Mainstream scream: Couric pleas, When will I be loved? [Video available for masochists]
The Examiner ^ | 29 May 2012 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 05/29/2012 11:56:39 AM PDT by seanmerc

Our weekly look at the loudest screech from the mainstream media features former CBS News anchor Katie Couric, giving the commencement at the University of Virginia, claiming to have been cheated by sexists.

She said, “One of the problems with being a trailblazer is, sometimes you get burned. In those first few months at CBS, TV critics wrote about my clothes, my hair, my makeup, even the way I held my hands. Some said I lacked ‘gravitas,' which I've since decided is Latin for ‘testicles.'...My story may have played out in the public eye, but it's by no means unique. Every one of you will at some point be confronted by naysayers and learn that life isn't always fair. You'll feel cheated, you'll be mistreated. You'll wonder, when will I be loved?’”

Didn’t Couric get pushed out by another woman?

For the $15M or whatever she was paid every year for zip talent she should thank her lucky stars and shut her yapper.

Well yes Katie, guess what, your liberal friends ARE big hypocrites. They ARE sexists, and worse.

There’s a lot of room on the right side of the aisle, Katie. Ever think of knocking on Fox’s door?

Why yes, as a matter of fact she did. However, please don’t confuse The Perky One with facts. She will not allow them to stand in the way of her public proclamations.

If this bimbo had spoken at my commencement I would have gotten up and walked out. It's easy to see how much she has in common with Obozo - "me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me"

And if you had it, you'd know what the word 'gravitas' actually means.

Don’t make me laugh. Couric, a trailblazer? Of what?

Definitely not ‘a journalist’ (in the old sense).

She was paid at least 100 times as much as an actual journalist; entirely on the basis of her looks, her hairdo, her clothes ... all the things she now claims to be offended about.

I could just picture a strange kind of Purgatory or Limbo with such whiners. Guy Williams, Tina Louise and Katie Couric would all be there. Suzanne Sommers, Leonard Nimoy, Farrah Fawcett-Majors and Pernell Roberts were there for a while, but eventually worked through their issues.

She earned $15 million a year for three or four years.
Assume she got half this amount after taxes.

What, exactly, is her bitch ?

Some said I lacked ‘gravitas,'which I've since decided is Latin for ‘testicles.'

Sorry they used such a long word, they shouldn't have made you guess at what it means like that. I think what they meant was you lack "class"...

Dear Katie Caustic,

“some” people want to know what you ever did that was worth 15 mil a year to begin with? You were a looser from day one.

You and Danny Blather would make a great team, one with no brain and the other with no facts.

Boo frickin’ hoo.

Hey Katie, did you EVER think maybe you didn’t succeed because you WEREN’T A REAL NEWS ANCHOR? Maybe if you’d been a teeeeeeeeeensy bit “fair and balanced” (I know you’ve heard that phrase), then you might have been accomodated by the market. People LIKE f and b, Katie. They’re watching f and b MORE than all competing networks combined.

And let’s face it, Katie—the only reason, you and I both know, that the alphabet networks have giant audiences is because of their GRIP over programming for decades....

You coulda been a contender, Katie. You could’ve been THE ONE to bring a modicum of equity to the dying evening network newscasts. You started off a bit promising—remember interviewing Rush Limbaugh your first WEEK in the anchor chair?

But alas, you threw all pretense of balance to wind, and just became another liberal mouthpiece, copying what the New York Times thought was important, and thus you are now gone.

Hopefully some young people can learn from your mistakes.

You'll feel cheated, you'll be mistreated. You'll wonder, when will I be loved?’”

When will I be loved? by Phil Everly, sung by Linda Ronstadt

I've been cheated
Been mistreated
When will I be loved

I've been pushed down
I've been pushed 'round
When will I be loved

When I find a new man
That I want for mine
He always breaks my heart into
It happens every time

I've been made blue
I've been lied to
When will I be loved

When I find a new man
That I want for mine
He always breaks my heart into
It happens every time

Oh, I've been cheated
Been mistreated
When will I be loved
When will I be loved
Tell me, when will I be loved

Katie, do you remember Barbara Walters? She was few decades ago. If anyone was a pioneer, she was, not you.

Contemporary of both Katy (agewise, just 8 months older) and Barbwa (career wise) was Australian Robin Schebatsky lookalike, Jana Wendt

News co-anchor at 24, two years later she was interviewing Muammar Gaddafi for Australian 60 minutes. No-one ever called her "perky" or said she "lacked gravitas" and she never asked anyone what kind of twee they would be.

In the politcal interviewing game the interviewer's job is to get answers or at least make it plain the pol is being evasive. The politician's job is to be evasive without looking so. Australian Liberal leader John Howard was a Master of doing this while making the interviewer look as if they hadn't understood the answer. Jana was Mistress of making it cleat the question hadn't been answered. Her interviews with him were a joy to behold, neither ever won but the footwork was delightful.

Almost as delightful as seeing her go against a foreign politician who was expecting a Couric and never considered why Jana was known a "The Perfumed Steamroller"

Her story is she used the implacable icequeen style to control herself as she is an inveterate giggler.

Some evidence of this may be "interviwer meltdown with Robin Williams".

20 years later - still on Youtubes http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DNOdDfc_5Jyc>

Katy

You'll feel cheated, you'll be mistreated. You'll wonder, when will I be loved?’
Katy, Machiavelli pointed out long ago, the way to respect, even admiration, is not love, it's fear.

She got to where she is by being perky and fairly attractive. She's 55 now, and her looks are being maintained by massive amounts of makeup and other means. She knows she's almost done, and will have to move aside for the next perky one.
