Good. Never liked him after I saw a clip on him with black nylons and high heels and commando. Red would be better. Hope Chuck Todd is next.

#Me to, these seems to be getting out of hand now there is now way all these guys legitimately did some kind of sexual abuse. Here before long there are going to be men's business then women's business oh that's right it used to be that way then the independent woman wanted equal rights and now this is what you have. There is a reason there used to be division and now we are seeing why!!!!!!

Weather you like the guy or not this is getting out of control. We should all be worried. It seems just a complaint is enough these days. There is going to be a huge backlash from all of this.

Firings don't usually happen until a complaint has been investigated, or there is an overwhelming number of complainants.

Seems like more than just a complaint or accusation. Sound like they got some solid evidence.

Not advocating sexual harassment but this trend has evolved into a war on men. Anyone in a coed workplace: don't look at any woman or you'll be next.

And Lauer was a lech anyway.

The rumors about his behavior have been swirling for some time, especially after the Ann Curry fiasco. She was there a long time and probably knows where a bunch of skeletons are buried. Got to wonder if his side stooge Roker is in the sights or if he is protected?

So, hopefully nobody on here ever watched that jerk. Hope Bob Costas and a few cnn talking heads will be next.

Never liked that dude, or hardly anyone on tv for that matter, but it seems like this is just another waive of America having it's nuts cut.

I don't know Mr. Costas but I turn the channel whenever he comes on.

This trend of knee-jerk reaction doesn't fall into the category of what usually happens. If there had been multiple complaints and an investigation I am sure it would have been included in the press release.

NBC fires senior executive, who was Matt Lauer’s booker, for 'inappropriate conduct' with women.

Goes around comes around.

Al Roker seemed very somber this morning when giving his weather report. Perhaps he is next

I'm thinking NBC is one step closer to resolving the transgendered bathroom issue. There won't be any men left in the work place so that frees up a bathroom.

That's what I was thinking, there won't be any men left in the workplace.
