CBS - Katie Couric... In or Out?
cbs47 ^ | 2-8-11 | cakid1

Interesting exchange in an interview with her new Boss.

Is Katie Couric out at CBS?

No one knows, but the new Chairman of CBS News said he doesn't know yet whether Katie Couric wants to stay at the network.

From 'Broadcasting & Cable...'

"What are your thoughts on keeping Katie Couric in the family? Do you think she wants to stay?"

"I don't know whether she does. It's a good question. It's high on the list of things to do to spend some time with Katie to find out what she wants to do and what she sees is best for her and what's best for CBS News. "

"But would you be interested in keeping her around if she wants to stay?"

"I just don't know that she does, so it's a little premature. I look forward to spending some time with her"

Maybe Katie and Keith can do a little morning chat show with the new Huffington Post.

Not long ago I heard Rush mention that KC was supposed to be in Europe somewhere covering the Egypt thing, but he knows where she really was - “soaking up the sun” at South Beach.

If Katie was playing hookie on this important story, maybe she really does want out.

Don’t let the door hit you on the @$$, sweetcheeks!

Don’t kid yourselves. It’ll be a cold day before The Perky One steps away from the camera.

Four of the five major networks spend essentially all their available "news" bandwidth doing everything they can to blow off, kiss off, and piss off every possible conservative viewer in the country. Any objective observer could rationally conclude that this is their top priority and mission statement: do everything possible to alienate anyone who holds a traditional concept of what America is and what being an American means.

Coincidentally, the "news" divisions of four of the five major networks are in financial trouble. They change from one left-wing anchor to another, one left-wing management hierarchy to another, and nothing seems to help. They keep losing audience share every year.

Mysteriously, the one major network that does not spend all it's energy demonstrating to the world how consistently they can mincturate into the eyes of Conservative America, has a news division, FOX News, that's going gangbusters, making money hand over fist. They're cleaning the clocks of every other network, especially in news.

Will the other networks change their approach, perhaps deciding to tilt their editorial point of view even a millionth of a degree closer to the center? Probably not.

No, the formula remains: everything we can do to further the agenda of liberalism in America and throughout the world will be done, no matter what it costs our shareholders. We're On A Mission. It's Bigger Than We Are. Of course we're smaller than we were, and getting smaller every year. But, for some reason, the Formula Can Not Change.

Enquiries are being made.....

Trouble is, it’s Tuesday, and on any Tuesday, no one is drunk enough at any NYC cocktail party to be spreading good intel!

However, tomorrow is another day.

:)

If they wanted her to stay they would’ve talked to her or given her a heads up before the announcement today.

Um... I don’t know.... liberal politics and all things considered... There is something alluring about this picture... And I don’t mean the elf or the drunk in the background either.

Hell, flame away, I don’t care, gotta calls ‘em the way I sees ‘em. ;-)

Report from the Wine and Swine Circuit, (NY’s Wednesday Night TV network cocktail party report)

RE; Katie? No one cares.

Her tenure has been a demi-disaster, and few care if she stays or goes.

When asked about a replacement, the usual answer tonight was: “Somebody.”

Big news in a late night phone call was discussion (guarded) about how fast and deep OWN is tanking.

Prior to this, Oprah was comment-proof. To say anything negative about her was OBVIOUSLY racist (BTW, all the senior-level White women who work for her are at least 80 pounds overweight, and the senior White guys are all gay, but I digress....)

In addition, her daily feed was a great $-maker and an even better demographic lead-in for the local evening news block... so that earned her lots of slack as well.

Since she embraced O-bomber, and he has tanked, it has become very 0k to comment that the Empress Has No Clothes (that fit her.)

If she is smart... and Oprah is VERY smart... she will make a fast but graceful exit, and live off her billions of net worth $.... and about 10,000 calories per day.
