Couric Gets the Boot
Indicative of the continuing decline of the network television news, CBS announced today that Today-Show-darling-turned-serious-reporter Katie Couric (cough, cough) was leaving to "pursuing a syndicated talk show" opportunity of as-yet undesignated detail. In other words, she stunk.
Scott Pelley will replace her. With any luck, he'll cover the news in a more neutral manner than Couric, but that's not saying much. If anything.
