Eye on Couric
"America's Sweetheart," Katie Couric, recently filed a series of "reports" from Iraq that amounted to a regurgitation of Bush Assministration propaganda on the surge, sectarian violence, etc. MoveOn.org posted a video exposing Couric's lazy, obsequious and frankly stupid stylings and lo! when it was pointed out to the folks at CBS, they didn't like it. Couric, who will never be a journalist, should stay away from complex and profound topics like Iraq. She has enough trouble producing (i.e., overseeing someone else writing) her banal 60-second "Journal" on CBS Radio; that's about the limit of her capacity for detailed "reporting" and "analysis."
