Matt Lauer's first public statement:
“I have made no public comments on the many false stories from anonymous or biased sources that have been reported about me over these past several months… I remained silent in an attempt to protect my family from further embarrassment and to restore a small degree of the privacy they have lost. But defending my family now requires me to speak up.
“I fully acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC. However I want to make it perfectly clear that any allegations or reports of coercive, aggressive or abusive actions on my part, at any time, are absolutely false.”
Matt Lauer admits he 'acted inappropriately' but says claims of 'abusive actions' are 'absolutely false' https://t.co/GGbGlMT3P9— Fox News (@FoxNews) April 27, 2018
