Katie Couric felt ‘pummeled’ at CBS News,
resented by coworkers for $15M salary
and unfriendly personality: new book

New York Daily News, by Rich Schapiro

Poor Katie — get her some Kleenex and a wrinkle-free pantsuit. TV star Katie Couric took such a beating in the press after she jumped ship to CBS she started comparing herself to Hillary Clinton, a new book says. The steep drop in popularity that followed Couric’s exit from NBC’s “Today” show in 2006 left her full of self-pity, according to author Sheila Weller. “In private, Katie — who had recently turned 50 — was now beginning to actively and repeatedly compare herself to the embattled but energized Hillary Clinton,” Weller writes in her new book — “The News Sorority: Diane Sawyer,

I wonder if Katie Couric remembers how nice it felt to be loved by everybody on the Today show. Did she not remember that adoration came from her playing a role of a perky happy nice person on a feel good morning show? Maybe she came to believe that adoration came from actually being a talented nice person and not just from playing, acting like a talented nice person on TV.

Ok, I´m a curmudgeon. When Katie Couric first hit our television screens, she was fine, awfully bright-eyed and perky, but at least not annoying. Now, she´s evolved way past annoying and I have no idea what she has to be unhappy about.

Boo Hoo! So Katie got treated the same way she treated others. Look at what she did to Sarah Palin the first woman to run for VP on the Republican ticket. I watched her stick her finger down her throat behind the first Pres. Bush as he gave her a tour of the WH. She thought she wasn´t being filmed but was being cute. NOT! Can´t stand the woman. She surely didn´t make it on her looks. Hubris is really ugly. Hillary has it; Obama has it; Michele has it; Katie and Diane have it. It brings down the mighty.

Resented by her coworkers? How could that be? The "Einsteins" at CBS were "only" paying Perky Katie Anne a "mere" $288,461.53 weekly to drag the network´s evening news ratings even lower into the gutter than Gunga Dan´s previous "record breaking" performances!

I never saw any talent with Katie Couric; she always came across as arrogant, mean-spirited, and showing no class or talent. Like another poster said, she made fun of people whenever she could. The finger in her throat when G. W. was showing her the White house was disgusting and shows what a mean creep she is. I watched her wrinkle her nose in disgust when she read off the names of Sarah Palin´s children. "Where did Sarah come up with these stupid names"? She made fun of Dan Rather and his stand up collar on his trench coat. Katie Couric caused her own downfall with her hatefulness, ignorance, and arrogance. I do not feel sorry for her one bit. She was paid far too much, and she is a sour poor loser to boot.

Say what you will about Katie, and believe me I have, she has made a fortune and lives in luxury because of her leftist world view. A prime example of how life isn´t fair. Just another example of success due to media people in power (leftist by nature) deciding who their mouthpieces are, and keeping them perpetually employed.

She should go over to Iraq and interview some ISIS whack jobs. I´m sure they´d give her a better colonoscopy than she got in America.

Just imagine the outpouring of love, grief and affection for her when she winds up doing her bit in a muzzcrazy passion play... kneeling blindfolded in front of a group of masked "men" while one of them dulls a knife...

Patriotism as pest control:
Florida’s weird fireworks law
Tampa Tribune [FL], by James L. Rosica    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/30/2014 9:47:38 AM     Post Reply
TALLAHASSEE — The coming of Independence Day means fireworks season — and the beginning of the institutionalized charade behind their sale in Florida. In the Sunshine State, one does not buy a bottle rocket for recreation; one buys it to scare birds away from farms and fisheries. That’s right: Explosives for pest control. Technically speaking, consumer fireworks are illegal in Florida. But nearly 60 years ago, state lawmakers passed an exception — now the only one of its kind in the United States — for fireworks purchases by farms and fish hatcheries. That’s how vendors, including those in the ubiquitous tents that spring up

WINTHROP HARBOR, Ill. - On Monday morning, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hand down its opinion on a case involving a Winthrop Harbor woman which could have a significant impact on the future of public sector unions. Illinois state law allows Pam Harris to work as the full time caregiver for her son Josh, who is severely disabled. She is paid by Medicaid. But when Gov. Quinn signed an executive order allowing caregivers like Harris to be unionized, she filed a lawsuit, saying she´s technically not a state employee and complaining that her son´s Medicaid benefits would go toward a

WASHINGTON—In the Georgetown gated community of Hillandale, residents live in secluded calm governed by some 50 pages of rules banning fences, motorcycles, certain paint colors, tree species and excess dogs and cats (no more than two total per household). "People come to live in Hillandale because of the quality of our residential community, and that is something that we need to maintain," says resident Sallie Forman. Then one of the most powerful economic policy makers in the world moved in and, in the words of some here, ruined the neighborhood.

On Friday, Rich commended the Club for Growth for putting a lot of money — over $3.1 million to be exact — behind its vocal support of Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Senate primary. In terms of dollars spent, the Senate Conservatives Fund came in second, pouring over $1.3 million into the state to back McDaniel. Both groups also spent heavily in the three-week runoff election: approximately $650,000 and $250,000 respectively, and, in a race that was conducted largely over the airwaves, that money went mostly to television and digital advertisements, according to Federal Election Commission records.

If Hillary Clinton runs for President, she’s still the odds-on favorite because she has the Democratic machine behind her. The conventional wisdom is that the nomination is Hillary’s to lose. If Hillary’s disastrous book rollout and tone-deafness about her wealth are any indication, Hillary might just accomplish the unthinkable of imploding a second time as presumptive nominee. Hillary’s worst enemy is Hillary. There’s only so long you can pretend to be something you are not. Enter Elizabeth Warren. We have been arguing for years that Warren is a unique political talent, someone who can demagogue the national victim narrative better than anyone in recent

Judging from an appearance on CNN by former IRS executive Lois Lerner’s attorney, William Taylor III, the embattled former IRS official at the center of the targeting scandal is embracing an argument similar to the White House’s defense of the IRS as a whole: Republicans are on a political witch-hunt. More accurately, Taylor’s defense of his client is based on the notion that Lerner is the real victim of targeting here. “She was as upset as anybody else was about the loss of the emails and the other documents which were on their which were quite important to her,” Taylor said of

George Zimmerman says he is homeless and jobless but spends $100 a month on vacations and $200 a month on counseling. According to recently filed divorce papers documenting his finances, Zimmerman listed assets totaling $14,000, which accounts for his 2008 Honda pickup and debts of $2.5 million in legal fees, the Orlando Sentinel reported. The 30-year-old former Neighboorhood Watch volunteer was found not guilty last year of shooting to death Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old walking through Zimmerman’s housing complex in Sanford, Fla. His wife, Shellie, filed for divorce two months after his acquittal for the 2012 killing. As part of those proceedings, Zimmerman

WASHINGTON — A close adviser to Hillary Clinton agrees with Republicans that it’s time for an independent prosecutor to investigate alleged IRS targeting of conservative groups and missing e-mails. Lanny Davis — who was a counselor to President Bill Clinton — said the IRS needs intense scrutiny from an outside investigator. “There’s no Democrat that I know of that wouldn’t be asking a Republican administration to conduct an independent investigation” if Republicans were in charge, Davis said Friday. Davis referenced the disclosure that IRS official Lois Lerner proposed investigating Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) after she received an invitation intended for him. The invite

The latest disaster is allowing Iraq to slide into a full sectarian civil war, which when added to the other scandals that include Benghazi, the Internal Revenue Service, Veterans Affairs, illegal immigration and Ukraine, the American public’s attention is clearly on overload.

Facebook’s News Feed—the main list of status updates, messages, and photos you see when you open Facebook on your computer or phone—is not a perfect mirror of the world. But few users expect that Facebook would change their News Feed in order to manipulate their emotional state. We now know that’s exactly what happened two years ago. For one week in January 2012, data scientists skewed what almost 700,000 Facebook users saw when they logged into its service. Some people were shown content with a preponderance of happy and positive words; some were shown content analyzed as sadder than average.

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States. The proposed project would have extended from Alberta, Canada to Illinois, transporting approximately 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Estimated cost is $1.7 billion. But Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and 2014. Democrats are beholden to the radical green movement – the poor and middle class be damned. Now this… Canada pulled the plug on Keystone and will

Edward Klein’s book about the animosity between the Clintons and Obamas, “Blood Feud” (Regnery Publishing), rocketed up the best-seller charts since it was featured in The Post last Sunday. Here, in another exclusive excerpt, Klein ­describes how Bill’s health is a preoccupation of the Clintons. A pair of black, armor-plated SUVs swung into a suburban cul-de-sac and crunched to a stop in the driveway of the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, New York. A wall of burly Secret Service agents jumped out and surrounded the man who emerged from the lead vehicle. It was mid-summer 2013, and Bill Clinton looked shrunken and weary.

No. Did anything change?

As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible? On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.

Hillary Clinton is just too unlikable (remember that Barack Obama called her “likable enough” in one of the most memorable back handed compliments of recent political memory), and too transparently greedy, self-serving, and out of touch. Not to mention the appalling foreign affairs crises the United States faces in the wake of her term as Secretary of State. Her brand is tarnished.

President Barack Obama announced today that he would again go around Congress to enact immigration reform measures. In a hastily scheduled statement this afternoon from the White House Rose Garden, Obama said he would ´greatly prefer´ Congress passing any sort of immigration reform legislation, even if it wasn´t the bill he supports, but he was done sitting around waiting for that to happen. The president said his administration would ´refocus´ its efforts on the border, and he would use his ´existing legal authority´ to do ´what Congress refuses to do´ and fix the broken immigration system.
