    Today breathlessly made the teacher walkout in Oklahoma and other states its top story this morning, touting the wildfire as thousands are rising up and walking out. The reporter on the ground in Oklahoma claimed its turning out to be more than a protest, but a movement, and host Hoda Kotb billed it as a powerful movement thats sweeping the country. A clip showed a student claiming that the walkout is all for us. Except its not. Its really about teachers demanding higher salaries, though some window dressing has been added about increasing overall school funding. One inconvenient fact that...

    Appearing on Tuesday's NBC Today, advertising executive Donny Deutsch and psychotherapist Robi Ludwig both agreed that the American people should not stop being "shocked" by political sex scandals. Deutsch declared: "...we have to stop being shocked and amazed....when men who are conquerors by nature also chase women....we as a society have got to become a little more anesthetized to this." Moments later, as Duetsch one again proclaimed, "Let's stop being shocked at this stuff!," Ludwig blamed American moral values for the attention the scandal received: "We're a very puritanical country and so we're a little bit sexually repressed. So on...

    Theyre not gonna take it! Both Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb are taking off from their TODAY show post this month, and neither have plans to return, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

TODAY producers are panicking as the inexperienced Jenna Bush Hager and guest cohosts handle the 10 am eastern fourth hour, and have begged the two women to come back but neither...

    Donald Trump isnt the only one who thinks Bill Clinton's a sex attacker a Today show fan got busted when he took off his sweater to reveal a T-shirt adorned with a picture of the former president and the word RAPE under it, police sources said. The suspect, Mark Gallagher, 23, was charged with criminal trespass in the Thursday morning incident.

    The batch of emails released by Wikileaks on October 7 includes one in which Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon explained that Clinton would supportclosing the gun show loophole by executive order.

    The poor dears get very upset when someone eschews the BS and speaks plain truth. Im not going to pretend Ive been following the Ryan Lochte story. Nothing about the Olympics really interests me, including this. But it does interest me when people who merely tell the truth about things find themselves taking heat for doing so - and that is now happening to NBCs Al Roker because he went so far as to express his indignation over Lochtes false story of what happened to him in Brazil. According to a report out today, Today Show staffers are beside themselves,...

    The crew on NBC's Today Show had a rather unpleasant revelation this morning. Despite the fact that Donald Trump supposedly had a bad few weeks in stark contrast to Hillary Clinton, he is still in a virtual tie with her in the polls in the key battleground states of Ohio and Pennsylvania. Watch them as they seem to awake from the insistent media narrative that Trump is in a really bad slump.

    A pleasant and caring man, one who reveled in his mostly modest playing career in the big leagues, his receded -- not receding -- hairline and, it seemed, all facets and phases of his decades on the planet, has left us behind, behind and smiling. Joe Garagiola, a most entertaining, engaging and convivial sort, has died, bringing to an end a full, rich life and leaving the game without one its most enduring personalities, an energetic crusader and folksy humorist.

    The Today Show had body language expert Janine Driver on as a guest to analyze the body language of presidentical candidates Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and Marco Rubio. It was Driver's analyses of the body language of Hillary and Trump that caused some really fascinating reactions from host Natalie Morales who was clearly uncomfortable with the analyses. So let us now enter Natalie's Discomfort Zone:

    Former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska bristled during a Monday interview on NBC's "Today" show when she was pressed about her provocative comments about her son's arrest and post-traumatic stress disorder. "You guys brought me here to talk about Iowa politics and the caucus tonight — not to talk about my kids," Palin said. "And that was a promise. But as things go in the world of media, you guys don't always keep your promises, evidently." Track Palin, a veteran who is Palin's oldest child, was charged last month in a domestic-violence case "in which his girlfriend said he punched...
  • Sarah Palin exposes Matt Lauer on Good Morning America

    So proud of Sarah Palin this morning on Good Morning America, where the media (Mat Lauer) tried to corner her on her son, the issue of PTSD and his behaviour. She rightly called him out on TV saying that she was told this was about the Iowa caucus and her support for Donald Trump. Lauer tried several times to steer her towards his aganda, and she called him out, and admonished him that this was not what she was promised by the producers would be the topic of conversation. Rather she commented on the military being allowed to do what...

    Donald Trump put NBCs Today show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie on the defensive Monday during a live telephone interview when he called the network out for promoting a CNN poll over an NBC poll because the billionaire had a smaller margin in the CNN survey. The exchange occurs at minute 4:36 of the 5:35-minute interview. CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO The only poll you didn't put up was the NBC poll where I'm way at the top, Im much more than double, said Trump.

    Okay, I only started watching the Today Show this morning just before 8 A.M. but no mention of the name of BRIAN WILLIAMS at the top of the hour news nor afterwards. Sooo...did anybody on the show mention the name of BRIAN WILLIAMS before that time or is BRIAN WILLIAMS now a complete non-person? Also was it my imagination or was the Today Show crew acting over-the-top jolly in order to wipe out the memory of you-know-who even though HE is at the top of their thoughts. I bet they are having a hard time to keep from blurting out...
