I guess Matt Lauer is full of
regret and is
soul-searching and wants to
repair the damage he has done, so he is weeping to the press.
There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions,Lauer said in the statement released to the network.To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry.
Lauer said that some of what he has been accused of is untrue and mischaracterized but said,there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.

I’m sure he is embarrassed now. But the man had a trapping button installed in his desk — you came in to meet the boss, he’d press his secret button, and click, you were trapped in there with him and couldn’t get out until he let you.

Here’s the deal, Matt. You screwed yourself while trying to screw others, and no one feels any particular reason to redeem you. You were a dime-a-dozen talent who was paid $25 million a year, doing a job that any of thousands of women could have done better, with more class and insight than you ever demonstrated…and they wouldn’t be leaving a trail of slime everywhere they went. You’ve got millions of dollars socked away, I’m sure, and can just go sink out of sight, to everyone’s relief. Disappearing without a fuss would be in your interest, too, because all you’re doing now is reminding us that you have a fat bank account full of undeserved loot, and a trail of women whose careers were stunted by your selfish actions.
Vanish, little man. Your deflation has only just begun.
