NBC Still Investigating NBC: Chris Matthews Is 9th Staffer Accused of Misconduct

Posted by M. C. on December 19, 2017

NBC should get it’s self investigation advice from the FIB.

NBC paid off a Chris Matthews accuser with $40,000, which means that the network has now had nine of its staffers and contributors accused of some sort of misconduct.

The real news, though, is that despite the fact NBC has a very serious cultural problem when it comes to its treatment of women, the network is still refusing to go the Fox News route by calling for an outside investigation. After the fall of Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly over harassment allegations (both denied), Fox hired an outside law firm to investigate the allegations as well as how the network handled them…

Here is the list, so far, of the NBC staffers and contributors accused of various forms of misconduct:

Mark Halperin – Fired over allegations — that numerous reports tell us everyone knew about —  of harassment, misconduct, rubbing his erect (but clothed) penis up against female staffers, and masturbating in front of a staffer.

Matt Lauer – Fired over allegations of horrific misconduct that, according to various reports, were an open secret.

Mike Tirico – Recently hired by NBC Sports to anchor the upcoming Winter Olympics, despite the fact that NBC knows that back in the 90s he was accused of “stalking, groping, and making explicit comments to female colleagues.”

Larry Gaetano – After 20 years with NBC News, Gaetano was fired two weeks ago over allegations of misconduct, something NBC apparently was aware of for a while.

Harold Ford Jr. – Prominent Morning Joe contributor fired two weeks ago from Morgan Stanley over allegations of “harassment, intimidation, and forcibly grabbing a woman several years ago.”

Matt Zimmerman – Senior NBC News executive fired in November for numerous allegations of  sexual misconduct that includes harassment, flashing, preying on interns and production assistants.

Alec Baldwin – Hired by NBC’s Saturday Night Live despite his long history of bullying women and homophobia.

David Corn – Prominent MSNBC contributor currently under investigation for harassment and unwanted touching.

Chris Matthews  – NBC News refuses to say if there are other accusations against its longtime star.
