Perky Katie Couric Has an All-Star Line Up Her First Week

Drudge has his siren going for this one:


Plans for the opening week of CBS EVENING NEWS WITH KATIE COURIC have surpassed network executives' wildest dream: Presidents Bush and Clinton, radio king Rush Limbaugh and broadcast legend Walter Cronkite have all agreed to appear, a CBS insider reveals!

A top network source says scheduling of "guest editorials" are still in flux.

But the addition of Rush Limbaugh to the CBS EVENING NEWS is bound to generate maximum commotion and tune-in hits.

Rudy Giuliani and Bill Maher have also signed on to appear in early editions of Couric, a network source explains.

CBS will issue a press release on Monday confirming details of the EVENING NEWS all-star line-up.


Getting Rush to appear is pretty impressive since he doesn't do these kinds of things anymore.

Lorie adds: Getting Rush to appear is even more incredible considering this insensitive comment Couric made about Rush on the Tonight Show.

I think I'll just wait to hear it on Rush's show the next day. I don't even remember the last time I watched any network news broadcast.

I'm guessing they mean HW Bush, but anyone know for sure?

I agree with Drudge, it's an impressive line-up. But my guess is it lasts all of one week and then disappears. We'll see if Katie's good enough at night to hold the audience.

I'll watch Rush on hotair.com or youtube. I have NEVER seen her morning show so I don't see any reason to break my good luck streak.

Like I said, I'll catch Rush on hotair.com or youtube. Besides Kate ain't my type and she is too old.

Peg C.:

How to watch the Rush interview without actually hearing or seeing Perky - that's the dilemma. This is best done after it's recorded on a DVR, with 1 finger on Mute and the other on Fastforward. I can't wait to hear Rush explain this one. And I'm still a W fan, but will not watch her interview him.

The sooner the Couric Era ends, the better for all of us.

What a way to open a new chapter in CBS News. Will Regis be invited as well? How about Larry King?

Bill M:

I would guess it's 43 who will appear rather than 41. I think they would have made a point of it if it was 41.

Anyway, if it is 43, then I see the hand of Karl Rove in this. Katie has to make nice right off the bat and then she'll look bad when (not if) she switches mode and starts attacking later. Or if she starts off bitchy, she will immediately loose credibility. Either way, she ends up looking bad and SeeBS gets another black eye to go along with their Rathergate one (and the rotten eggs they're selling with the SeeBS eye).

Either that or we are looking at infotainment from the start. Wonder if Slick will have a cigar?

I know, that Katie Couric is soooooo insensitive! That rhymes-with-witch!

Boy, what a great job of taking one line out of context. Can you tell us what Rush said before and after that line? Even if you could, I bet you wouldn't. Anyone who listens to Rush knows that he uses things like hyperbole quite often. Just because Media Matters reports that Rush spoke a certain sentence doesn't mean that was all he said. And it's funny about the Lush thing too. I guess you couldn't find a way to fit "recovering prescription drug addict" into a screen name.

"Why should blacks be heard? There 12% of the population. Who the hell cares."
