Which One Doesn't Belong in this Picture?

This magazine covers illustrates so very well what exactly is wrong with media in America today. Katie Couric, who calls herself a "journalist", spends more time on magazine covers, posing with actors, than she does digging around for real news. You ask me? She's no journalist. She might have been at one time, but she's most certainly not one now. Nope. Katie's a "Star", with a capital "S". Yes ma'am. She's now, happily, willfully and smugly, someone who is the story, rather than someone who is reporting on the story. Absolutely shameful, Katie. Absolutely shameful. Sadly, though, you're not alone. Far too many of your compatriots have fallen into the same cesspool of "stardom". You're as overpaid as professional athletes (Katie makes $15 million per year. Yes. Really!), as catered to as spoiled actors and as immoral as wild-ass rock stars. And that, my dear, is not the stuff that makes a journalist. Not a real one anyway.

  1. Every evening I find my beloved watching the news on the ONE station that is now coming in... He's watching Miss Couric. It sends me screaming from the room.

  6. I came over to see your opinion on the health care mess... Lovely to see that you're attracting some of those wonderful Chinese spammers as well. Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to get that garbage all over a blog.

    Hope you're well Kari.
