On the ‘Today Show’ Thursday morning, the anchors read the disgraced anchor’s full apology on the air :
‘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,’ said Lauer.
‘The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my troubling flaws. It has been humbling.
‘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.’
We are now learning that NBC executives, who fired Lauer on Tuesday night, had proof of his sexual harassment since the intern he preyed on had kept a string of lewd messages and explicit photos he sent her during the Sochi Olympics.
The only question now is how many more women will now come forward.
