Matt Lauer’s firing casts NBC’s call on
Ronan Farrow in a whole new light

New York Post, by Michael Starr

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 11/29/2017 8:08:37 PM

After Matt Lauer was unceremoniously fired from the “Today” show Wednesday, you had to wonder: Why did NBC smother Ronan Farrow’s explosive, months-long investigation into Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assaults and predatory behavior — an investigation undertaken by one of its own employees? (Farrow is a “contributor” to NBC News; his “Undercover With Ronan Farrow” reports have aired, ironically, on the “Today” show.) Did NBC know that, in Lauer, it was harboring its own tainted star — and that Farrow’s Weinstein piece could, perhaps, lead back to a co-anchor of its cash-cow morning show? It just didn’t make sense, then or now,

Once again I say this needs to be just as much about NBC as it is Matt Lauer! Knowingly enabling this guy should make NBC execs just as culpable. Knowing about it, not doing anything about it and covering for him IS enabling. They need to be part of the food chain! Investigate!

Wow!! What a turnabout! Can I have the movie rights?!? And hey, while we´re at it, why not give Lauer´s gig to Ronan? Frank would be proud!

Toxic Hatred of Trump a

When Barack Obama was first elected in 2008, I felt as disappointed as I did when Bill Clinton was elected in 1992. The disappointment was, however, with the voters who didn´t seem to care about the flimsy performance records these men had and which I always use to determine a candidate´s qualifications. Gov. Clinton of Arkansas had a dismal record in office with that state being ranked 49th out of 50 and his campaign was inundated with numerous scandal rumors of sexual misbehavior. Yet a relative told me she voted for him because Bush ‘41 was too old even though he

On Friday, CNN peddled an incorrect report about Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks. They allege that the then-presidential candidate, his son, and other folks within their inner circle received an email that contained a decryption key to a trove of documents from Wikileaks. The problem was this email was already made public—and the date was wrong. Here’s the correction: Correction: This story has been corrected to say the date of the email was September 14, 2016, not September 4, 2016. The story also changed the headline and removed a tweet from Donald Trump Jr., who posted a message about

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday he was ousted as head of President Donald Trump’s transition due in part to his opposition to the hiring of Michael Flynn as national security adviser. “I thought it was a significant reason,” Christie said at an unrelated press conference at his office in Trenton. The governor, one of the first establishment Republicans to back Trump during the primary and still one of the president´s most loyal supporters, was chairman of the transition until he was unceremoniously fired just days after the election and replaced with Vice President Mike Pence. Christie said it was clear

Donald Trump Jr. asked a Russian lawyer at the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting whether she had evidence of illegal donations to the Clinton Foundation, the lawyer told the Senate Judiciary Committee in answers to written questions obtained exclusively by NBC News. The lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, told the committee that she didn´t have any such evidence, and that she believes Trump misunderstood the nature of the meeting after receiving emails from a music promoter promising incriminating information on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump´s Democratic opponent. Once it became apparent that she did not have meaningful information about Clinton, Trump s

OAKLAND, Calif. — If ownership is already convinced McAdoo is going to be dismissed after the season, there might be no reason to wait until Jan. 1, especially considering three of the last four games are at MetLife Stadium, and these final home games could spark some of the ugliest moments in franchise history. An ESPN report stated McAdoo “could be’’ fired as soon as Monday. Fans are irate at the way McAdoo ended Eli Manning’s 210-game starting streak, even though co-owner John Mara was completely on board with getting a look at Geno Smith — the starter Sunday for a 24-17

Former “Today” show co-host Meredith Vieira laughed with Matt Lauer about the time she went into his office and found a “huge bag of sex toys,” in a resurfaced video from 2016. Lauer appeared on “The Meredith Vieira Show” with his then-co-host Savannah Guthrie in May 2016, and Vieira recalled the time she went "snooping" in his office and discovered the bag of sex toys. “You had a huge bag of sex toys, yes you did, in your closet, Matt,” Vieira told her studio audience. The audience audibly groaned as an uncomfortable Guthrie shook her head and cringed at the

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Faye Gary, a former police officer with the Gadsden Police Department in Alabama, has been featured in the news in recent days making the unsubstantiated claim that she was told to protect young cheerleaders from Roy Moore at local ballgames. Speaking in a Breitbart News interview on Wednesday, Gary falsely claimed that Moore “wanted to keep segregation here in the south.” She then claimed that Moore “hates Jews. He hates blacks. He hates Muslims. He hates gays.” When challenged for specifics, Gary conceded that “I don’t know exactly what he said about Jews, but he doesn’t like

Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team has postponed an anticipated grand jury testimony linked to his investigation into Michael Flynn amid growing indications of possible plea deal discussions. Additional witnesses were expected to be questioned soon including a public relations consultant hired by Flynn´s lobbying firm who was given an early December date deadline to appear before the grand jury, according to a person at the company. Ahead of the delay, the impression was that the testimony needed to happen soon, the source said. "Time seems to be of the essence," said the source at Sphere Consulting, the PR firm where

Sexual Harassment? Depends on the Victim

It seems as if every day, another celebrity is being charged with sexual harassment ranging from several decades past to just a few months ago. Although I am a ´Me Too´ since childhood, I´m not that quick to lump myself in with those women making these charges and it would be prudent to examine carefully the circumstances of these incidents. I´ve never been a fan of Al Franken but I´ve noticed that those photos showing his groping of women also show those women smiling as if they´re in on the joke. Arianna Huffington and Joy Behar didn´t seem to be traumatized by

‘Hooker’ says Spitzer liked sex toys,
being walked on leash: court docs

Disgraced “Luv Gov” Eliot Spitzer likes to take long romantic walks — at the end of a leash, new court papers claim. The hooker-happy former governor’s fetishes include a penchant for paying “young girls” to lead him around “on all fours” like a dog — and use kinky sex toys on him, former escort Svetlana Travis Zakharova alleged. Zhakharova, who last month struck a misdemeanor plea bargain after being charged with extorting $400,000 from Spitzer, filed the stunningly revealing papers in Manhattan Supreme Court, seeking to lift a gag order imposed as part of her prosecution.

Sex, lies & excuses: Partisan

As the sex scandals continue their relentless forward march, early efforts at a course correction are beginning to emerge. Some of these efforts are necessary and involve making distinctions — distinctions between, say, felonious assault, which should lead to prison, and really gross workplace behavior, which should lead to serious disciplinary action but should probably fall short of complete ruination. The danger, however, is that these distinctions get drawn in such a way that they protect one set of offenders and not the other — purely on the grounds that the protected set is made up of people you like or

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski argued President Trump’s tweet about Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) constitutes sexual harassment and that people who work around the president and don’t try to get him to delete the tweet don’t care about the country or women.

The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for

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!”

In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair.

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.

A suspect is in custody following an explosion at one of New York City’s busiest transit hubs in Times Square during Monday morning’s rush hour, police said. The bombing suspect was identified as Akayed Ullah, 27, according to New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill. Ullah had an explosive device strapped to his body, O’Neill said. What do we know about the suspect? Law enforcement sources told Fox News Ullah lives in Brooklyn. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the explosion was an “attempted terrorist attack.” Sources told the Associated Press that Ullah may be of Bangladeshi descent. What else do we know about the

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. During Trump’s presidential campaign, more than

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused
