Katie Couric

I watched the first night of Katie and thought she was taking a moderate stance. The story on the debacle in Afghanistan seemed fair-minded. Thomas Friedman was his new more moderate self. Night Two was just to the right of FOX. The story on the agency tracking terrorists made it sound like there was one in every Bush and only this administration stood between us and anihilation. The interview with the President was even worse. Maybe she was trying to balance last night's broadcase, but it seems like she is going to use soft stories where she can take a caring stance to allow her to be a right winger on foreign and similar issues. Too soon to tell and it may be CBS more than Katie but it's worrisome. Esp when she said 20,000 people emailed her a signing off phrase.
