Today’s Professionals: Edward Snowden Hero or Traitor?

Star Jones, Donny Deutsch and Dr. Nancy Snyderman later joined Matt Lauer for Today’s Professionals. The first topic of the day was Edward Snowden, the man responsible for the NSA leaks: is Edward Snowden a hero or a traitor?

“He’s a criminal,” Star said matter-of-factly. Whether or not you believe Snowden’s intentions were good, he broke the law and will have to face the consequences.


Donny Deutsch felt very strongly about Snowden’s actions. “He is a traitor with a capital T,” he said. Donny believes that it’s the government’s job to protect its citizens, and those citizens should not be entitled to know all the details. “This man just made us a lot less safe,” he added.

Today’s Professionals: Paris Jackson Custody

Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, recently made headlines after a tragic suicide attempt. After the young girl attempted to take her own life, the public has been left to wonder whether she’s really receiving the care she needs from her grandmother, Katherine Jackson. Should Paris Jackson stay with her grandmother, or move in with her biological mother Debbie Rowe?

Star reminded everyone that Debbie Rowe gave up all parental rights after giving birth to Michael Jackson’s children. Technically, she is not Paris’ real parent. The court will make their decision based only on the well being of the child.

Today’s Professionals: Are Wedding Gifts Outdated?

Matt revealed that many people are starting to forego traditional wedding gifts for newly married couples. Now, most people marry much older, and don’t really need things like china, appliances, and other products for their new home. While this is true, it’s really up to the bride. If she’s expecting gifts, you’d better show up with one!

Savannah Guthrie is getting married soon, and she plans on asking people to donate to charity on her behalf. I think that’s a very modern and selfless gesture.
