The frequently-maudlin Ann Curry outdid herself on Wednesday’s Today show. Narrating a short video item about Russia unveiling a new set of inflatable weapons designed to fool spy satellites, Curry chirped: “Wish all weapons were like that.” (Video below the fold.)
Her flower-child moment brought to mind how another morning show anchor, ABC’s Charles Gibson, confided to Larry King shortly after the 2003 invasion of Iraq how he and his wife had “a little framed sign hanging in our bedroom, my wife and I, that said, ‘War is not good for children and other living things,’ and I believe that. So I don’t like covering war and I hate to see them occur.”
Fortunately, some more modern journalists are a bit more practical when it comes to these matters than the helium-filled Curry.
