Alexandria, VAKatie Couric, long-time anchor of NBCs Today, announced today that she is moving over to CBS in June and will takeover as anchor of the CBS Evening News in September, and will likely contribute to 60 Minutes as well. With her long record of liberally biased reporting on political issues, as documented by the Media Research Center (MRC) for 15 years, political coverage at the CBS Evening News under Courics direction will mean more of the same.


CBS blew a golden opportunity to upgrade its Evening News anchor slot, said MRC President Brent Bozell. CBS chose the perky, likeable, and politically liberal Katie Couric, whose biases will only reinforce CBSs reputation as a network riddled with liberally biased reporting. CBS, already in third place in the evening news ratings, has metaphorically put its anchor chair on the deck of the old media Titanic.


Since becoming co-host of NBCs Today in April 1991, Katie Couric has often used her perch to salute her liberal heroes (including Hillary Clinton and Jimmy Carter) or complain about right-wing conservatives, reports the MRC. In her years on Today, Shes lectured Charlton Heston about the need for gun control, championed the need for campaign finance reform, and even touted the wonders of Frances nanny state. A new report on Katie Courics history of liberally biased reporting can be read at www.MRC.org.
