The Today Show: The Ballad of Ann Curry
Problems All The Time: The problems with Ann Curry and Matt Lauer being co-anchors seemed to start at the very being. It seems that Matt was nursing crushes from his escaped earlier co-hosts Katie Couric and Meredith Vieira (the second Katie.) Despite the fact that Ann and Matt had been working together for 16 years, and sometimes as co-anchors, Lauer seemed to believe that the chemistry was a work-in-progress. Yeah right.
My Take 1: If I put on my sleuthing cap, I'd say that Lauer has a subtle disdain for Ann. It's clear in their his remarks that Lauer preferred a brother-sister relationship like the one he had with Katie Couric and Meredith Vieira. The reason why this didn't happen might be chalked up to many reasons, one of which being, Matt Lauer is a "racists." Yeah I said it, "racists." Or maybe Curry doesn't satiate Lauer's pointless and annoying "sibling ribbing" chemistry that typified his mornings with Katie and Meredith. Yep, he's that provincial.
