Skip to comments.A Scoop Regarding the Rathergate Report and CBS News
Posted on 12/22/2004 9:20:57 AM PST by gopwinsin04
A little biride familiar with discussions at CBS News tells me that the network suits will announced Dan Rather's replacement the day they release the report about the faked memos.
I guess the aim is to distract from the bad news by creating two headlines instead og just one.
It's called Karma.
It will serve to illustrate that the two are linked.
What was the perky Katie story?
what is the katie couric story?
KATIE COURIC = DAN RATHER
CBS said they were going after Katie's contract yesterday..
what IS the katie couric story?
And What do you mean by that?
Who is CBS?
Hopefully they will dump her.
So basically are you saying KC will replace Rather?
...longtime LIBERAL Los Angeles Times Media Critic DAVID SHAW still tells us that:
RATHER's work 'Shoddy, Slipshod' not LIBERAL..?
I am waiting for the day that DOJ announces they have ARRESTED
The hell with CBS's investigation
Is this Katie Couric from some 2oth century TeeVee shows? I heard about her in journalism school, I think. I didn't know there is still some interest in the old Big Media Industry
I can't see Katie turning into a news-reader.
On her morning gig, she gets the chance for live interviews. Those give her the opportunity to ask her infamous editorialized questions.
On a 30-minute news broadcast, she would only occasionally have that opportunity to do interviews.
I just can't picture her accepting such a confining position, unless CBS gave her editoral control or some such additional power.
My thoughts exactly. This seems a stupid move on somebody's part-- or a brilliant one, depending on who's making the decisions.
I can't believe they would name her as Rather's replacement. Outside of Carville, I can't think of anybody that I would NEVER EVER watch to report the news if this was the only news I could get. I might have checked on election night when flicking through the channels to see how Dan looked and how he was spinning; Katie - NEVER because I know what she would look like and how she would be unable to hide how bitter and bent-out-of-shape she would be. This has to be a joke or a suicidal call for help from CBS.
Katie Couric???? I thought she died of bowel cancer. By the way--Yassar Arafat is dead, and she cried.
Almost time for dinner.
The only difference is Blather could (and would) lie with a straight face and Perky katie lets her bitterness with conservatives and her worshipping of the anti Americans shine through. She cries when we capture or kill terrorists or Palestinians die and smirks when she can report an anti Bush story. It's the only difference.
