    Matt Lauer Fired by NBC Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

    https://pagesix.com/2017/11/29/matt-...xual-behavior/
    NBC has fired news anchor Matt Lauer over sexual harassment allegations by an employee, the network’s president for news said in a memo to his staff on Wednesday.

    The “Today” show host was canned for “inappropriate workplace conduct,” according to NBC Chairman Andy Lack.

    “On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer. It represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment,” Lack wrote.

    Why are people shocked by this? Their will be plenty more people to be exposed. Think about the amount of CEO's that have gotten caught that havent even made the news. I presume this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Matt Lauer fired from NBC's 'Today'

    I doubt any man is shocked. We know how we think about sex and women. Acting out aggressively is a whole other ballgame.

    To think, the number of these guys who have wives and daughters of their own. How'd they like some scumbag to do that to them.

    I tell my wife, she's lucky she landed a "good guy" like me with all this filth out there.

    Three women have come forward to accuse “Today” co-anchor Matt Lauer, who was fired Wednesday, of sexual harassment, according to a report.

    Lauer was accused of giving one woman a sex toy as a present — with a note saying he wanted to use it on her, according to Variety.

    He also allegedly summoned another female colleague to his office, then dropped his pants and showed her his penis.

    Variety Exclusive

    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 who they’d slept with, offering to trade names. And he loved to engage in a crass quiz game with men and women in the office: “fuck, marry or kill,” in which he would identify the female co-hosts that he’d most like to sleep with.

    These accounts of Lauer’s behavior at NBC are the result of a two-month investigation by Variety, with dozens of interviews with current and former staffers. Variety has talked to three women who identified themselves as victims of sexual harassment by Lauer, and their stories have been corroborated by friends or colleagues that they told at the time. They have asked for now to remain unnamed, fearing professional repercussions.

    On Wednesday, NBC announced that Lauer was fired from “Today.” It was a stunning move for a co-host who was widely considered the crown jewel of the network’s news division, with a $25 million annual salary. The cause of his dismissal, according to sources, was a detailed complaint from another current NBC employee about inappropriate sexual conduct from Lauer that started on a trip at the Sochi Olympics in 2014 and continued for several months.
    Lauer, who was paranoid about being followed by tabloid reporters, grew more emboldened at 30 Rockefeller Center as his profile rose following Katie Couric’s departure from “Today” in 2006. His office was in a secluded space, and he had a button under his desk that allowed him to lock his door from the inside without getting up. This afforded him the assurance of privacy. It allowed him to welcome female employees and initiate inappropriate contact while knowing nobody could walk in on him, according to two women who were sexually harassed by Lauer.
