Skip to comments.CBS News Collapses As Katie Couric Heads For The Door (New round of layoffs expected this fall)
Posted on 09/01/2010 9:39:04 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
With a new round of layoffs expected this fall, CBS News is being trimmed to the bone. Rebecca Dana on the dramatic drop in ratings, strange BlackBerry blackouts, and eager suitors for anchor Katie Couric.
On Monday, Katie Couric begins her fifth, and quite possibly final, year of hard labor as anchor of the CBS Evening News.
However she chooses to mark the occasion, it will no doubt be more subdued than the tears, dancing, and $10 million promotional campaign that attended her debut on Sept. 5, 2006.

Hard labor??? Good God.
No wonder this country's news is in the toilet...

TITLE : Katie Couric Blames CBS For Crappy Ratings
she’s been in there for 4 full years? Seems like 2 years max. Where does the time go?
Three months. That’s all I would have given her.
It was obvious after the second week where this was headed.
Couric basically destroyed CBS evening news. I tried watching it to see what was going on that first week. In fact, I recorded it to DVD.
It was comical to see her break into the solid news reports to deliver a touchy-feely segment. It would be a profile on some leftist nonsense or another. Women who don’t really care for watching the news, were supposed to find this appealing. Men couldn’t watch it, and women who didn’t like watching news weren’t going to tune in to watch one segment either.
Nice work Katie. Couldn’t have done better if I had spent the same amount of time trying to discredit CBS News.
I didn’t watch See-BS News before Katie, I’m not watching it with Katie, and I won’t watch it after Katie.
Good riddance to Katie Courva.
who is Katie gonna worship, once she is no longer in the limelight?
Maybe they could reorganize and try reporting the news. I hear the market is wide open.
So you can be a miserable failure by any objective measure and have a line of “eager suitors” begging you to come fail for them?
and the “media titans” wonder why fewer and fewer people pay any attention to them
Hey SeeBS, I have a great idea! Hire some retread from CNN to replace her. how about campbell brown, she doesn’t have much going.
CBS = Couric Bull SH!T
CONSERVATIVE Broadcast System...just imagine the ratings...
Two words come to mind...rat and ship.
I firmly believe in karma, what goes around comes around.
I’m getting tired of waiting for Katie’s time to go around.
She’s like the Black Plague...every where the cheer leader goes, people get cut.
Perhaps her last day she’ll reminisce and show the high point of her time on TV.
Her live TV colonoscopy.
No wonder the stock market is up big today. Good news will do this.
