Katie Couric, anchor of CBS's "Evening News," has gone glam for the March issue of fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar.
With her hair swept back and wearing more black eyeliner than a member of an emo band, the 52-year-old sits behind her desk at CBS in frighteningly tall platform sandals and a form-fitting, one-shoulder dress.
Harper's Bazaar interviewed Couric just days before she was to face off against anchor competition Diane Sawyer on ABC, and Couric appeared to be calm.
"I don't know whether it's that I've gotten older or more mature, but some of the brouhaha just seems so silly to me," she said in the interview.
Couric also led Harper's Bazaar through the realities of being a woman in network news - "With the job I have, it's much easier to pick apart what a woman is wearing" - as well as what it's like to be a single mother. She admits that, at times, she "profoundly" misses having a partner. Her husband, attorney and NBC News legal analyst Jay Monahan, died almost 12 years ago of colon cancer.
For the past three years, Couric has built a relationship with eco-preneur Brooks Perlin, who's never been married, doesn't have kids and is 17 years her junior.
The age difference doesn't matter to Couric, who dismisses the cougar label as "silly."
"I think it also surmises that the older woman is always the pursuer," she said. "That's not necessarily true. I always say that maybe the older woman is the prey and someone else is the predator. It's just silly."
I am extremely impressed along with your writing talents and also with the structure for your blog. Is that this a paid topic or did you modify it your self? Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it's uncommon to see a nice blog like this one these days..
Cougar dating is of great interest to a lot of males. Fortunately, you'll find enormous variety of more mature girls that desire to night out more youthful adult men. The couple of paragraphs in this article will highlight my own easy ...dating
I don't like her at all! she is totally bias and sold to the liberal
What a disgusting woman!
She is beautiful period.
How can anyone compare Katie to Palin......how insulting to Katie.
I'm more afraid of "b) Republicans who carry a Bible in their right hand and a gun in the left hand."
She has no "S.A." at all and should have stayed at the Today Show where she could have remained her perky self....
Would Christiane Amanpour be gussied up in Harper's Bazaar? That's a real reporter.
Sarah needed crib notes on the palm of her hand to get through her Tea Party speech and Q&A session this past Saturday. Sarah badly needed those kinds of notes on her hand to avoid her embarrassing responses during the Katie Couric interviews. And to mock Obama's use of the teleprompter while having crib notes on the hand is the very definition of hypocrisy. Only a week earlier, she made a big deal of Rahm Emmanuel's casual use of word "retard", only to clam up and go silent when Rush Limbaugh repeatedly mocked her a day later. Sarah provides ample evidence she's a sham. Yet, diehard Sarah Palin supporters must suffer from delusions or arrested development in stridently defending her.
If you really want to know what sexy looks like, check out Robbin Mead and the look at Katie again and you will know what sexy is all about.
I did not know Katie lost her husband, but she has always been hot to me, & I am 35. The cougar label is nonsense. I think people should find love or a partner where they can no matter the age difference as long no one is breaking the law. More power to her. I like her older hairstyle to compared to her younger days. She seems like the perfect woman, pretty, smart, great career.
Stop talking about that woman who QUIT her term as governor of Alaska.
You can put lipstick on a pig...
I do not like her at all – her hairstyle is silly and belongs on a child. In any matter, she is viscious!
Katie Couric is a beautiful, smart, talented and well-tempered YOUNG lady who has had her share of tragedy with her late husband and sister ... but, she does not go for pity – – which is what a lot of people might do. INSTEAD, (I almost said "Rather" but that shouldn't be said in the same context) Katie has bucked up and taken the media bull by the horns ... this, in all probability, is why so many of her critics are the way they are ... irresponsible and jealous. Go Katie ... GO KATIE!!!!

To those who criticize Couric for her "gotcha" questions during their interview, I would point out that Glen Beck didn't appear to be too terribly impressed when Palin tried to use the "all of them" answer with him. He called "Bullcr@p" on Palin. One wonders why it is okay for Beck to ask Palin pointed questions but not Couric.
I agree with bill bonenfant... Sexy?? Not even close. She's nothing but a loud-mouthed, pushy "reporter".....not a "journalist". She asked questions of Palin that were prepared by someone else. She did NO "investigative journalism". She was a plant on the national news because of her gender, NOT because of her ability. Her attack...uh, I mean "interview" with Palin was a joke....it just showed the liberal bias of the national media when they attacked Palin. Obama could do no wrong and Palin could do no right in the eyes of the media....and that is how they presented their "reporting". Pathetic....and now to hold up Katie Couric as "sexy"?? Whatever.
Respect and admiration to Ms. Couric. Any comparison of Ms. Palin's intellect to Ms. Couric's is laughable – Ms. Palin couldn't name A SINGLE THING she read at all. Ms. Palin couldn't even recall her three BASIC talking points without crib notes written on her HAND. And she wants to be PRESIDENT?? You think Mr. Putin and Kim Jong Il are going to be ok with crib notes at a summit, Ms. Palin??
Ms. Couric is a lovely, and, much more importantly, a SMART woman.
Brock: If you quit over Sarah Palin, you were never part of the party anyway. Good luck to you and your blow with the wind attitude. You will need it.
Courage is the Word.
Katie Couric had the COURAGE to present Sarah Palin for what she is: a minipulative, self-serving, under-educated, and poor representation of what most hard working women in the work place don't deserve. Katie has earned her credibility...it's too bad so many of us are blind sighted by frivolous issues such as hair or being sexy.
Bottom Line: it takes a person of courage and vision to be effective in their trade.
Sorry, but there is nothing sexy about Katie Couric! She is a below average journalist at best. She shows no class at all posing for this feature. Looks like someone is having a mid-life crisis. YUCK!
To those who are critical of others and referring to them as "idiots" lacking intelligence, etc., it would behoove each of you to learn how to use the English language, especially grammar and spelling. Otherwise, it is merely an example of the pot calling the kettle black.
How can you compare Katie to Palin? Katie is a smart woman!
Sexy,maybe in someone's eyes but not mine. I think "sexiness" goes well beyond physical beauty, to me she is not sexy. Not because she isn't attractive, she is borderline "OK" in the looks department. But when you look at the whole picture, like the corpses she had to walk over to get where she is, which I am sure there are many. Look at the multitude of people she has been rude during interviews and squarley stabbed in the back and on in her "rise" to the top.
Remember Katie, on the way down you may see some of those people you betrayed on the way up.
Katie's a sexy cougar and also an excellent newscaster/commentator.
She has dignity and class, and personality, unlike the news "robots" that that are the norm on TV today!
Eeeeeewwwww.......Is this a practical joke? If so, not funny.
You go girl. I have always admired Katie. She has shown such
class. I hope she succeeds in everything.
First and foremost a great journalist (a REAL television interviewer, not just a "pre-agreed talking point card reader"). And a beautiful woman still at 52. But yes, another vote against the eyeliner.
And to all the Republican "how dare you sink Palin" haters – she didn't sink Palin. Palin sunk Palin. For some reason I am always reminded of the line from Animal House when I think about her – "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son" – Sarah: spiteful, petulant and willfully ignorant is no way to go through a political career.
the dark make up around katie's eyes got to go, her boy friend is none of anybody's buisness. sarah palin is a pain, she should just go back to alaska and shut up for a while.
Katie hot???!!! Not to me. And what about those gums???? Ever since CBS made such a huge deal of her being the "first woman anchor" I've been repulsed. What about Elizabeth Vargas! Elizabeth has more "hottie" in her little finger, plus her voice is much sexier. Plus, a 52-3-4 "perky" smacks of a woman who cannot accept growing older gracefully. Diane Sawyer or Elizabeth just emote classy. Katie obviously has a high-level sponsor at CBS somewhere that must be infatuated with her – and they wonder why their ratings are in the tank......
Would the media PUUUULEASE quit foisting this fifty something chipmunk on us a something hot? She's as hot as yesterday's morning oatmeal. She must have some friends with pull in high places to continuously bombard us with her "hotness" factor throughout the media. She's not hot today, she won't be hot tomorrow, and frankly, she was not hot in yesteryear either. I'm sure the geriatric set thinks she's hot, maybe Field & Stream ought be running how hot she is rather than CNN or USATODAY.
Anybody that thinks Sarah Palin is smart, has a real problem. I hope the Repulicans can find a real candidate for the next Presidential election.
To think that Sarah Palin is more intelligent then Katie Couric is a parallel to believing in the Easter Bunnie. I don't believe that Ms. Couric needs to write crib notes on her hand nor has she ever hesitated in an interview with world leaders. She can readily stand on her own two feet as a capable person who does not need media coaching or a fashion designer telling her how to dress.
Perhap Mrs. Palin should stay in the environment from which she came and shoot wolves from helicopters. Isn't that sporting?
Katie always has and always will be an attractive, sexy woman.
You got it all wrong...Katie is a tabloid journalist who was hired for the same reasons Sarah was brought into the VP running mate with John McCain.
Only one word describes Sarah... "courage" to try and pull it off.
I think she could have provided Palin had the same advisors as Obama and spent 2 1/2 years perfecting a speach
Only one word describes Katie...Teleprompter-Reader
Sherri, you must think pretty highly of yourself and consider people Idiots or stupid.
I have one wish for our country; Quit voting for our politicians like a highschool popularity contest and find someone to run this country like a business with sound fiscal policies in place.
One last item. Ask Bill Gates to bail-out the homowners who have licensed his Office Products 5 years or longer. It is over-rated and underserviced software. Then provide Microsoft a tax abatement for the next 150 years for the kind gesture.
Loved the dresses but the hairstyle was not good....I agree to just let things happen and get away from lablels....
She is a witch....at one time we watch her now she is far left
AAWWW please already! This old broad is washed up, Diane Sawyer is worse than her and Barbara WAWA thinks she is more important than the president. All liberal wannabes. Her boyfriend is 17 years younger! Good gosh! 35 years old! C'mon, I'm sorry your husband died, I really am, but that is just silly. 17 years difference.Your not as young as you once were and face lifts can only go so far, as Diane the fake Sawyer and Barbara, she looks like she has been burnt at the stake once to often. And that lisp she has really got old. Most of the time she doesn't klnow what she is talking about because he allsheimers kicks in. Please don't try to look like Nancy piggylosi also, she is so ugly she could be used as rat poison. Why does the media cover old broads anyway, move them on down the line. Diane Sawyer is taking a hit for money, it is about time, she is worthless, and Katie, hate to say it, but so are you and you should take a hit money wise also.
One classy chick!! Love the new look!!
Katie Couric? Let's face it. She is just plain beautiful and nice at the same time!! Wish there were more like her.
Poster child for Botox...
Katie Couric just needs some class. She cannot even show in a match flick to the likes of Diane Sawyer or Barbara Walters. Couric is much to concentrated on her self-presentation, no show of concern for her subjects. I quit watching her some time ago.
Debbie, I couldn't agree more. People refer to pedophiles and rapists as predators...I don't think anyone pursuing a healthy relationship is a "predator".
Her treatment of Palin was disgusting. Anyone could attack someone else in such a situation. A "journalist", which they like to pretend they are, would never do such a thing. Her and the now has-been Gibson did the same thing. Katie is a has-been, no talent, yes-girl that hasn't left just yet. Her face reminds me of the woman in the movie Brazil who was getting plastic surgery all the time.
"If Couric hadn't asked hard questions, Palin would have looked like a genius. It's Couric's fault that Palin came across looking like some poorly educated person who had to go to five colleges in order to graduate. Go Sarah!"
Oh my yes. Because we want to ask the candidate for vice president easy fluff questions, like "Where do you get your hair done," and "What's your favorite recipe."
It's entirely the interviewer's fault that she couldn't answer those hard hard questions, like "What publications do you read ot stay current." How dare the interviewer grill her like that!

"Katie Couric could never be sexy in a million years. To say she stared down Sarah Palin is nauseating. Sarah Palin has more brains than Katie Couric could ever think of having. Why would anyone think that because someone doesn't read a certain magazine regularly, that they are less than intelilgent. Millions of people in the world don't read regular magazines. Sarah Palin reads the only magazine she needs to read, The Bible !!"
Oh please. Sarah Palin is a fraud, a hypocrite, and a lousy human being. She abandoned her post as Governor of Alaska in a fit of pique after the elections, and has generally been a complete toady of the religious right, hence your silly comment. If the only book (and yes, it's a book, not a magazine) you ever read is the bible, then no wonder Christians are widely seen as ignorant gits who believe the world is only 5000 years old.
Bill, If you took your blinders off you'd see.... Oh my God, The earth IS Flat. Rush, please help me!!
I can hardly wait until the comparison with Diane Sawyer begins. Now there's a classy gal.
I watched Katie until Princess Diana's funeral. I couldnt believe my ears at some of the stupid nonsense that came out of her mouth... I wonder what her sons are thinking. I wonder how they feel... WHAT AN IDIOT! Did she WONDER what her children were thinking and feeling as they attended their father's funeral??? What an IDIOT and have never watched her since so I can't even comment on what she did or didnt do to Sarah Palin. Personally, I think Sarah is just down right dumb, however, atleast she calls them like she seems them with all of the politicians...greedy bottom dwellers... and to think THEY make the decisions for the hard working Americans. All of it just makes me sick!
Hey Bill Bonenfant – you need to get your facts straight – "Why would anyone think that because someone doesn't read a certain magazine regularly" – That is NOT AT ALL WHAT Katie asked The Stoopid One ie Sarah – Katie asked her what publications she read to keep up on world events – the fact that The Stoopid One either couldn't or wouldn't answer the question killed it for her – all she had to do was say, "I read Time, or Newsweek, or The Economist, or whatever..." Not a tough question at all. You can watch the interview on YouTube. You can also watch an interview on YouTube that Letterman did with Katie post-Sarah. Katie told Letterman that she asked The Stoopid One the SAME QUESTIONS SHE ASKED Biden. There were few, if any differences in the questions she asked The Stoopid One. I don't think Katie was out to get Sarah. Sarah did herself in with her stupidity and ignorance and showed all of us how unprepared she is/was to lead this country.
I have spent an hour of my life reading about the "hotness" of Katie vs. Diane with nothing but cheap shots about Katie and very little praise for Diane (Sarah Palin?? Who cares??) Too bad the internet wasn't around during the Barbara Walters/Harry Reasoner fiasco!! And as far as "hotness" goes, who can possibly compete with Anderson Cooper?? 'NUFF SAID!!!
Oh yeah and I'm pretty sure Couric is older than 52 by a year... or two
Jay from 12:13pm is correct. She looks like a guy and should consider herself very lucky to be where she is. She's dull and I'd rather listen to myself or the tires on my car report the news.
okay... let's see
1. I thought this was a fashion/style article
2. Katie Couric is a smart woman
3.Sara Palin is too... just not at all prepared for VP term
4. The interview with Palin was a bit offensive in nature but it's politics, what isn't.
5. Most people, regardless of their intelligence, love to hate Palin and like to say she's stupid.
6. The bible doesn't come in Magazine form as far as I know. So far we have CD rom, DVD, e book, website, Book, App (for iTouch, etc) audiobook and a couple other formats probably but I've NEVER seen it as a magazine.
and it is important but not the ONLY book a person has to read... especially if that person is trying to obtain the position of 2nd in command of the executive branch
The bible's not a magazine...it's just a tall tale involving zombies and talking snakes. Certainly nothing to brag about. Katie Couric is the cat's meow....she can sit me down for an "interview" any time she wants...
Katie is kind and empathetic to others and seems like a intelligent and well read person. She has supported many a charity and helped with CA research. PALIN on the other hand rents herself out for $$$$$ only and if you cannot even name one magazine among the hundreds out there well she must have had a stage fright moment. Not the intelligent material that is necessary to run the government. Why do you suppose she made so many errors as gov. of Alaska. She even gave up another poor indicator of a leader.
Sexy? I would like to see her layed out in Hustler! Then we could call her sexy.
Katie is a true professional, and looks extremely good for 52 years old. At one time in my life the first thing I would do after coming home from a hard day on the job is turn on the CBS evening news and see what is going on in our world. Things have since changed in the news business with the advent of online news, and cable channels that offer 24 hour news. These days I rarely ever watch the news on the TV when you can get your information online. You can choose the news stories by category, and skip the stories that don't interest you. I was once a fan of the evening news, but sadly I no longer watch it anymore with all the other choices. I do watch clips of Katie on the internet.
DAMN Katie! You can rob my cradle anytime! I never realized she was that hot.
Katie's move to CBS was a big mistake. Her personality is buried while she reads the news, which anybody can do. I think she needs to make a move away from anchor to something much more authentic (and let boring Meredith read the news). I think it would be a great idea if she took over the Oprah spot or did something similar.
At 14 million dollars a year in salary, you would expect more, but she is way over paid for sitting in front of a camera and reading the news.
I was scrolling past this but then I saw that "Katie disrespected Sarah Palin and should be shot."
Now that is funny. Asking someone what their favorite newspaper is and then waiting for them to answer is really antagonistic. I'm still laughting. The more the Palin supporters try to explain themselves the funnier they get.
She is not sexy, she is smart and successful in her field which is "entertainment news". Not sure why CNN even publishes this crap and I am not sure why people need to slam Palin at all turns, I do not agree with her views but people need to move on...
Joe Biden didn't seem to have any difficulty answering Katie's questions.
I think katie never brought to cbs what she had at nbc and it shows> She always appears gloomy on broadcast. As far as the cougar thing I'm not sure whichn is worse, some old bag going after a young kid or some young kid going after an old bag
Excuse me, but is this about Katie Couric or is it the usual Republican vs Democrat drivel?
Katie is a left-wing political fanatic. She is primarily motivated by hatred for conservative political principles. It was a mistake for Sarah to get in the ring with her so early in the campaign.
In the picture, her chin is blocking her adams apple.
Bill, betcha Palin would flunk basic quiz on the Bible.
OH FOR GOODNESS SAKES! Men are never scrutinized this closely....! Leave Katie (and Sarah, for that matter) alone. Can't we let their accomplishments speak for them? Katie rose to the top of a male dominated field and has remained there for some time. ISN"T THAT ENOUGH? Her personal life and her younger man shouldn't be anyone's business. When is the last time we heard a MAN criticized for having a younger girlfriend, or a "bad" haircut? Here's the real issue: those of you who would rather sit at home on your computers bashing Katie and Sarah for actually getting off their rears and contributing to this great land of ours. For the record though, I think Sarah Palin is more a media darling than an intellectual heavyweight and does not have the brains to lead America out of our troubles.
Katie For President!
If Couric hadn't asked hard questions, Palin would have looked like a genius. It's Couric's fault that Palin came across looking like some poorly educated person who had to go to five colleges in order to graduate. Go Sarah!
Kat's about as sexy as a chipmunk...
bill bonenfant, Don, I have not laughed so hard in a looooong time. Thanks guys! I left the US 3 years ago and live in Europe now. I follow news here on CNN regularly and truly enjoy reading these comments. How did this article got turn into a debate about Sarah Palin is beyond me. I wasn't and I am not a fan of Palin. I had some respect for her since she is an advocate for Special Needs children, having one myself. I do agree she should have stayed in Alaska. I was beyond disbelief when I learned she quit her job as Governor, and for what? To go get paid to write a book about campaign gossip? Oh almost forgot, get to be a paid FOX news contributor????? As I said before, I really enjoy reading the comments here on CNN. Makes me miss the USA...
I thought this article was concerning Ms. Couric's sex appeal?.
She "gets sexy"? Would she have arrived where she is if she wasn't that already (as well as smart and talented)?
Least we forget: We are the most entertained and least informed society ON EARTH. Thusly, to millions of people, Palin looks like a Einstein.
Katie looks like a guy with makeup on, trying to look female, sorry but it's true, look at her. Nothing feminine about her face at all. This short man haircut was the last straw. You keep a woman's hair at least shoulder length when they are not attractive. Whosever Idea this haircut was should have been fired. Katie has a mirror, I'm horrified she wants to look like this. If it wasn't for her money and job, this guy 17 years younger, would NOT be with her, being male, only stating the truth. If she wasn't who she was, she'd get few dates. Have NO idea how she got so lucky to be where she is professionally. There are many females in the news industry that could replace her and do so much better. I've tried to watch Katie and can't take or look at her, turn the station in an instant. I hope she thanks her lucky stars daily that somehow she got where she's at.
Hey, leave Diane Sawyer alone! She's intelligent, sharp, and gorgeous!
I know from my friend in Canada that there have been women newscasters and reporters for decades. Good ones. And lightnining didn;t strike. What't the bid deal?
I would read the bible but I'm more a fan of non-fiction.

The same idiots were holding up "COUNTRY FIRST" placards at McCain/Palin rallies.
As the rating go down, the skirt goes up.
She's no different than a boat load of other famous people...desperately wanting to be relavent and never getting old...this reaks of desperation...when she's 70, trust me, this virile 53yo man will be lookin past old Kate's shoulder to the much younger lady behind her....give your head a shake Dear....
Jennings, Brinkley, Cronkite, Murrow, Couric.
Which one doesn't fit?
Where do you people come off thinking Katie Couric has a brain in her head? Read my lips... I will repeat this one last time... She is a talking head, fed by a teleprompter. No redeeming qualities does she have. She obviously has a good agent that landed her a sweetheart deal.
I think Katie is great- a smart, nice person and a good solid news anchor. I watch her every night. Now Diane Sawyer is a whole different story-a pathologically ambitious, hysterical, predatory female. I cannot imagine what ABC news is thinking with their re-arrangement of anchors. I really miss Charlie Gibson and of course, Peter Jennings.
Seems that all the Palin talk in here is to sweep over the fact that Couric is NOT sexy. I can always find Bush and Palin talk in an article that never mentioned them in the first place. Pretty sad. Get over yourselves, people.
I am so sick of hearing about sarah palin, she has neither the brains, or the prestige of katie or millions of other women. She should stay in alaska!.
To Bill Bonenfant,
I hear Mel Gibson's looking for a new PR guy.
What makes Katie Couric sexy is her resemblance to a Nebraska social worker.
Debbie – You are divorced... What does that say about you? huh?
peace COL Kurtz
Idiots like Sarah Palin are KILLING our party.
.....ewwwwwww, she is an old bag who needs to hang up her mike.
Bill Bonenfant. ARe you a complete idiot?
You kidding me, Katie couldn't be sexy if she walked around naked. Her sexy days are long gone, now she is just an old leftover.
What is the big deal about this person! She has her job because of her gender not her knowledge. She was worthless on the today show along with her partner, who is still worthless. She sits in front of a camera and reads the news. Many have done it before her and many will do it after she leaves. She along with all the others who report the news get way too much money. Whatever she does with her private life is hers. Why she feels the need to go out with a much younger person than she is her business. But, I would bet that it has to do with wanting to be the boss. She probably likes being on top and feels in totally control. This guy probably thinks this is real cool and is soaking it all up. So, go for it little katie because you sure aren't getting any younger.
Nothing about her is attractive. I am 53 so if it was I would know.
well just submit praise only, others not accepted.......
Im sorry, but that short hair is bad for her. It makes her look like a little boy.
Morons and smart people belong to both parties; but the one key difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Republicans value ideology over intelligence and ability (GW Bush and Palin) while Democrats values intelligence and ability over ideology (Clinton, Bradley, Obama).
As for Couric, her interview was masterful because it was so revealing. She gave Palin every opportunity to answer junior high and high school level questions. And Palin responded like a kid giving a book report who hadn't read the book.
I never did and still don't see it.
Maybe some folks get turned on by dollar signs.
I'm sure Katie can afford the bleeding edge of whatever makeup, plastic surgery and full body nano-particle restoration becomes available.
Did Walter Cronkite have a sexy side? Katie Couric is going to be perceived to be the poster girl for "journalism lite" as long as there is any perception that what she looks like matters. IMO, Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer represent everything that is wrong about women trying to gain respect as serious journalists who are all about news, not about ratings. This Harper's Bazaar thing is exactly what a woman who doesn't want to be taken seriously as a news anchor does.
Diane Sawyer has Katie beat when it comes to reporting. Sexy and cute has nothing to do with reporting. Katie needs to get out the magazine (Harper's) and look more like a reporter. Lose the hair!!! And please quit reading.
What the f.,, Oh never mind.....
You morons are UFB! Of COURSE Katie was well within her rights and totally proper to ask Idiot Sarah Palin what the heck she reads because it is patently obvious that she is so uninformed and spouts such garbage that she doesn't read much! Most of the American public wanted to know what written material informs Palin's view of the world! We all founc out that evening! Palin is totally uninformed! The fact that after all is said and done and with all that we have learned about this total featherweight, you all were willing to risk the fate of the USA to an imbecile such as Palin who would have been a heartbeat away from the Presidency (with John "get off my lawn" McCain aka the old geezer) as our prez speaks volumes to your lack of concern for our beloved country! Go back to your teabagging (and yes I DO mean it as you might interpret that word) and drop out of political discussions altogether! You're out of your league!
To the socalled men who criticize Ms. Couric. They evidently do not know what a real woman is like. As for that Palin character she looks like she has been ridden very hard. Keep it coming Katie. You are awesome.
One of the most revolting thoughts of the week. Is CNN somehow beholden to CBS, because this story is a real head scratcher.
She has nothing over on Sarah Palin. Palin is a 10 that includes her conservative views and Katie is a 6 , look closer she not all of that and she is insecure and her liberal views hurt the USA .
What in the world is wrong with you people doing all the trash talking to each other? Is this topic – or any topic, really – worthy of that?
I can pretty well guarantee that if you were talking to your neighbor face to face, you wouldn't have either the courage or the bad manners to say the stuff you're tossing back and forth from the relative anonymity of the Internet.
When people retreat from real interpersonal relationships – and the modicum of civility that they require for most people – and start spending more and more of their time in virtual reality, bravely trashing strangers from cyberspace, we're in big trouble as a society. All this Internet bluster is a sign of personal weakness and outright cowardice.
"Sarah Palin reads the only magazine she needs to read, The Bible !!"
That right there is pretty funny.
I admire her talent
I agree with you Wild Bill,except for the TV host part she even sucks with her gig on Fox.She must have shown Murdock and the rest of the guys at Fox where her talent lies.
I'll tell you this, I wish I had a chance to make Katie a happy woman! She would sure make me a happy man!
bill bonenfant: GO READ THE BIBLE....
No disrespect meant but, in reality, no one can be all things to all people. Katie, you are a lot of admirable things – just not sexy in that way. Its just a bit forced. And truly sexy never is. That's implicit.
Stop being a product and continue to be a person. Lord knows, we need people, not products.
I never said Palin was smarter than Couric. I would shoot myself if I did. I said she's just a breeder, a swimsuit object of affection created to breed kids and to have those kids breed others.
She would be great as a TV host as long as she kept wearing mini skirts and low cleavage tops.
If Sarah Palin had answered that the last magazine she read was "Good Housekeeping" would you like the interview better? Nobody asks men if they caught the last issue of Playboy magazine. Nobody asks if they cook for their spouses. Nobody asks if they drive a minivan or an SUV. Women are held to a different standard. Does anyone give a blip if Brian Williams is sexy? So, why do we care if Ms. Couric is or not? Because, it is primarily men making these decisions and they want their news and everything else, presented by a supermodel with a perky rack and a pre-baby body, hopefully wearing a skimpy bikini. Not by a grown woman in a business suit. I think that every woman should write to NBC and insist that we see more skin from Brian Williams and Lester Holt and even Matt Lauer when they are doing their JOBS. After all, we deserve to get some eye candy too. That is why tune is isn't it????
Palin is smarter then Couric? Bill, you ain't thinking to straight!!
She is definately not sexy, never has been. She makes no contibution to the evening news slot. Anyone can read the news-as she does. Her interview with Sara Palin turned me off. She had the easy part! I never thought she was talented...................it's amazing how far you can go on perkiness????? Katie had a prearranged agenda for that interview. Ever since I viewed that, I lost any and all respect for Katie Couric. Frankly, I don't care who she dates. The media gives these clowns way to much attention.
The backlash against poor Bill B is amazing. If the amount of hate filled and evil spirited comments towards him is any indicator of the general temperment of this country then we truly have lost our way and all stand accused as hipocrites calling oursleves One Nation Under God.
@ Wild Bill- That's quite possibly the most unintelligent remark in this entire post. It's supposed to be about Katie Couric. I'm surprised the CNN moderaters let your "comment" get online. Stick to the topic please.
Katie is a pretty lady, but lost a lot of credibility with the way she interviewed Sarah Palin. As a professional journalist she ought to have more respect for elected officials and former elected officials and so ought you "Wild" Bill...
I don't know of one adult that doesn't read a magazine of some sort. If she didn't read them, then she should have simply said, the only magazine I read is the Bible even though thats not a magazine. The problem shouldn't be whether or not she reads magazines, the problem is what is so bad about that question? That's all it was. A question. Attacking a interviewer for asking questions is akin to attacking an author for writing. It's so silly.
She is an intelligent and gorgeous lady who has sustained multiple family tragedies.I am sure she ignores all and any stupid comments on this site
Palin is no more than a breeder; nothing more.
I think its very interesting to read the comments about Couric disrespecting Palin. I notice that no one here, that I have seen, has mentioned HOW she disrespected Palin nor which PARTICULAR question was disrespectful. PLEASE tell which particular question or questions were offensive - word for word because I am interested and sincere in that.
Couric asked questions and Palin answered. I think it might be good to READ the questions and the answers word for word and then THINK about it. I do not think it is correct to judge anyone from on particular interview, either the one asking the question or answering the question. The 'performance' of the person being interviewed should not be used to justify anger toward the interviewer. If you did not feel comfortable with Palin's answers then direct your attention to her. For myself I have not seen Palin repeat this type of poor performance yet and I think she learned from it as we all hope, I think, that people in the public eye will do - continue to learn.
Again I invite ANYONE to quote a specific question that was 'rude'.
When are we going to get over this nonsense regarding Sister Sarah? This woman is a home spun trailer trash freak show who just happened to tap into the right wing-nut party of who-ville. What has actually happened to us as a people, a nation? No matter whether you are Dem or Rep, the wing-nut party is seperate, inconsequential, and dangerous if they continue to be allowed to fester like a boil.
Bible carrying, better-than-thou, gun packing absolute anti americans, all of them. We should all be vigilant of what they could do if the likes of Palin are allowed to occupy the air space of our country. As far as Katie goes, she is not my fav journalist, but deserves a break. She's a hard working, single mom. Totally overpaid, but that's CBS's problem. The trouble with her job now, is that she tried to be a comedienne first. After reading this comment section, I would ask Bill the Bonehead, to proof his comment first....it truly was dumb. You should leave the Bible out of this kind of stuff. Sarah is a hypocrite, just like all the rest of the thumpers.
Nevermind the subject when she interviewed Palin, the way Katie treated Sarah was despicable and revealed her political bias. In a reporter, that is a cardinal sin.
We all have political biases, for a reporter to not even attempt to disguise it is repugnant and though I was a fan before that interview, I despise her now!
Katie Couric is an intelligent, strong, and classy woman who does an excellent job as a National News Anchor for CBS. And, yes, she is also a very sexy woman and has been all her life, at any age.
I realize all this is extremely threatening to weak men, women who never bothered to educate themselves or stive to move up to great challenges in the workplace, and the ever-present narrow-minded, a segment that seems to be growing like a fungus in our society.
Nonetheless, the facts stand as stated in the first paragraph regarding Ms. Couric. Be threatened by them, by HER, if your weaknesses compel you to feel that way.
Kudos to you, Katie! I will always support you, God Bless you, and may you ever be loved by your partner, supported by your family, friends, and fans, and stay sure-footed on your path.
Katie Couric has always been a classy woman .Is everyone else just noticing that?
Katie has always had it "Going On!" What a Babe!
BillB- What a stupid statement! No wonder its uneducated idiots like you that spew hate and fear about our Country. Get back to your FoxNews trash and you can have Sarah(the quiter)Palin.
Katie has ALWAYS demonstrated grace, beauty, intelligence and charm.
I'm pretty certain that Sarah would have a hard time even defining those terms.
Dan, her husband has been found to make a lot of the decisions, negotiations, and other governmental work that the soccer mom has just lost interest in. The emails uncovered were pretty damming, including many that were classified "EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE" and were from the first dude to another outside party that did not have Ms. Palin on even a cc:
That and the fact that she quit her elected office halfway thru makes me wonder how anyone could listed to her and not laugh.
I like the thought and the brain power behind this woman.
I cannot watch the news when Couric is anchoring. She needs to go back to the Today Show and report on the newest types of kitchen utensils. She has zero credibility when it comes to reporting on anything with a serious nature.
HomerIHatetheBible – good Lord. Talk about being friggin dumb as a rock. Find a period, comma, noun, or coherent thought. And it's "etc", not "ect".
You stupid friggin rockhead.
You ARE kidding, right?
What is this Katie's "gotcha" question? "What do you read?" is a "gotcha" question?
-Only if you don't read anything.
-Only if you are too dumb not to lie and just name a newspaper –
name a magazine – any publication will do...Can't you think of anything at all?
In order to have any shot at political office, you need to be much more adept at thinking on your feet – in real time –
– Especially for the next time you look out your window to Russia, and see Putin "raise his head."
Come on ... She's sexy and she reads the news from a teleprompter that someone else wrote for her. For that she gets paid millions. She's Vanna White from "Wheel of Fortune". That's not a bad thing. People obviously like a pretty face when they listen to the news. Let's don't build up the person like there is more there than there is.
Making a big deal of Katie's "got cha" of Palhin because she didn't read a magazine. She was the executive officer of a state government that making billion dollar decisions. Feel free to disagree with her policies but don't put a Leader in the same category with a "cuttie pie news reader".
How do they get so much air in such a tiny head?
Everyone has a story to tell, lets just enjoy them sharing it with us. Life would really be a bore without the differences. I am proud of all women that rise above themselves with out even knowing it.
I luv cougars!
Somehow, sexy and Katie Couric, with that grandma short hair, don't belong in the same sentence.
That twit's time at CBS is coming to an end. She's no Diane Sawyer or Candy Crowley.
Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow and Campbel Brown are all beastly at what they do. None of them possess the skill or intellect to report the news without keeping their feeble ideas under wraps...fact not fiction
When I watch news today, I miss the integrity Walter Cronkite brought to the profession..
There was a reason why John McCain's staff kept Sarah Palin very "sheltered", not much substance, but she absolutely enthralled the Bible Belt. She did more to elect President Obama than the entire Democratic party. Given Senator McCain's age and past health issues, any one with a brain realized that she would be one biopsy from the Presidency. Ms. Couric meerly exposed her for what she was, a pretty face trying to "cute" her way to the Vice Presidency. Thank you Ms. Couric.
Couric and Palin don't begin to compare. What are people thinking? Slander is just plain tacky.
Well, great! An article about how she's gotten sexy and chic, and what's she wearing in the photo? A dull grey business suit! Duh....
She looks good if you think Colonel Klebb
of the K.G.B. looks good.
Are you serious? She stared Palin down with the questions "What newspapers and magazines do you read?" and "What do you know about international relations?"
While I agree Katie is not sexy, Sarah Palin is not either. The only thing she is is an opportunistic, un-educated, hate-filled shark.
Katie Couric would not be glamorous by any stretch of the imagination! No amount of makeup would make a difference. Beside that, she has no interviewing skills and appears very awkward. She also asks imappropriate/stupid questions! She is certainly not worth NEAR the bezilion dollars she's paid! Diane Sawyer no the other hand is a true professional plus much more attractive. I stopped watching Couric when she got that $64 million contract way back when! What a waste of money!
I never watch Katie anymore since the election of Obama. All during the campaign, she fawned over Obama and Joe Biden – any objective person could tell that it wasn't fair and balanced news! She didn't ask Joe Biden what magazines he reads! I am not a big Sarah Palin fan, but I thought that Katie's interview of her was a purposeful smear job. I don't watch any news from the Big 3 networks anymore – it is not objective.
The 17 yr. age difference with the beau? I always wonder, would he have dated her if she'd been that age , and ,say, a cashier at the supermarket?
no sexy there.
That's funny...a cougar, slow down tiger, she ain't no cougar now. I will say the most resemblence of a cougar is like that show, what's it called? Horny cougar or something like that? That chic from Friends, I don't know the name of the show but will say she is probably a great example of a cougar, or at least, fist the description.
I gotta say, I thought she was mature young. She looks pretty good for a woman her age, she looks fine. And she's dating a younger man? Hey, I like older woman by nature so it does seem that older women do like younger men.
But it is the greatest myth of all time, is it maturity? Physical appeal? Intelligence? Actually, is pretty much all of the above. Sexual appeal is arguably the biggest consensus and overall, it is true because let's face it, when you see an older woman date a younger man, do a test. Body image is everything, is about who they may relate to you not just personality wise, but physically appealed. That's one of the biggest tales in human history, everyone knows that.
Regarding the Bonenfant comment,i can only guess which part of the country you live in, perhaps the bible belt, maybe even the redneck area. If you honestly believe S. Palin has more brains than K. Couric, your brains have to be in a part of your body where the sun would never shine. Have a wonderful day, IDIOT
the bill bonenfant comment?!?!?!??! REALLY!!!!!! i don't even know where to start. God help America.
My wife is also 17 years older than I am. We've been married for 14 years – LONG before the stupid term "cougar" came along.
If you're in a relationship, the label doesn't apply. You're only a cougar if you're on the prowl.
Matt, I agree – to get paid millions for reading a Teleprompter and wearing raccoon make-up ... we're all in the wrong profession! I don't think Couric is an awful reporter; she's just much better off doing features and "Today"-type programming than commandeering a prime-time news desk.
Emo? Really? Good lord. I thought people weren't using that term anymore since it makes no sense whatsoever.
Why get political about Katie been sexy?, She is sexy alright and Sarah Palin is sexy too but dumb, how could you read a Bible when you can not read a magazine? Please let be real.
I use to like Katie as well. I stopped watching her after the Sarah Palin interview. Not because I support Sarah but because I thought it was horrible that Katie was proud of how she treated another woman. It is hard enough to move up in the world without having another woman trying to drag you back down... Katie should be ashamed! I know a lot of people lost their respect for Katie that day!!!
she needs to go so others can have a job
A couple of years ago, I watched as Couric interviewed actress Kelly Martin of the "Christie" series. Again and again, Couric would ask Kelly a question and then interrupt her before she had time to complete her sentence, in effect, stepping all over her answers. I couldn't believe such rudeness by Couric.
Katie is just like all other celeb rites. She puts more money into her pride than she does into feeding the poor and suffering of the world.
I'm sure she enjoys her publicity when she gives a GNAT'S amount to the poor and suffering but likes it more when she shows the CAMEL'S portion of her PRIDE which is the 'deadliest' of the SEVEN DEADLIEST SINS.
Now Katie, give us a sugar coated lie about your giving to the suffering.
I don't care if Katie or Tom Brokaw has a sexy side. All I want is good, fair, both sides, news reporting.
Just a nit, but she's 53, not 52. Stil looks pretty good though.
the last thing Katie "the Clown" Curic needs is more eyeliner. I can't stand listening to this liberal
Hey she looks great. So she looks hot, it does nothing to diminish her except in the eyes of petty, insecure people who feel better about themselves by dissing others. THAT, sadly, is the world we live in. She should dress like that for the news. I don't have a problem getting my news from someone who is really easy on the eyes. A brow wrinkle and a double chin do not make you more credible.
Katie is cute deceptively sweet shark....I never bought her act...she is not a journalist and she is ineffective of a talking head...Diane Sawyer will kick her butt.
Bill...hahahahahaha...thanks, I needed a good laugh.
But yeah, Katie Couric can be quite attractive – she looks great for 52.
I admire Ms. Couric's talent, tenacity and all she has achieved in her young career. To all the haters ("she is reader nothing more"... ), are more nostalgic then realists. The last news anchor worth his/her salt was probably Kronkite (give him that for WWII/Korea/Vietnam coverage). However, that doesn't mean others didn't pay the "price" for rising to the top – including Katie's Sarah "The Empress" Palin doesn't have any clothes interview, which exposed Palin for what she's all about (at the risk of alienating a majority of the so-called "conservatives").
She looks awesome for a 52 year old – man or woman. Hope she has a loving and lasting relationship with her partner. I'm sure he's not into this relationship simply because he's dating a famous/pretty person – she probably has more to offer then most when it comes to a meaningful conversation!
Well, bill bonenfant.......your comments leave no doubt, proof positive that there are still morons out there that have little or no clue of what's really going on in the world today. And for the record, People is a magazine....sports illistrated is a magazine.....the Bible? Have you ever actually even seen one?
if Palin is not a bonehead, why did she go to five colleges before she graduated. Why did she leave the University of hawaii because there were to many natives there. She is a dummie.
These new "journalist" are nothing but readers. and what little news they read is mostly FLUFF. Sure you get the same headlines as the other networks and then you get the cat stuck in the tree breaking news. If these networks would just report more on the crap the government is wasting money on everyday I might watch and then I might follow up and do something about it.
People, the Harper's Bazaar article starts by saying she "stared down Sarah Palin." Your knocking Sarah Palin for not reading – try it yourself eh. The bible is not a magazine. Bill was making a bit of a literary jump to make the point that Sarah Palin prioritized her efforts on being the Governor of Alaska and Mom, versus a federal political candidate.
Everyone needs to chill out.
Katie Couric is indeed a talented and intelligent person. I think most people would however agree she cross the line a bit with Sarah Palin. Not because she was rude or too harsh, but because she did not apply the same approach to the other candidates. Charles Gibson is guilty of the same. Bear in mind President Obama was barely on the national scene before he ran for President. Had Katie taken the same approach with Mr. Obama, we may have found he knew very little of world politics either. He had never traveled to the Middle East and was very light on his tactical knowledge of Iraq or Afghanistan.
Yes, Katie needs to go. She is not talented, is not a reporter and serves no real purpose. A talking head is what she is, without a teleprompter feeding her lines, she more than likely would fail at that. Wait, that is how the president is as well.
Cronkite and Murrow are rolling over in their graves. This why the evening news is so irrelevant know; its far more about entertainment than news.
she is definetely a COUGAR , no matter what she tries to say
Do not care for her at all.
Katie Couric and sexy in the same sentence just doesn't compute. Then again neither does Katie Couric and journalist.
Sexy and Katie Couric should never go together. Sorry.
It's either her friends or ignorant soccer moms experiencing a midlife crisis that could possibly say anything positive about her appearance. The only thing sexy or attractive about Katie Couric is her bank account.
Diane Sawyer rules. She is far more beautiful and intelligent than smug little Katie.
I think the comments received on this article are much more fascinating than the article. We have a lot of extremes here on such a mundane topic as a news anchor with a new hair-do, eyeliner, and a much younger boyfriend. The variety of views expressed here and how they are symptomatic of our current society would make for much more interesting reading than this article.
glad to see that not everyone thinks an older woman is "cougaring" after a younger man! Good for Katie! she has suffered great loss and if she is now happy, so be it.
Someone actually posted a reply asserting that Sarah Palin is intelligent? This country is truly in trouble with people like that running around....
Back to the point about Katie Couric. Fair or not women are often judged more harshly than men when it comes to fashion and behavior. Thankfully there are women such as Katie who has accepted that fact and made the best of it. For two years I dated a woman a decade older. It wasn't an issue that seemed important after the initial weirdness of it...and the weirdness was merely a byproduct of societal closed-mindedness.
I have been married to a 52 year old women for almost 12 years now. We have been together for almost 20 years we have 3 great kids 18 14 11 all boys. I think we have such a great relastionship because our ages, So go for it love is love not a number. I'm 37 so not a big deal
She's a Journalist NOT a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model. You would not and do not assign the same aesthetic approval criteria to her male counterparts. It's ridiculous that a person's professional effort and success could hinge on such useless judgement as to whether she brings a certain level of "Eye Candy" to the newsroom or is a "Cougar".
It's ironic AND fickle that we present such biased opinion on a Journalist but we insist and demand unbiased news reporting. Likewise, there is no doubt that if she chose only simple well-tailored suits and wore her hair in a more simple style you STILL would judge her as too "matronly" and STILL not focus on the journalism.
By now, she is all too aware that she must meet a certain level of appeal to be accepted by her viewers. And while she tries to live up to our expectation of appeal we ignore that Brian Williams or Matt Lauer wore black shoes 4 times in one week or that Matt Lauer was rumored to have had an affair up to the eve of his second marriage. Since then, his second wife once filed for divorce while pregnant with one of their children.
I think Katie does a great job! There seems to be some envy of her. Her hairstyle becomes her. Basic rules of hair style.....short women should wear short hair (it makes them look taller) and tall women should wear long hair (it makes them look shorter). I learned this when I was a freshman in high school. Sarah Palin doesn't begin to have the intelligence that Katie has. The only reason Palin gets attention is because of her looks.....not her brains. She speaks out of 2 sides of her mouth.
Agree andy...lost respect for her after the Palin interview...no one deserves being talked DOWN to ...even by peppy Katie
older women are more secure, generally done with their "issues", and more attractive than women in their 30s / 40s; other than that- shoot your damn TV and use your time more constructively than watching a fake world on TV
Now Cronkite; there was a man who could wear haute couture and eyeliner!
Dirty old men are considered lecherous in their chasing of younger women. Now that the women of today are empowered, they flaunt their sexuality in their middle years and it's correct for our times to be called them a "cougar?" May I grub a Virginia Slims from you?
" good looking cougar " ???? YIKES ... Thank god for the internet !!!
"perky and no talent".........says it best.
As previously stated, PLEASE fire the hairdresser. She'd look so much better with some hair! I know the models wear the short, sleek look but it reminds me of Elvis and Vitalis.
Katie is an attractive female who has reached for the stars. She got there, but I wish she had stayed on the Today show where she was more effective. As to the folks dragging Mrs. Palin into this discussion, it proves that Palin's admirers are as clueless as Palin. Birds of a feather flock together. It just scares the heck out of me to think that these people who don't do their homework could rise up to take this counrty down a dangerous path. I'm not in agreement with all that Obama does, but at least he's got a brain. I don't want a quitter and a whiner living at 1600 Pennsyllvania Avenue.
Walt had them all beat.
Katie has something Palin will never have,Brains and class.Katie didn't have to go to 5 jr colleges before she could get a degree.Maybe Palin should have spent time teaching her daughter abour sex education instead of preaching the bible,atleast Katie doesn't have a knocked up teenager.Maybe Katie was mean to her,She did ask her difficult questions,like what do you read?She didn't know she doesn't read.
The bible is not a magazine.
Heck both Couric and Palin are hot; but, Couric has a little more sense of the stupidity going on around her. She has been in the media for a while and when you stop and think about the fact that she lost her husband, you know this gal's been hurt. She pays her dues.
Palin is just milking the opportunity and actually believes she has a clue into the complexities of modern governance. She makes W look like a genius. Looks great in jeans though. lol.
Sawyer ain't so hard on the eyes either!
I think Couric and Sawyer are smart ladies or they wouldn't have survived so long in a tough business.
Palin, I don't know, she's becoming a punchline. If she ever realizes that, who knows? Maybe she will wise up to the way she is allowing herself to be manipulated. Hopefully she won't damage her family.
Couric is clueless and partakes in "gotcha" journalism. Who watches her show??? Time for her to go!
bill bonenfant February 5th, 2010 6:22 pm ET
Katie Couric could never be sexy in a million years. To say she stared down Sarah Palin is nauseating. Sarah Palin has more brains than Katie Couric could ever think of having. Why would anyone think that because someone doesn't read a certain magazine regularly, that they are less than intelilgent. Millions of people in the world don't read regular magazines. Sarah Palin reads the only magazine she needs to read, The Bible !!
Bill, your an IDIOT !!!!! Couric is VERY intelligent, Palin dumb as a frigging ROCK !!!! Don't hide what side your on Bible Banging fool like you is how we get all the one sided bible banging IDIOT in Congress and plus all of your cheating senators ect........
hey bill bonenfant – You're a riot! I hear Conan's looking for writers. You'd be perfect!
It isn't a good look. Makes her look hard and old. It is true that people actually watch her "report" the news? She isn't capable of doing that so instead she just reads whatever it is put in front of her. Time to go away.
Katie appears to be a nice person, I think I would like her if I knew her, but of course we,the public, do not know her. She has stayed close/true to her most important role in the face of the challenge and sad reality of her daughters father's death.
Katie and I share the same birthday, January 7. But for several years she was 2 years older than I am. Then it was only 1 year. Now we are the same age. As her birth year shifts, then I can only wait until she younger than I am.
Good for her. She's a talented beautiful woman. Hey she's happy, go for it!
She's way too liberal (politically) for me, but I had a dream
about her once, and in that dream, she was pretty hot! :-P
People thought initially because she's a woman she wouldn't be able to compete. What baloney, it's all about story selection. I watch her because she consistently chooses the topics I have the most interest in.
"Couric is simply a perky, no talent token. Dress it up if you like, but the facts remain unchanged."
This could hardly be better stated.
Fox news has been reporting that it is an SUV and CNN has been reporting its a car. Who has done their research?
Katie is smart, witty and very pretty. Sarah Palin is pretty. Anyone running for Vice President should be smart, well read and have a sense of humor at the very least. Pretty..... is not so important.
Sarah Palin doesn't even belong in the same conversation.... how does everything turn to her? Katie didn't make sarah look stupid, sarah made sarah look stupid. Are we so on the stupid end in this country that we let ourselves be consumed by someone even dumber...mercy – katie has come a long way, I just wish she would quit wearing such dull colors of clothing and jazz herself up...
So THIS is what you do to help your ratings . . . how many male anchors would have done this?
Katie is an embarrassment to the broadcast industry . . . "perky" should never, ever be part of the job qualification criteria.
i love the new look
I never watched Katie until she exposed sarah palin for the "caribou barbie" that she is. Truth be known, if palin looked like Eleanor Roosevelt, nobody would pay attention to her.
Thank you, katie !!!
Hey Billy Bonerhead! To say that Palin has more brains than Couric can only have been spewed from another dumb Republican who just can't accept the fact that Miss Prissy Sarah is friggin stupid.
you owe me a new keyboard, as your comment made me spit my soda all over mine!
katie was right with regards to sarah palin." palin is an idiot " an anyone in the coutry that was to vote for her should she run in 2012 has got to have lost their ever loving minds this woman is a dits in my personal opinion in fact she doesn't even deserve to be on the same stage with true presidental material thank you
People need to get off of katie's back an leave her the h alone an let her live her life as she sees fit i personaly think that she is HOT ,HOT AN SEXY LOOKING TO BOOT. I have been with older women when i myself was a lot younger than today. an in my own personal opinion they know what it is all about an what is happening." i say go katie go" live life to the fullest an enjoy it all thank you
Age does not matter....lets see what her "boy toy" thinks when he is 45 and she is 62....LOL....at least he will inherit her fortune.
I don't like that someone thinks we need to even discuss whether or not Katie Couric is sexy. Does anyone ever talk about how sexy Brain is? She is an excellent newcaster and I will continue to watch her. Bill Bonenfant sounds like an idiot. And lay off her hair, as if that's of ANY importance....
i agree w/you bill, even if the rest of the cnn groupies don't. i lost all respect for couric along about that time as well.
good for Katie. have watched her since her days in the Pentagon. as good as she looks she's worked darn hard to get to be the anchor at CBS.
Folks – I sincerely want to ask you all a question. In response to Bill Bonenfant comment about Sarah Palin and her reading the Bible, who are you more afraid of:
a) Muslims wearing turbans: or,
b) Republicans who carry a Bible in their right hand and a gun in the left hand.
Katie is what is wrong with news today – she is reader nothing more no matter how much you spin it. She needs to go but she is not alone for the others are just like her.
We need real news people unless your pleased with bias reporting and absolutely no ethics or pride.
But you have to give this to her she millions doing nothing, I wish I could.
How did Sarah Palin get brought into this? Does EVERYTHING have to be US vs. THEM political crapola?
Katie looks great and its nice to hear that older women/younger man relationships are out there and can work.
bill bonenfant said "To say she stared down Sarah Palin is nauseating. Sarah Palin has more brains than Katie Couric could ever think of having." Considering the source (and the rest of that comment), Katie should take that as a compliment.
I agree with John...she needs to fire her hairdresser! Honestly, I just don't see her "sexy" side. She's small and rather awkward at times, especially with the new do.
Couric is simply a perky, no talent token. Dress it up if you like, but the facts remain unchanged.
Just read that SILLY comment that Sarah Palin is smarter than Katie Couric, and the even goofier comment that Sarah Palin only has to read the Bible! People who think like that, go to Haiti and break the law and get thrown in jail
Sarah wolf-murderer Palin? I quit the party when they put her on the ticket.
The Bible is in magazine form now? I knew we had sunk low but....wow.
so, bill bonenfant, the bible is a magazine. which one? MAD? and what got ms. palin in trouble was newspapers. let me guess, the bible is like a newspaper too.
I watched her until she showed complete disrespect to Sarah Palin.I thought she acted as if she was superior and treated Palin as an animal in training.Never watched her again and have NO respect for her now.
Katie needs to fire her hairdresser and let to grow. The short, bobbed look is all wrong for her.
Katie Couric could never be sexy in a million years. To say she stared down Sarah Palin is nauseating. Sarah Palin has more brains than Katie Couric could ever think of having. Why would anyone think that because someone doesn't read a certain magazine regularly, that they are less than intelilgent. Millions of people in the world don't read regular magazines. Sarah Palin reads the only magazine she needs to read, The Bible !!
She is definitely a hottie!
One good looking Cougar.
52 never looked better
I like Katie's style. I did not watch her as anchor while Tom Brokaw was still around, but I like her speaking style and topics better than Brian, who took Brokaw's place. Now I watch her all the time.
But...never have liked, and still don't....her black eyeliner. Ugh.
The whole idea of "predator" and "prey" is just stupid. If that's how most people think of relationships, no wonder the divorce rate is so high. I"m married to a much younger man and, like Ms. Couric, it just happened.
