Matt Lauer may be a member of the media, but that doesn't mean he's a fan of the media.
Asked in the latest issue of Esquire about Ann Curry's firing and the blame for it being placed at his feet, the embattled Today anchor could not hide his disdain for how the event was covered.
"The way the media treated what happened with Ann Curry was a disappointing learning experience," he says. "I was disappointed by the laziness of the media, the willingness to read a rumor, repeat that rumor, and treat it as a fact."
Those rumors, of course, have not quieted for Lauer.
