    [size=+4] Couric’s Fate Was Topic A in CBS Suite[/size]
    By BILL CARTER and JACQUES STEINBERG

    A wide-ranging discussion in February about Katie Couric’s future as the anchor of the “CBS Evening News” threatened on Thursday to turn her into a virtual lame duck in the job.

    The discussion took place in New York on Feb. 28 and involved four people: Ms. Couric; her agent, Alan Berger of the Creative Artists Agency; Sean McManus, the president of CBS News; and Leslie Moonves, the chairman of CBS. The meeting took place in Mr. Moonves’s office.

    The conversation included what one participant said was some “idle talk and musings” about the big question hanging over CBS News: should Ms. Couric leave her position as the news anchor after the presidential election, a development that had long been rumored.

    No one involved in the meeting or briefed on its particulars would be identified for attribution because of the delicate nature of the talks. But Ms. Couric discussed several things she might do if she left the anchor post, according to the executives, including a daily talk show to be syndicated by CBS, or replacing Larry King in a prime-time position on CNN. (Ms. Couric was said to have dismissed out of hand the suggestion that she could return to morning television on the network’s perennially troubled “Early Show.”)
    ....
    However, rumors from CBS News and reported in the news media may have, inadvertently or not, done what the meeting failed to do: ensured Ms. Couric’s early departure.

    Left Wing Democrat morons at CBS gave this dumpy little ET look alike $15 million a year thinking she could compete with all the new stuff that is out there (cable, bloggers, fox) and now the liberal jerks are shocked that nobody but Phil Donahue & Rosie O'Donnell watch her.

    Cute Perky Katie belongs right where she was, out on the sidewalk making potato salad and hot dogs with Al Roker and slobbering over some drugged up racist hip hopper.

    If she *really* wanted to walk the walk, she'd give 14 mil; who can't live on a paltry $1,000,000 a year!!!!

    A lot of people are totally confounded by the hate that pours onto this site and other blogs daily/hourly toward George Bush and anybody who is to the right of Ted Danson.....er..... Kennedy.

    Except GW is the president. She's not even a pundit. Terrible analogy.

    She talks directly to more people in one day than Bush does in a year. Very apt analogy.

    Don't hate her. Don't put words into my mouth.

    She's a school girl and has the gravitas of a cheerleader.

    Wildo's right, nobody gives a sh!t about her, thats why she's losing her job, who cares, she's another liberal anchor biting the dust, the new world has caught up with her.

    Considering the original poster's documented single-purpose role here of only posting to goose left wingers ... i'm left to ask: Was this thread supposed to upset us somehow?

    In other words: Who gives a shyt?

    Oh, pardon me. :rolleyes:

    I guess because she's a woman and plies her trade using her school-girl giggles, she automatically deserves to be taken seriously??

    Didn't think so.

    Obviously you do not understand Sexism... your comments reveal such.. when is the last time you heard comments about a man that are so condesending.. when you think of it post it.. until then I rest my case.

    Well, you cared enough to chime in on the issue!!!


    :singing:

    Dan Rather, Tom Browkaw, Peter Jennings -- all gone.

    Katy Couric -- on the cusp.

    Maybe the nets will start looking for serious journalists who are not out to grind their own Martha's Vineyard axe?? Time will tell.


    :singing: It's a new day dawning, and the left is in disarray.
