Matt Lauer Issues Apology

Here we go. We knew it was coming. Was only a matter of time. NBC News anchor Matt Lauer has issued an apology after news broke yesterday he was fired for sexual misconduct, TMZ reports.

“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.

“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. 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. The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my own troubling flaws. It’s been humbling. I am blessed to be surrounded by the people I love. I thank them for their patience and grace.”

Unfortunately, a video of him making an inappropriate comment to Meredith Vieira has surfaced, which doesn’t help his case. Perhaps all the rumors aren’t true, but he’s still pretty guilty.
