Thong Underwear or Not, Second Coming of Katie Tonight

By Debbie Schlussel
To read the papers, today, you’d think it was the Second Coming, tonight, on the “CBS Evening News.”
Yup, Queen Katie, the newly annointed Her Royal Highness of Girl Power Newsiness, takes her throne atop CBS, tonight. We’re not thrilled (Read my comments in USA Today upon Katie’s send-off from NBC’s “Today”).
We wonder if Queen Katie will use her valley girl vocab, including, “I’m stoked,” on the Evening News. Will she show us some of her well-known, past bodily “displays” (emphasis on the “splay” part of that word)? We’re referring to her on-air colonoscopy. Well, it wasn’t just any colonoscopy. Pre-photoshopping Katie’s figure to thinness a la CBS, she actually was thin once. And vanity overtakes sanity–she insisted on sexing it up beyond respectability for even a morning TV host. “Today Show” cameras showed us her thong underwear being slinked off her legs.

CBS Evening News with Katie, Thong & Elmo

Even AARP Magazine didn’t show us that, last year, when she did a lot of very unanchorly cleavage shots for them, below.
Yes, tonight, CBS has the dubious distinction of coronating the very first news anchor to show us her thong underwear on live national television. (We’re not including “The Naked News,” of course.)
We predict that CBS will get a temporary bump, this week, as curious gawkers will want to see how Katie–thong (these days it’s a larger size needing photoshop) and all–fare. But, even that can’t be attributed to Katie because she’s had to convince the likes of Rush Limbaugh to create an artificial ratings bump for the gerontological network news show.

Katie Couric is anything but “hot”. CBS has been running the caboose in the evening news cycle for years. By replacing a couple of old shmucks like Rather and Sheiffer with Couric, the ratings will sink even further. Has anyone notified CBS and the other networks that the evening world news is antiquated and out-dated?! People below the age of 50 don’t watch anymore.

From Dan Rather to Katie Couric; yup, thatís as credible and balanced as liberals get.

On tonight’s debut, The Perkster will remove one article of clothing for each story she reads.

I am willing to bet 100 cases of Geritol that CBS’ ratings will begin to drop so low that Couric won’t last a year. Thong or no thong.

Just in case any RadFems read this site, the Geritol crack (no pun intended) was a joke. The reason I don’t think she will last is not because she is a woman (Elizabeth Vargas would be v-e-r-y easy on the eyes), or because of her age, or looks (actually, I think she has sexy legs) but because she acts goofy and her liberal slant is often very noticeable.

I didn’t/wouldn’t watch her debut, but how did The Perkster perform on her opening night on the Columbia Bullshitting System (CBS)?

Thee_Bruno on September 5, 2006 at 11:18 pm

Believe it or not, I actually did get the point of this post: How does Couric expect to be taken as a serious broadcast journalist when she’s doing cleavage shots and thong drops!
I did always like Elizabeth Vargas though because she can be taken seriously and having that wholesome beauty (not the air-brushed playboy look) made her even more appealing. Which did not distract from her news reporting. A very good balance. I hated to see ABC let her go just because she wanted to have a baby and got pregnant.
I never did know what her party affiliation was which is a good sign for a reporter. If their doing their job right you shouldn’t be able to tell.

last time I checked, women have boobs. why can’t a woman be sexy, cute, attractive, and still have journalistic integrity, ethics, and intelligence?
Are they mutual exclusive? And, judging from the picture on for your blog. Are you aiming for intelligent or the alternative.
