Nov. 29 – Making another addition to the growing list of public figures being accused of sexual harassment, Matt Lauer has been fired from NBC News.

After an employee filed a complaint about sexual misconduct within the workplace, NBC terminated Matt Lauer’s employment.

The complaint was filed Monday night, Lauer was fired Wednesday morning.

Lauer’s Today Show co-host Savannah Guthrie made the announcement.

Although expressing sympathy to Lauer, Guthrie mentioned the importance of women finally feeling comfortable enough to speak out against harassment and abuse.

According to the chairman of NBC News Andrew Lack, “this may not have been an isolated incident.”

The story had evidently been developing prior to the file of this particular complaint. “I read that the New York Times was ready to break the story so I am surprised he didn’t resign first,” says Skutt Catholic teacher Mrs. Ruth Kros. “He should be prosecuted regardless if he was fired or resigned. How would he feel if his mother, sister, wife or daughter were in a work environment that this was going on?”

“I believe in the past [women] were afraid they would lose their jobs if they reported [sexual harassment],” added Kros. “Because of the number of recent reports this is being taken seriously and it is not just a ‘hazard’ of working outside the home.”
