It's also worth noting that Brian Beutler of the NYT (who's been very scoopy on this sort of stuff) has a book coming out about the morning show wars next month. I'm intrigued.
This is a good read except for the author's penchant for noting how often the women in the story cried. Wouldn't just saying that Curry or Guthrie were upset be good enough? (I understand mentioning Curry's on-air tears, but just felt like there was some weird "women always cry" thread going through the article.)
Just wait 'til Curry returns with her army and her dragons...

Keeping in mind the No Politics rule, I just have to say that I found this astounding:"When I bring up the press about him, Lauer grows agitated. 'There was a piling on,' he says. 'Fair, untrue, unfair, it didn’t matter, there was a wave of negativity.'When the media covers something, it’s important to do basic homework. You can’t just repeat something over and over again until it sounds true. It’s not fair. You know how much trouble we would be in if we did that? If we repeated what one person told us over and over like it was a basic fact? We would be done.'”
