Was it a dead bolt or something that locked the door knob? I read the accounts as being something that simply locked the door knob to prevent people from coming into his office.
From the Variety article:
Lauer, who was paranoid about being followed by tabloid reporters, grew more emboldened at 30 Rockefeller Center as his profile rose following Katie Courics 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.
If you've got a source that says it prevented passage through the door from either direction and thus, locking the women in and keeping them captive, please share it.
I know everyone is talking about this door lock button, but Matt Lauer isn't the only per to have this button at NBC, it's something other execs have, including women NBC executives past/present. Not condoning it, but important to note that others have it/had it, including women.
I love when he says to her....*Stop interrupting me.*
Mika is spectacularly deluded if she thinks Joe will actually marry and stay faithful to her. Joe likes fresh young intern meat—not some dumb@ss menopausal matron like Mika.
“locking the women in and keeping them captive, please share it.”
Is that technically kidnapping?
From the mouths of NBC employees who are banging one another.
Any restraint on another person wanting to leave is considered kidnapping, even if it's just grabbing them by the wrist.
First they dangle a severance package that pays you to shut up. Then they destroy all physical evidence and create some of their own implicating you — just to make sure that you stay bought.
