Introducing the new Katie Couric

Katie Couric

I can never understand why magazines and newspapers do this. Do they really think, in this day and age of the web and incredible news scrutiny and an increasingly media and tech-savvy public, that no one would find out? Just looking at the two photos of Katie Couric, you can tell that one has been airbrushed. They made her thinner, the coloring is different, and even the dress looks a little different (though that last one might just be the quality of the photos I've seen). Touch up is one thing. That happens to photos every day. This goes a bit further.

Reminds me of the time that TV Guide had Oprah Winfrey's head on a pic of Raquel Welch's Ann-Margaret's body. Yeah, like people wouldn't notice that.

I don't like the airbrushed, touch up look of Katie Couric at all. But this is a looks-driven industry in entertainment and news and those magazines are so afraid to see the real sides of these celebrities. That if some stars look too chubby-looking or pack on some weight, they panic and criticize them. What's happened to him or her? They need to get off this "everybody has to look so fit and perfect" mentality. Trust me, we're not going to look 18 or 20 anymore and these magazines need to realize that about people like Katie. I commend CBS's suits/execs for lashing at the magazine that airbrushed the picture behind Katie's back.

We all went to school with (and awkwardly smiled at) the chick on the left. We all wanted to bone (yeah, chicks too) the chick on the right.

The saddest part about the whole thing is that there is absolutely nothing wrong with the original picture.
