[See NewsBusters for more.] HBO anchor John Oliver may be your standard entertainment liberal, but even he can see the awfulness in the way ex-Today host Matt Lauer treated women. In a segment deriding psychics as low rent scam artists, the Last Week Tonight host mocked Lauer as “sophisticated Manhattan sex monster. After playing a clip of Lauer talking about how the alleged revelations from the medium brought him to tears, Oliver offered this zinger: “It is weird to envision a scenario in which something happened at the Today show offices, and then Matt Lauer was the one who went home and cried.”
