They all knew about Matt Lauer: Friends/associates joked about "C*ck of the Rock's" sexcapades at 2008 roast

Matt Lauer
From Daily Mail: Former NBC executive Jeff Zucker who claimed to have never heard ‘a whisper’ of Matt Lauer’s sexual misconduct joked about his in-office antics at an explicit comedy roast in 2008 which was described at the time as ‘three hours of d*** jokes’.
Zucker, who worked with Lauer on Today between 1992 and 2000, was among several guest speakers at the event.
Earlier this week, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said he had to leave it because it was full of jokes about Lauer ‘pushing himself on people’ and ‘having sex with employees’.
While Zucker’s jokes were by no means the most graphic and none centered on harassment or assault, he won laughs from the room by discussing Lauer’s quirky sexual habits.  ‘I don’t want to say Matt is a germophobe, but he’s the only guy I know who uses Purell both before and after he masturbates,’ was one remark. In another crude inference, he told the room: ‘It’s good to see Matt up here and not under my desk.’
The jokes were part of the Friar’s Club Roast at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.
Martha Stewart, one of the other guest speakers, declared to applause: ‘I hear NBC executives call Matt the C**k of the Rock,’ a reference to the network’s Manhattan headquarters. 
There is no footage of the event because cameras were banned except for one which snapped Tom Cruise, another guest speaker, at the start of the event.
Some but not all of the jokes were recorded by a Village Voice editor who took notes under his table. His contemporaneous report of the event resurfaced this week after Zucker’s claim that he had ‘never heard a whisper’ of Lauer’s newly-alleged impropriety.
‘Just got back from the Hilton in midtown after three hours of d*** and p***y  jokes from some of the biggest stars of TV and film,’ wrote The Voice’s Tony Ortega at the time.
The fact that the audience was comprised of 1,900 media and entertainment insiders makes current proclamations of shock at Lauer’s recent firing and alleged misconduct against junior staffers and assistants increasingly unsettling.
‘This was a comedic roast, but there was clearly a vein of truth running through all those jokes. You had Katie Couric, Meredith Vieira and Jeff Zucker all standing up there joking about his sex in the office, his kinkiness.’
‘They all knew,’ one media executive who was present told Fox News.  It is not known which other NBC executives attended. President Donald Trump, who relished Lauer’s firing last week and declared NBC and Comcast ‘fake news’, was also there.
Noah Oppenheim, president of NBC news, has insisted he was not aware of any complaints as has Andy Lack, NBC’s chairman who announced Lauer’s firing last week.
Current staffers say all were aware but formed a ‘boys’ club’ to protect Lauer and sweep complaints ‘under the carpet’.
NBC stars Meredith Vieira, Katie Couric, Martha Stewart and Bob Saget were among other speakers who took the jokes at the 2008 further. Vieira joked about both her and Couric having sex with Lauer.
‘Look at Katie Couric. She juggled Matt’s balls for six years.  ‘That’s three years per ball. She squeezed those suckers so tight, she left nothing for me. Thanks, Katie,’ she said.

Lauer, Lack, Oppenheimer, Franken and the rest are angry and resentful beta males. They’re obviously physically beta males, but also largely so because in any but the money bought bubble they rule over they’re the worst sort of cowards. Such men can only express their seething resentment at real men by sexually abusing women as surrogates or beating up on the wage slaves forced to wait on them. All these revelations will amount to nothing so long as these American-hating, woman-hating, and anti-Christian cruds control the media and entertainment, which will be forever if the bought-and-paid-for Republican establishment remains in… Read more »

All of these allegations serve at least two purposes. One is to avenge killary on some of the journalists that pissed her off during interviews – and there are several of them who have fallen from grace recently for the same accusation, the other is to pave the way for the dnc to demand Trump resign. They’re trying to build up a public case against Trump, all these dems are being forced out of office while Trump remains, and Roy Moore is sure to be elected, despite allegations against both. Franken and crazy Bernie Sanders are both calling for Trump… Read more »

How vulgar to hear women speak like this in public or anywhere. Zucker has to be lying or is the most incredibly dumbest man on earth.
I live in a remote area and I have heard these rumors for years and I never watch his program.
Very few have a leg to stand on when it comes to scruples.

Birds of a feather flock together, ALL OF THEM are lascivious, unprincipled and rotten to the core, they laugh and think is a funny joke, and they leave me wondering do they have children, grandchildren? What would they do if any of their children were abused?

Of course, they didn’t hear a “whisper” about it– everybody was openly guffawing…

I said this months ago and I was chastised for it. But I’m going to say it again. These people (Holy Wood and media) are all filthy, sex cult, secret society members. Here’s Katie Couric 5 years ago.

Lauer used Nair rather than Rogaine. He’s actually the Pepe LePew of news.
