That’s one perspective.
When his “Today” show co-host Savannah Guthrie broke the news of Lauer’s firing on air, she was clearly devastated.“… I’m heartbroken for Matt. He is my dear, dear friend and my partner,” Guthrie said on the show. “He is beloved by many, many people here.” Guthrie added she also was heartbroken for the woman who came forward to tell her story and for those who might still come forward. Her fill-in co-host Hoda Kotb joined the Lauer lovefest.Why would Guthrie and Kotb immediately rush in to praise Lauer before they even had details of the story? This type of selfish, blind loyalty is what enables these predators to reign with terror over working women in the first place. Must we always show this automatic sympathy for men we know who’ve shown such cruelty to women?It’s infuriating.
