    In a fawning profile for NBC News Foreign Correspondent Andrea Mitchell for the latest issue of InStyle magazine, colleague and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd gushed that the veteran liberal reporter was “like the LeBron James of foreign correspondents.” He added: “It’s the same awe that I have watching him play after all these years. Why are you still this good? Aren’t you tired?” On Tuesday’s Today show, correspondent Stephanie Gosk touted the article: “The magazine hits news stands on July 6. It includes profiles of dozens of women, from Serena Williams to Aly Raisman to our own Andrea...

    Not that this will come as a surprise, but it is entertaining to watch NBC’s John Heilemann gleefully explain how “we” have a great opportunity to bludgeon President Trump and the GOP with the faux crisis at the border. In a mere 47 seconds, he gives the game away on a couple of fronts:

    NBC was slammed on Twitter Wednesday after it conducted an internal investigation into how the network handled allegations of sexual harassment against Matt Lauer and found there is "no evidence" any NBC senior executives knew about Lauer's behavior. Lauer was fired from NBC in November after allegations of sexual harassment became public and scandal permeated the widely watched "Today" morning show, the Washington Post reports. "We found no evidence indicating that any NBC News or Today Show leadership, HR or others in positions of authority in the News Division received any complaints about LauerÂ’s workplace behavior prior to Nov. 27,...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan has been hired as a paid contributor by NBC and MSNBC, the media company announced. He led the agency from 2013 to early 2017, under President Barack Obama. Brennan’s appointment comes amid the outcry over the memorandum released by House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-California) alleging impropriety by the FBI and DOJ while investigating claims of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

    Trayvon sparked a movement that stands up to fascism and white supremacy. We need to hold him in our memories. February 5th marks five years and 339 days since Trayvon Martin’s memorial service; it would also be his 23rd birthday. The day is necessarily somber. Nearly six years ago, Trayvon’s death at the hands of white supremacist vigilante violence indicated the beginning of an escalating attack on Black lives and demanded that this nation confront its overtly racist past and present. The urgency of #Justice4TrayvonMartin turned into a global urgency to fight for Black lives — one which persists today....

    Katie Couric has finally broken her silence over Matt Lauer’s sexual assault accusations and his firing from the “Today” show. “The whole thing has been very painful for me,” Couric told People Magazine. “The accounts I’ve read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it’s completely unacceptable that any women at the ‘Today’ show experienced this kind of treatment.” Couric co-hosted NBC’s “Today” show with Lauer for 15 years, but left in May 2006 to anchor “CBS Evening News.” “I had no idea this was going on during my tenure or after I left,” she continued. “I think...

    MSNBC Host Chris Matthews runs an at times openly derisive and brazenly sexist news operation that has led at least some staffers to describe themselves as victims of “battered wives syndrome,” according to three of his show’s guests and two former producers who spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller. Two former NBC producers independently alleged Matthews would rate the looks of his female guests on a scale and said Matthews was so abusive that staff joked about being battered women. The interviews in total paint Matthews as a tyrant liable to fly off the handle at the slightest mistake, who...

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had some fun with NBC reporters who questioned her on the tax plan and the government funding agreement. “Hopefully you’re one of the NBC reporters that’s getting one of those bonuses,” Sanders quipped to NBC White House reporter Kristen Welker on Thursday after a group of reporters asked her questions on the White House driveway. “Not yet,” Welker replied. Comcast announced on Wednesday that their employees, which includes MSNBC, CNBC, and NBC, would get a $1,000 bonus after the tax plan passed.

    Donald Trump this morning tweeted another love letter to Fox News Channel’s morning show Fox and Friends, faux-asking “Was @foxandfriends just named the most influential show in news?” On Wednesday, web site Mediaite had named the FNC morning show the Most Influential In News Media for 2017, topping a list that also included, in reverse order, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Matt Drudge, FNC star Sean Hannity, and CNN chief Jeff Zucker. Mistaking Mediaite’s “most influential” for “best,” Trump crowed that the Trump News Network morning show hosts “deserve it” and that “the many Fake News Hate Shows should study your formula...

    "I've always heard stories about, you know, him kind of fooling around or whatever," Brzezinski said. Scarborough said he attended a Friars Club event several years ago for a roast of Lauer, and said many jokes were made about his sexual pursuits at work. "The most powerful people in media, and everybody that came up were making fun of Matt Lauer, not pushing himself on people, but the whole thing was, he does his show and then he has sex with people, with employees," Scarborough said.

    The face of ‘Today’ is accused by at least one staffer of sexual misconduct, and several bombshell stories are expected to reveal more. In perhaps the most shocking media firing in years, NBC News Chairman Andy Lack on Wednesday fired the Today show’s Matt Lauer, the longtime star and mainstay of the news division’s most profitable franchise. In a statement read on the air at the top of the program by Lauer’s shaken co-host, Savannah Guthrie, Lack said the abrupt termination was prompted by a “detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer.”...

There have been rumors about Matt having affairs with subordinates at NBC for years, but those were believed to be consensual. This incident in Rio was not.” Another source tells us that the decision to...
