Journalism should be centered around finding the untold story, but in liberal media–it is all about retelling the same rumors.
The largest liberal media target two months ago was Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, who was reportedly fired for sexual harassment allegations.
Prior to allegations of his own sexual harassment surfacing, “Today Show” star Matt Lauer hypocritically grilled O’Reilly in a one-on-one interview.

In the interview, Lauer is seen repeatedly trying to paint O’Reilly as a creep–all the while knowing that his own misconduct could surface at any time.
“You were probably the last guy in the world that they wanted to fire. Because you’re the guy that the ratings and the revenues were built on. You carried that network on your shoulders for a lot of years. 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?” asked Matt Lauer.
Only two months after this interview took place, Lauer was fired under the same pretenses as O’Reilly. The allegations against Lauer date back to 2001, long before this interview ever took place.
Lauer has been with the NBC network for over 20 years and during that time, rumors have flown around about his mistreatment towards women.
“But you don’t let your number one guy go unless you have information,” stated Lauer.

Isn’t it ironic that Lauer could make such a bold statement?
Lauer was NBC’s number one guy, so does this mean that the allegations against him are true? His own statement speaks for itself.
“Think about those five women and what they did. 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 how they were treated by you?” asked Lauer.
Well, Lauer the women that have come forward against you were brave enough to go up against a big star, too.
What does this say about liberal media? They are hypocrites!

With his easygoing charm, Lauer has long been a lucrative and highly visible part of NBC News and one of the highest-paid figures in the industry, and his downfall shook the network and stunned many of the roughly 4 million viewers who start their day with him.
He is easily one of the biggest names brought down in recent weeks by the wave of sexual misconduct allegations that have swept through Hollywood, the media and politics.
Network news chief Andrew Lack said in a memo to the staff that NBC received a complaint about Lauer’s behavior on Monday and determined he violated company standards. NBC said the misconduct started when Lauer and a network employee were at the Sochi Olympics in 2014 and continued beyond that assignment.
Lack said it was the first complaint lodged against Lauer in his 20 years at NBC, but “we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”

NBC News received two new complaints against Lauer on Wednesday, “NBC Nightly News” reported. The network didn’t respond to a request for comment.
It was time that someone brought to light the kind of creep he is. Lauer, you are an embarrassment to the journalism world!
