    Sheryl Crow: Tea Partiers are too ‘Uneducated’ to ‘Understand What’s Happening on Wall Street’ By Alana Goodman Created 06/28/2010 - 16:39 Pop-star and courageous anti-toilet-paper crusader [0] Sheryl Crow apparently has a new political concern: Tea Partiers. The country crooner told CBS journalist Katie Couric that Tea Party members are uneducated, angry and potentially dangerous in an interview [1] with Glamour magazine this June. After Crow complained in the interview that Americans have become too blasé about politics, and that nobody has taken to the streets to cause "a riot or a revolution," Couric correctly pointed to the Tea Party...

    Deacon Greg Kandra was an interesting presence on the CBS staff in the Katie Couric era. He edited her blog Couric & Co. as he was ordained a Catholic deacon in 2007. At his Beliefnet blog The Deacon's Bench, he responded to the blog Creative Minority Report claiming Couric is a modern Margaret Sanger, the controversial eugenics-endorsing founder of Planned Parenthood. (The label came from Couric's recent subsidize-the-contraceptives commentary.) I expected Kandra might offer some defense to the CBS star. Instead, Kandra wrote: CMR calls Katie a "modern Margaret Sanger." I know what CMR is talking about. And boy, do...

    In a speech to the University of Minnesota Alumni Association this weekend, Katie Couric reflected on her 2006 CBS Evening News debut: "According to the critics, I couldn't do anything right. From the white jacket I wore on the first my makeup, to the way I held my hands on the anchor desk, to the stories we did. I had to tell myself, 'You're good at your job, you have something to offer and who the hell do these people think they are anyhow?'"

    Katie Couric, a dutiful White House ally among many in the U.S. media, will do a live interview with President Barack Obama during tomorrow’s Super Bowl pre-game coverage on CBS, bringing together two of America’s most notable megalomaniacs – and forever tarnishing the pure joy that is Super Bowl Sunday. Is nothing sacrosanct? Couric and her crew at CBS are asking viewers, via their website “What should she ask him?” and invite you to email Katie your question.

    Barack Obama hosted reporters and anchors from many TV broadcast and cable outlets for lunch at the White House today.The confidentiality off-the-record gathering has been broken some by comments posted at Twitter by CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric who tweeted, "Just had lunch with the president who seems pensive, slightly deflated, realistic, aggravated and resolute. Didn't eat his pie."Couric's take on Obama was disputed by Democrat operative George Stephanopoulos who challenged Couric to a "tweet-bate."Stephanopoulos, who was recently promoted to co-anchor of ABC News' Good Morning America was at the lunch along with Diane Sawyer, the newly appointed anchor...

    Here is video of CBS News anchor Katie Couric talking to "Tea Party Movement" leaders Michael Johns and Kellen Guida about what is behind the grassroots movement that has swept the country. They told Couric the movement is a "visceral reaction" to the idea that "our federal government was growing too large, that too much power was being centralized, and government bureaucracies that the American people were over-taxed, in some ways over-regulated." They also told Couric it is fundamentally a "patriotic movement" - a movement that loves America and what America stands for in the world. Couric joked with them...

    In yet another testament to liberals celebrating liberals, on Thursday the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism announced that CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric won the Alfred I. duPont award for excellence in broadcast journalism for her slanted 2008 interview with vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. In the interview, shown over a number of days on the CBS Evening News in September of 2008, Couric routinely sought trip up Palin. As NewsBusters' Brent Baker reported, on the September 29 broadcast, Couric pounded Palin on Pakistan, despite lobbing softballs to Joe Biden on the economy.’s TVNewser obtained note to...

    Here is video of CBS News reporter Jeff Glor in Haiti where he talked with victims and showed some of the hardest hit areas of Port-Au-Prince. Glor followed a family into their damaged home and while he was talking with her, a tremor took place that sent them all running back out into the street. Glor also shows the scene outside a hospital where many of the wounded are lying in the street with no help. He then appeared in a live shot with CBS Anchor Katie Couric. Glor continued to talk with Couric standing beside him. Couric never said...

    Angry, frustrated, troubled, disappointed, disgust, disrespect - words not normally associated with holiday season. However, they were words Katie Couric used to describe where she sees the mood of country right now. Couric, the anchor of the "CBS Evening News," in a live Facebook video chat on Dec. 22, took on illustrating her view of the populace - a not very sunny picture (emphasis added). "I think more distant - I hate to say that, but I think, I think the economic situation in this country, I think, when people are struggling, that sometimes they need a place to vent...

    More than a year before the end of “the first decade of the 21st century,” Katie Couric on Monday night eagerly publicized a non-CBS News poll which, she relayed, found that “as we get ready to close the chapter on the first decade of the 21st century, most of us are ready to say 'good riddance.' In a poll released today, Americans 2-to-1 expressed a negative view of the past ten years.” (The 21st century began with 2001, not 2000, so the decade will not conclude until the end of 2010.) In reciting the numbers from the Pew Research Center...

    One of the pet peeves of your humble correspondent is reporters who slam people or policies via the device of "some say" or "critics say" when in fact it is really their own position. However, they can't say what they really think in order to put up the false front of "neutrality." Such was the case of Katie Couric on the CBC Evening News last night in which she used her Notebook commentary to slam Senator Joe Lieberman for having unethical motives in opposing health care public opposition and an expansion of Medicare: There's a new movie coming out next...
  • Some Observations: Huckabee IS Locking Up The Social Conservative Vote

    For the sake of brevity - straight to the point (pun intended). I have thought long about Huckabee's recent interview with Katie Couric. One of the topics that came up was Huckabee's view on same-sex marriage, and it was no accident that it came up. Huckabee's position on the issue of abortion is concrete - he is ardently pro-life. What remained was for him to effectively frame the same-sex marriage debate, and that he did. Quite effectively in fact. In short, he told Couric that he was pro-traditional marriage, not anti-same sex marriage. He said that it's not that he...

    Cruise ships are increasingly catering to holidaymakers' particular interests - whether it's art and culture or a particular hobby. And sexual attraction is no exception as what is thought to be the world's first 'Cougar Cruise' has proven a sell-out in the U.S. Aimed at older women who prefer to date younger men, the fully-booked International Cougar Cruise set sail from San Diego in California on December 4.
