We know what you're thinking: What's with the recent resurgence of news surrounding Matt Lauer and his role in Ann Curry's dismissal from NBC's "Today"?
Yes, her emotional sign off from the morning show went down last June. So, why is he generating headlines right now?
Why did "Today" co-host Kathie Lee Gifford find it necessary to gather signatures from the show's stars to show solidarity with Lauer? And why would his former co-host Meredith Vieira feel it necessary to stand up for him in the press?
The easy answer? A new book, "Top of the Morning" by Brian Stelter, has drudged up some of the behind the scenes antics that led to Curry's departure, "Today's" fall from grace and "GMA's" rise to ratings prominence.
