I have nothing against the new co-host, but in my eyes, Ann Curry is a great person, ans if she didnt meet the standards for Matt Lauer or any other on the show, then maybe he, matt should be replaced also! And where did you people leave Ann? Under your foot? Ann is too true a person to have been treated this way!!!!

Ann Curry actually shown an awful side to her nature, during coverage of the Trayvon Martin case....one morning, she interviewed Trayvon's parents and their lawyer and was sweet as sugar and so demure, i've seen rowdier funeral directors.....the next morning, she interviewed George Zimmerman's lawyer and best friend, and she became a poisonous viper, with an evil attitude and rude, accusatory and demeaning, as hell....I must not have been the only one to notice the difference....my opinion of her, changed forever.....

so she was sympathetic to the victim's family and tough on the killer. Hmmm sounds like a good journalist to me.

That's how companies work these days.Doesn't matter how hard you work,or your loyalty.They'll drop you like a bag of sirt on a whim.It's not personal,they just don't care. The bottom line for the majority of companies is that dollar bill.

Here's a news flash: OJ Simpson, Casey Anthony, Robert Blake, Lizzy Borden, Jack the Ripper and George Zimmerman are murder who deserve no coutesy. Ann Curry is a great journalist. Surely you were just joking suggesting that Imwas wrong. Your too funny. LOL.
