Dinosaur Rescue Alert

CBS – living under the delusion that it is Katie Couric’s fault that her evening news hour is failing – has brought in the “legendary” Rick Kaplan to rescue the show. Good for Mr. Kaplan – and I’m sure he’s getting a very nice salary – but what a waste of time, money and effort. This isn’t Couric’s fault or anybody else’s. History has moved on. The evening news as a concept has already sunk into the La Brea tar pits with the mastodons. [Hey, you’d think they’d know it. That’s only a stone’s throw from CBS’ LA headquarters.-ed. Too busy at the Magritte show.]
