Laurer has been at NBC for 41 years and is no doubt a 100 millionaire plus as a well paid, will say anything his bosses want, talking head. He's probably not that worried about it unless there are criminal charges to come.

So far I've only heard of one accuser, but one is enough if the accusations are serious. And they must be.

41 years! He is only 59. Somehow I don't remember him being on the Today show in 1976.

He was overpaid and overrated...I remember reading a story about NBC flying him in every morning via Helicopter from the Hamptons...like what's so great about him? He will be fine he's a typical hypocrite talking about others while doing it himself

Indeed. That is an NBC owned station.
