'Today Show' to drop Ann Curry

The New York Times reports that Curry, who replaced Meredith Vieira as co-anchor on NBC's morning show "Today" last year, is on her way out, with a decision coming as early as next week. According to the Times, NBC executives are negotiating with Curry in an effort to find a different position for her, possibly as a foreign correspondent. The Times' Brian Stelter writes that Curry, who is reluctant to give up the position that she assumed a mere year ago, has hired attorney Robert Barnett, who represented Christiane Amanpour during her exit from ABC News' "This Week," to represent her in the negotiations. Bing: 'Today' vs. 'GMA' Barnett has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment. "She got her dream job, and she doesn't want to let it go," one source told the Times. The negotiations reportedly began several weeks ago. A spokeswoman for NBC declined to comment. Tell us on Facebook: Should 'Today' drop Ann Curry? One source told the Times that the network is hoping to complete Curry's departure by the Summer Olympics, which kick off in July, so the network -- which is airing the Olympics -- can move forward to the Games with a clean slate. "They feel real pressure to get it done by the Olympics," the individual said. If NBC does decide to replace Curry on "Today," concerns about waning ratings could be at the heart of it. In April, "Good Morning America" beat "Today" in total viewership for a full week, the first time that "GMA" could claim such a victory in 16 years.

Mississippi Man Files $6 Million Slander Lawsuit Against K-K-K Member

A Mississippi man is seeking financial compensation from Ku Klux Klan member Edgar Ray Killen, for slander and defamation. In the suit, filed in the Hinds County Circuit Court Monday (June 19), James Stern, states that Killen, plus Killen's wife and lawyer, seek to ruin his reputation with statements made about a land transfer, and book and movie rights. Stern served time with Killen at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman, and would converse since their cells were near one another. During his time behind bars for mail fraud, Stern claims that Killen admitted to taking part in civil rights killings, and signed over his power of attorney right to his lawyer and wife. Stern was hoping to turn his conversations with Killen into a book and movie deal, and alleges that the reformed Klansman “unexpectedly signed over the deed to his 40-acre property,” to Stern's nonprofit organization Racial Reconciliation. One of Killen's lawyer, Rover Ratliff is crying foul, telling the media that Stern has no right to the land. In short, Stern claims his character was defamed by Ratliff, when he accused him of taking advantage of the 87-year-old who is serving 60-year sentence, and suffers from a brain injury. According to Stern all three parties involved “have made public remarks that are totally untrue, with evil malicious harmful intent to do the reputation and character of the plaintiff unrepairable harm.” While he is acting as his own lawyer, Stern told the Associated Press that he will drop the suit, if Ratliff apologizes.
