Main Stream Media ignores the elephant in the kitchen: human overpopulation By Frosty Wooldridge Sunday night, May 4, 2014, NBC’s anchor Lester Holt introduced Anne Curry for a report on Climate Change causing horrific wildfires, tornadoes, Category 5 hurricanes, rising seas, temperature changes, heat waves and worse for the future. Anne Curry reported on climate change, but no mention of human overpopulation driving it. Nothing like ignoring the elephant in the kitchen as it stomps everything to smithereens: She announced a special committee working to solve the Climate Change problem, but none of them mentioned that the human race adds 1,000,000 (million) of its kind every 4 days that equals to 80,000,000 (million) more of its (our) species annually, decade in and decade out with no end in sight. Curry failed to whisper a second sentence about human overpopulation driving our environmental calamities. Reality check: The overriding, driving, undeniable force for Climate Change, titanic species extinc . ...

Holt closed by saying, "Don't have a great night: have an American night."

S/O to for burying the Miracle on Ice rematch on a network half the country can't see. At least we saw what Lester Holt had for dinner.
Am I the only one who was astounded listening to Mary Carillo speak with Lester Holt on this morning?! They were discussing medal chances for the next week and after using "normal" terms when discussing everything else, when she got to the female USA hockey team she said that when they play Canada they get "cranky" and moody. She then referred to them as chicks with sticks. Really?! Lester's response was that he couldn't get away with that, but neither should she!!

I was watching the Memphis NBC television this morning before I got out of the bed. It had there morning news on with Lester Holt as the anchor, and he is in Russia reporting on the Olympic Games. He is reporting on the games and he keeps talking about the local foods they have near Sochi. He is going into local marts and tasting foods, and they had a buffet set up, and the news cast were trying different foods, and reporting if they liked or disliked the different tastes. This brought back to my mind, a time when I was a kid, and mom's boss went to Russia. This was so long ago, I can tell you that I am not sure how to spell the Russian leaders name, I will try here in a second, but I do know he was the guy in charge after Stalin kicked the bucket. The guy in charge was named Khrushchev, ain't I lucky, spell check has it stored in its memory! Anyways, mom and dad were having a cook out party and mom's boss, his wife and a lot of other people were there. I was still in the learning mode in school, and thou ...

Lester Holt finally trying to be a black man again with his dance moves and lingo during the Olympics coverage was embarrassing. And HILARIOUS!!!
Watching the Olympics, here's my pick (not that anyone cares)to get the Today Show back on track. Lester Holt, Willie Geist, Jenna Bush Hager, Al & Natalie, Savannah(?). Don't care who's where, but Matt, other Jenna (Wolfe) gotta go!

Lester Holt had Dancin' Kate Hansen on during NBC's Olympics coverage this afternoon and, of course, made her break out her now-famous moves. Weeks after the Olympics end, we're going to find out Duncan Kennedy had something to do with this.
If not for a snow day, I never would've seen Lester Holt's incredibly awkward dance moves. Thanks?

You wanna see something cool? Lester Holt has moves, something we all assumed to be true. He’s just long needed a dance partner. Enter Kate Hansen and her Beyoncé inspired dance spasms. She’s given the luge community reason to celebrate.…
I loved seeing Kate Hansen dance with Lester Holt.
LMAO ,Lester holt I think trying to dance , he cant , not rhythm at all
Lester holt , don't quite ur day job! Hysterical !!!
There are only a few ways to watch the Olympics 1-Buy a ticket to Sochi and the desired venues. 2-Buy the top cost packages for cable and dish(the cost for the 2 year 'contract' probably about the same as the ticket(s) to Sochi) 3-And those of us that can't afford 1 or 2, Try our damnedest to be content with 'local' broadcast, which jut amounts to watching Al Michaels and Lester Holt grow old in front of our eyes, with little honest Olympic coverage. NBC should NEVER get coverage rights to ANY sport event(s).
We're not sure who gave NBC anchor Lester Holt the idea to shake his moneymaker with two members of the U.S. Olympic women's luge team, but somebody's got to be held responsible for ... this: Maybe...

So here’s the thing: I love Bob Costas. No, that’s not it; Everyone loves Bob Costas. Costas, to me, is the ultimate voice of reason and logical commentary during a period of time in which I am at my most crazy. Costas sorts through all the crap, pushes hype to the side when it’s too much, and inserts it when he knows we need to pay attention. That he has sparkling blue eyes in which lay the secrets of the ocean is secondary. And I understand that he needs to take some time to keep them sparkling. But it is with great anger that I learned that NBC is handing it off to MATT effing LAUER and his STUPID FACE. THE OLYMPICS DESERVE BETTER, NBC! Bring in Lester Holt!
NBC's Olympic coverage is AWEFUL!! They just said that they were going to live coverage every day...really? Now we get to see Lester Holt.AGAIN!!!
I'm no big fan of the Olympics, whether summer or winter, but I gotta say this winter's edition is really unwatchable. I don't know whether the NBC coverage is worse than usual -- which would seem impossible -- but we do have Al Michaels, Lester Holt and the ever somnolent Dan Patrick snoozing through events. 50 billion reasons to watch something else.
Just heard Matt Lauer is replacing Bob Costas due to his eye infections on NBC's Prime time Olympics broadcast.My reaction why Lauer..Both NBC'sBrian Williams and Lester Holt are better anchors and could do a better job in the anchor chair than the overrated NBC LAuer.
Good to see NBC brought in the young Hip Commentating Team for the Winter Olympics...Bob Costas, Al Michaels, Dan Patrick and Mr Snowboard himself Lester Holt.
Whitney Richards, Lester Holt interviewed Shani Davis this am on NBC.
Ok NBC! You would not be my first choice for airing the Summer/Winter Olympics! Seeing Al Michaels, Chris Collinsworth and Lester Holt doing the show part of it is confusing. I see Al and Chris and I'm thinking football, but no, it's ice skating(dancing), ice prancing! And how the *** is that a team event?
61 degrees in Sochi? Did I just hear that correctly Lester Holt?
From skip to sweeper, Lester Holt learns all there is to know about curling from the U.S. women's team.
What's up lately with seemingly every on-air broadcaster having to wear "Lester Holt" glasses?
"Why I love the Olympics?" Sage Kotsenburg won a gold medal in Slopestyle. Basically Spicoli who was the doped surfer dude from Fast Times at Ridgemont High won a gold medal for going down a slope and throwing himself in to a Japan 1660 I think it is called. Just spontaneously he threw a trick he had never done before and won gold. He is fun to watch interview. Basically Bob Costas has taken credit for telling him he should have thrown the trick and Lester Holt has taken credit for being his training partner. The funny thing was he won the first gold on the first day. He missed the Opening ceremonies so he could stay home and rest since his team mates got in from the opening events about 2am. They asked him what was he going to do now? He is going to go to as many of the other events as he can and enjoy them.
JUST about to turn off the news in the background and astounded that neither Lester Holt or Evan L (the guy who won gold for figure skating 4 years ago) asked "what is that music playing?"….Uh…SWAN LAKE….possibilty the most famous ballet music ever! Just had to share!
NEWS FLASH: NBC's Lester Holt openly says Obumma Care is a JOB KILLER ,… wonder how much longer he'll be employed there

Just to show that I'm not dead yet and that I do have a lighter side, I have a couple of comments about the Olympics; That 15-year-old Russian girl figure skater looks like she weighs about 65 pounds. It made me wonder how many times I could lift her over my head like I was lifting weights before I dropped her and one, or both of us, got hurt. Probably none, but my chances would be a lot better than trying to lift 120 to 140 pounds! :-) I got a kick out of Lester Holt asking the three women hosts of TODAY this morning, if they had watched much of the Olympics yet. No pressure ladies - just tell 'em you have been watching something else if that is really the case. Ha! :-) Even so, one of the women said nothing. The same question was put to the women yesterday by another man and he got a really lukewarm response. My - things sure can change in a day. Sometimes, one feels like a little coaching is going on behind the scenes!
After a few days of NBC's limited coverage of Ice Skating and some other events in Russia, I have the following impressions. A network who has only one NFL football game a week has lost it's sports edge. They are the HGTV of Network Television. Bob Costas is not Jim McKay and if something bad does occurs he needs to be out of the studio fast and get Lester Holt in there to cover it. I understand trying to draw a younger audience, by showing all the XGames type stuff it is even fun to watch but do advertisers not realize there people they target don't watch TV. NBC has consultants that have told them to feed America's on Ice Skating, Ice Skating and more Ice Skating. Graded art is not near as fun to watch as any even where someone has to faster, go further or higher. I enjoy ballet and opera and classical music, but 13 of 16 nights of coverage around Ice Skating is a weak and soft decision by NBC. I hope to find a rose in the snow of these games, but so far, all I have is a bad taste if Ice Skating ...
In order to win the first Olympic gold medal of the Sochi Games, Sage Kotsenburg risked his life training countless hours in slopestyle. NBC's Lester Holt joins the Olympic champion on the mountain to discuss the extreme nature of the event.
Why is Lester Holt in Sochi at the Olympics? Are some athletes going to get busted on Dateline for homicide or underage dating?
Heidi here at the ski Village Rosa Khutor doing the NBC today show live this morning with Lester Holt. Proud of the way you have handled this all Heidi Kloser. Women's mogul finals tonight, we'll be up cheering on the US girls, hopefully Heidi will be able to be there with us.
Lester Holt from NBC looks like a fool with his helmet and SUNGLASSES (no goggles) during his snowboard lesson on the Today Show. You would think NBC could afford goggles for him.
Today Show's Lester Holt interviewing Russian supermodel who led in the Russian Olympic athletes: "It was nice seeing you" Ya think?! She's gorgeous! Highlight of his day!!
Lester Holt - talking to the 15 girl who trashed her knee knocking her out of the Olympics "How do you feel? What happened? Do you still consider yourself an Olympian?" Dude! You are a tool! She is still just a 15 year old kid!
I was reminded of You guys tonight, J and Haley. While watching the Olympics I discovered I now know of two tv personalities that remind me of J. Tonight was nbc host Lester Holt. Check him out. Am I alone on this one? Do you remember who the other tv personality was?
Did anybody else get that by Lester Holt!! What he said, For the next 16 days, we follow suit, we only talk about the things we should be talking about when we're covering the Olympics games of the Athletic, the Athletic competition.Let's keep our fingers cross. Now, that's scary!! That's exactly what he said..
What did Lester Holt say at the beginning? Their show reportedly wouldn't be as grand or showy as Beijing's? Yeah right. The Russians put on quite a show!
