Matt Lauer Releases Statment, Apologizes After Firing for Sexual Misconduct: ‘I Am Truly Sorry’

Former “Today” anchor Matt Lauer on Thursday morning released a statement acknowledging his wrongdoings with women over the years and apologized — but also said some of the charges against him were untrue.  “There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry,” he said in a statement read on the NBC morning show Thursday by his former colleague Savannah Guthrie . Lauer, however, disputed some of the claims that have been raised since his sudden termination was announced on Wednesday.
