I don't like what she said, but I know of people who think like her it's very "old school" way of thinking.

 

Agreed. That's the same way I felt when Tippi Hedren spoke out a few weeks ago.

Angela Lansbury was old when I was 8. I just don't have time for people playing the cancelled game over this ancient woman on Twitter. She's old, she has somewhat antiquated views on sexuality from a very different time, I disagree with her but I'm not going to burn her at the stake. We have bigger fish to fry.

It's a bit embarrassing to see a BBC journalist using generic social media buzzwords. I doubt Angela Lansbury cares whether anyone "cancels" her or not. It's just silly and self-absorbed. I have had to put up with my older relatives having the most horrible views and I don't rush to social media to make a meal of it.

Angela Landsbury's mentality is in a time-warp.

 

That is, without a doubt, the case. She's coming at this with an outdated, ancient mentality. I can understand why she's saying these things.

 

What the journalist said is not the problem here. Unfortunately, the problem is that this kind of opinion is what many have been fighting against and, once more, it is validated. Just because it's Lansbury and she's old doesn't mean it should be shrugged off. It shows, once more, how much work needs to be done.

I don't think anyone is shrugging it off. I just don't expect a lot from a 92-year old and I thought it was a bit odd that the first thing someone who is in a position to influence debate would do is run on social media and type "canceled" like their tumblr favorite forgot the right words in the right order for lgbtqia.

Not to veer off the subject too much, but she was only 59 when she started on MSW. She always seemed way older than that. 😨

Is it wrong for me to say that I am unsurprised by the Matt Lauer proceedings?

He has often struck me as a person wedded to his own sense of personal power, willing to wield that sense of power to manipulate others, particular those with less clout than he had.

I don't think so. ML has came off as arrogant and above everyone since he started on Today. it may add thought to why some of his female co hosts left or were pushed out...because maybe, MAYBE they didn't accept his advances. well now his career is shot. serves him right IMPO.

The women as usual cleaning up the mess for the network...

 

This is a shock to nobody and has been going on for decades. The guy is a lech and a a$$hole.

You only have to ask what Ann Curry is doing these days as NBC News's former 'special national/international correspondent.' Her career was not just sidelined but outright extinguished by the old boys club at NBC News.

FINALLY! FINALLY!! FINALLY!!!

 

20 years of this piece of [!@#$%^&*] ruining NBC from top to bottom, a smug, sour old bag of piss. I loathe watching anything involving him and now I never have to see his endlessly sanctimonious puss ever again on my screen.

 

This is good and right and just and everything we have deserved in our painful lives. 

 

FINALLY!!!!!

How do you really feel, Carl? 😉😂 Seriously, I agree with all of your observations. I've always found him smug, arrogant and egotistical...never more so than during the Ann Curry debacle. I bet she's shedding no tears right now.
