The sex scandals are pervading America right now.
What’s insane is that there seems to be no end in sight for the allegations that have infected politics, Hollywood, sports, and journalism.
And new reports show that NBC did the most despicable thing for Chris Matthews nearly two decades ago that will shock you.
Journalists are the most surprising to be purged amid the sexual misconduct scandals.
The reason it’s shocking is that journalists are supposed to have moral high ground and integrity.
But that’s not the case anymore.
Matt Lauer was recently let go by NBC for alleged sexual misconduct that goes back decades.
And do you remember when the same people who are being accused now also condemned Bill O’Reilly?
They reaped what they sowed apparently because now a new report suggests that liberal talking head Chris Matthews was accused of sexual harassment in 1999.
And NBC paid the accuser off to the tune of $40,000.
But some sleeping dogs never lie because it’s come back to bite them in the behind.
“The television network NBC paid off a woman who accused host Chris Matthews of sexual harassment back in 1999, the Daily Caller has revealed.
According to internal sources, the network paid $40,000 to an assistant producer working on Matthews’ nightly political talk show, Hardball with Chris Mathews, although an NBC spokesperson later denied this and said she was paid a considerably smaller severance package instead.
The woman reportedly complained to company executives after Matthews made a series of “inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company of others.”
A network spokesperson confirmed that the situation was formally reviewed at the time and Matthews was given a warning, after executives determined that the comments were “inappropriate and juvenile” but did not have sexual intent.
It is not clear whether Matthews’ accuser left the company as a result of the allegations, although she has consequently gone on to work in a number of high-profile media positions.
Matthews, 71, is the latest high-profile figure at the NBC network to be implicated in the ongoing sexual harassment scandal that has engulfed major figures in politics, the media, and Hollywood.
Last month, NBC fired longtime anchor Matt Lauer of the Today Show over allegations of sexual misconduct that included claims he assaulted a female staffer and harassed a number of interns, script-runners, and bookers.
In October, the network also cut ties with special contributor Mark Halperin over a slew of allegations of sexual assault and harassment, while the network’s senior vice president Matt Zimmerman was also released for failing to report his sexual relationship with female employees.”
It’s ironic that these liberal journalists preach morality and don’t follow their own advice.
They’re the epitome of, “do as I say and not as I do.”
That level of hypocrisy is unfathomable.
The only question now is, who will be the next to fall?
