( Embattled NBC executives have been falling over themselves, insisting they had no idea about Matt Lauer’s pervy past.

But if anyone doubts that New York’s media elite was aware of Lauer’s reputation, they should look no further than a top-secret “roast” of Lauer that took place in October 2008.

The notorious event ─ now legendary in New York media circles ─ pushed the outer limits of sexist, racist, homophobic and obscene jokes — and left little doubt that Lauer’s colleagues knew NBC’s biggest star had a troubled marriage and a wandering eye.

Last week, NBC’s own Joe Scarborough, who attended the roast but said he left early, feeling uncomfortable, brought it up on “Morning Joe.”

Lauer’s peccadillos, he said, were not just known about.

At the roast, they were celebrated.

“The whole theme was that he does the show and then he has sex with people, with employees,” Scarborough said. “So was this whispered behind closed doors? No. It was shouted from the mountaintops and everybody laughed about it.”

The 2008 Friars Club roast took place at the New York Hilton and was attended by everyone from future President Donald Trump to TV legend Norman Lear to a constellation of New York’s media elite including Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer, Nancy O’Dell and Howard Stern.

Also on hand were numerous top executives from across the business and almost everyone who was anyone at NBC News.

Fox News has confirmed many details of the roast with a media executive who attended, and has also drawn on the one contemporaneous account of the roast, which appeared in The Village Voice….


  • Roert Redden

    Maybe he can share a cell with Edward Weiner.

    • minefinder624

      Who would get to be the girl?

      • larry outlaw

        both of them, two backbdoor idiots in the same cell.

  • Shelba J. Holmes

    Creepy crawly. The network ought to be sued by the people who were harmed by that creep if they truly knew about his penchant for violating others. There is absolutely no excuse for looking the other way when you are in the position that network is in.

    • minefinder624

      As more comes out , you may expect to see some sort of class action against NBC by the sundry victims.

      • Shelba J. Holmes

        We can only hope that looking the other way while Lauer was treating women as objects turns out to be a very expensive proposition for NBC

  • Louie Rey

    It’s all a matter of following the money. The guy was getting paid $25 million a year because he was the lead guy on a show that pulled in $500 million a year in revenue. So are you going to jeopardize that kind of money when you’re only paying him 5% of that? Of course not so whatever dalliances he had, regardless of where they took place, was looked the other way by the higher ups.

  • JonBlake

    The Chickens are coming home to roost on these disgusting Liberals.
    Banish them to NOKO now

  • Bernie

    I have been saying for years that the left is full of phonies, sexists and bigots!

    • Joe Pewter

      YEP…finally we have a Great voice thru Trump

      • Tractorman

        Trump is to Dumb to do a lot for anyone except himself ,even his own people said he was a Moron.

  • Al Chemist

    The conclusion: The MSM is packed to the gills with highly paid sexual predators, low moral bureaucrats, adulterers, liars, miscreants, outright criminals, perverts, and not a few victims.

    • backtofront

      Left wing all of them,otherwise they wouldn’t be working for MSM.

    • Mark Mechau

      “All it takes for evil to thrive, is when good people say and/or do NOTHING”

  • Oscar Pearson

    Lets have Mueller investigate the liberal media. LOL

    • Joe Pewter

      would be great..mueller would then have to admit ..he is also a creator of Fake news MSM

      • Tractorman

        The real fake is Donald J.Trump and the family ,value,Hypocrite ,Sarah “Fat” “Black Eyes “Huckabee,also with Fox-TV.

        • tomini

          Aren’t you quite the hater? You libs are such lovely, tolerant and respectful ….. NOT.

          • Mark Mechau

            Plz refer to Tractorman’s reply.

        • Wayen Franzen

          sorry Joe, go with the flow. You’re on the outside like the other lefties.

        • Mark Mechau

          Tractorman is correct! It matters little what affiliation’s you may have, but on how you conduct yourself in public as well as
          private. What can you do with an individual who has consistently blamed everyone else for his
          misguided leadership, which btw is almost nonexistent , and ends with childish tantrums one would expect from a child with ADD. However Tractorman, calling Ms. Sanders names does not render you blameless.

          • Suzu M

            All this may be true, and he’s STILL better than Clinton would have been. ouch.

        • sosmartru

          WOW. You are seething with jealousy and hatred. Body-shaming women is despicable.
          Ditto for LYING about Our President.

        • Ralph Trout

          your comments show you to be a bigot…..congrats, you’re a real……leftist…..and your personal assault on the WH spokesman also show’s you’re not to be taken seriously..

      • Oscar Pearson

        RIGHT on!

    • Tractorman

      Mueller,has a Full time Job,looking into and sending to jail trump family and Friends also the ” Donald too”

      • tomini

        Don’t wait for your wish too long. Your corrupt queen will be first.

    • Kathryn Jordan

      That would be good. Let’s see how many more people, like Lauer, are in these places. Bad enough we are seeing it in Congress. Mueller will have his hands full in this.

  • Rippie

    20-15 years ago, I did a stint in news writing and even then, the rumors about what a creeper Lauer was ran freely in the industry and outside of the NBCverse, and not just in TV and not just in NYC.

    It has simply been the nature of the industry forever, and that’s a terrible thing that will abate for a while and resume shortly. There will always be power disparities to leverage in a predatory way. That will NOT change.

  • RealAmerican407

    Of course they were aware…

    Just like Mueller knew his team was full of anti-Trump hacks.

    Just like Congress knew it’s ranks were full of perverts.

    • Tractorman

      Yes just look at Prevert ,Republican ,who claimed to be a family,value,hypocrite
      ,lying ,Christian.Roy Moore who was raping children when he was in his 30’s.

      • RealAmerican407

        I would prefer to look at the yearbook which is supposed to be the smoking gun.

        Oh wait… that’s right. They won’ produce it. How convenient.

      • metalman56

        We had an opportunity to send a message loud and clear 20 years ago. I guess you were to young to remember Presiden William Jefferson Clinton. That explains your ignorance tractorman. Oh by the way John F Kennedy too. But of course they were willing to buy votes by pretending to support womens rights. As they were reaching for thier panties.

      • tomini

        Couldn’t they find any liars with more recent accounts…..really. The democrap handbook when you can’t beat them fair and square accuse them of crap we do. You knew it was all made up when Gloria Alred showed up. She represents all the lying, paid off accusers whose dignity and memories wake up when the green is pushed under their noses.

        What happened to all those Trump and Herman Caine accusers when they were no longer needed? They crawled back under the rocks from which they came.

      • Ralph Trout

        proof ?……provide a link….because “you say so” doesn’t mean “S” to me…….I guess what ?……’re gonna quote Gloria Alread ?…..or the lady who ADMITTED that the yearbook signature was fake ?………..I won’t wait though, cause from your other comments, it’s quite clear… simply aren’t credible or apparently informed enough to be taken seriously…….I’ll let you now get back to your msnbc ‘cut and paste’ gibberish……….

  • Rhesa

    Who the heck would want him. He is a bigot & it’s me, me, me, not only for him but most of the ones that are on the news. So far ABC hasn’t had any trouble yet!!! We are still waiting because you know more will come out of the woodwork. hahaha

  • dahniuru

    $$$$$$$$$$ brings power that brings $$$$$$$$$$$. Time to put a hard stop to this kind of ruthless behavior, by following and executing the law fairly and immediately.

  • Blue

    Lauer is and was a left wing shill. I quite watching Today because he was such a phony, and that was clear years ago. Clear double standard .

    • Joe Pewter

      YEP..the auto button lock thing in lauer’s office even makes him more guilty and creepy

  • Eguth3

    It was going on for close to 20 years at NBC News and they allowed it to continue instead of stopping it. My dad worked there and had witnessed the sexual harassment that it got so bad he went to his supervisors and warned them about this behavior. Lauer is just the tip of the NBC News iceberg. Lauer walked around like he was Hugh Hefner at the Playboy mansion. The fact that he bought a dildo as a “joke” to one of his female colleagues, just shows how out of touch he and so many of the men who worked for the news division, including the former executive producer of Today and is now President of the failing CNN, Jeff Zucker. They were a tag team. It was about humiliating their female colleagues. I’m sad that my dad wasn’t here to see the take down of Matt Lauer. He past away last year.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    I never thought I would hear that Matt Lauer would become part of this problem that is facing our nation: sexual harassment. NBC should have been aware of what was going on. I feel for the women who were violated by Lauer. I would not be surprised if there will be a class action suit against NBC by these victims.

  • Philomena

    Of course all the NBC elites were aware of what Matt Lauer was like, now they try to pretend that were not aware.

  • Beeker D.

    Every time `Whoopeee, Rosie Hosie O’Donnell and Joy BeAhore` are on TV I feel :VIOLATED, DISGUSTED, ASSAULTED and DIRTY.

  • posercom

    The tribe that controls our media and our politicians, elevates the sick an depraved, knowing that if they deviate from the pro-globalist agenda, they can be black mailed into submission. They did it will Bill Clinton and got the foreign policy they wanted. They may be doing it now with Trump as they finally got Jerusalem as their capital at exactly the time that their intelligence ops in the U.S. were about to take down his presidency. These are all lodge brothers who take secret oaths to protect each other people, UNLESS one deviates from Albert Pikes globalist agenda.. They never cared about US! We are just the Goyim.

    • posercom

      Oh, and the same goes for Breitbart, bigly!

  • Texas Belle

    Don’t think these actions don’t go on at other networks and other businesses. It is rampant but kept secret until someone has the guts to let it all be known.

  • Tractorman

    Just keep on wishing moron trump worshiper. Moron trump is a liar,crook,and a cheat and not fit to be a dogcatcher.

    • Jan Labij

      Well, if there ever was any doubt before, we sure know who you are now,

      • Tractorman

        Really Jan ,and what are you?

  • Cissy Nobbe

    Just think, if President Trump had not been so outspoken, these issues would still be hidden by the “politically correct” under the traitorous leadership of Hilary Clinton! President Trump has opened the door to air out the whole political world by his courageous speech and actions. If he had been a crooked liar like Obama and all other previous presidents, this never would have happened. Look at the incredible liberation that is now happening for the American females, for which the liberals take credit!! HaHa! If this had been true, it would have happened under Obama. Correct?!!!

  • Suzu M

    And the moral of the story…don’t do anything that you’d be ashamed for the media to get a hold of.

  • Tractorman

    I Know the truth hurts ,but it is true.

  • Sylvia Avila

    No surprise, everyone knew about Matt. After all it’s a boy’s club were talking about! They do not care about Women’s feelings, they have proven It, seems some men unable to control their sexual habits. Women need to take better control of their lives and turn in any advances Not Welcome.

  • Suzu M

    It’s interesting to me that, while Matt’s name is brought up, the names of the other employees he’s been involved with, are not. Why? I don’t care if someone is famous or not, guilty is guilty. EVERYONE should be ashamed.

  • Roy Veteto

    it sickens me to no end when someone claims to represent something and they are not living up to it [like a politician who claims to represent family values and is having affairs] or when someone attacks someone else for doing something and they are doing it as well

  • baitmando

    How sick can the left freaking get.

  • John

    What’s funny/ sickening is that the things these libs have DONE is even worse than what they have accused Trump of and definitely worse than anything he’s ever said.

  • Kim LaMela

    You Know the Liberal MSM must think all Americans are as stupid as their Liberal Base. We know at least most of us how Bad Hollywood the Music Industry and Political Leaders who have always Hung Around with these so Called Stars and Business Elites have been and still are, It’s been Hushed up, Paid off, or Scared off, for more years then Many of us have been alive. The Sad Fact for Liberal Democrats is that they Don’t Allow Republicans in their Circles so the Numbers of Sexual Misconduct for Liberals and Democrats have and will most likely continue to sky rocket beyond our Imagination as we are Witnessing. Their Money and Perverse Actions are Very enticing it seems to Liberals and Democrats, as we are Observing every day.

    • Ralph Trout

      you are EXACTLY RIGHT……the left considers anyone who doesn’t “think” the way they’ve been “programmed” as being stupid…….and the real irony is the morons still don’t understand that that attitude helped keep the fat lying pig out of the WH.

  • Doc Sarvis

    Roy Moore’s Sexcapades were known by local shopping mall security and the general community where he lived.

    • Ralph Trout

      mall manager has said Moore was not banned from the mall…so there’s a leak in your info that taints the rest of your remarks….but we all know that rather than comment directly you went straight to the “but …but Moore…”: defense……….were the people you name lecturing the rest of us about how women should be treated ?……did they look down on the others because as media elites they’re smarter, more educated and just better than ‘US DAYUM RURAL, COTTON PICKIN MURICA FIRST NAZI FASCIST RED NECKS ?……..please….just stop…’re in the wrong place…..your place has yellow in the background…..

  • Ralph Trout

    so these same ELITES……who reported the yearbook thing that leftists TOOK TO BE THE TRUTH……………you’ll have to look pretty hard for this one…………………….

    The woman who claims Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore attempted to
    sexually assault her when she was a 16-year-old schoolgirl – and offered
    her signed yearbook as proof they knew each other – emerged Friday to
    change her story.

    Beverly Young Nelson now says that under what she says is Moore’s
    signature are some notes, including a date and location that she herself
    wrote, not Moore.

  • Tractorman

    And I guess that you support Roy Moore The rapist of small children , who claims to be a family,value, Hypocrite,Republican ,Christian. Just as Moron Trump is..

  • Tractorman

    Short Fingers mean short other things too. just as trump is.why he would watch little girl dress at a beauty contest.. because he owned the show, Trump is a pervert..
