and sexual abuse may be
even worse than anyone thought

As it turns out, NBC's investigation of NBC showing there is no evidence of a “culture of sexual harassment” at NBC may not have been so thorough as the network would have you believe. MSNBC president Phil Griffin, for example, grew so comfortable in whatever culture produced disgraced former host Matt Lauer that he once touted photos of NBC star Maria Menounos’ vagina during a meeting with colleagues, according to journalist Ronan Farrow. Farrow reports in his forthcoming book, Catch & Kill: Four colleagues said Griffin was known for making lewd or crass remarks in work emails. In one meeting I'd be in after the television personality Maria Menounos's vagina had been photographed

Many of us have observed these internal investigations. An NBC hires a law firm to do an internal investigation, paying the law firm's fee, and surprise, the law firm finds NBC hasn't done anything wrong. Really? The entire process has no independence or objectivity, and the investigation is a charade, a coverup to make the issue go away. The NBC type knows it is a coverup, and that we know it, but no one is going to do anything about it, and the issue gets swept away, goal accomplished.

At least they used 'thought' instead of 'guessed' in the article headline. A lot of people guessed it was worse yet, than reported, and even they may be surprised.

"Worse than anyone thought"? Not this anyone; not me! And, I'll bet most of my fellow L-dotters knew it was worse too. How many times do we have to write this same script? Leftists are pure evil. They twist their evil as good and point the finger at others, but they're big freakin' hypocrites, who are far worse than the people they accuse.

Mia's son has turned out to be a much better journalist than Chris Wallace ever will be. After the life Ronan lived as a kid during her Woody Allen years, I am sure that has had something to do with his firm stands on abuse of all kinds. I am close to considering him an actual journalist, like during the era of Murrow. Keep it up young man, you are going places.

“If your boss does that, what are you gonna say?” said Wallace, who clarified that her sexual interactions with Lack were consensual. “You know if you say ‘I don’t want to celebrate with you,’ you’re asking for trouble.”!!!!! I think these men got away with this for so long partly due to the desperation of women who wanted to succeed in this sleazy industry. If NBC headquarters had been located in Texas I honestly believe that some woman might have pulled a gun out of her purse and told him to back off....or her boyfriend would have had an intense conversation with the guy. The way an abuser has success is by convincing the abused to share their shame and keep their secret!

I fail to understand all the supposed excitement about a picture of some womans vagina. Are these grown up men or pubescent boys? They must have been in heaven during the womans march, with all of those vagina outfits. If this is an example of the leadership at NBC, it's no wonder news reporting is in the crapper!

It's so sad these NBC execs have to retire and only live on a paltry >100 million dollars in bonuses and savings. If they didn't already have homes in Martha's Vineyard it would be difficult to buy one today. Criminal and immoral behavior by the left is never punished in any significant way.

Absolutely nothing that NBC did would surprise me. I understood their fundamental corruption and lying when they were "proving" how dangerous a particular pickup truck was by staging a crash, where the fuel tank burst and the truck turned into a flaming disaster. It turned out that NBC had rigged the gas tank with fireworks to ignite it, and the whole "report" was a total sham. I have entirely distrusted NBC since then, and that was likely 30-35 years ago.

Biden In Decline 3 replies

I never thought Joe Biden had a serious shot at the Democratic nomination. Even when he was in his prime, he wasn’t up to the task. And that was a long time ago. But it is the Ukraine scandal that is putting Biden’s candidacy to a perhaps-premature end. James Freeman describes the news media’s almost comical efforts to protect Biden: When President Trump turned to the Bidens and Ukraine in a speech, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace cut off the coverage, declaring she had to protect the listeners: “We hate to do this, really, but the president isn’t telling the truth.” When Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) tried to answer

GALLIPOLIS, Ohio – I've been a journalist for 21 years. I've never struggled to write something as much as I have this column. The assignment: Go back to the place where I grew up, here in the middle of Ohio's Appalachian region across the river from West Virginia, talk to family and friends and my hometown people and offer a perspective on the heart of Trump country that few others in the media can. Trump won 76% of the vote in Gallia County three years ago, his largest margin among Southeast Ohio counties. His sweeping success across Ohio's Appalachian region — he won 30 of the state's 32 such counties

Since the end of the Cold War, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has been fraying. Without the common Soviet threat, NATO has struggled to justify its existence. Frankly, it has outlived its usefulness. Yet, despite what many of his detractors claim, President Donald J. Trump has not broken NATO. That honor falls to Trump’s vainglorious predecessor, Barack Obama, the man who presidential historian Michael Beschloss believed to have been the “smartest guy ever to become president.” Take the present problems with America’s NATO partner, Turkey. Since the 1990s, Islamism has been on the rise in Turkey. Everyone knew it. Whereas during the Cold War, Turkey was governed

If there is one thing that Tuesday night's Democratic debate showed us—as if we didn't know it in the first place—it's just to what degree the media is in the tank for the Democrats. They're not only in the tank—they built it, filled it with water up to the brim, and would turn up the temperature to boil Donald Trump alive if they could. And maybe they can. You knew this from the outset when CNN's lead moderator Anderson Cooper, along with his compatriots, one from the New York Times, opened the festivities with a round of leading impeachment questions, giving each candidate in turn a chance

The Queen's Speech is the highlight of a day of elaborate pageantry in Westminster and is used to detail all the bills the Government wants to enact in the coming year. It is written for the 93-year-old monarch by the Government. But with Brexit in the balance before a crucial week of talks, and an unpredictable election likely soon, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been accused by rival parties of misusing the politically neutral Queen by asking her to set out his election agenda.

America’s top two Trump-hating newspapers, The New York Times and The Washington Post, have now both called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi to hold a vote of the full House of Representatives to make the “impeachment inquiry” truly official — and to set rules like those for the inquiries targeting Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, so that the minority party and the White House weren’t totally sidelined. So far, though, Pelosi and her impeachment pointman, Rep. Adam Schiff, are moving the opposite way. President Trump and other Republicans have been complaining about Schiff’s decision to hold most hearings behind closed doors, yet the Intelligence Committee chief opted for even greater secrecy

The secrecy exercised by House Democrats and their display of "raw power" in their impeachment push goes against everything the U.S. government stands for and should concern all Americans, said former special prosecutor Ken Starr on "America's Newsroom" Monday. "The answer is yes [Democrats can keep their impeachment effort behind closed doors] as a matter of raw power," he said. "That's what's being exercised. Raw power, inconsistent with the traditions of the House of Representatives and the very spirit of the House of Representatives." Starr called the process "profoundly wrong" and said the American public should be disturbed by the lack of protocol and due process.

During the October 15, Democrat debate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made clear that AR-15 owners who refuse to hand over their guns will have them taken away. O’Rourke reiterated his plan to use a government-mandated buyback to confiscate privately-owned AR-15s and AK-47s. In so doing, he claimed that each AR-15 and AK-47 in private hands is a “potential instrument of terror.” CNN’s Anderson Cooper then asked O’Rourke how he plans to get people to hand over their rifles. O’Rourke responded by explaining that he expects complains with the mandatory buybacks. He said, “I expect my fellow Americans to follow the law. The same way we enforce any provision

Madison, Wis.—The nation's largest independent spice retailer is peppering Facebook with ads calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Wisconsin-based Penzeys Spices spent nearly $100,000 on Facebook ads last week calling for Trump's impeachment, making it one of the largest social media spenders on impeachment to date. Facebook says Penzeys spent nearly $96,000 on ads supporting impeachment between Oct. 4 and Oct. 10.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was the big winner Tuesday night in Westerville, Ohio in the most crowded presidential debate ever held. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., also delivered strong performances. Former Vice President Joe Biden and the other eight candidates on stage came out the losers in the three-hour Democratic presidential primary debate. Warren’s strong performance will likely solidify her frontrunner status ahead of Biden and Sanders. She emerged the clear winner of the night by showing she was sharp and prepared as she fended off attacks from candidates who were looking to cut into her polling lead.
