Long-time newsman Matt Lauer is out of a job.
The former NBC News journalist and previous host of “The Today Show” was just let go amid allegations of sexual misconduct that go back years… but just two months ago, the same man was sanctimoniously lecturing Bill O’Reilly about similar accusations.
During a September interview with the sacked Fox News host, NBC’s Lauer smugly implied that there must have been overwhelming evidence against O’Reilly for the right-leaning network to let him go.
“You were probably the last guy in the world that they wanted to fire because you were the guy that the ratings and the revenues were built on, you carried that network on your shoulders for a lot of years,” he stated.
“So doesn’t it seem safe to assume that the people at Fox News were given a piece of information or given some evidence that simply made it impossible for you to stay on at Fox News?”
O’Reilly denied any wrongdoing, but pointed out that every major media organization — including Matt Lauer’s employer — faced these types of claims. That statement would end up being eerily prescient.
“Every company in this country, including this one, Comcast, has these lawsuits, every one,” O’Reilly said.
Lauer stayed on his high horse, and took the side of women who made allegations against the Fox host.
“But think about those five women and what they did,” he lectured.
“They came forward and filed complaints against the biggest star at the network they worked at. Think of how intimidating that must have been, how nerve-racking that must have been. Doesn’t that tell you how strongly they felt about the way they were treated by you?”
Remember, the claims against NBC’s Matt Lauer began back in 2014. That means that as he sat scolding Bill O’Reilly, he almost certainly knew that his own scandal was waiting in the wings.
Or, perhaps, he was too arrogant to consider that it might happen to him.
Frustratingly, that is probably the more likely scenario. If the last several months have shown us anything, it’s that prominent liberals believe that they are perfectly moral and invincible — right until the moment that they lose their careers.
We’ve seen this time and time again with the left. They claim to hold the moral high ground, but are actually up to their necks in filth.
It’s time to stop pretending that a person’s political leanings magically make them more moral or less flawed than the rest of humanity. More and more, it looks like liberal elitists actually believe that being “part of the movement” absolves them from personal responsibility.
Americans are tired of hypocrisy, and they’re tired of being lectured by smug elitists. The dominoes are toppling, and Lauer was just the latest in a long line of falling elitists.
