ANN Curry has been banned from talking to the media.
Staffers at TODAY are furious about the latest interview Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, and Al Roker gave to New York Magazine, trying to drum up ratings, while Curry, is being treated at the “evil step-sister” because the network has muzzled her and won’t let her speak to the media.
“When is enough going to be enough? What is the publicity department at NBC thinking?” a source said.
“This strategy of having Matt Lauer go public and speaking out about Ann being fired from the show, only proves to the public that he never liked her, and did get her ousted! The interview the cast did with New York Magazine has confirmed viewers suspicions about how truly bad things are right now with TODAY.
“Meanwhile Curry isn’t allowed to talk to the media. Numerous media outlets have wanted to interview Curry, but every single one has been told she isn’t available. It’s just not fair to Ann. If Matt is going to go out and bring up stuff from the past that includes Ann, they should at least have the decency to let her respond.
“When are the suits at the network going to get it, the problem is Matt Lauer. Rolling Matt out to do media interviews trying to spin it in ratings disaster and fallout from Ann Curry’s demotion is just pissing the crew off. Many of them are saying TODAY is a s**t show. Quit the spin, and get rid of Lauer, and watch how quickly things change in the ratings!”
