NBC announces ‘Today’ show co-host Matt Lauer fired due to inappropriate sexual behavior at work

“Today” show co-host Matt Lauer has been fired from NBC due to inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.

Lauer’s co-anchor Savannah Guthrie was joined by Hoda Kotb to announce the news Wednesday morning on “Today.”

“This is a sad morning here at ‘Today’ and at NBC News,” Guthrie said before reading a note from NBC News chairman Andy Lack.

    What would constitute appropriate sexual behavior in the workplace?
    [Sex workers excepted of course]

    • Well walking around naked in front of co-workers is out.

      I believe the rock solid uncontraversial demarcation line is an “Unwanted Sexual Advance”. Men innately know the differentiation between ‘wanted’ and ‘unwanted’ in the mind of every female they deal with. Thus a single once-only question, ”Would you be interested in going on a date?” is obviously sexual harassment if she is unwilling but OK if she is willing. Men must know before asking even once.

    It’s hilarious listening to NewsTalk 1010 this morning. Resident morning man John (I’m still in the closet) Moore spent hour 1 gushing about Michelle Obama’s speech in Toronto yesterday – which morphed into hour 2 about wonderful Turdeau’s apology to Gays which now morphed into an hour 3 “OMG Matt Lauer got fired”….

      I had to switch after listening to his obama shill. Am640 wasn’t much better… talking about the rise of antisemitism with kinsella. On talking about the white strawman KKK, Nazis, sons of Odin that contribute to it…

      No check out the increase in a certain segment of the population and what the antisemitism increase… check out France.

      Then they went on to attack scheer…

      No mention of our idiot PM blaming islamophobia on why they are doing shit with returning Isis fighters.

      World has gone crazy left.

        I really miss Sun TV.

      • Nah they’re just stuck in the past, history has left them behind and they create elaborate fantasies to sustain their false narrative.

      John Moore is a douche. He is the worst host on 1010

    I’ve got to say that while a great deal of this is accurate, I’d bet a great deal of it is the kind of public denunciations you see in the Arab world over ‘Zionist collaborators’ who more often than not are guilty of nothing more than having a nicer car. We’re looking at, in part, a pushback of people exercising their personal petty revenge.

    This is all a conspiracy created by Donald Trump and Steve Bannon.

    They must be getting women who are Trump supporters to make these scurrilous claims against these progressive icons!

    Matt Lauer was fired for asking Hillary Clinton tough questions. The sex stuff is just the public excuse.

    Between rapist host Matt Lauer and the Megyn Kelly hiring disaster the “Today Show” brand is now dead…
