As reported at CNN, Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News due to a complaint flied by an employee into “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.” According to Page 6, Lauer allegedly sexually assaulted a female NBC staffer during the Rio Olympics. The NBC staffer, who wishes to remain anonymous, complained to NBC bosses yesterday, prompting them to move fast and fire him. As per NBC News, this may not be an isolated incident. Savannah Guthrie read a statement from NBC News chairman Andy Lack, stating that the company has received a detailed complaint from a colleague Monday night “about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace” by Lauer.
Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News on Wednesday after an employee filed a complaint about “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace,” the network announced.
Savannah Guthrie made the announcement at the top of the “Today” show. Lauer has been the cornerstone of the program, one of the most profitable franchises on television, for two decades.
NBC News chairman Andrew Lack said in a memo to staff that it was the first complaint lodged against Lauer in his career at the network. But he said “we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”
Lauer was informed of the network’s decision late Tuesday night, before he went to bed, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Reporters for The New York Times and Variety had been investigating Lauer for several weeks, according to sources who had been contacted by the Times.
Guthrie said she was informed just moments before going on the air.
“This is a sad morning at ‘Today’ and NBC News,” she said. “As I’m sure you can understand, we are devastated. I’m heartbroken for Matt.”
Guthrie also said she was heartbroken for the woman who accused Lauer of misconduct, noting “it’s long overdue” that women feel comfortable coming forward against abusive men.
Hoda Kotb, on the set with Guthrie, said she has known Lauer for years and “loved him as a friend and a colleague.”
“It’s hard to reconcile the man who walks in every day” with the person who was identified in the complaint, she said.
Lauer, 59, was named a co-anchor of “Today” in January 1997 after three years as the newsreader.
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST …
Matt Zimmerman is out at NBC News. Zimmerman was fired amid allegations of inappropriate conduct and sexual harassment by two women at the news division. Matt Zimmerman was the senior VP of booking, news and entertainment and worked with NBC since at least 2004 and primarily handled bookings on “Today” and other NBC News programs. One has to wonder if there will be anyone left in the news rooms after the purge.
Matt Zimmerman, a veteran of NBC News, has been fired amid allegations of inappropriate conduct with two women at the news division.
“We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBCU, which violated company policy. As a result, he has been dismissed,” an NBC News spokesperson said Tuesday in a statement.
Sources say the allegations were recently brought to the attention of human resources. At issue were multiple relationships with women who were junior to Zimmerman and, in at least one case, a direct report, said one source. NBC News policy stipulates that such relationships must be disclosed to human resources. Zimmerman, who was a senior VP at NBC News, is a veteran of The Today Show and in 2014 was elevated to lead a streamlined NBC News booking department.
Atlanta Gym Qwner Discriminated Against Police Officers & Active Members of the Miliatry … “No F*cking Cops” Sign (VIDEO)
ITS TOO BAD THE HYPOCRITICAL LEFT DOESN’T ALLOW RIGHT LEANING BUSINESSES THEY DON’T AGREE WITH TO DO THE SAME WHEN THEY RUN THEIR BUSINESS … INSTEAD THEY TRY AND SHUT THEM DOWN.
As reported at 11 Alive, an Atlanta gym owner has decided to take a rather interesting PR approach to his business. Normally when one opens a business they try to spread their product to a large audience; however, not when you are a hating liberal. This business has a no police and military rule. Huh? The owner of the AV Barbell Club stated, “We’ve had an explicitly stated ‘No Cop’ policy since we opened, and we also don’t open membership to active members of the military.” Well, he has the right to do this. Then again, we have the rights too and to criticize his foolish conduct. As The Daily Caller opines, good luck with those Yelp reviews and they rest you will receive on social media. Now if only the Left and individuals like Mr. Chambers would take the same approach when it came to businesses they didn’t agree with. Like when they try to close them down because they don’t like them. As for Jim Chambers, owner of the EAV Barbell Club on Flat Shoals Avenue in the city’s East Atlanta Village neighborhood, good luck if you ever need help from law enforcement. Karma has a real big way of coming back to bite you.
This is the sign the gym owner put up. He has since taken it down. But why, you are free to express what you really feel.
A shocking and vulgar sign about police officers has been posted in front of a local business in Atlanta. The sign could be seen from the street with the curse word blurred out, but the message is clear: It says no cops allowed.
An 11Alive News viewer emailed us the photo of the sign. He says he’s a military veteran and was offended when he saw it outside the East Atlanta Village gym.
11Alive’s Faith Abubey talked to the gym’s owner, who is not making any apologies for putting up the sign.
“It was really just that the vulgarity in that sign, and that seems to bring it out for people,” said Jim Chambers, owner of the EAV Barbell Club on Flat Shoals Avenue in the city’s East Atlanta Village neighborhood.
Unbelievable, the idiot owner of this gym believes that his ban on police and military is a political statement. Hmm, freedom of speech is a double edge sword. Good luck with the backlash you receive from this and despite what the police might have said about help, good luck to them showing up if you need their assistance. The fool owner went on to say, “we don’t want a place where we can make them (police) stronger so that they can hurt people more efficiently”. What a sick and disturbed individual. It really is true, liberalism is a mental disease.
THAT WAS QUICK, BUT THERE WAS NO OTHER CHOICE … HOWEVER, MOOCH MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
After just 10 days as Communications director, President Donald Trump has removed Anthony Scaramucci from the position. But really was there any other choice after Scaramucci went on his rant? His firing was appropriate to his misguided rant to he media. That being said, one has to say that maybe, just maybe Scaramucci accomplished exactly what he was put there to do. It included the the exits of press secretary Sean Spicer and former chief of staff Reince Priebus. The fact that the ultimate insider and establishment politician Reince Priebus is gone, is a good thing. However, the move is seen as a signal by Trump to give a “clean slate” to his new chief of staff, Gen. John Kelly. Now let’s see if the leeks continue with Priebus gone. Also gone, is a huge distraction that the MSM cannot report on while glossing over actual news events.
President Donald Trump has removed Anthony Scaramucci as communications director, a little more than a week after the former financier was named to the post, the White House said on Monday.
The change came at the request of new chief of staff John Kelly, who started Monday, two White House officials said. It was not clear whether Scaramucci would take on a new role after leaving the communications job, nor was it immediately apparent who would take over the position.
“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.”
Sanders told reporters Monday afternoon that Scaramucci has no role in the administration “at this time,” but she refused to elaborate on the circumstances surrounding his departure.
IF YOU AS AN EMPLOYEE ALLOW A COMPANY TO CHIP YOU, MAYBE YOU ARE A FOOL …
Three Square Market, a Wisconsin company is about to become the first one in the United States to offer microchip implants to its employees. What? Who on earth would allow themselves to be chipped? Are you so lazy that you can’t use an ID card to enter your business or use a credit/debit card to pay for things that you would have yourselves be chipped? As reported at The Daily Caller, the microchips utilize Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, which can identify nearby electronically stored information through electromagnetic fields, much like contactless credit cards and mobile payment systems To the employees of Three Square Market, ask yourself why your company would provide this service to you for free. If you actually think that there is no GPS type device in this chip, I have a bridge to sell you.
Microchip implant today, what’s tomorrow? Welcome to the Matrix.
A Wisconsin company is about to become the first in the U.S. to offer microchip implants to its employees.
Yes, you read that right. Microchip implants.
“It’s the next thing that’s inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it,” Three Square Market Chief Executive Officer Todd Westby said.
The company designs software for break room markets that are commonly found in office complexes.
Just as people are able to purchase items at the market using phones, Westby wants to do the same thing using a microchip implanted inside a person’s hand.
Each chip costs $300, and the company is picking up the tab. They’re implanted between a person’s thumb and forefinger. Westby added the data is both encrypted and secure.
“There’s no GPS tracking at all,” he said.
Sorry, I think this is a terrible idea. So credit cards have never been hacked, eh?
