Media Rivalry Gets Nasty, Stupid

‘Today’ Makes ‘GMA’ Gay

The rivalry between NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America has reached a new low. NBC staffers have been coping with GMA‘s recent ratings leap by giving it a new nickname: Gay-MA. How clever!

Page Six reports:

Childish staffers at the Today show have been reduced to homophobic name-calling about their rivals at Good Morning America – Diane Sawyer, Chris Cuomo, Robin Roberts and Sam Champion. A network source says, “Today staffers, from top to bottom, executives to interns, refer to GMA‘ as ‘Gay-MA’ ” and snicker about the hosts. GMA has been gaining in the ratings on No. 1 Today and cut its lead in half. For their part, the GMA folks are said to refer to Today as “Yesterday.”

Sounds to us like GMA‘s a bit more grown up. Not grown up enough to turn the other cheek, but at least their not-so-loving nickname doesn’t draw on school yard taunts.

    Another reason NOT to watch the Nothing But Crap morning show.

    As far as reporting in the NY Post…they love repoting gay baiting bullshit. They don’t have the nerve to “out” the GMA on air staff that are “known” but not KNOWN to be gay.

    I was going to write something like, “I guess real news has taken a holiday at the Today Show,” but then I remembered that it’s the “Today Show.”

    Good Morning America rocks. Fact is, it is fresh & fun to watch the cool hosts. They’re presenting a news show , in a fun way…who cares who they date? Today is old, nobody wants to see those worms anymore. Too conservative. I have to have my Robin Roberts fix 5 5days a week & I miss her on the weekends! HOT!
