I just was ,and younger than I will soo be.

I don't really understand how Matt Lauer lasted twenty years at the Today show. I never consider him a serious journalist as compared to Bryant Gumbel who I considered did an outstanding job, and conducted some serious interviews.

Bryant Gumbel was a asshat too another egomaniac that had the anchor post at the Today show good riddance to both of them.

Apparently, he exposed himself to one employee....another he gave a sex toy as a present with an explicit note.

Where is all this outrage over Trump? People in the public eye have been fired and or disciplined over sexual harassment and yet we have Trump who admitted it on tape and 11 (I think) women have come forward and accused him, but no one seems to be outraged and no one seems to be doing anything about it!

They should run for GOP senate. Pastors will rally to their defense unless all these victims were of legal age.

There's plenty of outrage from those on the other side of the isle, if you need an echo chamber.

No sitting President has even been taken out of office for shit he did before he took office, much less for unproved accusations, before he took office.

But, I have taken up too much of your time. Now let me let you get back to the "circle."

There has been an (unconfirmed) report that Matt Lauer's wife has left the house in the Hamptons. Possibly even going back to her native country, The Netherlands.

I'm sure while she's away, Annette can pick up the phone and call Erin Nordegren, and have some "girl talk."

Matt had installed a mechanism that would automatically lock his door from his desk. That way nobody could walk in on him unexpectedly when he was sexually assaulting women it also served to trap them in his office. What a freak.
