Lauer Outage

“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.” So said NBC News president Andy Lack as he announced the firing of Matt Lauer over a sexual misconduct allegation. (Will we have enough journalists still in their jobs to report on sexual harassers in other industries?)

+ Variety is reporting many incidents described by Lauer’s accusers.

+ “Garrison Keillor, the former host of A Prairie Home Companion, said Wednesday he has been fired by Minnesota Public Radio over allegations of what the network called improper behavior.”

+ USA Today: New Conyers accuser: He stripped in D.C. hotel room.

+ Leigh Corfman, one of Roy Moore’s several accusers, has had enough of him calling her a liar: “But when you personally denounced me last night and called me slanderous names, I decided that I am done being silent. What you did to me when I was 14-years old should be revolting to every person of good morals. But now you are attacking my honesty and integrity. Where does your immorality end?”
