Chris Matthews was accused of sexual harassment back in 1999. In the age of #MeToo, this means he must lose his job in current year and be forever remembered as a sex pervert.
It looks as if MSNBC host Chris Matthews has been ensnared in #MeToo. He along with his employer was forced to pay a woman who complained that he was sexually harassing her.
An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment.
Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package.
The woman complained to CNBC executives about Matthews making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company of others.
The MSNBC spokesman said that they thoroughly reviewed the situation at the time and that Matthews received a formal reprimand. Based on people who were involved in the matter, the network concluded that the comments were inappropriate and juvenile but were not intended to be taken as propositions.
Does Matthews actually think that making inappropriate comments and jokes is acceptable in the modern workplace? It doesn’t matter if this happened back in 1999. It could have happened in 1899 and it would still be a problem.
The fact that the company and Matthews had to pay this woman is definitive proof that Matthews needs to be fired from his job. It shows that even the company knew that Matthews had been engaging in bad behavior.
In the age of #MeToo, women have been fully empowered to destroy any man’s career at will. All they have to do is allege wrongdoing. Matthews as someone who has actively promoted feminism throughout his media career should be fully supportive of #MeToo even if it costs him his own job.
Only through full female empowerment can we ever hope to end sexual harassment in the workplace. Matthews as a privileged White male should understand this.
Now that this information is public, MSNBC must fire Matthews immediately. They have no choice in the matter. Not doing so would show MSNBC’s management to be sexist and against women. I personally hope that they replace Matthews with a Black tranny.
