NBC paid severance to producer who accused Chris Matthews of sexual harassment

Report NBC paid off producer who accused Chris Matthews of sexual harassment

According to internal sources, the network paid $40,000 to an assistant producer working on Matthews' nightly political talk show, Hardball with Chris Mathews, although an NBC spokesperson later denied this and said she was paid a considerably smaller severance package instead.

"In 1999 this matter was thoroughly reviewed and dealt with".

An MSNBC spokesman told The Daily Caller that Matthews had been slapped with a formal reprimand at the time the woman made her complaint. The sources say the company settled with the woman for $40,000. The show was on CNBC before it was on MSNBC.

The woman complained to executives that Matthews, now 71, had made inappropriate comments to her and made inappropriate jokes about her to others. Based on people with knowledge of the matter, the network concluded "the comments were inappropriate and juvenile but were not meant to be taken as propositions", The Daily Caller reported.

NBC addressed the report by confirming that there was a separation-related compensation involved when the woman left the network.

MSNBC declined to comment on whether there are other sexual harassment claims in Matthews' history at the company. Matthews has hosted his famed show "Hardball" since 1997.

The complainant reportedly went on to work in a number of "high-profile" media roles after leaving the network.

The news about old accusations against Matthews come in as the country continues to reel from sexual misconduct scandals that have impacted everything from the entertainment and media businesses to government.
