Meanwhile, NBC President Noah Oppenheim once again vehemently denied claims made in Farrow's book and provided the network's comments on Lonner's claims and Curry's involvement, according to a staff-wide memo released by Oppenheim Monday and obtained by FOX Business.

There was "a general sense of meanness" on the set of the morning show, New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter writes in his book, Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, which is excerpted in New York Times Magazine.
In an interview this week with Business Insider, Stelter discussed his new book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV and placed much of the blame for Today's ratings drop and Curry's firing at the feet of the supposedly disappointing host herself.
The presence of sexism in 30 Rockefeller's hallowed halls is undeniable in Stelter's side anecdote about the rise of "Morning Joe." Once MSNBC officially picked up the political morning talk show, it designated Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist as co-hosts in their contracts, while Mika Brzezinski's was treated as a generic MSNBC contributor, despite Scarborough's insistence that she was a crucial element on the show ("the first time in history that a solo host of a program wanted a cohost," remarked one MSNBC exec). When he discovered that even after two years she was getting paid 1/14 of him, Scarborough insisted she be given a hefty bonus. Brzezinski, at first frustrated with Scarborough's interference, ultimately negotiated a raise and a contract upgrade herself, as she recounted in her own book "All Things at Once."
My conclusions, to be found in Agincourt: A New History (2005, new end 2015), are dramatic. The English were undoubtedly 'happy' but by no means 'few'. They had between 8,500 and 9,000 at the battle whilst the French had only a few thousand more at most. The chronicle accounts of the battle are what we would today call 'spin'. I have analysed this in detail in my The Battle of Agincourt: Sources and Interpretations (2000, 2009, now e book), which also includes translations of all the key texts. I have also looked at why the battle has meant so much over the six centuries since it occurred (Great Battles. Agincourt, OUP, 2015).
We won three-year research grant (2006-9) from the Arts and Humanities Research Council to investigate The Soldier in the Later Middle Ages, 1369-1453. The Research Assistants on the project were Dr Andy King, a specialist on the Anglo-French border wars, and Dr David Simpkin, who has worked on the armies of Edward I and Edward II. The project student, Adam Chapman, studied for a PhD on the contribution of the Welsh to 'English' armies and his book The Welsh Soldier came out in 2015 (Boydell).
Our aim was to create a database of all known soldiers, not simply those serving in France, and to use it to examine whether we could speak of professional soldiers in this period. There has been a tendency to say that this was something which began in the early modern period but our book (The Soldier in Later Medieval England, OUP 2013. This is also available as an e-book) reveals how well developed it was in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries/
I also worked on the battle of Bosworth in connection with the HLF project which identified its new location. The book of the project (Bosworth: A Battlefield Rediscovered, by Glenn Foard and Anne Curry, was published by Oxbow books in 2013).
"Curry has written a brilliant history that shows us how the narrative of crop diversity loss is itself jam-packed with troubling worldviews. . . .Endangered Maize is an enormously useful book, and one that will shape conversations about agricultural and human diversity for many years to come."
I've always been interested in the tools and techniques behind the foods we eat. My 2016 book Evolution Made to Order: Plant Breeding and Technological Innovation in Twentieth Century America traces the history of several early technologies used to modify genes and chromosomes, including their application as novel methods of plant breeding. You can learn more in a review of the book that was published in Science in November 2016 or my interview with the New Books Network. This research featured in the virtual reality game Seed, which allows players to tinker with plants and genes just like the amateur plant breeders I've written about.
Ann Curry appears as one of the four presenters in the Today Show, along with Al Roker, Matt Lauer, and Meredith Vieira. They interview Butters Stotch and his parents, for supposedly writing the horrifically vulgar and disgusting book The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs.
