MATT LAUER is “derogatory and dismissive” towards underlings at Today—insider.
“The way Matt treats staffers at work is so derogatory and dismissive,” a source close to the show said about the 25-year-veteran host.
“He is so demeaning to many people on the staff. He is cordial to his fellow hosts and the senior executives but to anyone below him they say he treats them like dirt.”
After GMA trounced Today in the May Sweeps, beating them solidly, the show’s failures were landing squarely at Matt’s feet.
“For a while Matt was acting nicer to everyone, but now the staffers are afraid of him,” the source said.
“They say that it is harder than ever to work with him.”
