More changes at CBS: Katie's doc hired

Katie CouricThey're not just changing the sets and the theme music over at The CBS Evening News, they're also changing the personnel. In a move that is becoming more and more controversial, CBS has gotten rid of medical reporter Elizabeth Kaledin and hired Katie Couric's personal doctor, Jonathan LaPook. Kaledin says she is "heartbroken" by the move.

LaPook is not only Katie's doc, he's also the son-in-law of veteran TV producer Norman Lear.

Maybe we could use a new song for Katie, sung to the theme from one of Lear's shows, Maude:

Miss Couric had a colonosopy
She didn't care if the whole world looked
CBS got rid of Liz Kaledin
And then they hired Dr. Lapook

Hey, I never said I was Cole Porter.

I predict Katie Couric will NOT be anchoring the CBS Evening News by the time May ratings arrive. She's just not the "IT" that CBS needs to win the ratings war. She's also uncomfortable to watch. I just don't feel confident getting world news from her. She needs to work for "E" rather than the Tiffany Network. Giving Elizabeth Kaledin the boot was just another idiotic move by CBS News management. She and John Roberts were ASSETS that were shown the door by the ASSES in charge.

I always liked Elizabeth Kaledin and her reports on the news. I hope some other network will be smart enough to scoop her up (God, please! Not FOX News!), and that somebody at TVSquad will keep us up to date on her whereabouts.
