As if NBC’s “Today” show needed any more controversy, a new one has erupted over whether Savannah Guthrie flipped off her co-host Matt Lauer on the air.

TMZ.com reports: “Matt Lauer definitely got the finger from co-host Savannah Guthrie this morning … live on ‘Today’ … only question is — which finger?”

The incident took place during a segment about vacuum cleaners in which Lauer joked: "By the way this is the first time Savannah has ever used a vacuum."

TMZ adds: “Savannah apparently thought she was off camera when she fired off a one-finger salute in Matt’s direction!”

Guthrie says it was her index finger, and she tweeted that she would prove it with photographic evidence. Meanwhile, here’s the video:

  1. I am a long time viewer of the Today Show. The link below is from an interview of Matt Lauer with NJ governor Chris Christie on 10/28/14 regarding the Ebola crisis. I initially saw this on TV and could not believe my eyes! At approximately 5:40 minutes into the interview Matt appears to “flip the finger” to the governor. I’ve watched this over and over, and it looks very convincing. What do you think?
