What has this poor guy done to deserve all the bad karma?
The latest in a string of bad luck: He's in Waco this morning as drama unfolds in Boston. Talk about being out-of-position!
Dude cannot catch a break.

at $25M per year, I'd say he's already caught many breaks.

Your news star glows only so long. Ann Curry has had a bigger impact than NBC anticipated.
What a business!!

Staff comes to Matt's aid
Staff comes to Matt's defense
Today's Hollywood Reporter (Friday 4/26/13)
The co-host of the fourth hour of the NBC morning show got many 'Today' cast and crew to sign a letter of support, but Lauer nixed the idea of publishing it in a full page advertisement.
Under siege in the press, Matt Lauer received a vote of confidence from inside the walls of Studio 1A.
Katie Lee Gifford told the New York Daily News that she rallied Today show staffers and stars to sign a letter of support for the beleaguered long-time co-anchor, a strike back against the devastating volley of bad publicity Lauer has endured over the last year.
"We all wanted to say something to Matt and nobody wanted to put him in a position that would make him uncomfortable," Gifford told the newspaper. "So unbeknownst to anyone higher up at NBC, I just started this thing."
Gifford had staffers and co-stars sign the letter, with notes indicating how long they'd worked alongside Lauer.
"We the people of the Today' show who work side by side, day by day, year in and year out with Matt Lauer are tired of unfounded and unrelenting stories by faceless characters regarding his character and reputation," the letter read. "No one has coerced us to sign this. With our signatures we stand in support of our colleague and friend."

Oh please, what the hell is a signed piece of paper going to do for a guy that has a 25M contract? Take it like a man Lauer! The people have spoken and it appears that most think he had something to do with Ann not being there anymore as evidenced in the takeover of GMA in the ratings. I'm sure the suits can obviously see this, but at this point it's a done deal.
(however, I would be willing to add my signature to a piece of paper that says sign if you'd like to see Kathie Lee kicked out the front door!)

total grandstand move by the runaway ego of Kathie Lee.
I don't believe for a second that this was about "supporting" anyone.... this was about her publicly kissing up to Lauer and her bosses (and of course letting everyone know what a great person she is to do so).

and it wouldn't surprise me at all if this is her way of angling to get Guthrie's job.

Savannah Guthrie gave Matt a blowjob,(come on now, you all know about the affair BEFORE she became anchor, and that what your thinking happen),so people that is why I sitting here beside Little Matty(wonder if that Savannah pet name for Matt). If Katie Lee, want to replace Savannah, as anchor, she will have to do the same, at least, that my halfpence opinion.

Sorry about that old editor, and Savannah it my mistake, it was Natalie Morales.,that Matt had the affair with. SAVANNAH GUTHRIE according to the National ENQUIRER,had an affair with another married man. At least Savannah, has the good sense to stay out of Matt bed!
