  • Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough fight on the air over what they knew about Matt Lauer

    "I've always heard stories about, you know, him kind of fooling around or whatever," Brzezinski said. Scarborough said he attended a Friars Club event several years ago for a roast of Lauer, and said many jokes were made about his sexual pursuits at work. "The most powerful people in media, and everybody that came up were making fun of Matt Lauer, not pushing himself on people, but the whole thing was, he does his show and then he has sex with people, with employees," Scarborough said.

    Matt Lauer was fired by NBC Wednesday over reports the “Today,” host had allegedly made unwanted sexual advances towards multiple women. Variety reports: As the co-host of NBC’s “Today,” Matt Lauer once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present. It included an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her, which left her mortified.On another day, he summoned a different female employee to his office, and then dropped his pants, showing her his penis. After the employee declined to do anything, visibly shaken, he reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act.He would sometimes quiz female producers about...

    It wasn’t just the executives that knew, either. Variety’s sources claim at least one of Lauer’s co-hosts knew full well what was happening, a point that might require answers from the women who claimed on air to know nothing about Lauer’s actions:

    The fast-moving national reckoning over sexual harassment in the workplace toppled another television news star on Wednesday when NBC fired Matt Lauer, the co-host of its most profitable franchise, “Today,” after an allegation of inappropriate sexual behavior with a subordinate. NBC News told its staff that it was firing Mr. Lauer some 34 hours after the woman and her lawyer visited the network headquarters in Midtown Manhattan to share details of her interactions with Mr. Lauer with company executives. On Wednesday, NBC received at least two more complaints related to Mr. Lauer, according to a person briefed on the network’s...
  • NBC Fires Matt Lauer for Sexual Misconduct, but the Worst Is Yet to Come

    The face of ‘Today’ is accused by at least one staffer of sexual misconduct, and several bombshell stories are expected to reveal more. In perhaps the most shocking media firing in years, NBC News Chairman Andy Lack on Wednesday fired the Today show’s Matt Lauer, the longtime star and mainstay of the news division’s most profitable franchise. In a statement read on the air at the top of the program by Lauer’s shaken co-host, Savannah Guthrie, Lack said the abrupt termination was prompted by a “detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer.”...

    Five years before NBC axed Matt Lauer amid allegations of sexual misconduct, former "Today" show anchor Katie Couric addressed her longtime co-host's most "annoying" habit. During a June 2012 appearance on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," Couric, 60, revealed Lauer, 59, got touchy with her behind during the show's "Plead the Fifth" segment. "He pinches me on the ass a lot," Couric said.

    Matt Lauer allegedly sexually assaulted a female NBC staffer during the Rio Olympics, sources told Page Six. The staffer, who has not been named and wishes to remain anonymous, complained to NBC bosses yesterday, prompting NBC News bosses to move fast and fire him. A source told Page Six, “An NBC staffer come forward with a claim that Matt sexually assaulted her at the Olympics. There have been rumors about Matt having affairs with subordinates at NBC for years, but those were believed to be consensual. This incident in Rio was not.” Another source tells us that the decision to...

    NBC has fired longtime ‘Today’ host Matt Lauer following allegations of workplace misconduct, the network announced on Wednesday. “We are devastated,” ‘Today’ co-host Savannah Gutherie said in a visually emotional statement. “All we can say is we are heartbroken.” Gutherie said that NBC News chairman Andy Lack informed employees of the decision on Tuesday night after having received a complaint about Lauer's behavior the night before. She read Lack's note on-air, noting that while the network says it had never received a complaint about Lauer before, it has "reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident. "We...

    This network, I tell you. Yes, they have their moments of clarity; even a blond squirrel finds a nut. But to say that NBC News or MSNBC don’t have a political point of view is just ridiculous. We all know it. Well, anyone who isn’t a snowflake progressive knows this. Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Budget and Management, surely knows this, with him calling out some of the questions during Sunday’s Meet the Press broadcast, where he plainly hinted at NBC’s slant on the issue. It was something that guest host Andrea Mitchell was not keen about,...

    Megyn Kelly is so toxic that she is reportedly dragging down NBC’s lucrative Today franchise as viewers are just tuning out NBC because of the vapid former Fox News talent. According to a report in the New York Post’s Page Six, “Kelly’s hour of ‘Today’ is down 32 percent compared to a year ago. And ‘Kathie Lee & Hoda’ is down 26 percent.” “Not only are ratings plummeting since Megyn Kelly joined the ‘Today’ franchise, but the numbers show Kelly’s lead-in has also affected Kathie Lee [Gifford] and Hoda Kotb’s show, which follows straight afterwards,” a source told the outlet....

    President Trump openly threatened Wednesday to go after the licenses of NBC News and the "Networks," as he ratcheted up his complaints about "Fake News." “With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” Trump tweeted. This was after he challenged the accuracy of an NBC News report that said he sought a “nearly tenfold increase” in the nuclear arsenal during a summer meeting. “Fake @NBCNews made up a story that I wanted a ‘tenfold’ increase in our U.S. nuclear arsenal. Pure fiction,...

    During the Clinton Administration, the Drudge Report was just an obscure news accumulator site until it became the first news outlet to report the fact that Slick Willie was having an affair with one of his interns in the Oval Office. We found out later that several fake reporters at major mainstream media outlets had had that story, but sat on it for months until the Drudge revelation force them to actually do their jobs. Fast forward to 2017, and we have NBC News issuing a report Tuesday morning, based on nothing but the alleged statements of several unidentified sources,...

  • Yet Another Anonymously Sourced Trump-Russia Story Falls Apart

    09/08/2017 7:58:26 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 12 replies ^ | Peter Hasson
    Once again, a huge Trump-Russia story that relied upon anonymous sources has fallen apart. NBC News dropped what the network hyped as a “potential bombshell” last week. “Manafort Notes From Russian Meet Contain Cryptic Reference to ‘Donations,'” the original headline read. The story claimed that Manafort’s notes from the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with White House aide Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer included the word “donations” near a reference to the Republican National Committee. NBC began walking back the “potential bombshell” almost immediately, issuing a correction the same day noting that the word “donation” didn’t actually...

    On Wednesday, published an Associated Press dispatch on the bribery trial of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez (N.J.), but there was one huge problem in that Menendez was labeled a Republican. Translation? NBC News saw no reason to engage in basic proofreading or got caught red-handed in the act of liberal bias. The unauthored post sat for well over two hours before being changed. offered a correction at the bottom of the story: “CORRECTION (Sept. 6, 2017, 5:35 p.m.): An earlier version of this article misstated the party affiliation of Menendez. He is a Democrat, not a Republican.” Seeing...
