(This is not a statement of fact. It is either opinion or satire; or both)
They might be on to something here. Today show “faces” have been committing suicide with their careers there for decades, Pauly, Gumbell who?
People could go there and commit suicide on live TV for 3 hours. This could be HUGE! The new format could bring back the Today Show from the brink. It would open up a perverse generation of new sponsors to the show.
Remember a few years ago a guy flew small plane into IRS building in TX? They initially tried to infer he was some “right winger”, but oh darn, he was a democrat.

And yet the guy in Egypt who started the Arab Spring by setting himself on fire is some sort of danged hero.
Funny but every time I surf tv and inadvertently stop on “Today” I also want to slit my wrists.

Well, at least he wasn’t holding a gun to his head and holding a sign that read, “You’re Next Lauer.”
