In a shocking move NBC has terminated Matt Lauer over sexual allegations after a review
In a shocking move NBC has terminated Matt Lauer over sexual allegations after a review. This is huge because it was not previously made public, it happened so quickly and there does not seem to be much pushback about it from Lauer himself. It seems clear something happened, there was an investigation and the result was termination. Clearly NBC and the media are working on this major issue.
Yet the President of the United States has now declared his own tapes expressing his own misdeeds are in fact fake. This after admitting they were real just a year ago. The President is even Tweeting this morning about the media and these allegations.
Why is it we are holding people like Matt Lauer and Billy Bush to standards higher than that of US President? Not only has the President said and been accused of some egregious things but he now deems it ok for himself to pass judgement on these cases?
We must stop this double standard of holding the press to standards that we do not hold the President to. Especially if he plans on Tweeting about everything that happens to NBC, CNN and other outlets. NBC moved swiftly on the Lauer issue, Congress should take note on what it means to be responsible even if it hurts the bottom line.
