´It´s just desserts!´
Matt Lauer ´set to get the axe´
from Today after ratings free-fall
and clashing with co-anchors

Daily Mail (UK), by Helen Pow

Original Article

Posted By:LadyVet, 11/22/2012 8:51:38 AM

After repeatedly clashing with co-anchors and overseeing plummeting ratings, the Today show´s Matt Lauer is reportedly being given the boot. The long-time host, who earns a staggering $21.5 million a year, is being blamed for the NBC morning show´s dismal performance over the past three months and sources claim ratings will only improve if he is replaced. According to The National Enquirer, weatherman Al Roker is plotting to push the 54-year-old TV veteran out of his anchor chair and is lobbying a newly appointed Today producer for help.

If true, there´s another blessing to count.

I do not really care as I do not watch and have not for some time, but al roker is not the answer, he was one reason I got tired of the whole thing. Besides, we have this site which is more interesting and has smarter people. Happy turkey day and thank the good Lord for Lucianne and her crew!!

He makes 21.5 million a year and yet he is an adversary of the so-called rich. He creates no jobs and produces a bad product. The world is upside down.

Personally I couldn´t care less who they replace him with as I don´t anything on NBC...period...so long as they continue with their liberal, prattling, pandering propaganda. If you want to know their real agenda just watch that sham (or shame) of a "news" network called MSNBC that hasn´t a clue how to spell the word "truth"!

What OP said. A little schadenfreude to cheer up the post-election gloom. Lauer has been a snotty little brat since the first day he walked on to that set. Meredith Vieira carried the show for years until she decided he just weighed too much and was too unpleasant to lug around any more.

We never were serious watchers - we like Fox in the morning - but cannot imagine why anyone ever thought he was an appealing person. Most never cared "where in the world" he was.

They´re really starting to eat their own, aren´t they? NBC´s turning into its Soviet Motherland circa 1924-1936 when thousands of Old Communists were hammered-and-sickled by the Cheka (later the NKVD/ MVD) on orders from Lenin and Stalin, for being insufficiently zealous or something. Lauer seems to be currently fitted up for the Trotsky role.

$21 million for this stiff. But it´s safe to say he´s not going to be standing in any lines to sign up for food stamps or a government check. Even Katie found another job, he will too.

#19, I agree 100% and include Whoraldo Rivers along with him. Fox News has enough other libtards to keep them "Fair and Balanced". The others are just a little more low-key and not so offensive - except for Alan Colmes, who is just a dumba$$ clown.

I don´t watch and don´t plan to ever watch, but I think he´s your basic unpleasant person. I have never gotten the least bit of an uplifting feeling when seeing him talk or reading about him. And if all the crap about Ann Curry is true and how he treated her, then this is poetic justice.

Knee-jerk, Lib buffon Colmes takes FoxNews down a click with every appearance. He is a waste of time, serving only to fog the Far Left threat to this nation. FoxNews should hire only movement Libs with teeth, so the political battle can be joined. I was happy to see John Postesta on a few months ago... We need to see, confront and expose more dead serious Libs like him. Arguing with joke Libs like Colmes only weakens us on the Right and wastes our time.

Family and friends of the teenage boy who was shot to death by his girlfriend´s father after sneaking into her bedroom are demanding that the girlfriend be charged with accessory to murder or involuntary manslaughter. A group of the 17-year-old Johran McCormick´s supporters, including his mother Zakia McCormick and community activist Quanell X, rallied on Wednesday morning outside the home near Houston, Texas where authorities say the teenager was killed on March 13. Investigators have said McCormick´s 16-year-old girlfriend let him into the house on Bridgestone Ridge Dr. in Spring, Texas.

It was a flight bound for Florida, and some airline pilots believe it also may have been a dry-run for terrorists. The 10 News Investigators have obtained an internal memo that details a frightening incident that brings back memories of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Since then, federal efforts have gone in place to prevent a similar attack, leading many to believe another attack what happened on 9/11 could never happen again. Wolf Koch, who flies Boeing 767s for Delta Airlines and is the Aviation Security Committee Chairman for the Air Line Pilots Association International, says that belief "is very foolish."

New York Times Sells
Boston Globe at 93% Loss

Posted By: LadyVet- 8/3/2013 9:23:01 AM     Post Reply
After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.

A conservative group is challenging Democrat Ed Markey’s Massachusetts residency less than a week before he faces a special election for a U.S. Senate seat in that state. Markey, currently a member of the House of Representatives, should legally be considered a resident of Maryland, America Rising PAC stated in a Tuesday complaint filed with the Maryland state comptroller. The group also claims Markey violated Maryland law by failing to file Maryland tax returns despite living primarily in that state.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
