'Today' Show Anchor

We Won't Let Knife Attack

Change Our Show

The "Today" show will NOT STOP shooting segments outside the studio ... despite this morning's frightening incident with a knife-wielding man ... this according to co-anchor Natalie Morales.

Morales was leaving the studio after the show today (which happens to be her birthday) ... when she told us why she believes the show MUST continue to feature outdoor segments.

"It's part of our identity as the show," Morales said ... "We'll still be out there."

Morales also gave credit to the show's security team -- which took down the man when he started cutting himself in front of the crowd.

Doesn't "attack' imply that someone was actually attacked anymore or can one really attack themselves? Did Paris Jackson 'attack' her arm too?

I really like Natalie, and this was one of the most coherent TMZ interviews I have ever heard. Pleasantly surprised that the cameraman asked normal questions and didn't wet himself in the presence of celebrity.

Has anyone verified that the person who slit their wrists wasn't Ann Curry?

Knuckle sandwiches should be directed towards Matt Lauer. That guy is a complete buffoon.

I'm fairly sure she doesn't speak for the producers of the Today show.

Check for finger prints! Might be the same weapon Matt Lauer used to knife Anne Curry in the back!

Another STUPID PRETTY BRAINLESS FACE,
who is she to say what the "SHOW" will do or not do;
Wannabe spokesperson too? when she's not even a good co-anchor.
