NBC’s Matt Lauer probe suggests NBC never saw “The Today Show”

NBC executives conducted an internal probe and exonerated themselves of complicity in any of Matt Lauer’s sexual harassment charges. Maybe they should have tuned in to “The Today Show.”

After a long internal probe, NBC executives have exonerated themselves of complicity in Matt Lauer’s alleged sexual predation while in their employ.

According to Deadline Hollywood, NBC says it found no evidence indicating “that any NBC News or Today Show leadership, News HR or others in positions of authority in the News Division received any complaints about [Matt] Lauer’s workplace behavior prior to November 27, 2017.” Many of Lauer’s peculiarities, including his remote-locking sex-room, apparently went unnoticed by NBC brass.

According to a study released about the probe, the executives had heard rumors, but assumed Lauer was merely having affairs on his own time, away from the workplace. Of course, those executives may have been made more aware of Lauer’s creep status had they watched more of The Today Show, where the host behaved like a dirtbag at least six times.
