Couric Comes Out Swinging
In the wake of today’s awkward announcement from CBS that they did indeed alter an image of new CBS Anchor Katie Couric to make her look slimmer, I received the image at right from an unnamed source who claimed to have absolutely no affiliation with Katie Couric, or CBS’ Public Relations arm under any circumstances.
The image is said to include a once widely circulated newsroom image of former anchor Rather, (Left) which had also been re-touched, but with Rather’s approval, placed next to an image (Right) said to be the original.
"Everyone at CBS always new Rather was a much bigger ass than the network allowed people to see, you never once saw him from behind, now did you?" said the source.
A spokesperson for Rather said the former anchor was unavailable for comment, having recently enrolled in a crash course in vblogging. They went on to suggest that we may be seeing a great deal more of Mr. Rather in the future.
Update: Heavens, I didn’t think Katie ate ice cream? However will she keep her 7,8 or however many figures they’re paying her. Another post for you via Jim Treacher.
