    The Parents Television Council is slamming NBC's Today for airing the first trailer for the movie version of Fifty Shades of Grey during its 8 a.m. hour. ... "We're talking about basically the equivalent of a dime-store trashy romance novel [in the Fifty Shades of Grey book]. Essentially, what Today's doing is they're promoting what people refer to as mommy porn. That's what it boils down to. Today is helping to promote mommy porn. That's a pretty poor judgment on their part in terms of their attitude towards their audience." ... The Parents Television Council is not the only organization...

    During coverage of President's Obama meeting with Pope Francis on Thursday, both NBC's Today and CBS This Morning hoped the papal visit would boost the commander-in-chief's sinking poll numbers. Today co-host Matt Lauer wondered: "The Pope, enormously popular....Is there something in just rubbing elbows with the Pope for President Obama?" [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd observed: "I think that the President, particularly right now where his own approval ratings are not so hot, just being seen with the Pope, particularly in some places where there are a lot...
  • Today Show Skips Why 'Knockout Game' Perp Was Caught; Shot by Concealed-Carry Permit Holder

    NewsBusters ^ | November 26, 2013 | P.J. Gladnick
    The mainstream media has finally gotten around to covering the "knockout game" which has already been reported on Fox News. However, even though they are now beginning to report on it, they still cling to some biases. In the case of the Today Show it was a bias against defending yourself with legal weapons. In their story about the knockout game which included a segment about one of the perpetrators, Marvell Weaver, being caught and sent to prison, they completely skipped the reason why he was apprehended. Of course, to have reported on that reason for his capture would have...

    New Jersey waitress Dayna Morales was expecting a tip after serving a party of four on Wednesday, but instead, she found a hurtful handwritten note. “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and the way you live your life," the note read. Deeply offended, Morales, who is a lesbian, posted the receipt to Facebook, and then sent it to LGBT group Have a Gay Day's Facebook page, where it racked up over 3,000 comments and quickly made its way around the web.

    Soft ratings, a huge budget and "disdain" for her female audience — Q Scores report only 10 percent of women view Couric favorably — have the host's Disney/ABC talk show in jeopardy as a renewal decision nears. One of the TV's priciest daytime experiments soon could be coming to an end. Stations throughout the U.S. are contracted to carry Katie Couric's syndicated talk show through summer 2014, but the decision on whether Katie will score a third season likely will be made this month -- and renewal seems a long shot. In fall 2012, Disney/ABC TV rolled out the red...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    President Obama's Egypt policy—if you can call it that—has been a feckless disaster. He has somehow managed to score the dubious hat trick of alienating former President Mubarak's supporters in the military, the backers of ousted President Morsi, and the millions in the street whose demonstrations led the military to depose him. So what image of President Obama does Today feature this morning in its segment on Egypt? Why, of PBO extending a forceful fist toward a tableful of aides, including Susan Rice and Eric Holder. Such a strong leader, that Obama! View the photo and video here.

    A long time ago in a media world far, far away, Katie Couric was once seen as a competent, likable, down to earth co-host of NBC's "Today Show." She was appealing, smart, and accessible, But success ruined Couric. Over time, she became a Media Diva and a divisive, hysterical left-wing partisan. Whatever your politics, it is impossible to dispute that Couric went Hollywood -- and narcissism is never pretty In the wake of her chilling metamorphosis, Couric has only met failure. But her latest endeavor, a daytime talk show, is making Couric's time at CBS look like the glory days...

    Matt Lauer, host of the "Today" show, may be leaving the show involuntarily according to a report published by Radar Online on Wednesday. Radar reported that a inside source said the writing was on the wall for Lauer, 54, who has often been blamed for the departure of long time co-host turned lead-host, Ann Curry, in June. Since the time Curry was fired from her position, numerous rumors have emerged about Lauer's inability to get along with staff and his need to be surrounded by "yes" men and women. The source said, "His years-long feuds with former co-hosts Katie Couric,...

    The “Today” show apparently felt that Kris Jenner’s breasts were more important than a moment of silence for the Sept. 11 victims. “Today” chose not to cut away yesterday at 8:46 a.m. to mark the beginning of the attacks, choosing instead to continue with Savannah Guthrie’s interview with “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” mom Jenner (pictured) talking about her breast implants and the new season of her E! show.

    At 8:46 AM, in New York City and at the White House in Washington DC, there was a moment of silence to remember when the first plane hit the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. In New York, the NYPD, FDNY, Port Authority Police and the families of the victims were present, while in Washington the President and the First Lady led the moment. The cable networks all carried it, with ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “CBS This Morning” carrying it as well.

    Guess John Harwood was feeling lucky today. CNBC's chief Washington correspondent went on the Today show and boldly proclaimed that not only did Clint Eastwood not accomplish his mission with his RNC speech, but that the speech is almost universally viewed by political professionals as "a big blunder, a big set-back for Mitt Romney." Harwood did not adduce a scintilla of evidence in support of his contention that the speech hurt Romney. And his universe of pundits apparently does not include people like Jonah Goldberg or Mark Steyn. View the video after the jump.

    After broadcasting an audio clip on the “Today” show about George Zimmerman last month that hit the trifecta of being misleading, incendiary and dead-bang wrong, NBC News management took serious action: it fired the producer in charge and issued a statement apologizing for making it appear as if Mr. Zimmerman had made overtly racist statements. The only thing NBC didn’t do was correct the report on the “Today” show. What is it with television news and corrections? When the rest of the journalism world gets something wrong, they generally correct themselves. But network news acts as if an on-air admission...
  • Ratings: Sarah Palin Beats 'The Perky One'

    Tuesday's ratings numbers are in, and "The Rogue" beat "The Perky One." Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin defeated Katie Couric in their heavily hyped ratings duel on the airwaves on Tuesday when Palin co-hosted NBC's "Today" show while Couric was guest-hosting ABC's "Good Morning America." According to Nielsen Fast National Data, "Today" drew 5.497 million viewers while "Good Morning America" had 5.141 million on Tuesday. With Palin co-hosting on Tuesday, "Today" bested "GMA" by 356,000 viewers. That margin was greater, by 8 percent, than the 333,000 viewer advantage "Today" had on Monday, when Palin was not on the show. Palin...

Palin, never one to hold punches, gloried in her dominance over “the ‘perky one.’” “[F]rankly, I’m ecstatic we beat the ‘perky one,’” Palin emailed Zap2it, along with some glowing compliments for the “Today” show staff and cast. Her problem was not with ABC, Palin made clear, just Couric, who was filling in as the host of “Good Morning America.” “I wouldn’t have gone up against ABC’s vacationing Robin Roberts, because she’s such a good egg,” said Palin. “By the way, both Robin...

    NBC has launched an internal probe after running an edited version of the 911 call from George Zimmerman -- the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin -- that made Zimmerman sound racist. "We have launched an internal investigation into the editorial process surrounding this particular story," the network said in a statement to the Washington Post on Monday. NBC's "Today" show ran the edited audio of George Zimmerman's phone call to a police dispatcher in which Zimmerman says: "'This guy looks like he's up to no good … he looks black."

    The first Mama Grizzly reference came in the first minute or two of former AK Gov. Sarah Palin’s stint guest hosting NBC’s Today show. In the opening segment, a very energetic Palin noted New York’s “warm” weather (by comparison to Alaska, where it was 25 degrees this morning, about 20 degrees cooler than NYC), Ann Curry scoffed at the idea that it was warm and that’s when Palin whipped out the Mama Grizzly. Alaskans are just made of sterner stuff than hardened New York network hosts, it seems: Curry was bundled up and visibly reacting to the mild weather. Matt...

    No, this is not an April Fools joke. Sarah Palin will co-host NBC's "Today" show on Tuesday morning, pitting her directly against Katie Couric, who is guest-hosting ABC's "Good Morning America" for the entirety of next week. The direct competition with Couric could have been an enticing factor for Palin. It's her chance to get back at the "gotcha" tactics of Couric from the 2008 election, or the "lamestream" media, or the "elite liberal" media, or whatever she likes to call it these days. Maybe she'll grace us all with new adjectives! And it signals a freak-out mode for NBC,...

In his memoir, "Decision Points," to be released next Tuesday, Bush writes that charges flung at him that he was a racist during the Katrina crisis "was the worst moment of my presidency." In excerpts of an interview of Bush by NBC's "Today" show, the former president was asked about West's comment that "George Bush doesn't care about black people." The accusation arose because many blacks...

Reporter Nina Dos Santos spoke only of "the specter of terror" having reared its head in London, and of "yesterday's arrests."

    “She has pushed a button and unleashed the hounds of hell, and now they’re out there slavering and barking and growling,” McGinniss said. “That’s the same kind of tactic — and I’m not calling her a Nazi — but that’s the same kind of tactic that that the Nazi troopers used in Germany in the ’30s, and I don’t think there’s any place for it in America.”

    Here is video of the mouse/rodent that upstaged President Obama yesterday by scurrying past the podium where he was speaking. The video shows the mouse before Obama came to the podium as it runs out and then back into the bushes. But later it apparently took off again right past the podium as Obama was delivering his remarks. The Today Show crew makes light of the whole thing.
  • Matt Lauer Affiar with Alexis Houston?

    VIDEO HERE Basically, it is common knowledge in media circles that Matt Lauer can't keep his pants on. A friend of mine worked for Reuters and told me the guy is horrible. My guess is that he is heavily addicted to pornography. Just a guess, but I bet I am right. Alexis Houston is the half sister of Whitney Houston. If anyone has ever seen Lauer in action, he is the absolute epitome of media bias. He hates conservatives, Republicans, and anyone else who is not a Democrat. His "interviews" are so biased that they are almost a parody. Lauer's...

    Matt Lauer is the latest celebrity to be accused of cheating on his wife. The "Today" show host and his wife, Annette, have split amid accusations of infidelity in their 12-year marriage, the National Enquirer reports. The couple has reportedly been living apart for over two months since Annette accused her husband of cheating on her during his on-site coverage of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, which occurred between February 9 to 26. Suspicions allegedly arose when Matt not only stood his wife up on Valentine's Day, but also chose to remain in Vancouver for an extended period of time...
  • A Double Dog Dare For The TODAY SHOW

    Hey TODAY SHOW, Listen Up! This is Bo, the best dog typist in the world. No, I don’t play piano like the cat you recently had on your show. Although the word ‘play’ is being generous to what I witnessed. No, I didn’t save my family from a fire like Buddy, the German Shepherd, you just interviewed, but I did save them from themselves. Where’s my fifteen minutes of fame for that? No, I didn’t have cancer, unless you count the time my mother rushed me to the vet because she thought my nipples were generous lumps of carcinoma. Yes,...
  • Obama: The Core of Tea Party Movement are Birthers and People Who Think He's A Socialist

    Sporting his brand new tattoo, Today Show Co-Host Matt Lauer interviewed President Obama on his show this morning. Typical of the president he blame much of the disagreement over his programs on the Media (especially cable and the blogs) and Republicans for not telling the entire truth about the benefits of his plans. The President reserved his harshest passive/aggressive criticism for the American People in the form of the Grass Roots Tea Party movement. While he said many of the people in the Tea Party movement had legitimate concerns, he said over and over at its core the Tea Party...

    There's no worse crime in journalism these days than simply deciding something's a story because Drudge links to it. - NBC's Chuck Todd, March 6, 2010. Oh, really? Well, how about partnering with a Stalinist regime's military robber-barons to boost their currency booty and hide their tortures, mass-murders, and mass-jailings? To wit: In June 2007, Castro's Stalinist regime held a "tourism fair" in Havana to kick off an ambitious plan to boost the Cuban military's tourist booty. By some peculiar coincidence, NBC's "Today Show" decided to broadcast from Havana that very week. Amidst smiling, clapping, dancing tourists, Matt Lauer and...

    So who does the Today Show march out to discuss Harry Reid's racist comments about Obama? Harold Ford and Gwen Ifill who both, of course, found no fault with Reid's comments. Then Chuck Todd, in his infinite wisdom, pointed out that the Dems have to support Reid to get their agenda passed. He also noted the Dems and Reid "owned up" to the comments and apologized so they're hoping the crucial 48 hour period will lapse and we peons will forgive and forget.

    David Gregory, in a report on Sarah Palin on the Today Show, was in a discussion with Meredith Viera and was quick to point out a poll that showed Sarah Palin "wasn't qualified to be vice president." Gregory, of course, didn't note that Palin had more experience than our Obama, our current president. So, if Sarah isn't qualified to be vice-president, where does that leave Obama? More media hype trying to discredit Sarah, who obviouisly is a huge threat to Liberaltown.

    Here is video from the Today Show this morning where the "Balloon Boy" Family was on air. The father, Richard Heene, denied that the whole bizarre episode that unfolded yesterday was a "hoax." Meredith Viera asked him to clarify why son, Falcon, said hid in the attack because "we did this for a show." The father essentially said his son was "confused," and shortly after he gave that answer, the boy got sick to his stomach on camera. When asked directly if this was a "hoax," Richard Heene acted indignant and said he was tired of hearing that question. He...
