Matt Lauer Fields Storm of Criticism Over Clinton-Trump Forum

By MICHAEL M. GRYNBAUM

Mr. Trump stormed onstage in his familiar motor-mouth style, often talking over Mr. Lauer and declining to directly answer many of his questions. At times, Mr. Lauer  who has conducted fewer adversarial interviews with Mr. Trump than his colleagues on NBCs political desk  appeared flummoxed by his subjects linguistic feints.

.

Drawing particular ire was the moment when Mr. Trump asserted, with his usual confidence: I was totally against the war in Iraq.

.

In fact, Mr. Trump initially said he supported the war, a point that Mrs. Clinton had raised earlier in the evening, citing an interview that Mr. Trump had given to Howard Stern. But Mr. Lauer left the assertion unchallenged, zipping along to his next question about Mr. Trumps professed tendency to say things that you later regret.

.

Journalists and longtime political observers pounced. How in the hell does Lauer not factcheck Trump lying about Iraq? This is embarrassingly bad, wrote Tommy Vietor, a former aide to President Obama. Glenn Kessler, the chief fact checker at The Washington Post, posted a link to NBCs check of Mr. Trumps claim and wrote: @MLauer should have been prepared to do this.

.

Lauer interrupted Clintons answers repeatedly to move on. Not once for Trump, Norman Ornstein, the political commentator, wrote in a Twitter message, adding: Tough to be a woman running for president.

.

On social media, surrogates for Mrs. Clinton began mounting a sustained attack on the anchor. Imagine if @NBCNews had done its job, wrote Nick Merrill, her press secretary, on Twitter. Neera Tanden, a close Clinton ally, was even harsher: I guess the good news is that Matt Lauer isnt moderating an actual debate, she wrote.

.

The criticism captured what has become a common complaint about media coverage during this election: that news organizations and interviewers treat Mrs. Clinton as a serious candidate worthy of tough questions, while Mr. Trump is sometimes handled more benignly.

Will Matt Lauer Be Fired From the “Today” Show?

[I]t is clear that the once-popular hosts relationship with his audience is in peril. Last April, Mr. Lauer signed a contract said to be worth $25 million a year,  the most lucrative deal in the 60-year history of morning television. And then the bottom fell out.

.

The following week, Today fell to second place in the morning ratings for the first time in 16 years. When his co-host, Ann Curry, was forced out over the summer, it was Mr. Lauer and not network executives who shouldered most of the blame.

.

Since then, his popularity among viewers has plummeted and NBC has been forced to deny what was unthinkable a year ago: the rumor that Mr. Lauer, 55, who first took over the co-host chair in 1997, could soon be replaced by a younger host like Willie Geist, 37, or David Gregory, 42.
