    'They all knew': Media elites roared in laughter at obscene 2008 'roast' sending up Matt Lauer's off

    This really wouldn’t be BN, except for this line:

    Oppenheim himself told NBC staff that following his “review,” anyone still working at NBC found to have known about Lauer’s behavior and not done anything would be punished “in the most severe way possible.”

    If this holds true, much of NBC’s corporate staff, and all their star propagandists are history. The story has all of NBC in the know.

    “They ALL knew.”

    Whoops!!!

    ”Most severe way possible” doesn’t sound like a slap on the wrist or temporary suspension, but being the liars they are...

    And Fox News was in the know about Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly...yet it went on for years.

    And almost every person who voted for Trump knew that sixteen women were accusing him of sexual harassment or abuse...yet Y'ALL elected him president anyway.

    And almost every Republican in Alabama knows that Doug Moore is accused by nine women, two of whom were underage at the time, and that their story that he was banned from the mall because of his pederasty is backed up by a retired cop...yet REPUBLICANS are likely to send him to the Senate anyway.

    In other words, powerful men using their position to abuse women and get sex on demand isn't a Republican or Democratic thing - it's a guy-with-power thing.

    If they’re going with that angle, shouldn’t it be “We all knew”? The writer of this article isn’t presenting this as some kind of scoop revelation, they don’t seem surprised or unaware the event took place, they just haven’t chosen to write about it until now.

    Do you remember Herald Robbins? He wrote about this three quarters of a century ago.

    Everyone knew.

    I wonder what will be left of NBC?

    Pertinent today, especially after Matt’s Sochi perversions.

    Or was this just “locker room talk”? It was nothing compared to Trump’s comments about... when you’re a star, you can do anything... Grab ‘em by the pussy... You can do anything.

    And of course there's the entire freaking GOP that supported Trump (accused by sixteen women and who admitted to walking in on undressed teenage girls at the Miss Teen USA pageant not by accident, but because he was the owner) and Roy Moore (accused child molester).

    I don't know, but HR seems to have had his eye on the ball. Many of the allegations being leveled date back to the time he was describing. And who knows? Maybe he gave the Jonny come latelys and accusers some descriptive material to use.
