I watch the network news about as often as I drink castor oil, but did catch a bit of Katie Couric's little show and was astonished by the continuing trivialization of our news.
Years ago I recall network anchors complaining about the precious brevity of their alloted time, of how only 22 minutes after commercials was available to tell us what happened in the past 24 hours. And yet in the brief amount I watched the CBS Evening News, Couric wasted my time telling me that Sarah Palin had notes scrawled on her palm. This was supposed to make us feel like Palin was a hypocrite for calling out Obama about his teleprompter habit.
Couric soundedlike a fourth-grader tattling on her neighbor for sticking a crayon up his nose. You really can't make it up.
