"Hypocrite" Matt Lauer Fired From NBC News Over Inappropriate Sexual Behavior

CNN fake news, NBC, MSM now consume each other in attempt to keep the spotlight off themselves as they are unmasked one by one  

By Terence Cullen and Leonard Greene

Today host Matt Lauer was a hypocrite of the highest order, reporting on the sexual harassment downfall of entertainment industry bigshots while using his power to abuse women for years, a portrait of the abruptly fired anchor revealed.

NBC poster boy for MSM frauds, liars, scumbags
Despite denials from NBC, staffers said Lauer’s bad behavior was no secret at the network, which axed him Wednesday.

Colleagues in the know grew increasingly uncomfortable putting together sexual harassment stories about people like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey given what they believed about Lauer, according to Variety.

That included an allegation that Lauer, 59, gave a colleague a sex toy as a present and attached an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her, the magazine said.

The report also said Lauer once summoned a different woman to his office, dropped his pants to show her his penis, then reprimanded the employee for not engaging in a sexual act.

Variety additionally wrote that Lauer, who is married and has three children, was known for making lewd comments verbally or over text messages.

Lauer was also reported to have had an office door he could lock with a button installed under his desk, giving him the privacy he needed to initiate inappropriate contact with women on the show’s staff.

Guthrie delivers disgusting Lauer obit: “I’m heartbroken for Matt,” Guthrie continued. “He is my dear, dear friend and my partner. And he is beloved by many, many people here.”

“He couldn’t sleep around town with celebrities or on the road with random people, because he’s Matt Lauer and he’s married,” a former producer told Variety.

“So he’d have to do it within his stable, where he exerted power, and he knew people wouldn’t ever complain.”

NBC, CNN, MSM fake news frauds and hacks now casualties in the war they started

Staffers said Lauer frequently used his editorial clout at “Today” to dismiss stories about cheating husbands.

But that got increasingly difficult to do as the sexual harassment snowball rolled through Hollywood — and the TV news industry, squashing the careers of such big names as “CBS This Morning” host Charlie Rose and Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly.

Lauer found himself in the judgment seat in September when interviewing O’Reilly, who was bounced from that network in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal.

Lauer, in a testy back and forth, asked O’Reilly if he’d ever sent lewd text messages to colleagues. O’Reilly said he had not.

“Think about those women and what they did,” Lauer said.

“They came forward and filed complaints against the biggest star at the network they worked at. Think about how intimidating that must have been. Doesn’t that tell you how strongly they felt about you?”

Variety said several women complained to NBC executives about Lauer’s behavior, but nothing was ever done.

But when a woman went to the network Monday night with a detailed complaint of inappropriate conduct from Lauer that began during a trip to the Sochi Olympics in 2014 and continued for several months, NBC wasted no time giving Lauer — and his $25 million salary — the heave-ho.

“As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment,” NBC News chief Andrew Lack wrote in a staff memo that gave no specifics about Lauer’s alleged behavior.

“While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he’s been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”

The firing appeared to be sudden, as Lauer’s stunned colleagues emotionally broke the news on air Wednesday morning.

The decision to fire Lauer also left the network scrambling for a replacement co-host for the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center on Wednesday night.

“As I’m sure you can understand, we are devastated,” said “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie, who choked up while breaking the news. “I’m heartbroken for Matt. He is my dear, dear friend and partner.”

Lack told staff Lauer understood why he was being fired and even said he was sorry, sources told CNN.

Reporters from The New York Times met with Lauer’s unnamed accuser Monday afternoon, the newspaper said, but noted she wasn’t ready to go public about her experience.

Ari Wilkenfeld, the woman’s lawyer, said they met with NBC officials for “several hours” Monday night.

“Our impression at this point is that NBC acted quickly, as all companies should, when confronted with credible allegations of sexual misconduct in the workplace,” Wilkenfeld told The Times on Wednesday.

“While I am encouraged by NBC’s response to date, I am in awe of the courage my client showed to be the first to raise a complaint and to do so without making any demands other than the company do the right thing.”

A Variety reporter also tweeted that the trade magazine had been working on a piece about misconduct by Lauer.

Lauer’s departure comes not long after the network fired Matt Zimmerman, who was in charge of booking for “Today” and other programs, for “inappropriate conduct,” Variety reported Wednesday.

Although women said they had complained to NBC about Lauer in the past, the network, “unequivocally” denied any prior knowledge of his alleged bad behavior.

The anchor, who was under contract through 2018, was one of NBC New’s highest-paid talents.

He started filling in at the show 25 years ago while still working with local affiliate WNYC.

Lauer became a full-time reporter with “Today” in 1994. He was tapped to co-host the long-running morning show 20 years ago when Bryant Gumbel left.

His tenure featured major interviews like Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2006, but it was also marred by the well-documented departure of co-host Ann Curry in 2012.

The two reportedly clashed, forcing Curry out at the network.

Rumors swirled in 2016 that Lauer and fellow “Today” host Natalie Morales had an affair — the end of which prompted her to move to “Access Hollywood” in Los Angeles. Lauer denied those suggestions to several media outlets.

Lauer’s wife, Annette, once accused him of “cruel and inhumane” behavior against her in a 2006 divorce filing that In Touch Weekly obtained three years ago. The divorce papers, which accused Lauer of “extreme anger and hostility,” were pulled within three weeks and the couple reconciled, the magazine reported.

The firing comes amid a wave of sexual harassment allegations, which began with scores of women accusing Weinstein, one of Hollywood’s biggest movie producers, of improper acts.

A week ago, Rose was fired from CBS and PBS after numerous women accused him of sexual misconduct over decades.

Lauer is the second high-profile figure to get the boot at his company after MSNBC political analyst Mark Halperin was let go in October. Several women accused the “Game Change” author of sexual harassment while he was ABC News’ political director.

NBC News is among the networks grappling with misconduct claims over the years.

Fox News nudged out ratings king O’Reilly earlier this year after reports he and the network quietly settled several sexual harassment lawsuits.

The conservative-leaning network also parted ways with founding CEO Roger Ailes in 2016, after he was accused of sexually harassing several women at Fox News, including Megyn Kelly.

President Trump was quick to weigh in on Lauer’s termination.

“Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace,” Trump tweeted. “But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!”

CNN Fires Senior Producer On Jake Tapper Show For Inappropriate Behavior

CNN fake news reaps the blowback for propaganda campaign as spotlight now turns on them  

By Elisabeth Weise


CNN on Wednesday fired a senior producer on Jake Tapper's Sunday show for inappropriate behavior.

The announcement came the same day that both Matt Lauer and Garrison Keillor lost their jobs over inappropriate behavior, as companies nationwide respond to a wave of reports of harassment, intimidation and sexual misconduct by high-profile men.

Teddy Davis was a senior producer on CNN's State of the Union show, which is hosted by Jake Tapper. According to a Washington Post reporter, three women had complained about his behavior.

In a statement, CNN said, "A comprehensive investigation was conducted as soon as this matter was brought to our attention. 

The behavior attributed to Mr. Davis does not align with the standards and values of CNN and Mr. Davis is no longer with the company."


Tapper's State of the Union show airs Sunday mornings and features interviews with top newsmakers on politics and policy. 

On Twitter, Tapper said that he supported the firing because "workplaces need to be safe."

"When CNN executives were told about these complaints, they reacted swiftly and appropriately, as they should," he wrote. 

It wasn't clear how long Tapper had known about the probe. In recent weeks, as sexual harassment allegations have led to the firings of several high-profile media personalities, women have said allegations against the accused were known by colleagues for years.

WAYNE MADSEN: NBC Pushes Unfounded Conspiracy Theory On Behalf Of CIA

NBC, CNN fake news exposed working for and with CIA mass-murderers  

By Wayne Madsen

Retired National Security Agency (NSA) chief technology officer William Binney is being branded as a "conspiracy theorist" by corporate media outlets, most notably, the Comcast-owned National Broadcasting Corporation, for co-authoring a controversial memo issued this past summer by a group of former intelligence officers – Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity.

The memo opined that the leak of Democratic National Committee e-mails during the 2016 presidential campaign were not the result of Russian state-sponsored hacking but the result of an inside job by a DNC staffer who loaded the purloined e-mails onto a thumb drive. That view is contrary to an assessment made in a 2017 intelligence assessment by 17 US intelligence agencies. That assessment claimed that Russian government-sponsored hackers broke into the email servers of the DNC and then provided the emails to WikiLeaks. 

However, the assessment was not the unanimous view of 17 US intelligence agencies, but merely four – the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was provided a chapeau of legitimacy by the Director of National Intelligence. Contrary to news reports, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the State Department Bureau of Intelligence and Research, and intelligence elements of the military services did not provide input to the assessment.

Binney was also accused by NBC "national security reporter" Ken Dilanian of pushing the "conspiracy theory" that the "NSA is collecting and storing nearly every US communication." Far from being a conspiracy theory, NSA's unconstitutional eavesdropping program, code-named STELLAR WIND and officially known as the “President’s Surveillance Program,” was proven in classified documents revealed by NSA whistleblower Ed Snowden and, earlier, by Justice Department prosecutor Thomas Tamm. 

NBC, CNN fake news continue attempts to sanitise confirmed liar, traitor James Clapper

A metadata-capturing program called PRISM ensnared the personal data of millions of Americans from AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and AOL.

What raised the hackles of Dilanian and other media shills for the intelligence community is that Binney was invited to a meeting with Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo on the "hallowed" 7th floor executive level at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Pompeo, a former Republican congressman from Kansas, had two CIA technology experts sit in on the meeting.

CNN fake news frauds deploy fired CIA psycho Philip Mudd almost daily to spew lies and ass-covering bullshit

Pompeo was reportedly urged to meet Binney by President Trump after the president saw one of Binney's interviews on Fox News and suggested that Pompeo meet with the retired NSA official. Dilanian wrote that although Binney "has been feted in Europe and elsewhere as a truth-telling whistleblower . . . American officials of all political persuasions say his allegations about the NSA are false." Dilanian offered up pure uninformed conjecture. 

Many current and former NSA, CIA, Justice Department, FBI employees, of all political persuasions, have confirmed that Binney's statements about illegal NSA eavesdropping are correct. And, they have been proven correct by deliberations of the super-secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC).

Dilanian is nothing more than a CIA embedded reporter at NBC News. While Dilanian was the Tribune Washington bureau national security reporter, he was accused of submitting his stories to the CIA in advance of publication. Tribune owns the Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times. In one email, Dilanian wrote to the CIA press officer: "I’m working on a story about congressional oversight of drone strikes that can present a good opportunity for you guys." 

In other cases, the CIA made significant re-edits of Dilanian's stories. Dilanian left Tribune in May 2014 for the Associated Press. While the Tribune Washington bureau chief later called Dilanian's e-mail exchanges with the CIA a violation of the newspaper chain's news policy, the AP had no problem with Dilanian's e-mail pen pals at the CIA. Dilanian later moved to NBC News.

NBC News, which has had a long relationship with the CIA since the agency's implementation of the news media infiltration project called MOCKINGBIRD in the early 1950s, apparently has had no problem with Dilanian's shilling for the CIA. The NBC attack on Binney appears to have been coordinated by Dilanian and his copy editors at the CIA who were not happy about Pompeo's meeting with the NSA whistleblower. Pompeo has been all over the map on accepting the US Intelligence Community's assessment on Russian hacking of the DNC computers, first accepting the assessment, then agreeing that it had no impact on the presidential election, and wavering back and forth to please Trump.

There is some credence to Binney's contention that weak DNC security led to either an internal compromise of sensitive e-mails or an external hack. Then-DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile did not create a Cybersecurity Advisory Board until after the e-mail hacking became public in August 2016. Instead of asking non-partisan technical experts to serve on the advisory board, Brazile packed it with Democratic Party hacks, ironic, since the title of her new book is "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House." 

Among the members of Brazile's advisory board were former members of the Obama administration, including Rand Beers, formerly with the Department of Homeland Security; Nicole Wong and Aneesh Copra of Albright Stonebridge Group; and Perkins Coie partner Michael Sussmann, a former federal prosecutor who was a lawyer for Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Albright Stonebridge is the lobbying firm of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

According to a retired technical officer with the US Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Technology Development Services (TDS), the computer systems maintained by TDS have had their security weakened by senators who want ease of access to the systems maintained by the DNC, the Republican National Committee, and the four campaign committees of the Senate and House – the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee (DSCC), the National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). The DCCC was reportedly penetrated by hackers while the DNC was also being hit. However, based on the revelations by the retired TDS official, Binney is correct in stating that the "inside hack" was done either by DNC and/or DCCC authorized users or by those who penetrated the systems from the US Senate or House of Representatives computers.

US Senate and House computer systems and network have been vulnerable to outside penetration ever since 2002, when Foxcom Wireless, a Jerusalem-based Israeli wireless start-up firm, received a contract to install a wireless system in the US Capitol and Senate and House office buildings. Foxcom was heading into bankruptcy before landing the lucrative contract for the US Capitol complex. Foxcom Wireless moved its headquarters to Vienna, Virginia and renamed itself MobileAccess Networks. In 2011, Mobile Access, Ltd. was bought by Corning, Inc. and merged into its Corning Cable Systems subsidiary.

It was discovered after the contract with the US House that Foxcom paid $280,000 to Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who was later convicted for bribery, mail fraud, and tax evasion, who helped secure the contract by lobbying members and staff of the powerful House Administration Committee, which was seen, at the time, as a corrupt congressional version of New York's infamous Tammany Hall. The powerful committee has been dubbed the "City Hall" of Capitol Hill.

There was not a single member, except for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who voiced objections to the Foxcom contract.The deal had the personal support of House Speaker Dennis Hastert, later convicted of lying to federal investigators about details of his paying hush-money in a pedophile scandal.

The congressman who originally introduced Foxcom to the House Administration Committee was House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer. Hoyer's sister, Bernice Manocherian, once served as the executive president of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the largest Jewish influence-peddling operation in the United States. House Administration Committee members who approved the deal with the Israelis were committee chairman Bob Ney and Representatives Candice Miller, Zoe Lofgren, and Juanita Millender-McDonald. Ney was later convicted of conspiracy and making false statements in the Abramoff influence-peddling scandal.

CNN fake news frauds and CIA dupes jeopardise the lives of legitimate journalists reporting in foreign countries

Foxcom ensured that its "contract" to "re-wire" Congress saw no oversight from TDS technicians or employees of either the Senate Sergeant-at-Arms or House Information Resources Office. The House Information Resources Office reports to the Chief Administrative Office of the House. Today, it is convenient for the media to ignore what Abramoff's actions have since allowed the Israeli mafia – the true culprits in the 2016 DNC/DCCC hacks – to have accomplished. Many of the Trump Organization's global partners are members of this particular mafia and its various branches.

NBC hacks like Dilanian and the perpetual happy-faced bobblehead Katie Tur, as well as their dubious colleagues at CNN, Wolf Blitzer – the former public affairs officer for AIPAC – and Jake Tapper, are not able to see prior to 2016 to discover that the security holes within the telecommunications networks of Congress – with access to the DNC and RNC – were placed by Israeli intelligence agents in the early and mid-2000s. 

CNN fake news drunken coward Chris Cuomo in paroxysms of terror over public attacks on CNN, MSM scum

Brazile's expert cyber-security committee could never turn their attention toward the Israelis, given the large amounts of money Haim Saban and Harvey Weinstein lavished on the Democratic Party. Russia may be getting the blame for HackGate, but Israeli mobsters, hailing originally from places as diverse as Lithuania, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine to Kyrgyzstan, Azerbaijan, and Moldova, deserve all the credit.
