NBC’s Ann Curry Calls Capitalism Unfair

Posted by Steve Markowitz on May 10, 2012

Last month NBC’s Ann Curry publicly said what many Progressives try to camouflage.  Specifically, she proffered the view that it is unfair for some Americans have more than others.  Her dribble included:

  • “…there’s an inherent unfairness to it….it’s about those with money having an easier life than those who don’t. And there’s something fundamentally unfair about that.”
  • “…not everyone has access to being able to get money, to work for money….until America becomes fair in terms of how able people are – can be to make money, until the playing field is fair, it is unfair.”

When NBC’s weatherman Al Roker then asked of Curry: “But don’t we also teach our kids, in a sense, life isn’t always fair,” she retorted that America must first level “playing field.”

While Curry professes concern for those that have less, she and her husband maintain two houses and travels first class on airlines.  If truly worried about leveling the playing field, Curry would start by sharing her wealth with those that have less than she.  On this matter, Curry has much in common with Warren Buffett who wants to level the playing field by taking money from others and redistributing it.

Curry’s logic is flawed on many levels.  Taking it to the extreme, those of us who were not blessed with great height or athletic skills should have the opportunity to play in the NBA.  To offset our “disabilities”, we should be given special dispensation to level the field on the basketball court.  Come to think of it, this logic is inevitably where Curry in a Progressive friends would take us.
