It's looks like websites are also stuck in the May Sweeps mode.

Americans were shocked to discover that one of the women they trust to deliver their morning news has, for time unknown, been delivering something else, in secret: poops, to a toilet in a far flung part of her office where she thought no one would catch her.

On Monday, the internet shat itself with glee over a Daily Beast story  detailing the lengths women go to while pooping at work to trick people into thinking they’re not pooping at work. They flush prematurely to mask the deafening *PLOP* of a single, solid turd plunging into chilled toilet water. They lose years of their lives lingering in the bathroom, waiting for the other stalls to clear out that they might shit in peace. They embark on epic journeys to distant corners of the office, and lob their shadow poops into unfamiliar porcelain bowls.

Some of these women are famous.

A popular national morning TV show host in her 40s—who, like most others interviewed in this story, asked to remain nameless to avoid embarrassment—said that she walks 10 minutes to another section of her midtown office building to do it, and still then only does it when no one in the hallway sees her en route.

Who is the Phantom Pooper of morning news? We’ve rounded up the suspects who fit the description (female, national morning TV show host, in her 40s, works in Midtown, loves to poop). Here’s our analysis.

Gawker breaks down who they think the shy pooper is?

Spoiler alert, they're going with Hoda Kotb.
