As NBC Rejects Calls for Independent, Outside Investigation, Women’s Group Urges DNC to Cancel Upcoming Presidential Primary Debate on MSNBC
UltraViolet Calls on the DNC to Support Survivors, Pull Debate from MSNBC Unless NBC News Takes Action to Address Culture of Sexual Abuse at the Network
WASHINGTON - Yesterday, a representative for NBCUniversal told The Hollywood Reporter that the network would not conduct a new, outside investigation into Matt Lauer's conduct and the response by the network’s executives.
“Comcast/NBC’s previous investigation into its culture was little more than a sham to provide cover for its executives. That’s why NBC's refusal to conduct a new, outside investigation into the toxic culture that exists across their networks, especially as it relates to silencing survivors, is unacceptable and proof that the network is not interested in holding abusers and their enablers accountable.
