NBC Ideological News Icon Matt Lauer Fired For Sexual Harassment….

The progressive ‘gender strategy’ takes another of their own.  Following a meeting between NBC lawyers and a woman with very specific details about Matt Lauer sexually assaulting  her in 2014, the sanctimonious Matt Lauer has been fired from NBC.

The apex narrative engineers are having a tough time keeping their own creations from destroying themselves.

NEW YORK (AP) — NBC News fired “Today” show host Matt Lauer for what it said Wednesday was “inappropriate sexual behavior” with a colleague, making him perhaps the most familiar figure in America brought down so far by the misconduct allegations that have swept through Hollywood and the media over the past two months.

At NBC, news chief Andrew Lack said in a memo to the staff that NBC received a complaint about Lauer’s behavior on Monday and determined it was a clear violation of company standards. NBC said the misconduct started when Lauer and a network employee were stationed at the Sochi Olympics in 2014 and continued beyond that assignment.

While it was the first complaint ever lodged against Lauer, Lack said, “we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.” (read more)

      Yes. They made a female reporter state on air tonight, that no one ever complained to present management about Lauer before this, but that does not account for how long this was going on right under the noses of people who call themselves reporters.
      They HAD TO know.

          I too was a chemist and had to walk through the engineering department. I never let them phase me. I gave it right back to them and they laughed.

          One of my jobs was in an all male factory. The accountant and plant manager’s secretary were the ONLY other women in the entire plant and they were in the management ‘tower’ As QC manager and trouble shooter I spent a lot of time on the floor and had zero problem with the guys.

          I worked in eight different factories and NONE of the guys gave me a bit of trouble. The women on the other hand…. Well let’s just say I dealt with a lot of backstabbing little ‘hillary’s’

          That is absolutely insulting. In 30 years of work as an engineer I never once saw misbehavior. As a supervisor I would never allow it, but then I had no need to deal with it as it never happened.

          On the other hand, my dad left a Fed government job because of discrimination by a boss who was a woman and played favorites with men that did her ‘favors.’

          So, keep your insults to yourself.

          Not for nothing, but while I can imagine feeling helpless as a woman in such a situation, as a woman, I sometimes find it difficult to feel badly for some of the women and the situations they report they found themselves in.

          Letting yourself be used, whether on a ‘casting couch’, or a date, or at a college party, only to feel remorse afterwards IS on the woman. The important thing is to live and learn and grow from such self disrespect.

          Repeated occurrences of being used as such is really on the woman. And says a great deal about her character, or lack thereof. We agree it says MUCH about the man’s, but it does about the woman’s as well. We don’t hear this side of the coin when these accusations come out.

          And I know from where I speak, and this is my own opinion based on that knowledge/experience.

              ^^^ Yes G. Combs. I once called the local police department to ask for advice concerning my daughter’s job as a sort of greeter/seater at a jazz club that served alcohol, when she was in high school and working hard to buy a car etc. The policeman who was kind enough to advise me out of his experience told me that the odds of sexual assault are much higher in any situation where alcohol is being served or drunk.
              Daughter later went on to train as a bartender, just because it’s a good skill to have; but we both took the policeman’s advice into consideration. Watch out wherever people are drunk/impaired — not only their driving but other behaviors may also be out of whack
              ****
              Which brings to mind something a different daughter told me after taking a trip to Washington related to an activity she had been in — she said “Momma, the people in Washington DRINK. I mean, they drink *a lot*.” She was fine on that trip, but I’d say where the drunken politicians are gathered, might be good to watch out for trouble

              maga, despite women’s lib being alive and ‘well’, women haven’t been liberated, i agree.

              Young women have no, or too few, examples in society to look up to in regards to how to be assertive as well as self-respectful. TO be confident and strong without being militant and brash.

              I think that’s too sad. Sadly, many women (young and not so young) ‘go along to get along’ and as seen via recent disclosures, ‘to get ahead’.

              I hope that tide is turning because of all the cr@p that’s spilling out all over the media.

      • To my friends commenting above.
        Please don’t pile on Lou. I don’t believe Lou was blaming women. Let’s expand what (I believe) Lou is trying to say.

        Men receive “vibes” from women. These vibes are a combination of dress and body language/attitude, both are forms of communication.
        A girl, however attractive to men, who dresses conservatively (yet elegant and or beautifully) and emanates an air of SELF-CONFIDENCE will not attract lewd behaviour.
        Men tend to admire these women from a distance but will not attempt any lewd behaviour against them (there are always azzholes).

        Men will target women who display a lack of self-confidence because they are easy to manipulate. THE WORST THING TO DO IS TO LOOK STRAIGHT AHEAD PRETENDING THOSE MEN DON’T EXIST. That’s like walking quickly to your car clutching your handbag late at night. Demonstrates weakness that men prey upon.

        Ask yourself this question. Would men (other than utter azzholes) have a go at someone like Melania Trump? I’d say no because they know she wouldn’t stand for it and that there would be consequences to their bad behaviour.

        So when Lou says teach your girls to behave properly, I don’t think (s)he is saying teach your daughters not to behave like $luts.

The one I attended had lots of roll playing so we could practice what we learned.

      I just saw a segment with Melissa Francis on FBN. She had Joe Concha on as a guest. NBCs story about how they acted swiftly and gosh this was their first complaint on Lauer is all baloney.

      There have been many complaints over many years, but their culture is all about protecting the big name talent so you low level producers and others shut up and go away you are expendable.

      When I first heard about the remote door lock button I thought, well, maybe possibly it was some kind of deterrent for active shooter situations… Nope. He used it to trap women in his office and at least one woman is on the record as having been trapped, he dropped his drawers and ordered her to perform a sex act on him.

      Apparently there are a lot of stories in the Naked City and this is just one of them. This guy is a serial sexual offender and a predator in my opinion. This goes WAY beyond some creepy guy leering at your bosom or patting you on the behind. This is horrible, and the people in charge at NBC need to be ousted for allowing this to occur while they ignore it.

    • A witch hunt would involve a situation where someone is persecuted for holding opinions or views that are unpopular or outside the mainstream. So far, none of those accused have denied they participated in actual objectionable behavior, except Judge Moore. This will become a witch hunt if innocent men or women are persecuted and suffer consequences for unobjectionable opinions or harmless behavior. The current bunch of slimeball Leftists are deserving of their fate by their own behavior, made worse by hypocrisy. However, this has the potential to metastasize and hurt the innocent.

        I’m wondering if Lauer’s bosses were told to fire him asap, or be confronted with the public opening of a “sealed Federal endightment”. There are reportedly around 2000 of them now out there. That threat would surely light a fire under the bosses.

      However, in this case, evidence suggest NBC knew. Laura’s coworkers knew. His bosses knew. He is a douche bag of the highest order and he deserves all scorn and derision heaped upon him. Also, do you really think NBC would have fired him like this if they didn’t have evidence?

    I saw a retweet from James Woods regarding the speed with which NBC fired Matt Lauer being in direct proportion to how much they are paying him. I thought the same thing when I first heard the shocking news this morning. No idea if NBC is required to continue to pay Lauer until the end of his contract based on these charges, but if so, it’s a quick and easy way to cut ballooning salaries of their stars. I don’t think the media is nearly as worried about bad press and bad image as cutting operating costs.

    If I were Megyn Kelly, I’d be very worried. She is not a popular person at NBC and has done zero for their ratings. They’d love to get rid of her I’m sure and this scandal won’t be limited to men only much longer.

    The reality is that cable TV and most media programming are boring and nobody cares anyway. Actually the sexual harassment stuff is the most publicity they’ve received in some time. Still boring. Nobody is as interesting as our President!

    I’m linking below an article from Variety which is probably not a publication many of us here read! They have been on the Matt Lauer story digging for a couple of months and what they uncovered is worth reading.

    To summarize, there is an incredible amount of misconduct here. It sounds like women repeatedly went through channels for reporting, but the culture at NBC was protect the name talent.

    Misconduct would be how I would characterize the low level stuff, like the colleague who received a sex toy from Lauer as a gift along with a very detailed note explaining exactly where and how he would like to use it on her. (Side Note: Can’t think of one guy I have ever worked with where I would have found that amusing or enticing.)

    But it gets much worse than that. And many women DIDN’T use the HR channels for reporting because they were afraid or intimidated. He is apparently quite a huge jerk– mean, belittling, crude–and was totally enabled by senior management.

    I haven’t been as sympathetic about the harrassment claims that have been flooding out over the last month as maybe I should have been because I was a young woman in the days before this behavior had a name much less any sort of “reporting process” or punishment for it. You just had to deal with it, and I really believed this kind of thing had to be very rare now or even a bit exaggerated since we’ve all been schooled in identifying it and dealing with it.

    Now, I guess I have come to the conclusion that there are environments such as politics and show biz where people are so powerful that they can do whatever they want.

    Lauer and his remote door lock really, really got to me. If he did rape women there I hope someone has the goods on him and can bring criminal charges.

          Not so. Photographic evidence is his problem, plus he admitted it.

      If what is alleged is true about Lauer, too bad his rape victims didn’t give him some severe facial injuries preventing him from any tv appearances.

      How the hell did Lauer get a remote lock installed under his desk? Did management know, did management pay?

    His good fortune was in having stick-like bird legs that allow him to wear the latest in male fashion and look pretty good doing it. Lauer is a sharp dresser. His bad luck, is in being a predatory media pervert at a time when that is really out of fashion. What a disgusting industry.

  22. I’m sure many here followed the Catholic priest sexual abuse scandals that erupted in the early 2000s.After several heinous cases received huge publicity the focus soon shifted to the coverups over decades orchestrated by some bishops. Cardinal Law in Boston forced out in 2002 and disgraced. Others followed.

    QUESTION : Will the focus shift to higher ups in the media and Hollyweird for their coverups?

    My gut says resoundingly, NO.

    I am beginning to feel very uncomfortable with this new trend.

    If complaints were lodged at the time and there was nothing done about it by the powers at the time then the complaint has merit. But if something happened 20 years ago and nothing was said or done about it. Sorry. The statute of limitations for a felony is 7 years. Embarrassed? Not in the penal code as a time extender.

    In California we had this weird thing going on with Child Care providers being accused without any proof of molesting kids, and when it was all said and done innocent people had their lives destroyed. Everyone was being accused, all across the state.

    I’m just saying that the public gets just like a bunch of high schoolers with rumors and gossip escalating out-of-control really quick. Due process is important. People lie. People BS. It’s a human thing, not a gender thing. Some people just want attention or money, or both.

    Be careful. These morons might mess with the wrong person and create a tragedy.

      The daycare witchhunt did unfold with a similar fury didn’t it? At some point, these events take on a life of their own. And yet was anything solved? There is a lot of talk of pedo abuses to this day.

      In today’s scandals, no one asks how Harvey/Kevin/Garrison/Matt was able to operate in a climate that looked the other way. These guys knew they could get away with all their grotesque behavior. They counted on it — for years.

    A video of the longtime NBC host Matt Lauer mocking sexual harassment in the workplace in a farcical sketch on the “Today” show in 2012 resurfaced on Wednesday in light of the network firing him after receiving a complaint of “inappropriate sexual behavior.”

    The four-minute segment, which “The Daily Show” posted on Twitter after the news of Lauer’s firing broke, featured Lauer pretending to report his colleague Willie Geist for swatting Lauer’s backside with a handful of folded-up papers.

    In a mock interview set to dramatic music, “national investigative correspondent” Jeff Rossen introduced Lauer as “the owner of that derriere, breaking his silence.” Lauer then recounted the pretend incident in a solemn tone.

    “I was standing by the doorway in the vestibule, and Willie came out, and I just said, ‘Hi, hi, Willie, how are you?’ and I thought that would be the end of it,” Lauer said in the segment.

    “He reached out, and, you know,” he said, trailing off in faux anguish.

    When Rossen questioned Lauer about whether he had somehow provoked the behavior — an apparent nod to outrage over instances of victim-blaming — Lauer said he had done nothing out of the ordinary.

    “That’s impossible,” he said. “I didn’t do anything differently. I wasn’t wearing a different cologne. It just, it just — this was uninitiated.”

    Lauer went on to jokingly mourn that Geist had not called or written him since the incident, saying “the abandonment” was the worst part of the encounter.

    The video in the “investigation” showed Lauer returning Geist’s pat by swatting his colleague on the rear.

    The sketch later cut to a cameo with the actor Dustin Hoffman, who asked, “Did Willie swat him with his willy?” to the raucous laughter of Lauer, Geist, and their fellow anchors Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie on the “Today” stage.

    In recent weeks, Hoffman has faced allegations of sexual harassment and groping. The actor apologized in a statement.

    “I have the utmost respect for women,” Hoffman said, adding: “I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am.”

    The “Today” sketch isn’t the only clip to resurface on Wednesday. TMZ posted a 2012 interview with Katie Couric, who hosted “Today” with Lauer for years, in which she told Bravo’s Andy Cohen that Lauer “pinches me on the a– a lot.”

    On Wednesday morning’s show, a visibly shaken Guthrie read a statement from NBC News’ chairman, Andy Lack, saying the network had “reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”

    Has there been one.single.solitary.second of this recent display of mass histrionics devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of these people?

    No.
    Why? B/c it is all about the media, all media, all the time.
    Not one of these over-privileged self-centered narcissists ever consider that THEY have the problem, that they ARE the problem.

    These ppl are so easily diagnosed, even a child could do it.

    Histrionic Personality Disorder
    “deeply ingrained patterns of behavior and the manner in which individuals perceive, relate to, and think about themselves and their world.”

    “Personality disorders are rigid, inflexible and maladaptive…exhibit excessive emotionality…and are attention seekers. People with this disorder are uncomfortable or feel unappreciated when they are not the center of attention.”

    “…constant seeking of approval or attention, self-dramatization, theatricality, and striking self-centeredness or sexual seductiveness in inappropriate situations, including social, occupational, and professional relationships…Opinions are easily influenced by other people, but difficult to back up with details”

    “Therapy with people with this diagnosis is often challenging because they may exaggerate their symptoms or ability to function. They may also be emotionally needy and challenge the boundaries set up by the therapist.”
    https://www.psychologytoday.com/conditions/histrionic-personality-disorder

    Not to mention what these ppl are doing to actual, real survivors of actual, real sexual trauma. There are those who, for their own personal reasons, choose to remain silent, deal with it, find solace in Our Savior and give thanks to Him, and carry on.

    These media ppl need to shut up and go away.
    Please.

    Regina posted this video on the daily thread. (btw, is the MI governor able to name Conyers’ replacement?)

    Of course there are some legitimate beefs and victims coming forth, and some women who were physically trapped against their will. But, there are also a lot of women who are, essentially, experiencing buyer’s remorse for bargains they made years ago. Something about this compulsive outing fest is very disturbing and being lead in disturbing directions.

    This AG, for example, wants to conclude that men in general are at fault. It would NEVER occur to her to take any responsibility for having created (yes, created!!) and maintaining (yes, maintaining!!) women’s behavior since Women’s Lib! Funny isn’t it how the furious unwinding of ossified hypocracy is largely centered in (thus far) liberal institutions – the media, Dem politics, and entertainment.

    Liberals got everything they wanted in the workplace, largely as a result of their feminism agitation (remember the years-long ERA?) What have they done with their independence all these years? As we are seeing, many women induldged badly behaved men and were willing to strike seedy bargains to get ahead, while gnashing their teeth under their breath and in whispers among themselves. Yet they went along … So long as they got those jobs!! In other words, they wanted those coveted positions more than they wanted to discourage or stop the bad bahavior if it meant closing down the pipeline to success! Collusion worked for them and was their chosen path. If you could play the game, you could win, and they did!

    Camille Paglia often talks about how the campus was reformed from a paternalistic place of curfews to a free-love place where women finally gained an equal footing to men during the 70s. And yet, look at the campus today – a daycare center of helpless toddlers unable to think for themselves, terrified of words, and who see rapists behind every bush.

    It’s not “penises” Dana – it’s Toxic Feminism!
