Harris Faulkner on Matt Lauer: ‘We Work at Fox, Let’s Not Ignore the 800-Pound Gorilla in the Room’

Fox News’ Outnumbered covered the big news about Matt Lauer today, but Harris Faulkner felt it appropriate to bring up “the 800-pound gorilla in the room.”

That, of course, being Fox News’ own house.

Lauer was fired today over allegations of sexual misconduct, becoming the latest media figure to be fired over such allegations (until Garrison Keillor this afternoon).

The co-hosts of Outnumbered covered the news today, but Faulkner took a moment to acknowledge

“We work at Fox, let’s not ignore the 800-pound gorilla in the room. We have been down a road ourselves. And what we know, as we watch this with these other women, incredible bravery for these victims to come forward.”

Faulkner was, of course, referring to the allegations against prominent Fox News faces like Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly that became a huge media story.
