bode miller crying

Usually if you make someone cry, the very least you can do is offer a simple "I'm sorry."

Well, apparently NBC never got the memo! This past weekend, reporter Christin Cooper rubbed a lot of people the wrong way when she repeatedly asked Bode Miller about his deceased brother and made him cry in front of the camera!

NBC Olympics executive producer Jim Bell decided to speak out about the controversial, and in his mind there was absolutely nothing wrong with the waterworks:

Ann Curry has had plenty of time to separate herself from the ugly ending that went down at the Today show and has since landed on her feet, but it appears there's still some bad blood brewing between her and NBC!!

Jim Bell, the network producer who allegedly played a big role in having the beleaguered reporter fired, is also serving as

Ann Curry Was MORE POPULAR With Today Show Viewers Than Matt Lauer! ALL THE DEETS From The EXPLOSIVE New York Magazine Article HERE!

matt new york article

It's pretty bad when the actual, behind-the-scenes drama is even WORSE than what's being reported in the news!

But unfortunately, in the case of much-reported-upon, devastating drama on The Today Show that left Ann Curry fired, Matt Lauer looking like a real piece of work, and Good Morning America knocking them out of the ratings for the first time in 16 years, it wasn't just bad - it was a downright CLUSTERF-CK.

On top of the news that came to the light this morning which revealed the widely-criticized news anchor fooled ABC into negotiating a deal he never planned to take to secure his position at NBC, as well as a pay-day and assurance that Ann would get let go, the EXPLOSIVE new article in New York Magazine delves even deeper in the complex back-stabbing, paranoia, and shady negotiations that went on at 30 Rockefeller Center…and it ain't pretty!

For instance, even though Lauer, Today Show executive producer Jim Bell, and several NBC affiliates thought Curry was the problem, there was CLEAR internal research that showed that audiences agreed it was MATT who was the less appealing one, as he came off as "aloof, a little bit holier-than-thou and pompous.”

TODAY Revenge! The Jerk That Fired Ann Curry Gets Fired!

Filed under: TV News

Karma's a bitch, ain't it??

NBC has just fired TODAY executive producer Jim Bell, the genius behind ethnicity cleansing firing Ann Curry.

In the past few Curryless months it's been clear that it was not the female anchor, but the show's mastermind that caused TODAY's massive ratings decline.

Jim's replacement is NBC News VP Alexandra Wallace — who will be the first woman to helm TODAY in its 60-year history. Yay progress!

This switch-up is especially important to Matt Lauer because, according to a show insider, the veteran anchor will have to take "significant pay cut" if the numbers don't come up.

Here's an idea for ratings gold: Bring Ann back!
