Barbara's career began in 1974 as an anchor on NBC's Today. She would later become the first female to anchor a network evening newscast. A fascinating woman and an astonishing career.
Job well done, Barbara! Let the victory lap begin!

Because seriously, who didn't see this coming?! By now we've all watched Charles Ramsey's YouTube interviews explaining how he was able to rescue three women and a young daughter from being held hostage in an Ohio house for a decade. Ramsey is without question a hero, and he deserves every minute of fame that's coming his way… which is why we're sharing the auto-tuned version of his interviews on WT411.
Way to go Charles! And way to go ladies! And may Ariel Castro and his brothers rot in hell.

Ben Affleck is putting his money where his mouth is, literally. The Oscar winner has agreed to Global Poverty Project's Live Below the Line campaign, which challenges people to live below the poverty line for five days. That means living on only $7.50 for the entire five days, or $1.50 a day.
Affleck tweeted the news to his followers, "1.4 billion people live on less than $1.50/day. I'm joining Live #BelowTheLine on behalf of @easterncongo. Will you?" Well, will ya?

It's no secret that Ann Curry wasn't treated the way she shoulda been by NBC and The Today Show. Working on the show for some 15 years, NBC gave her the boot last summer after ratings declined with her in the co-anchoring role opposite Matt Lauer. In a new book titled Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, New York Times writer Brian Stetler says Ann was put through hell by her former bosses at Today. A source with access to the book tells RadarOnline that the book vindicates Ann and demonizes both NBC and Lauer.
The book hits stores next week. To read more about the book, click on the link.

But perhaps Fred Rogers said it best: "When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'"

Visiting Amsterdam over the weekend, Justin Bieber paid a visit to the Anne Frank House, the home of the Jewish wartime diarist. The home features several hidden rooms which allowed Anne and her family to hide from Nazi persecution until their capture in 1944. Thousands of tourists come to pay their respects to Anne who eventually died at the age of 15 due to typhus. But Justin Bieber... he came to ask for Anne's respect.
The Anne Frank House's Facebook account said Bieber signed the guest book: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."
Justin -- this ISN'T about you. UNREAL.

It's been less than four months since the Sandy Hook tragedy left 27 dead in Newtown, Connecticut. So understandably, many are upset at Glee's episode last night after it depicted a shooter at McKinley High. The episode began with a disclaimer reading, "This episode of Glee addresses the topic of school violence. Viewer discretion is advised."
Newtown parents are saying the episode is too soon. One parent told NBC, "This close to the tragedy without any warning, I believe was inconsiderate." The Newton superintendent of schools issued a warning to parents regarding the show's content prior to its airing.
Where do you stand? It's important to educate ourselves on the dangers of school violence, but there's also an element of Glee dramatizing it for ratings…
