In today's Dirty Laundry Report... Matt Lauer is OUT - and you know Ann Curry is doing a Big Old Happy Karma Dance. GOOD MORNING EVERYONE! -LBF
A memo went out this morning concerning Matt Lauer and a sexual misconduct allegation and he was not suspended, but FIRED! This was the first complaint, but they were led to believe this was not an isolated incident. I need to see this memo!

Matt does not have a great track record on how he treats women. A friend of mine waited on him regularly at restaurant and he was inappropriate. We all know he was AWFUL to Ann Curry.
Al Roker took a not-so-subtle SHOT at Matt Lauer on the "Today" show... and it pissed Matt the hell off!

Ugh. I feel particularly upset about news people doing this. We are supposed to be able to trust them. Imagine what was going thru his head when he interviewed Bill O'Reilly?

He had a reputation. I guess I thought he just a dog, but this is major!
