NBC Made Payment To Staffer After Sexual Harassment Claim Against Chris Matthews

Outtake footage obtained by the website The Cut showed Matthews in an Iowa fire station, asking if he could "have some of the queen's waters". "Precious waters", according to the outtake footage.

"This was a awful comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines", Matthews told The Cut. "I realize that's no excuse".

Among them, longtime "Today" star Matt Lauer was sacked for sexual misconduct; NBC News fired Senior Vice President Matt Zimmerman after he had "engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman" at the network; and the MSNBC fired "Morning Joe" regular Mark Halperin for sexual misconduct and suspended contributors Glenn Thrush and Harold Ford Jr., who had also been accused of inappropriate behavior with women.

The release of the footage comes as the nation reckons with sexual assault and harassment, with near-daily revelations about men falling from positions of power in entertainment, business, the media and politics. "I deeply regret it and I'm sorry", he said.

In a meeting last fall, the president apparently said that a female intelligence expert should be assisting the its negotiations with North Korea purely because of her Korean heritage, NBC News reported. A rep from the network disputed that figure claiming the former employee was paid much less as part of a severance agreement, but didn't specify the amount.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews really stepped in it this time. The network said his comments were inappropriate but not meant to be taken as propositions.

He also said, in 2015 upon hearing a rumor that she might quit the race, "when Hillary Clinton quits this election, we'll shut down the show".
