93. It sounds more like ego
I'm sure the battles go on, like Leno vs. Letterman, but this is NBC vs. MSNBC. Same company, same team. Or, at least, it should be the same team. Instead, the twits on the Today Show are doing crap like this or booking O'Reilly and ignoring (or even worse, disrespecting) Mr. Olbermann.

Sure, Lauer is a higher paid "talent" ("talent"! Now that's funny!), but they're all in the same company. Lauer isn't going anywhere, he's reached the peak. Thus, he could have recognized that he doesn't need the scoop and, since Mr. Olbermann got his interview through honest means, he could have shown the ability to be a team player. He still had the first network interview, but that wasn't good enough to feed the ego.

BTW, your time at the Tonight Show, was it before, during, or after Helen Kushnick?
