As a fan of Matt Lauer I have always had the highest respect for his ability to interview guests without stooping to the childish techniques employed by other television personalities, but recently, he has begun to act disrespectfully to his guests, including badgering them instead of interviewing them. He has beginning to look like a tenacious bulldog that holds on to a meaningless topic and will not let go.
In his interview with Michelle Bachman he was downright rude and condescending. He seemed to be trying to make her angry instead of actually seeking information: which is his job. I am so disappointed in him as a journalist and/or Today Show Anchor and/or television commentator. He used to be my hero~~~What is happening here??????
