NBC: Billy Bush Has Been Suspended Indefinitely
In a hypocritical CYA move by NBC Billy Bush has been indefinitely suspended.
Today executive producer Noah Oppenheim said in a memo that “there is simply no excuse for Billy’s language and behaviour on that tape”.
Bush, who hosts the third hour of the Today show, has been suspended “pending further review of the matter,” Mr Oppenheim said.
NBC announced its decision two days after the videotape from the Access Hollywood archives surfaced.
Bush, 44, was a host for that show in 2005, and he was taped in a hot-mic discussion with Mr Trump when the future presidential nominee was on a Hollywood set to make an appearance on the soap opera Days of Our Lives. More
