The class and dignity of Network TV news anchors went down yet another notch (and we thought it couldn’t get any lower).
Dan Rather’s replacement at CBS, Katie Couric, has a rather interesting and angry–not to mention, classless–response to her critics, relayed to the January issue of Esquire, according to Radar:
You have something in the November issue, something about how since I’ve become an anchor, you don’t know me anymore. You don’t know me anymore? Bite me.
(This is after she said, by the way,
We kind of ignore people who are observing everything we do and praising, criticizing or analyzing it.
Hardly sounds like she’s ignoring them, if they got her to say, “Bite me.”)
“Bite me”? Would love to see her have the guts to say those two words on her newscasts. But no-one will hear it if she does. Judging from the ratings, most of America, has already said, “Bite me,” to Katie Couric.
