“Katie’s” Notebook.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:56 pm

atieK ouricC.jpgIn a recent segment of “Katie’s Notebook,” (distributed to various radio stations and posted on CBS’s website) Katie Couric described her experience of obtaining her first library card. Her remembrance opened with, “I still remember when I got my first library card, browsing through the stacks for my favorite books.”

Howard Kurtz points out in a Washington Post article that Katie Couric did not write the piece describing her experience for her “Notebook,” but rather it was written by a network producer. Well, that’s not exactly true either. It turns out that the network producer lifted much of the piece from an article written in the Wall Street Journal by Jeffrey Zaslow.

CBS explained that it was “very common” for staffers to write first person commentaries for Ms. Couric. The network apologized to the Wall Street Journal and fired the producer.

Maybe Katie Couric will actually write something all by herself for her “Notebook” about this little oooopsie.

  1. That’s crazy.
    Actually, I’m not surprised at all.

  2. You mean you want Katie to do actual… work??? *gasp* *choke* *sputter*

    They’re only paying her to talk… not write. Geeze people get a grip! You want writing – now that’ll cost ya.

  3. Yet another liberal twit. A major poser. Dresses in sheeps clothing but a vicious and bitchy wolf underneath.

  4. Katie doesn’t have the talent to write something and think for herself. If she did she wouldn’t need to sit in front of a teleprompter reading other people’s words…she doesn’t even do that well.

  5. Geez, Teresa, I thought they were only paying her to blind us with her recessive gums.

  6. Katie was heard privately saying to her producer….

    “Hey, you gotta get me outta this mess. I don’t care how you do it but somehow you have to tie this to Karl Rove…that should work”.

  7. My torment is complete. What’s UP with this scary-ass Big Teeth Pics series? First that Pelosi pic, and now the freakish Couric dentition, albeit sans zookeeper hand.
