Katie Cronkite: Good Night, and Good Pluck...
Katie Couric is getting $15M ($60K/day) to head over to CBS...good for her.
Is she liberal enough to replace Dan "I'm sticking to my story" Rather? We'll see.
The Media Research Center covers her "Years of Liberal Tilt" here.
This story about the 15 page "briefing book" resume to help the press tout her serious news qualifications is interesting. Howard Kurtz got the memo:
"After a 15-year run at Today in which Couric has interviewed everyone from President Bush, Tony Blair and Colin Powell to Bill Gates, Donald Trump and O.J. Simpson, her hard-news background is hardly in doubt."Looks like Katie's replacement sure seems liberal enough for the Today show.
Not sure why I care enough to post on this anyway. I guess it will be interesting to see how it all pans out...like slowing down to see the car crash on the side of the road.
