"Today" show host Matt Lauer has always been so arrogant. In this instance Matt Lauer attacked Bill O'Reilly at his lowest moment. Think he regrets it?
Even though Lauer is a morning show host, he likes to pretend he is a journalist. He is nowhere near that.
Today Matt Lauer was suddenly fired over what NBC has described as very credible allegations. Poof, the $25 million man is gone. He committed "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace."
This reminded us of something. Remember when Lauer roasted Bill O'Reilly over his own sexual allegations while he was a host at Fox News? We do.
Remember this specific question Lauer proposed to O'Reilly?
"But think about those five women and what they did," Lauer says. "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-wracking that must have been. Doesn't that tell you how strongly they felt about the way they were treated by you?"

Per Daily Wire:
"You were accused of sexual harassment," Lauer says to O'Reilly, the two sitting opposite each other in high chairs. "You said at the time you did absolutely nothing wrong. Do you stand by that?"
"I do," O'Reilly says in the September 19 interview.
"So did you provide Fox News any evidence, any information that you think could have changed their minds as to what you were guilty or not guilty of?" Lauer asks.
Then this absolutely wonderful exchange happens.
"You were probably the last guy in the world that they wanted to fire, because you were the guy that the ratings and the revenues were built on. You carried that network on your shoulders for a lot of years," Lauer said. "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?"
O’Reilly says no, calling that a "false assumption."
"There were a lot of other business things in play at that time and still today that 21st Century was involved with," O’Reilly says. "And it was a business decision that they made. But there isn’t any smoking gun."
"But you don’t let your No. 1 guy go unless you have information that you think makes him…" Lauer says.
"Sure you do," O'Reilly says. "That's not true. There are billions of dollars at stake in business deals, and they made a business decision that they could possibly prosper more without me."
Does Lauer remember doing this as he is going through the exact same thing himself? Either way karma has struck and he is out a $25 million a year job.
