Ann Curry Tweet to Robin Roberts: Denied by NBC!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Another day, another story that paints NBC is especially bad light.

Following reports that Matt Lauer nearly left for ABC, and that he REALLY did not get along well with Ann Curry, a new snippet of Joe Hagan's New York magazine piece has been leaked.

And we'd love to hear NBC's response to it.

  • Ann Curry on the Red Carpet
  • Fancy Robin Roberts

After Curry was fired from Today - yet still employed by the network, which "created a situation of spectacular awkwardness," Hagan writes - the reporter wanted to "tweet a note of sympathy" to Robin Roberts in light of her treatment for MDS.

But "NBC said no," the article states. "[The network was] afraid she was trying to aid the enemy."

Curry has remained silent in light of these breaking scoops, which continue to prove how inept NBC has been over the past few months.

And viewers have seemingly taken note: Ratings for The Today Show has been slumping for week. It is now regularly beaten by Good Morning America, with both Curry and Roberts considered media darlings.

NBC? Not so much.

NBC deserves the low ratings. Curry is class at its finest. Lauer...not so much.

That whole "aiding the enemy" thing is so ridiculous if it is true. How offensive of the network to forbid a note of sympathy for Robin Roberts. If anything, it would paint Ann in a flattering light if she were to publicly show concern or support for Roberts. It's not about working on competing networks. Robin has been such a strong, inspirational media personality while struggling with her MDS, and Ann being told she can't say so or wish her well is terrible. More and more, NBC is showing such unbelievable unprofessionalism that it borders on total incompetence and I'm glad people are aware and voting with their views. Ann Curry isn't the reason for the ratings slip. It's clearly much higher up where the problems start. Faulty leadership and decision-making, selfish overly corporate mindset, comfortable cockiness. The leaders at NBC let their game slip so there's nobody to blame (I'm looking at you, Matt Lauer) for the lost viewership but themselves.
