Li'l Katie & Matty (J-Lo) Lauer on Donahue @ 8...Live Thread
MSNBC ^ | Lenin, Marx, Stalin

Posted on 09/18/2002 4:59:32 PM PDT by Fintan

  Li'l Katie Couric & Matty Lauer are appearing on Donahue tonight at 8.

Undoubtedly, the Three Stooges of the Left will stick their feet in their mouths, babble incoherently and drool uncontrollably at every mention of the word "Clinton".

Join in the fun...

Donohue claiming that Ann Coulter doesn't want to answer any questions, and congratulating Katie for "not letting her get it away with it."

Gee, now they're trashing Lauren Bacall. Could she be a closet Republican?

OK. I will check in here. I am not watching anybody who thinks their primary agenda is to trash others.

Somebody has to watch it, or we won't know what they are saying to each other. What a loss that would be!

This is the first time I'm watching Donohue for more than a fleeting moment. Just interested in watching the "love-in."

It is such pathetic suck-up, NBC-promo-arama. They just went to break saying: "Next: how The Today Show wins all the awards and sets the agenda for morning news shows." Barf.

Trashing Lauren Bacall??? She, along with Bogart, were on the McCarthy list of communist sympathizers. Hardly a Republican. I can't bear to watch those 3. Thank you for being a stronger person than I!

It's painful, but I'm listening to it. The last time I tuned in to see what ol' Phil was up to, he was interviewing that sack o' crap Michael Moore. You'd think I'd have learned my lesson!

They said she came on the show with a secret agenda to promote some drug for which she was a paid spokesperson for the manufacturer.

Yes, I know someone has to watch it, but tonight I am not going to take that assignment.

I have had both a water heater and an oven go out, plus I have just spent $300 at the dentist.

I do not need any more depressing stuff.

Oh good grief! It is one big p.r. machine for the Clintons.

Could landPhil's lips be pressing any harder against Kootie's and Mutt's backsides?

Now, they are making Hillary into the poor put-upon victim!

They just showed the famous Lauer interview with Hillary right after the Lewinsky story broke, when she coined the famous phrase "vast right wing conspiracy."

Donahue actually says: "I could never understand the uproar over her using the term vast right wing conspiracy. . . . I actually think she was right!"

In fairness to Lauer, he says: "she said some things that in light of subsequent events she probably regrets having said."

What other expression do you expect, given that she's on a show with ratings in the toilet?

I didn't really read it that way. Believe me, I have no use for either Katie or Matt (see my numerous posts about their shenanigans).

But both of them said something along lines "we'll never know just what she knew when she made the statements she did to Matt." In other words, they were leaving open the possibility that she was flat-out lying to him. Donohue was defending Hillary to the end, and saying she was right in what she said to Matt, but he wasn't.

You know, as much as I detest Donohue, this is always pathetic. His show is such a ratings disaster that he is forced to grovel on his hands and knees before the successful morning duo.

I almost expect him to throw him self on the ground, wrap his arms around their ankles and plead: "save me! Save me Matt & Katie. Come on, whatever you says goes with the bosses. Save me, pl-uh-e-e-e-e-ese!"

My suggestion for MSNBC to boost their ratings in the 8-9 PM slot would be to show "Legends of Bowling" reruns.

And, Katie & Matt are "journalists"???????????????

A caller asked whether there is a political bias to the show.

Katie actually said: "We strive to ask a variety of people tough questions. Our job is to ask really tough questions of everyone and be the devil's advocate. To ask more conservative questions of a liberal guest and vice versa."

Yeah, right.

Or to be polite, a love-in. But it's really only going in one direction. Donohue is desperately trying to suck up to Katie and Matt, while they can sit back and be cool about things. I haven't heard them bending over backwards to praise him.

Well, I've now seen all of two mins of this show, and I was delighted to have Matt, Katie, and Phil enlighten me that bias and viewpoint, is merely relevant......it depends upon one's perception...dontcha know. On a separate note, the director has selected a very strange(from above) camera angle which, in the two-shot of the NBC morning bubble-heads, makes them appear to be sitting in a hole....

Oh my Lord, he is now trying to praise Matt for helping Katie through the loss of her husband. Matt is decently declining credit, and Katie too cut Donohue off, saying many other people have gone through this and she, being financially well off, etc., had it easier than many others.

There is absolutely NOTHING that Donohue won't do to suck up to these people. Really, folks, if you're not watching this, you are missing what will go down in the history of TV as one of the most bathetic performances ever.

Bathetic: maudlin, mawkish, mushy, romantic, schmaltzy, slushy, soppy. Excessively or insincerely emotional

I hope everyone who watched heard donnyhue say ....'' I don't want to use the word HERO, but....'' he was referring to the way they handled the coverage of the attack on the world trade center. Heroic? They were lost souls and Lauer had the nerve to write a little note to the perkie one right after the second tower was hit......terrorism... Matt was probably thinking he was going to mess his pants

You guys tempted me to flip by and watch a second or two...poor Katie, she doesn't like being used by Phil...a ploy for ratings. But just think how gloomy she will be when his numbers don't go up for her.

(I'm actually watching Braveheart on USA.)
