Ann Curry, graduate of the University of Oregon and anchorette of NBC’s Today show, has been sacked, according to multiple news reports. I may have read about this in March or April, but let it slide. I previously wrote about my dislike of her after finding a blog dedicated to the subject, I Hate Ann Curry.
She may be reassigned to a news magazine such as Dateline, a show I despise more than Curry’s shoddy, feel-good so-called journalism. She might just fit in with the sleazy tabloid style.
|Apparently, the mighty Matt Lauer can’t stand his co-anchor and believes she has created a boring shell out of a once bright and fulfilling show.|
Lauer was certainly right on that one. Why she was promoted will always be a source of puzzlement for me.
She took the ratings war with Good Morning America personally, but couldn’t do much to stem the slide.
|You worry, am I not good enough? Am I not what people need? Am I asking the right questions? When people say negative things or speculate, you can’t help but feel hurt.” — Ann Curry|
Here’s my advice for Ann.
Don’t be so fake. Don’t be such a shill. Don’t be so corporate.
Is this something you really want to be doing?
Find your passion and make a career out of it.
I don’t think being a news reader or morning show host fits you very well. Maybe you should write a book or something.
