‘Not My Job’

Wow, Matt Lauer’s doing his family proud these days:

After Monday’s show, Lauer flew off to conduct an undisclosed “big” interview. He’s piling up newsmakers, lately. Over the weekend, he sat down with Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) and his wife to ask about Craig’s gay-sex-bathroom scandal. Portions run at 7 tonight on NBC, with more Wednesday on “Today.”

In between “Today” segments, I half-joked, “Did you ask him why he’s a big liar?”

“That’s not my job,” Lauer said. “My job is to ask middle-of-the-road questions and let the audience judge for themselves.”

On the one hand, at least he’s being honest about it. “My job is to be an inoffensive pussy, even when I’m selling myself as a hard-hitting interviewer capable of handling questioning public officials on behalf of a public which does not have the access I have.” He is, after all, the morning companion for people who have nothing else to do in the a.m. and the guy following Larry Craig was probably a chef of some kind showing people how to make low-fat tartlets, I mean, nobody was exactly under the impression that this was Edward R. Murrow here.

On the other hand OH MY GOD MAN HAVE A LITTLE PRIDE. JUST A LITTLE BIT. A VERY LITTLE BIT. HAVE THE REMOTEST AMOUNT OF PRIDE THAT MIGHT ALLOW YOU TO THINK OF YOURSELF AS MORE THAN A SEMI-PRETTY AND HALFBRIGHT DOORMAT CHOSEN FOR INTERVIEWS LIKE THIS PRECISELY BECAUSE EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT A USELESS FAMEWHORE YOU ARE. STAND UP FOR YOURSELF THAT MUCH AT LEAST NOT EVEN BECAUSE YOU’RE A MAN. STAND UP FOR YOURSELF AS A MAMMAL.

Jesus.

    What happened tothisMatt Lauer?

    Matt Lauer: “The White House communications director said of your film, it is so outrageously false it’s not even worth commenting. The 41st President of the United States, the president’s father, called you, I think you probably heard this, a slime ball.”
    Michael Moore: “Have they seen it? Have they seen the film? No. Of course they haven’t. I will tell you they haven’t seen it. These are un-credible reviews from people who haven’t even seen the movie.”

    That was a “middle-of-the-road” question?

    Bullseye! Like so much of the MSM, Lauer soft soaps the right wing and kills the left.

    “STAND UP FOR YOURSELF AS A MAMMAL.”
    He fancies himeself a Cordate, and was clearly angling for a Craigdate to go with.
    His mammae are a constant embarassment to him at the gym. How much longer will that sports bra hide his development?

    matt lauer, katie couric, whatever – they’re f?!?ingcodpieces. i.e. – they provide cover for the dicks in the white house.
    the subtext i read from his “middle of the road questions” comment is bitterness. he KNOWS he’s on his knees, and he hates himself for it on some level. he sold his soul for a mess of pottage. the only thing is, once upon a time all it meant was that you ended up with a bad case of dirty mouth. today, it means you’re a collaborator with war criminals.

    Lauer and his MSM ilk are so pathetically afraid that if they start asking the serious questions, the preznit won’t give them turkee, and neither will his Republican buddies. To the cowardly press corps, access is everything, especially to the most secretive administration ever. How dare they even think of considering themselves “mammals”?
