BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Protesters and activists from UltraViolet stormed the NBC headquarters in New York City demanding Comcast and NBC executives take action and responsibility for allegations made in Ronan Farrow’s book “Catch and Kill”. They specifically took issue to NBC over their handling of Matt Lauer and Harvey Weinstein allegations. Democratic presidential candidates Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren have called on the Democratic National Committee to hold NBC accountable for its “toxic culture” ahead of MSNBC’s Democratic debate.
NBC Jeff Zucker pulled no punches about the ongoing controversy in a tweet. “In regards to the protesters from Ultra Violet,” Zucker began. “They are nothing more than a bunch of women that are frustrated because they can’t either ‘get’ or ‘keep’ a boyfriend. Secondly, the only reason why Cory Booker and Kamala Harris jumped on the bandwagon, is because both of them are trying to make some noise before they drop out of the race in the near future. Plus, these two numbskulls has also prompted me to trash their recent job applications as contributors on MSNBC. As far as Warren and Sanders, they are now in the top three. However, if they don’t give me in writing within the next few hours that they will refrain from condemning this network on how we deal with sex abuse, I will make sure that our moderators at the debate tonight gives them all the tough questions, and they give Biden the simplest question we can come up with, even though we’re sure he’s answers will be consistently confusing reflecting his usual level of idiocy.”
