Wow, she really wasted no time here, don't you think?

We usually expect to her father, Michael Lohan, to respond to stuff like this on her behalf…whether she likes it or not!

But apparently, Lindsay Lohan is NONE too pleased with Tom Brokaw's recent slam against the starlet, as he revealed that he will never attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner again after she was invited as Greta Van Susteren's guest last year!

According to sources, she believes his comments

Ann Curry Was MORE POPULAR With Today Show Viewers Than Matt Lauer! ALL THE DEETS From The EXPLOSIVE New York Magazine Article HERE!

matt new york article

It's pretty bad when the actual, behind-the-scenes drama is even WORSE than what's being reported in the news!

But unfortunately, in the case of much-reported-upon, devastating drama on The Today Show that left Ann Curry fired, Matt Lauer looking like a real piece of work, and Good Morning America knocking them out of the ratings for the first time in 16 years, it wasn't just bad - it was a downright CLUSTERF-CK.

On top of the news that came to the light this morning which revealed the widely-criticized news anchor fooled ABC into negotiating a deal he never planned to take to secure his position at NBC, as well as a pay-day and assurance that Ann would get let go, the EXPLOSIVE new article in New York Magazine delves even deeper in the complex back-stabbing, paranoia, and shady negotiations that went on at 30 Rockefeller Center…and it ain't pretty!

For instance, even though Lauer, Today Show executive producer Jim Bell, and several NBC affiliates thought Curry was the problem, there was CLEAR internal research that showed that audiences agreed it was MATT who was the less appealing one, as he came off as "aloof, a little bit holier-than-thou and pompous.”

And despite his attempts to appear sad and regretful about the way everything went down,

Don't Give Up On America, Brokaw!

Filed under: Sad Sad

tom brokaw tells unemployed to find jobs overseas

Has it already come to this?!

While being interviewed on BlogTalkRadio, NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw had some inconvenient advice for college grads trying to find a job.

He said:

"I wouldn't be looking just within our borders for opportunities. I'd be looking to see what the chances are of getting a job in the Middle East, for example. Or in India. Or in China

I've talked to a number of very senior American executives who — so much of their work now is offshore — say one of the things they need are people who are willing to pack up and go there and become middle managers."

Yikes! A little extreme, don't U think?!
