    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,...

    In the final frantic days before the New Yorker and New York Times exposed his sexual misconduct, Harvey Weinstein allegedly spent his time searching for and deleting sensitive documents, scouring ex-employees’ online communications and hunting for the person who leaked incriminating information to the press. ...Weinstein was determined to find out who was providing reporters with a road map to his personal life, angrily confiding in her [Nicole Quenqua], she said, even as he fished for information: “Somebody is giving The New York Times everything. They’re giving them my drivers’ phone numbers. My entire address book. . . . They’re...

    A week after NBC fired Matt Lauer, the ousted anchor is still reeling. “He is weak and broken and ashamed by his own admission,” one of Lauer’s former Today show colleagues tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “He is my friend,” the colleague adds. “He is human, and he is flawed. But is he going to use his power to be a predator on women? Until I see solid evidence of that, I just can’t believe it. We don’t know the details.” Lauer, 59, was terminated after the network received a “detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior,”...
  • Matt Lauer could potentially lose New Zealand farm

    WELLINGTON — New Zealand’s overseas investment regulator said Thursday it was discussing allegations made against former US “Today” show host Matt Lauer with his representative as part of a review of his purchase of a large South Island farm. NBC News fired Lauer on Wednesday after a female colleague accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior, the network said, making him the latest rich and powerful man to be felled by such accusations. New Zealand’s Overseas Investment Office cited the requirement that foreign investors be “of good character” as it confirmed it was seeking further information on Lauer. “The Overseas Investment...

    Top NBC News execs received complaints about Matt Lauer’s alleged sexual misconduct long before he was fired for harassment — but chose to protect him, current and former staffers told The Post on Thursday. “Everybody at NBC knew about Matt Lauer’s sexually inappropriate behavior — and knew not to talk about it,” a current “Today” show staffer said. “Women did complain about his behavior, and there were a lot of closed-door meetings before it was all brushed under the carpet.” Another source said, “Some women did report it and were scared at the repercussions it would have on their careers....

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented Thursday night on longtime NBC host Matt Lauer's firing, remarking that she believes in the concept of karma a little more "every day," Philly Voice reports. Clinton was speaking in Philadelphia as part of her national book tour promoting her memoir, "What Happened," which looks at her unsuccessful 2016 presidential campaign. “Every day I believe more in karma,” Clinton said when asked about Lauer's firing, before lumping him in with several other “men who shaped the narrative” who have been fired over similar allegations of sexual misconduct. “The only way we will get...

    Matt Lauer’s abrupt firing from NBC News after accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior has left the network with a huge hole to fill. NBC made Lauer the face of morning television. He had been co-anchor of Today for 20 years and was being paid an annual salary in the $20 million range, according to The Wall Street Journal. He was fired on Wednesday after a staffer filed a complaint alleging he engaged in misconduct during NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. NBC News Chairman Andy Lack wrote a memo to the staff, saying the allegations made...

    The chickens of the era of moral relativism are coming home to roost in the scandals that have rocked the studios of Hollywood, the green rooms of media moguls, and the cloak rooms of Congress. Are the cases of Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein. John Conyers, Charlie Rose et al any surprise in an era where traditional marriage and fidelity to one spouse of the opposite sex have been under assault and routinely mocked? We live in any age of transgendered restrooms, where transgendered athletes like Caitlyn Jenner are given courage awards by sports channels like ESPN. Harder work is done...

    Megyn Kelly appears willing to give recently ousted "Today" host Matt Lauer a platform to discuss his sexual misconduct scandal during her hour of the NBC morning show. Kelly — who hosts the 9 a.m. hour of the program with "Megyn Kelly Today" — made it clear any of the women accusing Lauer of inappropriate behavior are welcome to tell their stories on her show. She then extended that invitation to the people who are being accused of sexual impropriety as well, without specifically naming Lauer. "As hard as it is to report on one of our own colleagues, we...

    Duck everybody, they’ll keep dumping their sleaze daily on the World Wide Web until they bring down the president “YO!” to Hillary Rodham Clinton and her shrill mainstream media shills: We get it! Sexual harassment—systemically ignored for decades—has become an overnight media sensation ignited by the insatiable venom of an embittered Hillary Clinton and her loyalists. In their own words: “The abrupt firing of NBC “Today” co-host Matt Lauer announced Wednesday prompted cheers among Hillary Clinton’s loyalists who feel that he was extraordinarily mean to her — and soft on President Trump — during the 2016 presidential campaign.” (Washington Examiner,...

    "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.

    So the top broadcast news journalist who raked the former top cable news journalist over sexual harassment has now been fired for sexual harassment. You can’t make this stuff up. Matt Lauer’s canned. As I write these words there is only a report from Variety that describes his alleged indiscretions, but one thing is for certain: NBC would not have fired their top star were this not an impeachable offense. They’re dropping like bowling pins all over Hollywood, in sports, in politics and in journalism. Every day someone new is guilty of sexual harassment. While the deed is being reported,...
