Couric on the way out at CBS?

Couric on the way out at CBS?

It's looking more and more like Katie Couric is going to be out of her anchor role at CBS News in the near future.

The New York Post reported last week that Couric is in talks with ABC, apparently looking for a job after her contract ends this summer, and Howard Kurtz reported that, though CBS wants Couric to stay on through the 2012 elections, the network wants her to take a pay cut.

<snip>

...the ratings have not be kind. Her nightly newscast continues to rank third behind NBC and ABC, having lost some 3 million viewers since she took over. (Reminder: Couric is being paid $75 million for a 5-year contract.)

All of this has former CBS insider Bernie Goldberg predicting Couric's demise as CBS anchor, as he did last night on Fox News, saying, "She's gone," when asked about the situation by Bill O'Reilly.

"I say this without fear of being wrong: as the anchorwoman of the CBS Evening News, when her contract is up, she is out," Goldberg said.

I don't know if Goldberg has inside information or if he's just predicting based on following the news, but he appeared certain. We'll see if he's right.....

Video clip of Goldberg's comments to O'Reilly @ baltimoresun...
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

Great, C-BS's loss...will become ABC's next loss?

The networks are so terminally diseased, this will have no effect...the next overpaid brain-dead Leftist J-School/Poly-Sci dipstick willing to carry water for every commie puke on the planet will replace the last overpaid brain-dead Leftist J-School/Poly-Sci dipstick who carried water for every commie puke on the planet...rinse, repeat, barf!

Well Typhoid Katie is blaming the little people for not propping up her socialist tripe in the Network raitings!

It's not her fault for being a loser, it's other people's fault for bailing on a loser!
