VACATION, I STOP PAYING ATTENTION TO THINGS. IF YOU WANT TO NOT TALK ABOUT
THE NEWS, COME ON VACATION WITH ME.>>ACTUALLY TSOUNDS LIKE YOU
KNEW EVERYTHING, BECAUSE IN YOUR OPENING STATEMENT YOU WERE
PAYING A LOT OF ATTENTION TO WHAT WAS GOING ON. YOU CAUGHT UP FAST.>>Stephen: I CRAMMED LAST
NIGHT. I CRAMMED.>>BUT IT’S HARD.>>Stephen: IT IS. ESPECIALLY RIGHT NOW. THERE’S A LITTLE BITLE BIT OF
DARKNESS OUT THERE.>>SO MUCH DARKNESS. IN ADDITION TO ALL THE
TRAGEDIES, DIFFICULTIES. WE’VE GOT A STORM. AND THEN I REALLY MISS THE
TRUTH. CHEAPER.>>Stephen: SURE, YEAH.>>I MEAN, IT’S BEEN– IT’S BEEN
REALLY– YOU KNOW, I’VE DONE THIS FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS, AND
I CAN TELL YOU THAT EVEN I JUST DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT ANYMORE. IN FACT, I THINK WE NEED TO
SWITCH THINGS UP.>>Stephen: YOU’VE GOT THE NEW
CHO “CHASEY THE CURE.” FIRST OF ALL, EXPLAIN THE IDEA
BEHIND “CHASING THE CURE.”>>IT’S A THING TO PUNCH A HOLE
IN. SOMETIMES PEOPLE ARE SILOED BY
GEOGRAPHY, WHERE THEY LIVE. OBVIOUSLY, BY THEIR MEDICAL
INSURANCE. BUT WE THINK IF YOU CAN TAKE
PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY IN NEED, HAVE BEEN SUFFERING FOR A LONG
PERIOD OF TIME, WITH UNDIAGNOSED, UNDISCLOSED
ILLNESSES, RIGHT, AND YOU PUNCH A HOLE IN THE THING THAT
PREVENTS THEM FROM MEETING THE RIGHT DOCTORS, THE BEST
SPECIALIST, THE RESEARCHERS, AND YOU CAN MAYBE GIVE THEM AN
OPPORTUNITY TO FEEL WELL, WOULDN’T IT BE AN AMAZING THING
TO BE ABLE TO DO? NOW, ONE WOULD THINK, AS A
TELEVISION SERIES, THAT SOUNDS REALLY CRAZY, RIGHT? HOW DO YOU DO THAT?>>Stephen: YES, THAT’S WHAT I
WAS GOING TO ASK YOU, HOW DO YOU DO THAT?>>YES, HOW DO YOU DO THAT? WELL, NOT EASILY. I MEAN, I HAVE PERIODICALLY
THOUGHT I WAS JUST NUTS, STEPHEN, TAKING IT ON. BUT IT’S WORKING. WE ACTUALLY HAD A STORY ABOUT–
JUST LAST WEEK– ABOUT A MOTHER AND A DAUGHTER WHO FOR 12 YEARS
HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A DIAGNOSIS FOR THEIR DISEASE. THEY HAVE SIMILAR SYMPTOMS BUT
NOT THE SAME. AND WHAT HAPPENED IS THAT OUR
PANEL OF DOCTORS RECOMMENDED THEY NOT JUST GET GENETIC
TESTING– AND A BUNCH OF OTHER DOCTORS — BUT GET GENOME
SEQUENCES. WHICH, OH, MY GOSH, FOUND OUT
THAT THEY ARE THE SEVENTH AND EIGHTH PERSON IN THE WORLD TO BE
DIAGNOSED WITH WAR BUG SYNDROME, WHICH —
>>Stephen: WHAT IS WAR BUG SYNDROME.>>IT’S A CRAZY DISEASE THAT
CAUSES HER HANDS TO CLENCH UP. 48 HOURS AFTER THAT FINDING, THE
DOCTORS WHO KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THIS IN NORWAY, GERMANY, ITALY,
AND THE UNITED STATES ARE ALL ON THE PHONE CALL TOGETHER TO TRY
TO FIGURE OUT HOW DO WE MOVE THIS FORWARD AND FIND THOSE
PEOPLE OUT THERE IN THE WORLD WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN DIAGNOSED
WITH THIS, WHO ARE SUFFERING, NOT KNOWING WHAT THEY HAVE.>>Stephen: HOW DO PEOPLE GET
ON YOUR SHOW? BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE
SHOULD GO ON YOUR SHOW.( LAUGHTER ).>>I MEAN, YOU KNOW, GUINTO
CHASEYTHECURE.COM. IT’S A MITZVAH.>>Stephen: YOU’RE A
PHOTOJOURNALIST AS WELL. IT OCCURS TO ME THAT IN THE–
YOU KNOW, WITH DEEP FAKES AND FAKE NEWS AND THE ADJUSTMENT,
THE DIGITAL ADJUSTMENTS OF PHOTOGRAPHY NOW, WHAT IS THE
VALUE OF PHOTO JOURNALISM NOW IN RELATION TO THE TRUTH, NOW THAT
IMAGES CAN BE SO EASILY MANIPULATED?>>YOU KNOW, I THINK IT’S THE
FAITH YOU HAVE IN THE PHOTOGRAPHER TO NOT DO THAT. IT’S REALLY ABOUT TRUST NOW, I
THINK. DO YOU TRUST THIS PERSON’S
PHOTOGRAPH AND THIS WORK? AND I THINK PHOTOGRAPHS HAVE
ENORMOUS POWER EXPHRKS THEY’RE REALLY IMPORTANT. THERE WAS A MOMENT WHEN I WAS IN
A DARFURIAN REFUGEE CAMP, AND I REMEMBER TURNING AROUND AND
SEEING A LITTLE BOY WHO WAS DRESSED IN RAGS. AND YOU COULD SEE FROM HIS FACE
THAT HE WAS TRAUMATIZED. YOU KNOW, THEY WERE VICTIMS OF
GENOCIDE. I TURNED AROUND, AND
INSTINCTIVELY I LIFTED MY CAMERA TO TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH, AND I
CLICKED. AND THEN BEING CATHOLIC, YOU
KNOW, AND EVERYTHING ELSE, I JUST FELT GUILTY. HOW COULD I TAKE THIS PICTURE OF
THIS PERSON IN THIS MOMENT? AND THEN I PUT DOWN MY CAMERA,
AND I STARTED TALKING TO THE KIDS, AND THEY ALL SORT OF
WALKED AWAY. AND THEN A MAN WHO WAS RELATED–
WHO WAS ALSO A DARFURIAN REFUGEE LOOKED UP ME AND SAID, YOU KNOW,
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THEIR PHOTOGRAPH, BECAUSE THEN NOW NO
ONE CAN SAY WE DIDN’T EXIST. THEY WILL KNOW THAT WE WERE
HERE.” THERE IS TREMENDOUS POWER IN
IMAGES. AND IT’S REALLY ABOUT DO YOU
TRUST THE PERSON TAKING IT? AND I THINK WE HAVE AN
OBLIGATION, AND THOSE OF US WHO ARE IN JOURNALISM AND THOSE OF
US WHO DO WHAT YOU DO WHO TALK ABOUT FACTS. WE HAVE TO ADHERE AND BE WORTHY
OF TELLING THE TRUTH. THAT’S THE JOB.>>Stephen: DON’T TRUST ME. DON’T TRUST ME, PLEASE. ANN, SO LOVELY TO SEE YOU.>>I TRUST YOU.>>Stephen: “CHASING THE CURE”
AIRS THURSDAY NIGHTS ON TNT AND TBS. ANN CURRY, EVERYBODY! WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK.

  1. The irony is that most repugnicunts what to get rid of Obama care. When the majority of people on it are from the red states. They hate Obama Care, yet sing praises about the ACA. Work that one out? These people are such uneducated idiots.

  2. Actually it's not great medical care – look up international rankings. Also John Oliver explained just a week ago why it sucks for at least 50% of the population.

  3. I've been on vacation since January 1. I am a political junkie, but I think I would stroke out if I kept watching the news. I'll have to find her show, Ann is an amazing human being.

  4. Why was her interview so heavily edited and cut short? We love Ann Curry, and would have loved to hear more from her. LSSC, please release an extended version.

  5. Ann Curry should be Biden’s VP…..she’s perfect. I’d say President, but I’m worried about the fringies. We have to win. Elizabeth Warren can be something super-useful in that Admin but Ann is charismatic. We need her now. ….Just an idea. I love Elizabeth. …Just desperately thinking….

  6. I've never seen her shows ( cuz I live in Europe) but she sounds like a genuine good person. And as a society we should definitely always demand the truth from the ones who provide it !

  7. He chose his words oddly carefully in the beginning… that was weird. 🤨

    This also felt super rehearsed for her, like she studied exactly what she was going to say to everything beforehand.

    Felt kinda fake. 🤷‍♂️

  8. Ann Curry, corporate media slut, is so full of shit, corporate media has never told the truth, it is just getting worse.

  9. Truth in photography. I still think of the kids walking out of the death camps, the woman pleading for help to get on to the deportation train, the old woman with the 3 kids walking bent over to the gas chamber and that Vietnamese girl running, crying after the napalm attack on her village. Photographers and photography are so important.

  10. Ann Curry is so underrated, beautiful and smart, I want to punch a hole into Today's bosses and especially Matt Lauer for the treatment of this fine, honest, morally responsible woman. I miss her.

  11. I would’ve chosen her over Matt Lauer.
    I don’t understand how they let her go and kept a sexual predator in their office.
    Curry exudes class and sincerity. Lauer just makes my skin crawl.

  12. Who ever dresses Ann for this interview needs to b slapped upside the back up the head this beautiful woman and you put a clown costume on her and highlight her beauty in zero ways shame

  13. Preventive Health Care taught in schools from the grammar school ages. Teach people about their bodies and how to take care of them. And hold those responsible for abusing their health. Super high taxes on tobacco and alcohol, and higher health care costs for those who use and abuse themselves with them.

  14. This interview was too short, what’s up? Ann Curry, one of the most trusted and heart warming journalists, needs more time, people.

  15. Ann Curry I realy miss the truth Stephen Colbert changes the subject realy fast. Remimber this scum with his husband or wife, not sure how they describe thier relationship, Colbert and Jon Steward spread lies and propaganda then bragged about it, after being called out for it. Colbert is nothing but a propaganda mouth piece for the communist party of China and you people beleave evry word this traitor says.

  16. We have the capability of having the best healthcare in the world, but the reality is that we don't. For healthcare to be the best, it must be accessible TO ALL! Most politicians are trying to 'fix' the problem by applying a bandaid. It's going to take more than a quick fix. We need an entirely new program. It must be a one-payer system and it must be available to all. How ridiculous is it that my insurance costs $1200/month? Only the wealthiest people can afford this premium; I certainly cannot. Thanks at least for Obama Care, but my policy covers ALMOST NOTHING! We need a completely new approach to this very important issue.

  17. I believe her "punch a hole in it" theory has already been addressed. There is a series called "Diagnosis" that uses the internet and a doctor who knows how to put those patient scenarios out there to reach the professionals who have encountered it, no matter what country they live in. A very interesting series on Netflix now. I was amazed by it, and I work in the medical field.

  18. I am sorry Mrs Curry but researchers do not cure patients. Everything else you said makes perfect sense and I support your case because we here in Europe have a really healthy health care system and your country has just f*ed up medical care for the average and poor people.
