You know what the worst thing about this is? No, it’s got nothing to do with either news or politics. CBS has long since stopped being a credible source of news, and nobody with an IQ above room temperature in an igloo really gives a rip what some morning show fluff-spout thinks about politics. Personally, I could give a rip about who’s on the Today Show and/or CBS Evening News–I haven’t watched either one in well over a decade.
No, the worst thing is that promo-happy CBS will be plastering Couric’s mug all over the screen during SEC football games this season. Can’t Broadcast Sports already inserts inane programming plugs almost literally between every play, and I won’t be surprised if they digitally superimpose The Perky Anchor’s face on the middle of the field, too.
