No, it's not just them. You'll find that behavior in every status/stratus. Calling it out among the powerful/famous is just the tip of this iceberg.

I'm afraid that is how it is. The downside about this with the rich and famous is that people talk about it in the way as "thrill seeking". At least that's how it feels to me. Earlier this evening a man talked to me in a conversation about the "me too- hype" , literaly, after seeing a show where a comedian had a piece in his show about it. I understood what he meant to say, but as a woman I felt to warn him not to use that term in that way since that is not what it is about and to people it happens to, it ís a nightmare and has nothing to do with any thrill what so ever. Since it seems distant, since it seems just to be about "the rich and famous" it seems to be not from every day life but well, I'm afraid it is more common than we would want to believe it to be.

Posted at the top of the Miscellaneous - Non-Political Forum: "NO religious or political discussion will be tolerated."

Isn't this discussion stepping into that territory? Moderators?

For christ sake, Paul. This thread has been political since October 10!

Did you not notice for the last 9 pages, or are you simply outraged now that I have mentioned something political?

OK everyone -- I'm going back and deleting every post (or parts of posts) on this thread that seem/seems to me to be political -- "political" in the specific sense that it targets a present or former or would-be office holder or says that adherents or backers of one political party are more  complicit here. The rest of the thread, so it seems to me, should stand. (If I missed something, let me know.)

And let that be the END of trying to do this stuff here. I've got better ways to spend my time than cleaning up after the circus parade.

Your posts were removed, too. I “wanted” nothing. But hey, whatever makes you happy. 

And the political forum has been gone for at least a couple of years now. There were four people responsible for that. Two were banned, and one is the owner of this website. But if you want to give me all the credit, hey why not? It’s consistent with your standard operating procedure.

I guess some egos are too large to settle their acrimonious rants privately. And just after the mod. is rightfully asking to keep low-key. You punks.

Now Matt Lauer is gone from NBC. Unexpected, though there was some rumored misconduct with a colleague no longer on the show I read about  before but was unsure of veracity. . . .

Wow! That's a shocking development. He must have owned up to it considering how quick and decisive their action was. 

I saw our President sent out a typical tweet concerning it... :|

Apparently both Variety and the New York Times have been working on stories regarding Matt Lauer.  So this does not appear to be a knee jerk firing.

i'm waiting for Chris Matthews to get his.

Actually, Matthews is probably safe. His only conceivable erotic object is himself.

I don't know... There was a certain someone that gave him a tingling sensation up his leg once.

I met Chris Matthews a long time ago when he was a volunteer in Swaziland when my Dad was Peace Corps director. He was perhaps humbler then. . . .

I met Chris Matthews in Washington when he was a reporter for a San Francisco newspaper.  His wife was a local well known Washington newscaster. That may have inspired him to get into broadcasting.

Chris Matthews is crazy (and getting crazier), but I still think he understands the way politics work (or don't) as well as anybody.

But definitely crazy (and getting crazier). I've never seen anybody talk over people they essentially agree with the way he does. Crazy, and getting crazier.

That was Bobby Kennedy.

Could George Stephanopoulos be next?

Is this kind of speculation of any value? Just asking.
