It’s official, in Hollywood, no man in power is immune from abusing his power.   Earlier this week, NBC announced that Matt Lauer has been fired from his post at the news station.  The firing reportedly came after numerous women came forward revealing that they had been sexually assaulted; harassed, or flat out demeaned by Lauer all together.

The news sent shock-waves through the journalism community, mostly, because Lauer was once considered the creme of the crop in New York journalism.   Now,   new reports suggest that the issue may not have been isolated.   Reports published Thursday claim that Lauer “regularly cheated on his wife of 19 years”  and often behind her back.

During the publication of this particular report, The Daily News, has received a statement from Matt Lauer that has been delivered to multiple outlets. It goes as follows.

“There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry.…as I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC,” Lauer said in a statement.

“Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed,” Lauer said. “I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly…repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I’m committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full time job.”

Meanwhile,  it emerged this morning that there are at least 8 women.  In those claims,  at least one of them   is actual sexual assault which could potentially lead to criminal investigations per lawyers for the woman involved.
