Katie’s Goodbye: E-Mailer Reactions

> “This morning was the first time I’ve ever shed tears on a longtime news anchor’s final show.”

> “Katie’s goodbye was all about HER. Yes, it was her day, but this was way over the top and self-congratulatory to the extreme.”

> “NBC really did a great job with the goodbye, covering every single moment of Katie’s Today career. I have enjoyed the coverage thus far, and I am taping it.”

> “I will never have to eat another cookie or anything sweet after the disgustingly sugary tribute. Forget hard news from Katie today-just self love. If she had any class or humility she would just have taken 5 minutes at the end to say thanks and had her party off camera.”

> “8:34 a.m. Katie: ‘We’ll be right back with this celebration of moi, ad nauseum.’”

> “The show is ALL Katie but well produced and a fun look back at the history of the Today Show.”

> “What kind of self-absorbed, delusional programming is this?! This ‘special’ is an insult to her subjects: real people who have faced real obstacles, and are being used as circus animals in the three-ring spectacle that is her departure.”
