Katie Couric, now 80% less awkward

My next piece about Katie Couric’s move to the evening news is up at Alpha Mom:

There is no question that the words people are using to describe Katie’s performance indicate a general unease about a woman anchoring such a major news show. Did anyone mention Brian WIlliams’ tie on the night he took over for Tom Brokaw? Did anyone even notice? I have never read a review of a male news anchor with half as many emotionally-charged descriptions as the ones used to dissect Katie, although isn’t that Charles Gibson such a cute little grumple-puss?
