After Lauer’s downfall, uncomfortable video clips circulate
NEW YORK (AP) — "Pretty sweater. Keep bending over like that," Matt Lauer tells his "Today" co-host, Meredith Vieira. "It's a nice view."

The ceremony, narrated by Matt Lauer, Hoda Kotb and Meredith Vieira, was delayed by one hour on the U.S. East Coast, four hours out West. It was not offered live online. Much like four years ago when there was a longer delay from...
