Accuracy in Media

NBC News has fired longtime Today show co-host Matt Lauer over a sexual harassment allegation, according to a memo from NBC News president Andrew Lack obtained by The New York Times.

“On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer,” the memo read.

Lack said the allegation against Lauer “represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.”

“While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he’s been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”

Lauer’s co-host, Savannah Guthrie, announced the news on Today Wednesday morning, telling the audience that she was “heartbroken” over the news.

Last week, CBS Morning News co-host Charlie Rose was fired over sexual harassment allegations brought forth by several women who had worked for him.

    This guilty-as-charged hysteria can only be the Democrats’ latest attempt to corral women, who have wandered off and no longer vote based only on abortion (either because they think abortion laws will never be overturned or because they have come to their senses and see it as murder).

    Anyway, this hysteria will lead to a complete Communist take-over soon because most women are addled by socialist policies and promises — like a bright, shiny object. So, to restate my point, this is why so many men of the Left are going along with the ruse, for which they will be richly rewarded.

    This is, hands down, the single dumbest comment I’ve read on the internet this week. You’re a WINNER!

    Hmmm. People you perceive as “left wing” are immediately fired when sexual assault allegations are made against them. Yet, Trump remains president and Moore will be elected to the Senate next week. Do you REALLY not see the problem here?

    No, I don’t. The Communists started the “sexual assault” bullshit as part of Marxism’s abolition of the family, you moron.

    Most people outgrow their third-grade tendency to spout off nonsense as a considered rebuttal. What caused your stunted growth and lack of maturity? Were you dropped on your head, or were you just a red-diaper baby?

    You’re still avoiding the issue. Enjoy Senator Moore until he’s impeached. Oh, and President Trump, too. LOLOL
