Matt Lauer’s Behavior at NBC Was Reportedly an Open Secret

What happened?

Variety published a disturbing report Thursday about the allegations against longtime news anchor Matt Lauer, who was abruptly fired on Wednesday. His NBC office reportedly had a button under the desk that could lock his door from the inside without Lauer getting up – a feature he allegedly used to trap co-workers.

Did Variety have more details?

Yep, a lot of them. Women have come forward to describe how Lauer exposed himself to them, continually made lewd comments about their sex lives and made the office a terrible place to work. He once gave a sex toy to a co-worker as a gift along with an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her.

Variety reported:

He once made a suggestive reference to a colleague’s performance in bed and compared it to how she was able to complete her job, according to witnesses to the exchange. For Lauer, work and sex were intertwined.

Glenn’s take:

“Like Weinstein in Hollywood, this wasn’t a secret at NBC,” Glenn noted. He wondered how many more abusers will (rightfully) be exposed. “It’s time we hold accountable those who have engaged in this kind of behavior,” he said.

GLENN: The Matt Lauer fallout continues. In a statement released just a couple hours ago Lauer said quote:

“There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC. 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.”

Details are beginning to emerge on Lauer’s behavior. A Variety story published yesterday disclosed years of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. There were quote “dozens” of people that came forward to corroborate Lauer’s actions. Similar to how all of Hollywood knew about and was complicit in Weinstein's rain of terror, can we not say the same thing about the brass at NBC? NBC News chairman Andy Lack stated that Monday night was the first time they had ever heard about Lauer’s behavior. Are we seriously supposed to buy that?

According to Variety, Matt Lauer had multiple consensual relationships with women he held power over, sent a sex toy to a female colleague, exposed himself to employees, and reprimanded a subordinate for not engaging in a sexual act with him IN HIS OFFICE. Like Weinstein in Hollywood, this wasn’t a secret at NBC. It sounds like nearly all of 30 Rockefeller Plaza had heard this was going on.

There’s obviously an epidemic of perverts in our society, but it’s time we hold accountable those that have enabled this type of behavior with their silence. Evil triumphs when good people say and do nothing. If you’re an executive or manager that knew all this was going and turned a blind eye, you carry guilt right alongside Lauer.

Dangerous Tech Oligarchs Who Answer to No One | Glenn Greenwald | Ep 104

Have you noticed how the people who call everyone a conspiracy theorist are the biggest conspiracy theorists of all? Like the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory that the Washington elite used to discredit Trump and force him out of Washington, D.C. Or how the CIA is the real power center of American politics. Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist and author of the new book, "Securing Democracy: My Fight for Press Freedom and Justice in Bolsonaro's Brazil," is an outsider in the media because he calls out these abuses of power. For one, he agrees that the Deep State is real.

Greenwald is a rare breed these days: He does actual journalism. He explains things very well, like his description of Trump's appeal and Obama's mystique. He and Glenn cover so many topics: Woke corporations, Julian Assange, the #MeToo movement, Putin, Snowden, The Constitution, Big Tech censorship. Why does the Left call Greenwald right-wing but the Right calls him left-wing? For a journalist, that used to be a badge of honor. But as Greenwald points out, the journalism industry has become a Woke priesthood. So, if you want to learn about actual journalism, listen to this episode. It's totally worth getting through a couple of technical difficulties.

Wasn't life supposed to go back to normal once the vaccines were widely distributed? The lack of information coming from the government elites should be a sign that maybe, just maybe — all their experts are out of ways to spin this?

Critical Race TYRANNY: The Great Reset of Education

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.
