Welp, looks like things have to get worse for NBC before they get better:
Breaking: Per an NBC Spokesperson: "We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman (Senior Vice President, Booking, News & Entertainment) engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBC Universal, which violated company policy. As a result he has been dismissed."

NBC has covered up abuse for decades, including covering for Trump, they do not deserve to be in business. https://t.co/vHzHVCXCnY

The executive, Matt Zimmerman, senior vice president for booking, worked in the company’s news division, and was one of the top bookers of talent and guests for “Today.”
“We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBCU, which violated company policy,” the company said in a statement, referring to NBCUniversal, the parent company of NBC. “As a result he has been dismissed.”
Zimmerman was not in the office on Tuesday and could not be reached for comment. The nature of the accusations against him were not immediately clear, though NBC policy requires executives to notify the human resources department if they are dating a direct report.
