Embattled NBC executives have been falling over themselves insisting they had no idea about Matt Lauers pervy past. But if anyone doubts that New Yorks media elite was aware of Lauers reputation, they should look no further than a top-secret roast of Lauer that took place in October 2008.
The notorious event -- now legendary in New York media circles -- pushed the outer limits of sexist, racist, homophobic and obscene jokes -- and left little doubt that Lauers colleagues knew NBCs biggest star had a troubled marriage and a wandering eye.
Last week, NBCs own Joe Scarborough, who attended the roast but said he left early, feeling uncomfortable, brought it up on Morning Joe. Lauers peccadillos, he said, were not just known about. At the roast, they were celebrated.
The whole theme was that he does the show and then he has sex with people, with employees, Scarborough said. So was this whispered behind closed doors? No. It was shouted from the mountaintops and everybody laughed about it.

Pretty degenerate stuff.
NBC is Comcast.
Wow. It was very out.
Like Chris Plante said, it’s like the german towns-people living downwind from a concentration camp and within eyeshot of the smoke stacks feigning ignorance of all that was going on.
I was there that afternoon. Joe Scarborough wasn’t. Or, he had a worst seat than I did which is pretty rich. AND NO ONE WALKED OUT. HE’S LYING.
Nasty culture. They all think they’re SO elite and sophisticated to be joking about anal sex and more behind closed doors. Aren’t THEY the cool kids!
Link does not work. What did they say?
Somehow I can't imagine this stuff coming from Edward R. Morrow or John Cameron Swayze, NBC's first news anchor. This filth is so beyond the pale that those gentlemen could not have even imagined it.
What is especially sickening to read this, is how easily Lauer, Couric and rest strip the humanity from others, even those in the room who were embarrassed or humiliated by their verbal vomit. These are the liberals who profess to love humanity and yet they don't have a clue as to what that entails.
oh, well, i can hardly wait to see the morning news shows cover this.... ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Link seems to be working - the formatting is odd though, keep scrolling down.
I can’t post at FR much of the content of this article, it’s extremely obscene, even in this sanitized version.
Adulterous pig Joe Scarbrough walked out because he “felt uncomfortable”—biggest LMAO and ROTFLOL I’ve had in a long time!!!!
Prim and proper Joe, clutching his pearls, passing out on his fainting couch, LOLOLOL.
Scarbrough is a malignant narcissist. His BS is full of BS.
They were all attacking the Republicans and Donald Trump for being anti-women.
When you promote and surround yourself in all of the Hollywood peverseness (Binge watching Game of Thrones, Moonlight wins Academy Award, another perverse movie up for Academy, pushing Homosexual agenda, etc...) you are more than likely going to try and engage in similar deviant behavior. Are we really suprised?
Wow. And Couric and Curry were right in the thick of it with their jokes. Unbelievable.
It was in the afternoon?
I wonder whether there is any liberal in this country who is thoroughly disgusted with the hypocrisy of the left?
