Matt Lauer Reportedly Getting Yelled At Over Ann Curry

Matt Lauer is reportedly upset that people are yelling at him in public over Ann Curry's ouster from "Today," according to TMZ.

The site reported that sources said Lauer is "miserable" and "freaked out" over things that people have screamed at him in the street, like, "You're a bad guy," and "You got Ann fired. Does that make you happy?"

Now THIS warms the heart on a old winter's eve. lol

Not so "glib" now, are we?

Poor Ann is reduced to being the Mother Teresa of NBC now with her Pass It On hooplah. She is an inspiration to millions around the world according to NBC News. She did make an appearance at Newtown but I don't see much of her anywhere else. All Matt's fault. I wonder what he will feel when Willie Geist gets Mattie's ass ousted.

If Ann played musical beds with Matt then the story would have been different. Someone else from the show did and now she's co-host. As bad as Ann was, she's now become a bigger star because of the Newtown tragedy.I'm glad people are giving it to ML anyway, I never liked him.

Why does he get blamed? To me it was obvious for years that she was not very good, and even more obvious when she occupied one of the anchor spots. She seems like a nice and well meaning woman, but she was just awful as an interviewer and stumbled on words as a newscaster regularly. Was this Matt's fault?

Good morning everyone, good morning OP, good morning charlie, good morning! Good morning!

It's been more than strongly implied that his machinations led to her dismissal from the program. The weatherman (forgot his name) said something on the air about "people being thrown under the bus." Ouch. The normally good-natured weatherman? That's strong stuff that sends a message.

Yes, she really should not have been on the show due to the stated problems, but if she was promised something and he led the rug-pulling, as it seems...

by Own up to it, Matt. You got Ann fired. Shame on you.reply 612/27/2012

Why does getting thrown under the bus mean Matt threw her? Rather the producers did.

Get rid of Lauer. He's the problem at Today and has been for a few years now.

by Own up to it, Matt. You got Ann fired. Shame on you.reply 812/27/2012

I'd like to see them dump Lauer and the obnoxious weather guy.

by Own up to it, Matt. You got Ann fired. Shame on you.reply 912/27/2012

He's the straight, white golden boy, so no problems with the show would ever have been taken to be as a result of him.

However, he overplayed his hand here and the Ann Curry thing has really damaged his career and likability. In that industry, likability is everything and once the frauen turn on you, it's over.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. And I simply love the fact that Ann Curry is coming out of this smelling like roses even though her performance left a lot to be desired. She's a bigger star than ever and he's on his way down.

Who gives a shit? It's a fuckin' TV show. I wish I had time and money to sit around like you people and give one shit about a dumb ass TV show on at the crack of dawn.

Lauer stopped being likeable long ago - about the time he started losing his hair. I think it made him bitter and nasty.

They kept Willard Scott so that gives you an idea of their demographic.

by Own up to it, Matt. You got Ann fired. Shame on you.reply 1312/27/2012

I don't recall ever seeing Curry do the hard-hitting reporting on-the-scene reporting that she was praised for. Was she really good at that? I don't understand why she would have wanted to focus on something like the Today Show if her forte is elsewhere. Or maybe she thought she was more competent than she was at interviewing and newsreading.

He needs to work out hard, then arrange to be photographed semi-nude by the paparazzi, and all will be forgiven.

by Own up to it, Matt. You got Ann fired. Shame on you.reply 1712/27/2012

"Why does he get blamed?"

Because he demanded she get fired as part of his contract negotiations.

Because he was hardly ever there, thus making it hard to build any kind of rapport with Curry.

R11 = Matt Lauer

I actually have been enjoying Willie, Savannah, and Natalie. Even David Gregory was better. I think Matt Lauer may have cooked his own goose - whether he had anything to do with Ann getting to boot or not. His weakness is being magnified in the backlash.

by Own up to it, Matt. You got Ann fired. Shame on you.reply 1912/27/2012

NBC has lots of good choices to replace Matt. They need to fire his ass.

This week without Lauer and Roker has been bliss. Especially Roker.

[quote]I don't recall ever seeing Curry do the hard-hitting reporting on-the-scene reporting that she was praised for. Was she really good at that?

No, she doesn't. Ann Curry flies around the world to do "heartstrings stories," but she was never a hard-hitting reporter. That was a polite fiction pushed by NBC after she was demoted -- "We're letting her get back to what she does best."

Same for Hoda Kotb. She's an outstanding reporter/interviewer but she's stuck sitting there with Mrs. Gifford five days a week. I guess the money is good.

And the booze is better, R23. I just read a biography of Diana Ross and someone in a crowd yelled at her, 'Florence Ballard died for your sins!'.

R22, that's very funndy what NBC said about her exit. Her true forte would be as the TV spokesperson for a starving foreign children foundation.

R24...I have read that bit about Diana before...but what does it have to do with this? Are you comparing Matt Lauer to Diana Ross and Ann Curry to Florence Ballard?

I don't think Ann ever showed up to work drunk or got too fat for her clothing.

I haven't watched the Today Show since the time of Monica Lewinsky's dress. I recall Al seemed like a nice guy, not egotistical. He was often a foil for some mild jokes.

Curry's woe is me schtick after getting dumped was pathetic. Did anyone watch the show were she cried and ignored Matt and Savanna? Such a childish exit.

It was not professional and aimed at her army of dumb women who think she's actually smart. NBC was right to cut her loose.

Savana is the one I feel sorry for. She's a legitimate political reporter, nice, cute and very sharp. But he has been thrown in the middle of a no win situation.

Ann Curry is an industry joke.

With fifteen years of experience as news anchor, she couldn't read two lines off a teleprompter without stumbling.

Much less display a sense of humor or ability to ad lib, which is kind of a basic skill set for the host job.

"Embarrassment to the profession" is a bit harsh, but it applies.

I thought it was VERY strange when Ann was shown 'babysitting' for some mother of multiples (maybe the Duggars?) and she sang a Chinese nursery rhyme to the tune of this old man:

"Me chinese, me no smoke, me make pee pee in your coke..."

Is the reader supposed to feel sorry for him or join the crowd that yells at him?

He lost the female fanbase the moment it was common knowledge that he cheats on his wife with the pretty female co-hosts (and even has a kid with one). It didn't help at all that his wife didn't divorce him and Matt didn't seem to care one way or the other.

I've read about cheating, but not about who he's cheated with. Co-hosts, baby?

I recall reading in some tabloid years ago that his wife went through a difficult period with depression. Her parents came over from the Netherlands to take care of her and the children and were critical of him and his treatment of her. Maybe she doesn't have the wherewithal to cut him loose. Immigration issues or international custody issues with the kids involved.

Actually, now might be a very good time to initiate proceedings.
