Dumb MSM quotes

From Friday, Jan 5, 2007, the Today Show:

Meredith Viera ...

Excursus: I still cannot figure out why they plucked Viera from The View to replace Katie, when they had all kinds of talent right there in the newsroom. Could it be that the competent and adorable Campbell Brown was too young and threatening to the aging demographic that watches the network morning shows?

... was interviewing the person who is producing Grease: You're the One that I Want, a talent show where, get this, America will pick the next stars of a Broadway production. And Viera says:
This is so original.
Yeah, Original. Except for everything from the Ted Mack Amatuer Hour up through American Idol. What hole has this woman been hiding in?
