Matt Lauer, you’re my hero. While every other TV personality — from Oprah to Billy Bush — has coddled Hollywood’s #1 movie star, the co-host of NBC NEWS’s “Today” show stepped up to the plate this morning to take Tom Cruise to task for his warped perspective on the use of anti-depressants to treat depression. Scientologists, take that!
It’s about time a real news person didn’t cower at the “command & control” star for whom most everyone else in the “news” biz has caved to interview “guidelines” to gain access. I guess Tom’s sister — his new publicist — must have forgotten that “Today” is and always has been a division of NBC News.
Matt Lauer, your star is rising.
