NBC confirms it paid a former employee who accused Chris Matthews of sexual harassment in 1999
Matthews was reprimanded for his inappropriate jokes and comments at a female assistant producer, NBC confirmed after the conservative website The Daily Caller reported the story. The Daily Caller said NBC paid $40,000 as part of a separation-related settlement — a figure that an MSNBC spokesman disputed.
