Posted on 02/03/2010 9:17:24 AM PST by Nachum
Katie Couric may be getting a taste of her own populist medicine. When the Dow hit 10,000 last October, she (and other network news personalities) used the opportunity to bemoan massive payments to Wall Street bankers. But now the populist sentiment has turned on her. She faces dramatic pay cuts as CBS News downsizes
Couric, shown in a, er, file photo at right, "makes enough to pay 200 news reporters $75,000 a year! It's complete insanity," one CBS News insider told the Drudge Report. "We report with great enthusiasm how much bankers are making, how it is out of step with reality during a recession. Well look at Katie!"
The employee was referring to Couric's roughly $14 million annual salary, the highest in network news. That salary may be cut dramatically in the face of massive layoffs at CBS News branches in Washington, San Francisco, Miami, London, Los Angeles and Moscow

Imagine taking a $14m haircut and nobody watches.
Well, I’ll give her this: She’s got really nice legs.
Katie used to be the beltway reporter for WRC-TV in DC. I don’t think her talent has moved too far from the starting line.
As Joe Paterno says: “You either get better or you get worse.”
I haven’t watched WRC since they made Jim Vance the anchor.
And that was 35 years ago.
Serves her right !
PS. Note to leftist lunatics...less rich people = less taxes paid. No fuzzy math here! We middle classers will get soaked by Obamanomics.
PLUS hit her with higher fed taxes and higher NY taxes and higher NYC taxes. I wonder if she will still be so positive about Rats.
LMAO! Good one!
WHoopi Goldberg was ranting about this exact same thing last year too.
Dang! I'm gonna haf ta cut down (hick) on da booze.
I hear she gives good live colonoscopy as well.
Two Americas ...
I'm Katie Couric and I'm a Cougar. I'm hungry, bring me a Jonas Brother or Zach Efron.
Maybe she gets all that money because she was “perky” with Les Moonves.
Since I dumped TV in ‘97, I only know her as the woman who did a hatchet job on Palin.
At only 7 mill per year Katie is still 100X above her pay grade.
$50.00 for the evening -—tops.
Her contract is up in a year and the price can be renegotiated then. Maybe to about $2000 per week or so...
