This mornig Americas woke up to the news that Matt Lauer, one of the most popular journalists and hosts in the nation, was fired for “inappropriate sexual behavior”.
The news of this has been blowing up Facebook feeds and taking over the networks all day. Friend and fellow coworkers seem shocked and in disbeilef, including Megyn Kelly.
After hearing about Lauer’s behavior she posted a heartbreaking response on “Today”.
“This one does hit close to home”, Megyn said. “I too have known Matt for a long time and he has been a friend, and kind and supportive to me in my transition to NBC news. I see the anguish on my colleagues faces.”
After a few sentiments on how Matt has helped her she then went on about how hard it is to deal with something this hard.
When this happens what we don’t see is the pain on the faces of those who found the courage to come forward, and it is a terrifying thing to do. we don’t see the career opportunities women loose because of sexual harassment, or the intense stress it causes a woman dealing with it when she comes to work each day.
