Nov 30, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Matt Lauer responded today to his firing by NBC after a 20-year run on the “Today” show, apologizing for his words and actions and vowing that “repairing the damage” is now his full-time job.

“Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed,” Lauer wrote. “I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly.”

Meanwhile, new details continue to emerge about the sexual harassment scandal that brought down Lauer’s NBC career. NBC was reporting new allegations against Lauer this morning, with NBC correspondent Stephanie Gosk reporting during an appearance this morning on “Megyn Kelly Today” that there may now be “as many as eight” accusers making allegations against Lauer.

Below is a clip from this morning’s “Megyn Kelly Today,” posted by NBC, in which Gosk updates the Lauer situation …


  1. Another harasser embarrassed he was caught? What damage is Matt going to repair? His career? or the women that he has damaged?

  2. The clip of him grilling Bill O’Reilly (with all the skeletons in Lauer’s closet) is really sickening. I want EVERY politician, Republican AND Democrat who took money from the secret slush fund to pay off harassment accusers to be identified and summarily removed from Congress. They serve at our whim, and I think many peoples whims are fed up. We can have special elections to fill their seats. Franken would welcome an ethics hearing…because he KNOWS he will get by with a slap on the wrist. People (and especially the people of Minnesota) need to keep the pressure on. Conyers has been in Congress 50 years !! Time for his district in Michigan to elect a new Democrat for that seat. The irony here is that Lauer could probably just run for Congress as a Democrat from New York and get elected !!
