  • Matt Lauer Had Sexual Relationship With ‘Well-Respected’ NBC Star: Report

    Lucas Jackson/ReutersMatt Lauer allegedly had a sexual relationship with a “well-respected” NBC personality, according to an exclusive report by Page Six. The unnamed woman told the publication that the relationship represented a “clear imbalance of power” and that she was made to sign a nondisclosure agreement, or NDA, when she left the network. One corroborative source told the New York Post that “Matt had influence over everyone’s career-one word and your career would be sunk,” the unnamed person, who apparently confirmed the relationship, said. “I know there was a clear imbalance of power in this woman’s relationship with Matt.” It is unclear if the woman in the Page Six article is the same one that Ronan Farrow describes in his new book Catch and Kill, where he wrote about how Lauer repeatedly harassed a fellow on-air star who was also made to sign an NDA agreement. In Farrow’s book, the co-star, who is also unnamed, says that a separate NBC executive also propositioned her and made lewd comments about her when she was on-air. “I was like meat on a hook,” the woman told Farrow. “I would walk into work with a knot in my stomach. I would come home and cry.” NBC News Chief Unleashes on Ronan Farrow in New Staff MemoThe woman says that when she turned Lauer and the other man down, she was punished. “My career took a sharp nosedive,” she said. The woman described in the Page Six report says she did not go to NBC human-resources officials with her complaint, but that she did tell co-workers who have corroborated her complaint.Lauer has stringently denied claims of coerced sexual relationships, saying instead that all of his encounters were consensual. NBC responded harshly to Farrow’s book, insisting that it did not cover up for Lauer. NBC News President Noah Oppenheim-himself under pressure over essays he wrote while a student at Harvard, wrote a staff memo Monday. “Farrow’s effort to defame NBC News is clearly motivated not by a pursuit of truth, but an axe to grind,” he wrote. “It is built on a series of distortions, confused timelines, and outright inaccuracies.” “I feel absolutely terrible that these three employees were subjected to Matt Lauer’s horrific behavior, but the facts do not support Farrow’s allegation of a ‘cover-up,’ and he offers no further evidence,” Oppenheim went on to say. “There is no way we have found that NBC's current leadership could have been aware of his misdeeds in the past.” The network has not said whether it will seek legal action against Farrow’s allegations.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

  • Fox’s Neil Cavuto Challenges Trump-Boosting Colleague: ‘Do You Fault the President for Anything?’

    Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Wednesday confronted one of the network’s most loyal Trump defenders, dismantling Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett’s latest pro-Trump book that asserts the president is the victim of an ongoing “witch hunt” by the so-called Deep State and Democrats.As Jarrett promoted his new book on Cavuto’s show, the pro-Trump pundit immediately remarked that his host’s copy of the book was marked with a “lot of yellow Post-It notes.” Cavuto, meanwhile, went on to note that Jarrett focuses much of his book’s attention on blaming the media for the purported witch hunt against Trump, of which Jarrett claims the Ukraine scandal is part of. After the Fox analyst claimed the media was “lazy,” suffer from a “liberal bias,” and “shoot from the hip,” Cavuto wondered aloud if Jarrett could say anything negative about the president’s behavior and tendency to lie and misspeak.“But do you say that the president does not sometimes confuse people?” Cavuto asked. “He says something and then says something else?”Jarrett tried to deflect, complaining about reporters accepting “intelligence leaks,” prompting Cavuto to press again.“I get that, and you well-researched that and documented with great detail, and it is impressive,” the Fox anchor noted. “But do you fault the president for anything?”Pausing for a moment, Jarrett responded that the one thing he can fault Trump for was hiring Jeff Sessions as his attorney general, something he added Trump himself has said he was wrong to do.Cavuto, who is one of the rare Trump-skeptic voices on Fox, further confronted his colleague on Trump’s lies and flip-flops on payments he made to women he had alleged affairs with, causing Jarrett to shrug that off. The host then moved on to Trump attempting to get a foreign leader to dig up dirt on a political opponent.“With the Ukraine situation, when you look at that-now you are the lawyer, I don’t know what is considered a high crime or misdemeanor, might not fit the case here-is it proper for a sitting president of the United States to talk to a foreign leader about involving himself in a campaign?” Cavuto asked.The pro-Trump Fox personality, however, took the opportunity to make an argument he’s made in the past-that it would actually be a crime if the president did not ask Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family. (There is no evidence Biden or his son did anything illegal or wrong in Ukraine.)After a bit more back and forth, Cavuto eventually tried to get Jarrett to admit at least one thing: Doesn’t it “look bad” that Trump pressed Ukraine to investigate Biden?“It looks bad to Democrats,” Jarrett said. “It does not look bad to me.”This gentle but telling confrontation comes on the heels of a network civil war between the Fox news division and opinion hosts and commentators, which recently spilled out on air. Earlier this month, amid these clashes, longtime anchor Shepard Smith announced he was departing Fox News after 23 years.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
