I realize that the Today Show isn’t exactly the TV equivalent of Woodward and Bernstein, but have they always been as totally devoid of any sense of depth or taste as they are now?
I missed the State of the Union address because I had to work late and hoped to hear about it on the news the next morning. Instead, Katie and Matt are staging a version of DATING GAME. On the morning after the Al-Jazeera tape that may or may not be Osama bin Laden’s voice, they’re discussing makeovers of Al Roker with the gayest guy in New York not to wear a feather boa who I’m guessing from appearance and inexplicable TV time is the bastard son of Tim Curry and Liza Minelli. Today, on the morning after 54 people died in a still blazing fire in a Rhode Island nightclub, that zany-wacky-tastic Matt and Katie are playing Trading Spaces with their dressing rooms. No mention is made on any of these about the top stories.
Is this why Katie Couric became a journalist? Is Matt a journalist? Christ, folks, there’s enough fluff on cable, can’t we have something halfway intelligent to start the morning with? I look forward to the invasion of Iraq so that we can see how Matt & Katie are going to do each other’s hair while Al gives himself dreads and Special Foreign Correspondents Anna Nicole Smith and Jack Osbourne interview Uday Hussein.
