Katie Couric is on VERY THIN ICE.

Basically, if the world could stop sucking Katie Couric's dick, I'd probably be a much happier, well-rested, less-perpetually-furious person.

Why? Well, maybe it's because she's fucking awful as an evening news host. Maybe it's because she just gets handed assignments, like this monthly column in Glamour magazine that will start next month. Maybe it's because her awful lesbian haircut angers me.

Or possibly, just possibly, it could be because her yearly salary of $15 fucking MILLION DOLLARS is more than than the entire annual budgets of NPR’s "Morning Edition" and "All Things Considered" COMBINED, as this article in Columbia Journalism Review notes. Yes, that means together. As in, one woman makes more than two legitimate radio shows that reach millions of people and do the journalistic world a lot of better good than the woman who interviewed Lil Wayne and talked to him about his "tats" and "tude."

... Yeah. Fuck that shit. Entirely.

The only good thing Katie Couric has ever done wasn't even her. It was Auto-Tune the News, using her voice, which my boyfriend showed me over the summer and which has become a daily rotation on my YouTube schedule. Very thin ice, indeed.
