Was it NBC that broke the Billy Bush "Pussy Tapes"?

I love it when a meme does a boomerang and clips dozens of leftards from thier perches!! Moar popcorn, please!

Thw WaPo broke the Pussy Tape story after someone from The Today Show leaked them.

Somebody needs to find footage of Matt Lauer dissing Trump over the "Pussy Tapes".

Time to rub salt in the wounds.

Did they reveal if he was harassing a chick or some dude? I'm taking 'dude' in the office pool...

Yes it is, Buckeye.

Matt Lauer?

LOL

I just watched the ABC morning show clip of their 'take' on Matt Lauer. Stepanapolus was about to sign off to a commercial and Robin said, "Can I say something," and Step nodded. She rambled for a moment, AND THEN ENDED WITH a reference to 'where is this going to go, because people in Wall Street, people in politics haven't been touched, and THEN SHE SAID PRESIDENT TRUMP'S name."

I thought, yes, you bitch, suck it for awhile -- don't you know the poisonous media and left are scrambling and dying to take down the president more than ever! Oh, I despise them and her, she couldn't resist. I can't even imagine what the poison is like at a place like MSNBC or CNN.

It is 10min long but well worth it for the sanctimonious comment from Lauer at the end.

So now tha Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!

The question is not why Matt Lauer was fired.

What was the appeal?

Pardon me, I forgot dumb as a stump.

From the linked Page Six article...the evidence was so compelling (from Lauer's accuser) that he was fired immediately. Hmmm,blue dress evidence? Inquiring minds!

If there ever was a New York "icon" it would have to be Trump.

I see his fingerprints on a lot of these revelations. A number of them originate or take place in New York. You don't think Trump doesn't have his spies and whisperers? Probably not much that happens in Manhattan that doesn't come back to The Donald.

And he has the patience of an oyster. Look how long he planned his political ascendency after the roasting he took from Zippy. Funny, we haven't heard much from Roger Stone lately and his most likely the trigger man for the Trump revenge machine.

Here is a quote from yesterday by NeverTrumper Lite VDH


Voters may say that they find Trump puerile and repellent while in private enjoying that he is as petty as they are and hits back at those who long ago needed a smack. That disconnect could explain why polls are now less relevant and why those who voted for Trump can fudge and mislead about their politics more than Trump himself does. Trump’s take-no-prisoners style may serve some people’s vicarious need to push back against the progressive trajectory of the country, in a way that voting for a Cruz or a Rubio in the primary did not.

I guess I'm a petty deplorable for applauding Trump's jab at the intern killer.

I enjoy how VDH invokes the two ineligible candidates as the benchmark for the proper battle against the progressive trajectory as opposed to what "some people's vicarious needs" have wrought.

VDH is the king of the backhanded compliment.

Captain Hate,

A lot of people thought I was nuts when I came out as an early supporter of DJT.

I was RIGHT!

However, will now keep my smug attitude in check. Couldn't resist one comment, though.

JimNorCal

In my email today. I don't twitter so I can't independently confirm the slap at Andy Lack. Seems like a hint of things to come though!

President Trump reacted to the news on Twitter.

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

We'll repost it every day, just in case, Miss Marple!!

JimNorCal,

Scarborough works for the same parent company, both owned by Comcast. I would be very happy to find out the owners of Comcast are great friends of Jerry Falwell Jr. Strangers things have happened.

So this is yet another case that Alred didn't know anything about, while she has throwing Cosby and ailes to the wolves, shocker. Maybe she knew 'not to get into an elevator with him'

Yes who stuck a shiv in an honorable woman, and you're lucky she didn't gut you like a moose.

Somebody in the Horde pointed out that the reason McCain has had a boot on different legs might be because he's having bone marrow samples taken frequently from his ankles because of the aggressive nature of the cancer he has.

Here lies Panamanian Citizen John McCain. Ex post facto barely made him a US citizen. He once claimed that Obama would make a fine President, shortly before suspending his campaign.

JimNorCal

TK, all the VDH YouTubes I've read and the articles (not that many, though) showed VDH as a solid Trump supporter. Including taking a lot of flak from colleagues on the Stanford campus. You consider him a (perhaps mild) Trump hater?

Don Surber opines that although Trump may be a master of 8 dimensional chess, he doesn't NEED to be when dealing with the media. This is because "This isn't complicated because he is up against parrots, not thinkers."
http://donsurber.blogspot.com/2017/11/8th-dimensional-chess-trump-beats-them.html#more

Case in point: media anti-Trumper Shapiro says Trump should be tweeting about more serious topics. Turns out DJT did, it's just that Shapiro didn't read, or selectively viewed the tweets and overlooked ones on the exact topics he chose to highlight.

So all of these shows were like the real world Manhattan, it was that show whose only saving grace was the future Mrs Sean Duffy that imported the reality virus into the bloodstreAm.

YouTubes I've "viewed"

VDH is still playing both ends of the Nevertrumpet, Jim.

He is way better than he used to be but he still has a knack for sneaking in a dig or two against this "new group" of voters.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

I believe bone marrow biopsies are usually taken from the hip and they are not ordinarily something one does every week or so.

One of the things about the Olympics is that the athlete's village is a rabbit warren. Kids hooking up 24/7, usually as soon as they finish competition. They give away tens of thousands of condoms, some of which get used.

It may have something to do with the performance enhancing drugs they use, but it's been that way for a long time.

We do know now that the team doctor for USA Gymnastics was a child molester.

Hormones running high, close proximity, an otherworldly environment. It at least gives some context.

Whether Lauer is a repeat offender or this was a one off indiscretion/assault we don't know.But the setting was certainly there.

I wonder when and how the bloodbath will end? I truly doubt there will be a thoughtful and reasoned response. It's more like Chinese apparatchiks shooting criminals in front of crowds of thousands.

Miss Marple

I see that both Variety and the NYT were working on stories about Lauer, so NBC fired him to get ahead of the story. Multiple victims.

This of course opens NBC up to other questions, like who all knew about this, were complaints ignored, etc.

I see more firings and resignations coming down the road.

Captain Hate

Tammy Bruce was talking yesterday about how the Cokie Roberts comment shouldn't be allowed to just quietly fade away. Conyers conduct was something well known to these self appointed cornerstones of the country and they willfully kept a lid on it for his benefit. Frankly I think they all deserve to be fired for demonstrably not doing their jobs.

Captain Hate

When do the Handmaid's Tale idiots start making spectacles out of themselves in front of 30 Rock?

She hated him because of Ann Curry getting shafted.

My recollection is that Ann Curry is a nasty piece of work, not even trying to conceal her disdain of Republicans and conservatives. Of course the same is true of Lauer. They can all go in James D's fire.

JimNorCal

Interesting. Foreign gov'ts flouting US law. In Chicago!


http://wgntv.com/2017/11/28/chicago-bakery-loses-800-workers-after-immigration-raid/

CHICAGO — A Chicago bakery lost 800 workers to an immigration raid earlier this year.

Bloomberg reports that the Cloverhill Bakery on the Northwest Side, lost more than a third of its employees who didn’t have sufficient documentation.

The Swiss-based company makes hamburger buns for McDonald’s and other chains.

JimNorCal

Foreign "company".
Sheesh. Moar coffee....

henry

Jim, aka Rahm loses 800 (times 4) votes.

Appalled

Captain:

A couple of weeks ago, Cokie was chattering away about the sexual harassment carnage in Hollywood, and the NPR host asked her about open secrets in Washington. She paused a couple of beats, and then offered up Strom Thurmond as someone people "knew not to get in an elevator with". (She used that phrasing then, too.)

I expect there some other folks Cokie knows about, but she is not going to be the one that outs anybody.

henry

Also, those "work visas" (aka not sufficient documentation) probably sourced through Rep. Guiterrez and the raid may show he got tipped off (hence his sudden retirement yesterday).

The question is not why Matt Lauer was fired.
It's why he was hired in the first place.

You could ask that about practically every news anchor, not to mention late night host.

They always choose the committed leftist over the more competent. Dan Rather was a horrible anchor, stiff as a board, but CBS chose him over Roger Mudd, probably because Mudd had the audacity to humiliate the Lion of the Senate.

And passing over the apolitical and funny Craig Ferguson for the despicable and completely un-funny Colbert was another case.

Captain Hate

Yes, to hell with Ann Curry too.

I agree with matt that this may not end well even though I'm pleased with some well deserving gasbags punctured.

Fox has learned that Dem IL Rep Luis Gutierrez will test the waters to potentially run for President in 2020. Gutierrez announced his retirement from Congress earlier in the wk. There were indications he would run for another office.

Business is about maximizing return on investment perhaps with some civic responsibility along the way.

Instead we have been subject to political tests and old school ties in many cases. Groupthink has done a lot of damage in the country.

Upsetting half of one's potential customer base is bad business any way you look at it and now we have the layer upon layer of sleaze and hypocrisy on top of it.

We have had Industrial Revolutions and tech Revolutions. Interesting that we're having a Douchebag Revolution, or is that what it really is? I see a lot of Pharisees out there right now, especially people like Cokie Roberts.
