Its been more than 14 months since Ann Currys unceremonious exit from NBCs Today, and now Matt Lauer is lashing out at the way the situation was handled in the media.~snip~
The way the media treated what happened with Ann Curry was a disappointing learning experience, he told Esquire. I was disappointed by the laziness of the media, the willingness to read a rumor, repeat that rumor, and treat it as a fact.

I can't help but marvel at how the people who make a living pushing rumors on America as if they were facts get all pissy when they think their own happy hour pals have slighted them.

(Don't Mex with Texas)
Just what network was it that edited a 911 call to start a rumor about a “racist”?

(Socialism does not eliminate poverty, it guarantees it.)
Matt Lauer is a very industrious commie propagandist. He is
appalled that his comrades don't work as hard as he does.

Never heard of them. Is this something to do with the National Enquirer?

I never watch that show, and I couldn’t care less about any of its talking heads.

(Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness. And then what do you have? Bupkis.)
Why is he in the least surprised “by the laziness of the media, the willingness to read a rumor, repeat that rumor, and treat it as a fact.
His network, NBC, has been promoting the global warming lie since the 90’s.
They've supported anything that Obama says since 2008.
Pretty much all they've got is non-facts. They’d probably be out of business if they ever decided to report on the news.
“Who is Matt Lauer?”
Someone that repeats rumors then bitches others do the same.

The National Barack Channel, also known as the communications arm of the Obama Administration.

I think they used to work for The Onion until Herbert Kornfeld became more popular...

(Welcome to Gaymerica.)
The critics panned that movie, but I liked it for what it was. And, it's the first time I was ever able to stomach Matt Lauer.
(Um, but not the way Will Ferrell was stomached...)
Where the f' was he complaining about laziness of the media before the election of 2008?
Edward R. Murrow is spinning in his grave.

(keep an open mind and someone will fill it full of something for you)
The GAY MAFIA at NBC News absolutely hated her, and bullied her mercilessly, since she didn’t bow down to them.
THOU SHALT NOT P**s OFF THE QUEERS in today’s gay-run Mainsteam media world.

Wait a minute, isn’t that exactly what he and his cohorts in the lamestream media do for a living?

Ann Curry: fiftyish newsreader who, after Katie Couric’s last day, moved to the main set dressed up like a French whore in a vain attempt to snare the cohost job. Has spent the last decade moaning about it. Apparently this is of interest to those who watch commercial-saturated morning shows and who buy People Magazine.

There, fixed it.

("We have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!" (HRC))
Ann Curry was the leftist lie spewing early morning Asian eye candy until she got a boyfriend, got knocked up and hit 40. At that point she was no use to reality media and she was placed under a bus and ground into Kim Chee paste by her "dear friends"
LOL - and she's surprised it happened to her - dingdongdingdongdingdong
