...don't even ignore 'em.

I know why Katie Couric’s changing jobs.

Between eight-thirty and nine this morning, the major segments on Today were promotions for new reality shows: “Honey, We’re Killing the Kids” -- how fat parents are ruining the health of their fat kids; and “God or the Girl” -- young Catholic priests-to-be struggle with commitment. Yep. Katie can’t wait to get on to the CBS Evening News and 60 Minutes. Last night, 60 Minutes’ main segment was a profile of Michelle Wie. Last week, Ed Bradley’s Tiger Woods profile consumed, maybe, two-thirds of the program. Not exactly like moving to PBS. I’ll be rooting, as I always do, for the semi-serious news people to prevail. Katie’s no Aaron Brown, but she might surprise you.
