It seems there is a double standard in the workplace–if Katie Couric slaps her male staff for (horrors!) using a word she doesn’t like, it’s just cute but if the genders were reversed–watch out.

Worse–imagine if the gender and ideology were reversed. Something tells me that there’d be nothing joking about the tone if New York magazine described the same incident with the names Rush, Brit or O’Reilly plugged in, instead of Katie.
