NBC Wouldn't Let Curry Tweet Support for Robin Roberts

When ABC's Robin Roberts returned to the air just 5 months after a bone marrow transplant, everyone was happy to return.

It was an amazing story of a woman that had courage and the fight to take on a procedure that quite frankly is often fatal to the patient.

When Roberts was leaving GMA to have her transplant, the ousted Today Anchor wanted to show her support in some small way. She wanted to send out a Tweet to her million plus followers showing Roberts that she was in her thoughts.

It was another class act by Ann Curry, but it was never seen by her followers or anyone else.

NBC pulled the plug on the Tweet.

NY Magazine says that Curry asked NBC if she could tweet a note of sympathy for the ABC co-host? NBC said no, afraid she was trying to aid the enemy.

Really?! We are talking about a tweet to a woman that was going through a procedure that had fairly good odds that she might not even live through.... and NBC said "No!"

Proving that ratings are more important to NBC than life itself. 

And yet NBC still wonders why they are dead last in the ratings.
