All The News, Matt Lauer Style

Keeping the momentum up following his prime-time interview of child molester Debra Lafave, Matt Lauer is once again showing us just how important the network morning news game is:
Our network insider says the on-air talent at NBC's long-running morning gabfest is already on the warpath over the $3.5 million makeover that heralded the arrival of Katie Couric's replacement, Meredith Vieira, last week. "They're fuming that it's too big. It just swallows them up, and it looks something like a hospital wing," our insider continues. "Both Meredith and Matt Lauer have complained about it, so there are going to be changes. It's going to evolve again over the next couple of months, and it's going to cost them millions more to do it, even though they worked on the new set since April." (NY Post)
Imagine how many hair plugs $3.5 million plus could have bought aspiring third world broadcasters! Where are Matt's priorities?
