Report: Matt Lauer a public target
'Today' co-host said to be 'miserable' over Ann Curry fan tirades
One of the most popular: "You got Ann fired. Does that make you happy?"
Lauer went from good guy to bad overnight in June, after TMZ reported he had maneuvered to oust Ann Curry as his co-host as part of his last contract negotiation. (NBC execs have publicly denied any connection between Lauer and what they term Curry's "reassignment" to reporter for "NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams" and other NBC news programs. Curry was replaced by Savannah Guthrie on the "Today" show.)
The TMZ report quotes unnamed NBC sources saying the public harassment is "driving (Lauer) crazy, he's so unhappy." The report adds: “Matt is telling people at NBC there have also been lots of sarcastic comments about his $25 million salary."
Do you think Matt is being unfairly abused, or is this karma?
"Today" airs weekdays at 7 a.m. ET/PT on NBC.
SHAKE IT OFF MATT! These haters are moveing to another channel(SO THEY SAY,LOL)BUT as it would be they sure know an awful lot for dippy doos that "NEVER" watch??LOL!!ROCK ON MATT! Ignore the haters! Everyone else does!
For $25 million a year, so what, who cares if Matt is unhappy. Rich people make me tired sometimes. I get unhappy because the working poor cannot afford new tires for their cars, the dentist, FOOD!!!
It's Karma!!!!! Matt thinks he all that and more and not worth all the millions he gets. NO ONE is worth that much money!!!!!
Don't like Matt, switched to GMA long ago. Love GMA and group they have on that show.
Ann was a nice lady and I think she took the hit.....well they should give Matt the hook too.
Old and tired show needs to change format and folks. Get a new weather man too.
i watch gma in the mornings. it's light fare , i get some news and i like the hosts. just like someone else said on here...they all get along.i never cared for george in the past but he actually does pretty well on gma and adds to the show in a sometimes serious way and sometimes lightly. matt sounds like he has some sand in his gina and is getitng karma for being a 25 million dollar backstabber.i've worked with strokes of his ilk before in the past.f- lauer.time to sell your benzos and mansions now before you get s-canned matt.
Ann always had the same sorrowful (fake) look on her face whenever their was a sad story being reported or whenever she was interviewing someone that was upset or had a sad story to tell. I never understood why they gave her the cohosting job. Natalie Morales would have been a must better fit.
Well, Matt took care of #1 .... Matt.
By why should I care anymore. 1st Ann and then Jena, I switched to GMA a while ago
