Even though Matt Lauer wasn't the one who got the boot, his image has suffered the most from Ann Curry's dismissal.
While Matt did earn $25 million this year, the money wasn't enough to ease the emotional pain and damage to his image.
Matt's image has been so tainted that NBC has begged him to take a public lunch with Ann Curry in hopes of mending his persona and upping Today's suffering ratings.
Matt is STILL being constantly heckled on the streets of New York because of his behavior toward Ann and NBC is becoming desperate to show a kind of public unity between the two!
What goes around comes around!
