    I'm extrememly happy about Katie's debut tonight on the CBS Evening News. Her 26 year career in the news business has shown how hard working she is. She was fired from CNN in its early days simply on her appearance. (Turner said she was "too cute to be credible") She went on to local news and then to the Today Show. Thankfully she never gave up, and now has her first night as a network anchor under her belt. Way to go Katie! You have shown the nation that cute is credible. She did a phenominal job tonight, not letting the hype take away from the job she needed to do. She made small comments about being the new anchor, but did not dwell on it, getting to the first story within the first minute of the broadcast.
    Additionally, the addition of "FreeSpeech" and "Snapshot" will be an excellent way to get the public involved with the news again.

    GREAT JOB, MS. COURIC! See you tomorrow.

    Happy that Katie Couric is now off the CBS News. Sorry to say but she's been awful and that's why alot of viewers left. You can't be cutesy with the news. No one will take you serious. And frankly the current state of affairs proves that. A cutesy President leading the country is more than enough for anyone to take. (or stomach, whichever you prefer).

    Katie has become one the worst reporters ever to hit Nighttime news. She was kicked out of the Morning circut, none of the staff wanted her around any longer. She tried to hog all of the segments and this was apparent to all of it's viewers. She has no clue what an interview should be, this is real work now Katie, and she has no idea what life is life "down" here. She considers herself an elite. She is rich, but she can't hold onto a man even long distance! This tells you something. I am sorry that her husband died, but she didn't feel very much hurt, afterall she did return to work rather soon. She could care less for anyone other than herself. Everyone should write to CBS and let them know, "DUMP KATIE" campaign is on..

    Katie, no we are not a Mad culture as you stated! Yes we are upset, because we have an idiot in the White House that only looks to what he can leave history with. He will go down in history as having every single law that he signed and enacted into as a failure and to be re-written because they were all unconstitutional. Period. Katie swoons over this ashy person because what else does she have, Not a Man in her life. I wonder if she is a lipstick lesbian now. Between Katie and oprah, they should have a threesome with Ashy in the White house. Please Help Katie get over herself and out of our TV screens.
