Laura Bassett Biography, Laura Bassett Wiki
Laura Bassett is the journalist who some say brought down MSNBC host Chris Matthews. Now, she’s telling her story to Inside Edition. She says she is stunned by the blowback she’s gotten. She said people have told her to kill herself, have called her “a whore,” “ugly,” and people have told her “to go away.” Bassett said she doesn’t believe Matthews should be lumped together with Harvey Weinstein and others held accountable as a result of the #MeToo movement, but that his behavior was unacceptable.
Bassett wrote she was prompted to out Matthews after a tense exchange between the ex-Hardball host and Senator Elizabeth Warren over comments she made regarding allegations against Michael Bloomberg after the debate in Charleston on February 25
Bassett first wrote of being made to feel uncomfortable by a prominent television news personality back in 2017. At the time, though, she didn’t name Matthews.
‘Again – Matthews was never my boss. I’m pretty sure that behavior doesn’t rise to the level of illegal sexual harassment,’ Bassett wrote in GQ.
‘But it undermined my ability to do my job well. And after I published a story about it, even though I didn’t name him, dozens of people reached out to say they knew exactly who it was. Many had similar stories.’
Bassett began her onslaught by highlighting the ‘well-documented’ allegations against the host, noting that Matthews has a tendency to make comments about women in demeaning ways.
She specifically references comments Matthews made to Erin Burnett where he allegedly told her on air: ‘You’re a knockout… it’s all right getting bad news from you.’
The columnist also highlights a 2017 Daily Caller article where one of the host’s former producers said that he rated female guests on a numerical scale, naming them the ‘hottest of the week’ like a ‘teenage boy.’
