She's awful. Very shrill. I had to turn NBC off and go with CBS.
She hasn't fucked me yet so her tenure around here is iffy.
Matt "Put out or get out" Lauer
Um, I think R3 has a short memory (among *other* things)
I agree with OP. She is calm, measured.... I can't watch ABC or CNN right now. She's killing it... imagine if it were friggen Ann Curry on the air right now?
I agree, Savannah is very good on the fly. Give her something of substance and she lays it out like no one else. She knows her stuff. She is a U of A graduate and a law graduate of Georgetown.
She's rocking this story and all its crazy developments. I haven't seen anybody do such a good job recently other than Brian Williams.
She's seamlessly traffic-managing half a dozen reporters, relaying bulletins from her iPhone, giving detailed context.
It's not something you can train for, and she's doing great.
I shudder to think about the word salad Ann Curry would have been serving up.
Yeah, I have to say, I'm not a fan of her as a co-host. Bland, boring and just plain flat. But she's doing very well on this story. She's a considerably better anchor than she is a host.
Have they gotten a statement from Dr. Amy Bishop yet?
I wish the incessant, loser Today Show troll would blow up.
ENOUGH with the non-stop thread postings on your white trash morning shows troll.
What R5 said. I'm so glad someone created this thread, because it's exactly what I was thinking. Poor Matt is stuck in Wets, TX while Savannah single-handed juggles all the field reporters, guests, interviews, etc. She's calm, measured, professional, and in control. No histrionics, and good questioning.
And she no Anne Curry (thank god).
Mara Schiavocampo did an excellent job at anchoring the breaking news on MSNBC for the last two nights. I've never heard of her before, but she was very fluid in her reporting and not at all shrill.
Do any of you obese vaginad people ever actually work or do anything other than sit your asses in your sad, dirty homes and watch television?
Do they have her on this so she can become America's sweetheart?
I wonder if Matt is upset he's at the shit factory...
Savannah is hated by millions. She's a blonde ice queen, and will forever be so.
Katie Couric can do better without breaking a sweat.
R14, you just know Matt is standing around making up new swear words.
The douchbag probably headed for Texas thinking he would work it for all it was worth. The joke's on him.
How odd all this rating of the morning infotaiment hosts. What is this all about?
Mika on Morning Joe was practically in hysterics this morning, talking a mile a minute and constantly repeating herself. "This is unprecedented....never before in history...under seige...how do you explain this to the children..." I was hoping Willie would slap her.
Sorry I missed Savannah.
Funny some of you should mention "shrill", because that is exactly the word I thought of when I was in the other room and I was wondering who was shreaking on CNN behind the footage - it was Erin Burnett.
She and Chris Cuomo together are a disaster; why that Zucker moron thought they would make a great morning team reveals his incompetence.
I loved that Matt is in Texas and no one cares about that story anymore.
R19, what's she talking about. Do people actually let small children watch the news when it involves events like these?
r22, Mika said parents were going to have to explain to children why they had to stay in the house.
Are parents so lacking in imagination that they can't come up with something that will satisfy small children?
All they have to say is the police are looking for a bad man and they want us to stay home today.
Savannah's been anchoring for seven hours now.
She is owning it.
All of that and she still has time to post about her self on Datalounge!
Yeah, R26, I guess she was tweeting praise for herself under all these dozens of aliases too:
I think Savannah is competent, but really don't care for her in the Today anchor chair. I can quite figure that one out.
She's a tranny looking bitch and is about as exciting as watching mud dry.
Before Savannah was moved up to the big chair, she was co-anchor of The Daily Rundown on MSNBC. After Gabby Giffords was shot, they had her, as a local girl, reporting on the scene and she was great. I figure that's what got the attention of Today.
She was ghastly. While the other networks were on the scene and broadcasting from Watertown, she was parked in the studio hogging up the screen with a smarmy-looking grin. Horrible. And bad news coverage. And then when they finally cut to a camera outside, it was the insufferable Lester Holt, who has completed his transformation from African American man to slightly-mocha-small-lipped-little-nosed aged preppy. I'll bet he's even wearing blue contacts now.
NBC daytime news is absolutely trashed. Unserious, brittle, insubstantial fucktwats.
R19, ITA. I was really stressed this morning at home over a home issue and an impending work issue. That woman almost put me into orbit. I finally had to mute the sound. Morning Joe should have blow-ups of Joe and Mika around the table and let the others actually do the show.
