MSNBC's Chris Matthews was reprimanded over comments about woman in 1999

Another MSNBC star is accused of sexual harassment — and this one may have involved a lot of hush money

The Daily Caller first reported on Saturday, citing two unnamed sources familiar with the situation, that Matthews paid the "Hardball" assistant producer $40,000 as a settlement after she made the allegation.

A day after it was revealed that NBC paid money to a female staffer in 1999 who accused MSNBC's Chris Matthews of sexual harassment, the network kept mum Sunday about whether there were other women who had accused the long-time host of inappropriate behavior.

Now, one of his MSNBC colleagues is under the microscope: Chris Matthews.

In 1999, the employee told CNBC executives that Matthews made inappropriate jokes and comments about her in front of others, a MSNBC spokesperson said in an email.

NDA to take on opposition in Parliament over its attack on Modi
Kharge was reacting to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal for positive and innovative arguments in the House. He also added that this parliament session should be held with a positive approach to move the country forward.

Executives fully looked into the matter and dealt with it right away, the spokeswoman added.

The incident was reviewed and Matthews was formally reprimanded for comments that were deemed inappropriate and juvenile, based on discussions with individuals involved in the matter.

The Daily Caller also reported that a spokesperson for the news network said the woman's payment was far less than $40,000.

When contacted by the News, the MSNBC spokeswoman declined to elaborate on the separation-linked payment.

Forbes magazine estimated Mr Sherman's personal net worth at $3.2bn (£2.4bn), making him the 15th richest Canadian. Sherman's wife, Honey, was a member of the board of the Baycrest Foundation and the York University Foundation.

Representatives for Matthews, 72, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. While Matthews has continued to host the investigative talk show, Hardball, for the last 20 years with the addition of 2002's "Chris Matthews Show", as well as authored numerous books and autobiographies.

Matthews is the latest media personality to be accused of sexual misconduct over the past several months.

This is a tumultuous time for his corporate home, who has already cut ties with Morning Joe analyst Mark Halperin in October following multiple accusations of sexual harassment and assault from a dozen women, and recently fired Today host Matt Lauer over similar claims. Lauer has said he is "truly sorry" but said some of what was being said about him was untrue or mischaracterized.
