No sooner do you go out for a few hours of simple, carefree pleasure…

…like I did this afternoon (that is—to the dentist, to discover I might need a root canal; to the eye doctor, to get the staff to finally hand over my new prescription in the right format instead of the wrong format; to Walmart’s Vision Center to choose new driving glasses in an attempt, perhaps vain, to keep up with the ripening cataract in my left eye), and what do you know?

You return home and discover that a whole new article has come out about the story you thought you’d already covered earlier this afternoon.

So back to the drawing board for a while to digest it (I know, I know; mixed metaphor).

[ADDENDUM: My new post is now up, reflecting more recent developments.]

    Just say no to the internet and endless running down into the sexual harassment rabbit hole.

    I’ve heard the old expression “hoist on one’s own petard” many times – but I had never seen it occur until this:

    If even half of what is alleged against Lauer is true, then his hypocrisy is surely world class.

  5. blert Says:

    It’s now revealed that Matt Lauer is being bombed by a FLOOD of revelations — many which don’t consist of she-said, he-said.

    The NBC top brass knew PLENTY — a long time back.

    Lauer has been screwing his distaff for Y E A R S — to the general knowledge of the NBC elites.

    His right-hand man is going down the chutes, too.

    Left this comment on the previous Lauer thread. More appropriate here.

    I’ve now read more about the Matt Lauer case. It turns out that he was a horn dog with a lot of money and power. He probably had a lot of women willing to have consensual sex with him, but felt bullet proof and attempted some unwanted advances that have finally landed him in hot water. I doubt seriously that this was the first complaint that NBC got about him. They learned about the stories that the NYTs and Variety were coming out with and decided to get ahead of the story. It appears that Lauer’s rep as a horn dog was known, but kept well out of public view.
    I would like to hear his side of the story, though. I get the feeling that a few civil suits are coming his way. He better lawyer up and get his side of the story out. He’s not only lost his $25 million per year job, he may be looking at paying some damages for pain and suffering.

    Given some things they are saying he did, a lot of people got some splaining bout their past… a few other things border on criminal misdemeanor (or more? what did they charge iggy pop for? and that was a crowd)

    in the theater of the bigger picture this is gonna get more interesting than the schlock films being cranked out…

    we aint gonna notice crap for a while

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
