Full Title: Katie Couric felt pummeled at CBS News, resented by coworkers for $15M salary and unfriendly personality: new book
In excerpts of Sheila Wellers highly anticipated book The News Sorority obtained by the Daily News, resentment towards Katie Couric was immediate upon her arrival to CBS News. According to Weller, Couric compared herself to Hillary Clinton, received a large salary while others were asked to take pay cuts, and failed to make friends with former CBS staffers who described her as abrasive.
Poor Katie get her some Kleenex and a wrinkle-free pantsuit.
TV star Katie Couric took such a beating in the press after she jumped ship to CBS she started comparing herself to Hillary Clinton, a new book says. The steep drop in popularity that followed Courics exit from NBCs Today show in 2006 left her full of self-pity, according to author Sheila Weller.

Oh, I thought it was because she wasn’t very good.
Or for $300 an hour over at NBC, for example?
“TV star Katie Couric took such a beating in the press after she jumped ship to CBS she started comparing herself to Hillary Clinton, a new book says.”
Yeah, I guess she is similar. Bitching and moaning that her rich ass isn’t kissed nonstop.
Howdy Doody Clinton gets $600 grand for doing nothing, cheerleader Couric gets $15 million. Amazing how liberals are willing to go full out capitalism to push the commie myth.
Pulling down 15 million just to be a loud mouthed liberal ‘RAT SHOULD be a brutal experience.
it isn’t capialism. it’s crony payback. it’sfor being good liberals.
I always thought she went down hill after her husband died. I think that made her bitter. I feel bad that she went through that. It took a very long time for her to get over the death. She recently remarried but probably still feels her late husband is her soul mate. It sucks to lose your spouse. She was relatively a decent person before that.

Tough cookies. Behind that phony smile, Couric is one the nastiest, most partisan news hacks out of there.
She needs to shave her pits, at least in the first picture.
I knew her at UVA in 1979. She was a nut job.
Have you an amusing anecdote?
LOL, you're batting a thousand today.
The Poor little thing , where’s that tiny Violin
Poor guy...no surprise.
That’s all. I thought I was doing better. What I said about Katie is true. She did become bitter after her husband died. I guess you feel that is being mean. But it is factual.
I felt bad about what happened to her husband too. I felt bad for her until the crap she pulled on Sarah Palin.
I tried to tune in every-once in a while for entertainment before they booted her, and I almost never watch network news.
15 million dollars???? I don’t think anyone is worth that kind of money.....what if they had offered her six million...would she have turned it down??? The liberal elite in this country are the most pathetic underachievers that the world has ever known...
“Oh, I thought it was because she wasnt very good.”
I was thinking the pummeling might be because she was TOO cute.
Your post of those photos sums up the media bias in America.
The sad thing is that this HACK, for some reason, is guaranteed major network work for life.
I don’t get it......
She has NO discernable talent and her only personality is fake. She`s a cartoon, a perpetual juvenile narcissist with delusions of importance and a media-whore.
Gee, no bias there.
Senator Schumer should have done Katie Courage a favor and passed a law to tax away 90 % of her income.
After all, Schumer threatened to do the same thing to the Big Banks in 2009, long after the Democrat’s Fairness Doctrine was made into Party Common Law, (PCL).
Another PCL factor is the “Fairness Doctrine,” which in Katie’s case also involves the see-saw battle in Obamanation between the White-ists, Sex-ists, and the Democrat’s on-going War on Women.
she was awful
Its called menopause.
Someone should’ve slipped her some lube and flax seed.
maybe she and shrillary can get together and have a good cry over how hard their lives are, as for me I’m all out of give shit.
If Katie can’t find TV work maybe she can get a pizza waitress job.
Well she can afford a shrink even without OCare or Nocare or whatever. Sorry you were not liked at he office. Lots of folks outside the office didn’t like you as well.
Money for nothin and apparently the chics aren’t free.
When is she going to do a story on the latest Dem talking point - Income Equality...:^)
Good Point. The NBC “war on women” segment should be entertaining as well.
I was just thinking the same thing (and rolling my eyes the way she did to Sarah).
lol...doesn’t that just say it all?

Katie Couric has been shamelessly lying and carrying water for the Clintons for as long as she has been able. She's been a number one backstabbing, treacherous media hack ever since she first slimed her way in front of a camera. There is no aspect of the liberal progressive Leftist agenda that she hasn't promoted and protected with every ounce of power she's ever had. And she's going down because Hillary's going down, and that's why she's invoking Hillary - as an effort to reconnect Hillary with media support.
That's the truth about her - the ONLY truth about her.
Everything else is rank shill material, including your pathetic sob stories.
I am surprised you are on this site. You have every right too, but most atheists find being on DU more welcoming. Being nasty towards your fellow man is NOT a good Christian trait. Keep up your bitterness. It is kinda sad. I will pray for you. It is Father’s Day and maybe you didn’t get your cake yet.
LOL, hypocrite much?
And for what - pointing out that Katie Couric is a lifelong leftist? THAT makes me a nasty, bitter DU atheist who didn't get his cake?
But YOU'RE going to pray for me?
LOL, yeah, you do that. And make sure you get those candles right - last time you messed up the pentagram and almost lit the eye of newt on fire.
A small taste of what she and others have done to conservatives.
Have a great day.....your post was very funny and quite frankly I needed it this Monday morning.
