“Matt Lauer” is a trending topic on Twitter this morning. He’s certainly generating a lot of social media buzz for the holiday. But it’s not for anything good, alas.

The veteran NBC host of the Today Show is anchoring the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade — and aggravating all sorts of viewers. Gershwin fans, for one:

Gotta love the “real journalists!”

Many more viewers used Twitter to vent about their general, anti-Lauer peeves:

More bad news: People are talking about new rumors that Lauer and his notorious ego are about to get the axe.

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…’It’s just desserts. Matt is finally getting what he deserves!’ a Studio 1-A set insider told The Enquirer.

We bet a lot of Lauer’s old colleagues, still walking around with his knives in their backs, will be singing “‘S Wonderful:”

    Now that the media got Obama re-elected it’s time to take care of their own business. The liberal hosts, wo have no hope of turning out an audience, will be dumped for people who do until the next election cycle rolls around.

    Instead of firing Lauer to see if ratings improve, have they considered having Savannah Guthrie do the program in a bikini?

    considering ole matt probably ahs the same educational background of obama its not surprising simular to “Navy Corpsemen” and “I’ve been to 57 states”……shows what all that education has done for them imagine the not so famous that get to go thru it.

      Organisation of Islamic Cooperation there are 57 states of Isalm.

    • http://www.facebook.com/michael.baram Michael Baram

      Lauer used his “previous studies” experience in TV to “qualify” for a Media Communications degree from Ohio University, so he doesn’t even have four years as an undergraduate. Absent any records, all we can say about Obama is that he says he graduated from Columbia and Harvard Law.

    • Paul Kersey

      “I’ve been to 57 states, not counting Hawaii or Alaska, and there’s one more to go.” So he thought there were 60!!

    • clbrown

      The “All 57 States” thing wasn’t a gaff. Wanna know what it really was?

      Now, to be clear, I don’t believe Obama’s a Muslim, but I DO believe he’s tried very hard to make Muslims think that he is, just as he’s tried to make Christians think he’s a Christian. (In reality, I think he’s an “Obamian.”)

      But.. for the “57 states” thing, you should look into whether or not there is any context in which you could say that there were “57 states.” And there is.

      At the moment, one of the member states is “suspended”… that would be Syria. But, when he made that statement, there were 57 member states in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

      That little “slip” was a way of trying to convince them that “I’m on your side.”

  • Dandee

    It’s wonderful to hear Matt Lauer is leaving or should I say S Wonderful.

    Lauer, to be 55 on Dec 30th is just too old for AM TV with our youth obsessed TV culture. That, plus America is tired of the liberal news media even if election results do not make that painfully clear. Oprah could sit on that couch and it would be no better.

    • john_koenig

      It’s not his age; Stephanopolous is 52 and Charlie Rose is 70. Lauer is an insufferable douche at any age. That’s why he’s on his way out.

          • Paul Kersey

            Probably referring to how some districts had 100% turn out..just like Chavez.. or how some precincts had 107-130% voter turnout.. and how the chickenshyt GOP just “Oh well’s” it and doesn’t even put up any type of fight about voter irregularities or disenfranchisement of military votes.. Just a guess though..

          • $6557272

            I know all that. My point is “so what”. You looking to the Republicans to do something about it? The battles are at the front, complaining about the election is similar to hanging around where’s nothing happening.

          • PatThe Rat

            Would the GOP really have let the election go if it had not been decided beforehand? It makes no sense that the people prove so may irregularities and the party that is supposedly there to ensure the election is run fairly just poo-poos it. Time for people to wake up. Someone needs to invent an app so we in the GOP can track votes nationwide and make sure our votes are really being counted and keep them from stealing another election.

        • $6557272

          Time to get over the election, keep educated on current affairs and urge friends and family who need it… and even people you encounter. Complaining on discussion boards ain’t gonna get it done. I mean, I feel your fury, but….

          It would have been nice to watch the parade with someone who WANTED to be there.

      Who cares how he pronounced the title of some song. I think the fact that he’s a biased media slug who showed his bias very clearly during this last election is indicative of his character. Hope he gets the axe SOON! Couldn’t happen to a more deserving Obama sycophant.

      It’s not just some goofy song. It’s not about the song, this is about the kind of ‘American’ stuff journalists HIS age ought to know! If the bubble headed blond had said this…yeah she’d get a pass. H3ll, I’ve got socks older than her! But Matt Lauer is just 2 years younger than me, he should know this song. It’s not obscure.

      This was a Sinatra classic, it was played plenty in his life, he SHOULD have known this.

      Or, he should have done some homework prior to the parade. Who am I kidding, anyone from the Today Show doing homework about anything Americans used to know simply by living here!

    Mediocrity is the new standard. If it reflects (and SUCEEDS) at the polls during an historic presidential election, it is NO surprise to see such hacks remaining behind the cameras on morning “news” shows. This means Lauer is due for a raise and the Pulitzer prize, if you go by the backward logic which is now the majority of our ailing country. He’ll be awarded even if just to attempt angering his critics, the “stick it to the proverbial man syndrome”. All you Lauer critics are just racist!.. That would be the narrative if only his skin fit it. But Happy Thanksgiving!!

      Obama doesn’t even make that much (on the books) and he is a far more accomplished teleprompter-reader.

  • DaMama

    What a nimrod. It’s time for Lauer to step down. Not knowing the names of American classic songs may not seem like much, but when you are hosting an important event like the Thanksgiving Day Parade, you better know your stuff! It’s just laziness, stupidity or ignorance. Either way, it’s no way for a TV show host to behave.

  • airmanc5

    Matthew only makes 21 million a year..yeppers only $21 million.. maybe his stupidity is because he thinks he is one of the underpaid 1%ers HOw would you like to see his and Katie Courics (40 million a year) tax return?

  • old_redneck

    Looks as though the gates of the Crazyville Asylum were left open — first we had “Benghazigate” and now it’s “S’Wonderfulgate.”

    Jesuschrist don’t you people have something serious to be cranked up about?

    • GiantClam

      We do make an issue over the president watching the death of Americans at the hands of terrorists while he sat on his hands – but you degenerate libs, and your degenerate lib media ignore it.

  • Tanker74

    Matt Lauer is a national treasure.

    • doc255

      Ok, let’s bury him….

      • Mr.CommonSense

        LMAO!!!!!!!!!

  • DorothyGrissom

    Ummm…I didn’t like Matt Lauer’s coverage of the parade either. So? I changed the channel. Duh.

  • Goo Gwaba

    He’s dumb, yes, but you’re mad about mispronouncing a name of a song, and not the death of American citizens in Benghazi at the hands of the regime? This a$$hole has covered that up from day one, like the rest of his buddies in the media.

  • http://Twitter.com/jkerrysforehead John Kerry’s Forehead

    Lauer is a complete asshole and he should apologize to America for being, well, a dousche bag.

  • chiliboots

    This doo-fuss will not be missed. He is a complete Moron.

  • Jack Deth

    I gave up on NBC news and their affiliated infotainment shows once Chet Huntley and David Brinkley retired. Looks like I haven’t missed anything noteworthy or worthwhile.

  • Red_Ruffansore

    Matt Liar get the axe? After tongue bathing the administrations dangling fruit with such dexterity? He’s been such a good water boy, don’t axe him just because he’s a glittering jewel of ignorance, axe him with a real axe because he’s a useful idiot who lives in an ivory media created tower and actually believes people care what he thinks.

  • http://twitter.com/ianhanneman Ian Hanneman

    We love you Matt S’Lauer! not

  • buckofama2010

    lauer is a pitiful liberal filthyfag

  • GiantClam

    Seriously??? $21 mil a year? For doing WHAT?? I feel like I’m in the twilight zone.
    He’s an arrogant smug lib who knows nothing about anything. He isn’t worth 21 cents. Get these lying libs off the air.

  • bob manning

    My wife like Ann Curry; and only watches the Today Show because of what it “used to be”…..Guess the old Libs can get the old foot in the A$$ like everybody else!!

  • whitneymuse

    Lauer…lor Lower…and lower….
    hum to melody of S Wonderful…let’s get this done before 2013, and start off anew.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jtopps1 Jeffery Topps

    The telecast of the parade is unwatchable. whether it’s CBS or NBC. I tried. even with the sound off, too little parade and too many “celebrities.” Finally just turned the TV off.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      Yeah, I basically watched Gameday Morning yesterday on NFL Network. Hope Rich Eisen doesn’t hear the siren call of The Peacock

  • LouAnnWatson

    matt lauer, who got his start co-hosting a daytime titillation show with nancy glass and linda dano…what depth of knowledge are you expecting from a male bimbo?

  • dave m

    it’s beautiful when they turn on their own

  • Zach Peterson

    Matt who? I haven’t watch nbc in … honestly… all kidding aside … 20+ years.

  • Delroy_Monjo

    But….but…..”The lucrative agreement between Limbaugh and Clear Channel-owned Premiere Radio Networks of Los Angeles is the second-largest ever for a radio
    personality, ranking behind only Howard Stern’s five-year contract with Sirius
    Satellite Radio in 2004 that was valued at more than $500 million in stock and
    cash.” sez Washington Post Staff Writer
    Thursday, July 3, 2008
    Just thought I’d throw in the standard leftist retort since this is one of the few places I can go without being shouted down by ad hominum attacks, circular arguments or just plain LIES by people who are no doubt as smart as or even smarter than anyone else on the planet.

    • alanaforsyth

      No attack, but “hominem” is correct. Forgive me, but I spread accuracy wherever I go.

      • Delroy_Monjo

        Yes, alana, you are correct about the sp. Maybe I should have inserted the tag as well, just to clarify my thinking.

    • Mr.CommonSense

      Shhh don’t tell anyone, but they have sort of a hive mind. The more of them there are, the smarter they get. Soon they will have enough to cast down all known gods and crown themselves as god.

    • Pendy1

      Rush has an audience.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      I bet NBC thinks giving Stern $$$ to do AGT wasn’t worth it.

  • Paul Kersey

    “who earns a staggering $21.5 million a year”… sounds like he’s one of those “evil rich” he often ranted about.. definitely a 1%er.. how much does this idiot give back to the poor and unfortunate?

  • alanwillingham

    The Today Show has never recovered since the departure of Dave Garroway…. “Peace” ; )

  • James McLarey

    When we would watch the parade on TV when I was a kid (B4 the “enlightened” age), you practically never saw the announcers AT ALL! The parade itself was the star! Now, the time is almost equally divided between the parade and the announcers, announcing promos for their own shows, promos for themselves, promos for their own networks other shows, pointing out stars of their own network shows who “just happen” to be in the parade, sponsors’ floats, etc. It’s a joke!

  • http://www.barackobozo.com/ Barack_Obozo

    I remember when there were about three or four Thanksgiving Day Parades on just 3 networks now if you want to watch the one you need to endure never ending babble and bad jokes…bring back just the balloons and float and send the commentators packing.

  • clbrown

    Wow… scary…

    These idiots don’t care about outrageous political bias, and general journalistic malfeasance, all that’s evidently just fine.

    But fail to be a total devotee of showtunes, and that’s grounds for a total rage-fest.

    I couldn’t name a single Gershwin song, off the top of my head. I don’t HATE the guy or his music, and I might recognize a song or two if you played it. I just have different musical tastes, and choose to listen to what I enjoy, rather than what I’m “supposed to listen to.”

    Does that mean I’m in danger of arrest if I go to NYC sometime soon???

    • justlisa

      True… But, you’re not making $21.5 mil a year to know…

  • mohammedX

    when it comes right down to it…I think Lauer is too rich, liberal, and vapid ultimately to care. He!!, he’s probably been secretly dancing like an excited halfcocked elf every time NBC re-upped him and gave him more money considering he does so very little to earn it unless smug and vapid are marketable skills. Even with his low IQ, he knew this day was coming, he is just shocked it took so long. Couldn’t happen to a smugger S Hit Bag

  • slayur

    I guess people have forgotten about benghazi already…

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Galtar/100003234383316 John Galtar

    Matt Lauer is an Ohio U flunky, before they gave him an honorary degree in Athens, Ohio.

  • kwc57

    No worse than Dear Leader pronouncing corps corpse. But no one seemed to mind that at all.

  • delmar

    Matt was trying to connect with latinos by pronouncing it with a spanish flair———— es Wonderful

  • misterwax

    firing lauer is a god decision, about 20+ years too late…..he is a complete schmuck!

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Glorified tele-prompter reader, and a bad one at that. What a dumbass.

  • StillWatching2

    If it takes this to get rid of him so be it. Just one more boring bigot in the media. The IMPORTANT question is how does this help Obama’s re-election?

  • Onemore913

    I stop watching him many years ago…he acted like it was the Matt Lauer show…quit watching back when the Deborah Norvell fiasco happened. too much drama from him. Arrogant know-it-all. Bring Ann back.

  • CSM

    I look forward to the day when tweets are no longer considered worthy of news coverage.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bridgette-Andrews/100003851626794 Bridgette Andrews

    Lauer’s a bitch.

  • Native New Yorker

    Lauer is an overpaid, narcissistic, ingnoramist!

  • killerbeeeee

    What’s wrong with Matt Lauer?? He’s the same as Stefanopoulos. I haven’t watched these liberal Pro-Obama creeps in years. Isn’t THAT really the problem?

  • $31231295

    Because nothing quite says im a pretentious douche like tweeting your discontent of someone mispronouncing a made up word used a song title written almost 100 years ago.

  • yviemarie88

    I stopped watching the day Katie Couric stopped reporting news and started spouting her views. You could see what was happening then.

  • PatThe Rat

    Wow. Really? This is news? Some dude that makes millions makes a mistake mispronouncing the words of a song. And people are going crazy. Get a life, folks.

    • justlisa

      He makes $21.5 mil a year… Yeah…he should know what he’s doing…

  • http://deadbuffaloblog.blogspot.com/ DeadBuffalo Blog

    When I stopped and thought about it, Lauer actually gets points in my book for not knowing the correct pronunciation. It shows he doesn’t worship at the altar of Broadway.

  • http://twitter.com/CLWoodman Cindy Woodman

    ‘s’old already, time to get a new face…please. I’d pay for a channel showing the parade without trite and un-funny commentary.

  • Elf in Space

    Matt Lauer is the reason I quit watching “Today” about a decade ago!

  • http://luxomni.blogspot.com/ Luxomni

    Who watches TV at that hour? Working people are at or on the way to work. Obama voters are still asleep.

  • Kalusa

    Matt Lauer is good at Today for at least 4 more years, thanks to his work shilling for obama for the last 5 years. Unless obama decides to promote Lauer from his unofficial position to that of Official Minister of Propaganda.

    • Mr.CommonSense

      Hmmm he and Mr. Tingles could fight to the death in the coliseum for that position. All hail BARAK Caesar!

  • Mike Singer

    Could I possibly give less than two craps about Matt Lauer, Today or Gershwin for that matter. My God with all the problems we have in this country and they will only be getting worse this is what people choose to complain about?

  • raldy

    Way to go Amerika. Keep those TVs turned off and maybe the main stream media will get the message. We want the truth, we want you to dig for the truth. We don’t want your stinking propaganda.

  • Hawkdriver1961

    I miss the days of Jane Pauley….Before they brought in Lauer and Kuric.

  • Pendy1

    “The long-time host, who earns a staggering $21.5 million a year…”
    Not “earns”, “is paid”.

  • Emjay Graykat

    Yea, and what about Bengha….HEY!!! They raised by ATM fees by fifty cents!! You BASTARDS!!!!!

  • stevethird

    If it pushes management closer to sacking him, then good. But who will they replace him with…ROSANNE ???

  • Shiori_Uyoku

    G’damnit, I miss Gene Kelly…and ya know, real men and America and other things that don’t suck like overpaid Liberal Philistine media douchebags.

  • http://www.facebook.com/noble.furr Noble Furr

    Sarah Palin wouldn’t make that mistake, Matt. So much for the elitist media that is so smart.

  • teapartydoc

    He doesn’t “earn” 21.5 million a year. A bunch of fools gives it to him. He’s as talented as a gnat. Perhaps less so.

  • Kenny Hitt

    Few years back, one of the anchors at the station I worked at called WNBC reporter Pei-Sze Chang (pronounced “Pacey”) “Pea-Size”.

    Oh, how I laughed.

  • piker1

    Roll the tape of Tom Cruise telling him he’s “glib”.

  • vino veritas

    Guess he learned an important lesson (yeah, likely not): Karma’s a job killer! Michelle Malkin also tweeted about the Gershwin thing & called him a dork for it. Looks like he’ll be an unemployed dork now. Think he should be interviewed on how that phenomenal ‘obama recovery’ is going after a few months of searching for employment.
