Secret office button to lock the door

I just heard about this in the Matt Lauer case.

The studio is saying they added it to all their big stars' offices to give them a safe room in case an attacker showed up.  Which is plausible - but only if they can show the same device installed in someone else's office.

An office with a locked door is not a 'safe room'.

I can't find any reference to this safe room or its relevance in the case, can you explain what the relevance is?

Supposedly there's now 8 women that say Lauer raped them, and turns out his wife moved out years ago, but they had an agreement that she wouldn't tell anyone about it.

CNN says that women are to blame for the scandals against (non-republican) male victims of sexual harassment allegations.

Some staff member said oh he has a bag of sex toys in his office, he must be a predator.

Then his psychotherapist said oh Matt asked me for ideas to fix his sexless marriage so I bought him a sack of sex toys and delivered them to his office and by the way this is not violating his medical privacy because he isn't really my client just a friend I give psychotherapy advice to as a professional.

If you're a doctor and you give bad medical advice to your friends you can still be held for malpractice. Doctor patient confidentiality also applies, whether you are paid or not.

This is insane that a therapist is revealing this sort of stuff without permission.

> A few things about that button on Matt Lauer’s desk:

> Lauer, fired on Wednesday amid allegations of sexual misconduct, didn’t install the button that enabled him to lock his office door automatically from his desk, it turns out.

That's a piss poor retraction. It's not labelled a retraction and is phrased in an obfuscational way.

They act like the have new information about the button.

And the new information is that it didn't exist and the storey was a fake news lie.

But they phrase it in such a way they hope the readers don't notice they are withdrawing their fake news claim from the day before.

Lauer was a rapist who used the button to trap women, according to victim. Interestingly it seems like the entire list of things he did to various women is just this one complaint, except for the staff member that saw a bag of dildos which has now become a story he would pass them out to employees and tell them what they should do with them, and one that the staff including him would play Snog Marry Avoid (oh the horror).

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/29/business/media/nbc-matt-lauer.html

The woman who described the encounter in 2001 with Mr. Lauer in his office told The Times that the anchor had made inappropriate comments to her shortly after she started as a “Today” producer in the late 1990s.

While traveling with Mr. Lauer for a story, she said, he asked her inappropriate questions over dinner, like whether she had ever cheated on her husband. On the way to the airport, she said, Mr. Lauer sat uncomfortably close to her in the car; she recalled that when she moved away, he said, “You’re no fun.”

In 2001, the woman said, Mr. Lauer, who is married, asked her to his office to discuss a story during a workday. When she sat down, she said, he locked the door, which he could do by pressing a button while sitting at his desk. (People who worked at NBC said the button was a regular security measure installed for high-profile employees.)

The woman said Mr. Lauer asked her to unbutton her blouse, which she did. She said the anchor then stepped out from behind his desk, pulled down her pants, bent her over a chair and had intercourse with her. At some point, she said, she passed out with her pants pulled halfway down. She woke up on the floor of his office, and Mr. Lauer had his assistant take her to a nurse.

The woman told The Times that Mr. Lauer never made an advance toward her again and never mentioned what occurred in his office. She said she did not report the episode to NBC at the time because she believed she should have done more to stop Mr. Lauer. She left the network about a year later.

This story is so weird. How do you pass out if you didn't drink or take drug?

Did he release some kind of sleeping gas from a secret device?

We need to get this info from Lauer. I can make lot of money selling this gas.

In order to test out this gas, I need to test it out on Lauer's family.

If you ASK a woman to unbutton her blouse...

...and she does so

What kind of message does this convey?

She is clearly lying.

She would have been bent over the desk, not a chair.

None of her story makes any sense.

The mention of the nurse means there was a witness - if she is still alive and locatable.

Mi'lud, the defence contests that it is physically impossible to forcibly rape an unwilling victim over the chair (exhibit 'A' Mi'lud). You can clearly see that for intercourse to have taken in the chair would have required willing cooperation.

Yeah. I'm old and have to share my residence with Hillary forever. Don't you try to tell me to repeat what I said years ago on TV to the exact words. It isn't exactly fun marrying to Hillary, you know! Even now I have to sneak around behind Hillary back. I said if she can sleep with any bimbo she wants, why can't I? Well, she hit me with her latest book.
