Accuracy in Media

MSNBC confirmed that the network made a separation-related payment to a female staffer after she accused MSNBC host Chris Matthews of making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company of others.

According to The Daily Caller, the network paid the accuser $40,000 to settle her claim–a figure the network disputes.

Matthews was reportedly reprimanded by MSNBC for his actions.

NBC News has been reeling from sexual harassment claims, with the biggest being Today host Matt Lauer, who was fired after his serial sexual harassment of women at the network became public.
