That makes at least two of us that don't like Katie.

No, there's more than one of you. I've despised the woman for years as one of the biggest phonies on TV. And I've never understood the excitement about her supposedly great legs. I've seen better looking legs sticking out of a bird's nest.

Are you kidding? Neither my wife nor I can stand her. She wasn't bad looking before here face lift, but now she is the spitting image of Liberace and she ain't too smart neither. Naturally we resent the huge sums of money she receives. We're jealous I suppose, and jealousy is the worst emotion. Sigh.

You might think you are the only person who doesn't like her but I hope there are many like me who just don't care about celebrities.

"Who is katie couric?"

William,
She is the permanent replacement for Dan Rather as the anchorperson of the CBS Evening News. I.e., Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite's old chair.

Oh good grief, she is no worse than any of us!

Looks like you're in good (or bad) company on this... I've actually never seen her on TV.

Dan Rather...there's another one. As someone said, never trust a man with an adverb for a last name.

Don't know her either ... is it worth firing up google/images for?

Tony,
So you're saying that you or I could become the new Walter Cronkite?

Maybe YOU could....

P.S. I really have nothing against Katie Couric as a person. I just don't think she's news anchor material, is all. I don't think she's that caliber of journalist, or that good at reading the news.

I would second the negative reaction to Anderson Cooper. I actually get nauseated every time I see him on TV making himself the story more than the the folks who have been blown up around him.

Katie has no credibility. I can't stand her. You're not alone.

Oh, that Katie Couric. The one that did her colonoscopy live on TV?

She sounds like someone that would qualify for the Wack Pack.

Ms. Couric will be no different than the current cash-register lady who, every morning now, takes my $3 or $4 for breakfast in our cafeteria. A couple of years ago when she was new, she was a lousy cash-register person; too slow and she gabbed too much with the person ahead of you. Now she's good at it, quick, and quick-witted, and everyone gravitates to her when there is new or temporary help at the second register, even when there's few people in the other line. I think Katie will grow on us and soon SHE'LL be the next Mr. Cronkite. I have grown kind of used to Bob Schieffer, though. I like him as an anchor.

With a couple of notable exceptions on PBS, today's news anchors are all automatons. They're no more journalists than you or I. They just read news prompters and try not to stutter or use the wrong vocal intonations. Personally, I think these ladies all do at least as good a job as Katie Couric and have about as much integrity.

Never liked Katie Caustic nor Matt Liar.
They tried to hard to make news too early in the morning...

Eh, she's a fine newsreader. No worse than most of the others.

It does scare me that news coverage on the Daily Show is better than most cable or TV news coverage.

Oh no you're not. In case you didn't get that yet.
