  1. Kind of interesting now that Matt Lauer getting a taste of his own medicine in the sexual harassment scandal. The Republican lady who blew the whistle on Monica and Bill died of cancer after the Republican party shunned her. Sarah Palin, Lance Armstrong and Sean Penn disappeared from the spotlight. Very rare to see them these days. Bashir hardly heard much about in fact look like his status as a top interviewer disappeared.

  2. That Michael Jackson interview was pretty rough. Didn’t realize how bad it messed his image up

    Also tom cruise interview with matt lauer was so uncomfortable.
