I saw this today also. Actually the Today Show made fun of themselves this morning by showing the footage again. They had just finished an interview with the mother of 17 kids and Al Roucker came on and Couric was standing there with him with the weather map in the background. Katie was acting like the weatherman and said she had not done that before and then they showed the video in the background of the canoe with the 2 men walking by and everyone laughed. It was pretty funny.
What was their excuse? Did they say she was just protecting her $400 shoes? I think not.
