NBC fires ´Today´ host Matt Lauer
for ´inappropriate sexual behavior´

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/29/2017 7:36:09 AM

NBC News says longtime "Today" show host Matt Lauer has been fired for "inappropriate sexual behavior." Lauer´s co-anchor Savannah Guthrie made the announcement at the top of Wednesday´s "Today" show. Guthrie read a statement from NBC News chairman Andy Lack, stating that the company has received a detailed complaint from a colleague Monday night "about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace" by Lauer. Lack´s statement said the company found that after a serious review of the complaint it represented "a clear violation" of the company´s standards, and Lauer was terminated as a result. Lack added in his statement that it

wow.. must have been pretty bad to fire him on the spot. Makes me wonder how much rumor had been known already. ... am I the only one that thinks this is getting out of control? There is harassment, assault, then there is inappropriate behavior or comments.

If we are going to dump these perverts, should we not also dump the executives who tolerated their behavior, and helped cover it up? Not just the NBC producers, but the slush fund creators in Congress.

Uh, when I saw this headline at the NYPost I thought it was some sort of typo or satire. OMG, isn´t Lauer the (second class) king of the liberal persona on American television? Was Lauer another "icon" who fellow workers have known about for years? And I agree with the above poster who said the executives who didn´t stop this behavior, or willfully overlooked it for how long? should also be fired.

What is going on is a gigantic purge using sexual misconduct as the catalyst to get rid of these radicalized jerks. I don´t want to sound all "conspiracy-ist"- but. I probably will; the Las Vegas shooting event changed everything. There is very little doubt that murdering idiot was a radicalized man sent insane by left wingers. The left has scared its little self. Regardless for the reason, this sexual harassment stuff has been around forever- why is it just now suddenly being used as an excuse to purge networks, entertainment, politics and media? Notice- all seats of the most influential radicalized leftists. I notice also the universities seem immune, so far.

Social media is full of women - the grim, quivering kind with ´Coexist´ and ´I´m With Her´ stickers on their cars - bemoaning the loss of cuddly widdle nonthreatening Matt.

They are also the kind of complete idiots who ´still believe Anita Hill.´ This is the distrustful, alienated, suspicious environment they have created in every home and business. This is exactly what they wanted. And now they don´t like it.

I don´t care what your beliefs are....you have to see that there is something very unusual going on right now!

The evil is being revealed in multiple unrelated areas:
Media elites as sexual predators.
Hollywood elites as rapists and molesters
Political elites robbing the citizens to pay for their evil acts
Political elites cheating in their own party
Political elites as traitors to their country for payment from foreigners
Global warming fraud and manipulation revealed
Charity fraud being exposed
Scientific research results are being faked

All of these are things that many people knew about, but the perpetrators have managed to keep the general public in the dark.
So watch out embezzlers, adulterers...the curtain is being pulled back.

Ohio University made a big deal to disassociate itself from Roger Ailes a few years ago. (I´m not sure if they actually went so far as to give back the millions of dollars he donated to them.) I will be curious to see what their reaction will be to a left winger who harasses womyn.

Respectfully, the Dem/media/government complex has been enabling this for a very long while. This has only been the tip of the iceberg. I have been curious seeing these first branches of the tree exposed so far. As always, there´s never only one cockroach with the Dems.

And this latest episode in Dem/Leftist/socialist hypocrisy demonstrates yet again the iron rule. Whatever the Left accuses the Right of doing, they´re already doing far worse, and have been for far longer.

I was talking about this with a friend of mine last night. We both wondered where do you draw the line between creepy and inappropriate behavior and consensual flirting? Suppose there has been a history of flirting behavior between a worker and a boss, the she doesn´t get the raise or the position she thinks she should. Then the flirting becomes harassment and in today´s society, the man is automatically the villain.

The NYT must have known this for long time. The $64 million question is - Why is this relevant now and why wasn´t it actionable before? The real answer remains - the goal now is overturning the results of the 2016 elections, this is collateral damage.

I thought we´re not supposed to rush to judgment unless it´s Moore or Trump. There must be a video of the incident making it impossible for Lauer to deny the charges.
So do we expect a public apology and an I-will-carry-on-and-earn-back-your-trust a la Franken? And, oh my. Don´t you think Megyn is salivating about her chances for reviving her tanked ratings by snagging the 1st interview with her colleague? NBC probably sees this as a win-win. They look all sanctimonious. Megyn gets a badly needed bump. Katie returns to fill in. And yes, Lauer makes a lateral move to sister channel MSNBC.

Trying to decide if I think it´s a purge conspiracy, or just creeps who thought being leftist meant they could do anything they wanted and get away with it. I´m kind of leaning toward the latter.
For one thing, the creeps saw how Slick Willy´s seriously bad behavior wasn´t just covered - it was excused and justified because of his support of abortion. Apparently, being pro-abortion does NOT cover a multitude of sins. Someone Else is in charge. Heh.

Why now as #9 asks, the left has seen their Russia BS backfire right in their faces essentially taking Hillary out in the process. Their new battlefront is the resumption of the sexual harassment charges against Trump. They are desperate and for once, clearly willing to accept casualties. They are preparing the battle field purging the open plane of all potential stumbling blocks, stones and fallen trees. The charge is coming and it will be relentless.

They absolutely in no way shape or from are willing to accept Trump as POTUS. They are emboldened by the Establishment GOP who like the Scottish Nobles in Braveheart sit proudly on their horses as if they are ready to take a stand while in reality they simply turn away and let meley commence.

What is going on?! I can´t believe the libtards are allowing all of their icons to be thrown under the bus for behavior that has been going on for decades just because they had a long overdue change of heart in tolerating such shenanigans.

There HAS to be a bigger goal. I had thought it was mostly to go after Roy Moore, but such a leftist bloodbath has to have a bigger ultimate target.

Trump survived one of these charges during the election. Do the leftoids have something else in the works for him? You know that they would consider losing dozens of "their" perverts in exchange for being rid of Trump to be an acceptable casualty rate.

When will we know?

Lauer is a consummate jerk. Good riddance.

However, as other posters have noted, I wonder if we will see a bunch of greedy women coming out of the woodwork and looking for a cash settlement. Where should we draw the line. Moore´s case is a he said/she said case. Is it true? Don´t know but it was 40 years ago.

What happens if a male boss fires an unproductive employee and she decides to make some stuff up? All she would have to say is he grabbed my bottom and the guy is in for a hell of a mess.

Re #24, there is really no place in any business environment for “consensual flirting. For far too many (male and female) it is a cutesy Step One toward Something More.

Strictly business is the way to go. An office is not intended to be a playground, a mixer, “The Dating Game”.

A month ago, when Roy Moore was accused of having pursued teenage girls while in his 30s, he equivocated. “Do you remember dating girls that young?” Sean Hannity asked him. Moore hedged: “Not generally, no. If I did, you know, I’m not going to dispute anything, but I don’t remember anything like that.” Hannity asked Moore about Debbie Gibson, who said she had dated Moore when she was 17 and he was 34. “I don’t remember going out on dates,” said Moore. “I knew her as a friend. If we did go out on dates, then we did.” Moore’s uncertainty

Senate Republicans will have decisions to make. First, they must decide what to say. Members who believe the most serious allegations against Moore and don’t think the passage of nearly 40 years matters should feel free to say Moore is unfit for the Senate and thus should resign. Once they say so, they will have done as much as Democrats did to John Conyers and Al Franken. And much more than they did to Bill Clinton. But if they declare Moore unfit, they should be prepared to explain why they consider Donald Trump fit for the presidency. The allegations of

Ed touched on this earlier. I think Franken’s play in his “resignation” speech was fiendishly clever. He’s quitting, yeah — but not for a few weeks, coincidentally after Alabama and Senate Republicans will have rendered their verdicts on Roy Moore. He was careful this morning not to admit to any wrongdoing, merely saying that he’d lost the confidence of his colleagues and therefore had to go. Imagine now that Moore wins and, as expected, McConnell’s caucus immediately starts hemming and hawing about whether he should be expelled. Some Republicans will deflect by insisting that the ethics committee should look into

If you thought the Alabama special Senate election couldn’t get any stranger, you were wrong. The race has been upended by a remarkably boneheaded move on the part of Democrat Doug Jones’s campaign. The Jones campaign is being accused of racism: [Jones is] now embroiled an upsetting controversy of his own: Black voters across Alabama are calling out a campaign flyer with extremely racist underpinnings. The Doug Jones for Senate Committee ad, which has gone viral on Twitter and was previously reported on by the Root, shows a picture of a Black man staring at the reader. Above reads, “Think

Rumors that the Republican National Committee was built on the site of an ancient moron burial ground gained new credence this week when it confirmed that it was renewing its support for Alabama´s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. I shouldn’t joke, because the worst thing about the RNC’s decision isn’t the stupidity — though the stupidity is real, and spectacular — but the moral obscenity. Last month, the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee pulled out of their joint fundraising agreements because Moore had been credibly accused by several women of having preyed upon them when they were teenagers,

Republicans rammed a bill through the House on Wednesday that would make it easier for gun owners to legally carry concealed weapons across state lines, the first significant action on guns in Congress since mass shootings in Nevada and Texas killed more than 80 people. The House approved the bill, 231-198, largely along party lines. The measure would allow gun owners with a state-issued concealed-carry permit to carry a handgun in any state that allows concealed weapons. It now goes to the Senate. Republicans said the reciprocity measure, a top priority of the National Rifle Association, would allow gun owners

Golly. It’s one thing to suspend a reporter for making an incredibly damaging error of basic fact on air. But to remove him from covering a particular subject altogether? That’s the sort of thing you might do if you’d concluded he’s incapable of covering that topic fairly. If it’s an innocent mistake borne of carelessness, there’s no need to declare certain topics off-limits. You do that only when you think the reporter’s view of that topic will necessarily compromise his judgment. And if you’ve got a reporter like that on staff and the topic happens to be the president and

There is a meme used by anti-Trump conservatives on Twitter. Whenever Trump steps in it, they tweet the words “But Gorsuch.” It is meant to mock Trump loyalists who hold out Gorsuch’s nomination as a Trump accomplishment that overshadows any of his failings. The meme can be quite amusing — one version has a road sign emblazoned with the words “But Gorsuch” close to

Legendary Metropolitan Opera conductor James Levine molested an Illinois teenager from the time he was 15 years old, sexual abuse that lasted for years and led the alleged victim to the brink of suicide, according to a police report obtained by The Post. The alleged abuse began while Levine was guest conductor at the Ravinia Music Festival outside Chicago, a post the wild-haired maestro held for two decades. The alleged victim came forward to the Lake Forest, Ill. Police Department in October 2016 to detail the molestation, including times when Levine would

Senate Republicans have approved the repeal of ObamaCare’s individual mandate as part of their tax-cut bill, a major step toward ending an unpopular part of the health-care law. “Families ought to be able to make decisions about what they want to buy and what works for them — not the government,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said, hailing the accomplishment. “I believe if people don’t want to buy the ObamaCare insurance, they shouldn’t have to pay a tax penalty to the IRS.” The Senate tax bill must still be reconciled with House legislation that does not include the mandate’s repeal. But

A North Texas city dropped English as its official language, a move dubbed by its mayor as heralding in a “new day” that was “welcoming” and “inclusive.” On Tuesday evening, the city council of Farmers Branch voted unanimously to repeal a 2006 ordinance that declared English as the municipality’s official language. That policy stated all city business must be conducted in English, the “common language” of Texas and the United States and said “the use of a common language removes barriers of misunderstanding” and enables “civic participation of all citizens, regardless of national origin, creed, race.” The Dallas Business Journal recently

Moments ago, the special counsel released Michael Flynn’s “Statement of the Offense.” This document lays out Flynn’s crimes in far greater detail than the short “information” released earlier today. It’s important to state this clearly as possible — the statement contains no evidence of collusion with Russia to influence the presidential election. Instead, it amplifies the fact that Flynn apparently lied about contacts that were lawful and appropriate. First, the statement says that the day after President Obama announced sanctions in response to Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 election, Flynn called a “senior official of the Presidential Transition

Jones’ competitiveness is a remarkable development in a deep red state that reflects just how badly Moore has been hurt by a sex scandal. But the race is still fluid.

President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

On Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour President Donald Trump should resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”

A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump´s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson´s policies. Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford´s letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority, and shows disdain for the State Department´s diplomatic work.

Several women who have accused US President Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment were expected Monday to call on Congress to open an investigation. A press conference by the women will be hosted by Brave New Films, a media company that recently produced a clip detailing sexual harassment or assault claims by 16 women against Trump. A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies.
