    Enough Katie Couric, enough Bob Shieffer, enough CBS!

    Who cares about this "passing of the torch". What a bunch of BS--CBS is a news CORPORATION, interested in generating profits for its shareholders like any other corporation. What is all this hype about Couric? Do they think we're that stupid?

    Network news is dead anyway, has been for years. I don't know anyone that watches it anymore.

    The hype buys 4 moths of ratings. She'll kill through December, if that.

    You nailed it! Don't go to the Drudge Report for your news. The only place I seen anything about it is link(s) on the Drudge Report.

    Myself, I given up on CORPORATE News.

    Unfortunately, reading Drudge is a guilty pleasure of mine. Where else would I read about Boy George doing community service...? I didn't know he was still alive!

    I hardly ever watch the big networks. My viewing consists of FSN (Reds only), TLC, HGTV, Food Network, History Channel (also International), Science Channel, TCM, and the various music networks when something interesting is on.

    I used to watch the evening news and read 2 newspapers a day. I've given them both up ... I haven't watch more than 20 minutes of news combined in the last 2-3 years and I don't receive any newspapers at home anymore.

    Much happier ... maybe ignorance is bliss.

    Yep, I was the same way.

    Speaking of "ignorance is bliss", now I get all my news from Dom and GAC.

    Huffington Post is the right-thinking (that means left-leaning) version of Drudge.

    It's hard to believe that it's 2006, and Katie Couric is the first anchor-on-her-own woman on network news. No wonder dinosaur metaphors are appropriate for the networks.

    She should be given a chance for that reason alone.

    I thought Connie Chung was a solo-anchor on her own for a while ?
