CBS News anchor Katie Couric has landed Sarah Palin's second major broadcast interview. The network said Tuesday that Couric's interview will take place on Sunday, Sept. 28 and Monday, Sept 29 and air the next day, on Monday and Tuesday, ahead of the vice-presidential debate later in the week. Meanwhile, tensions mounted between the McCain campaign and NBC/MSNBC after McCain, during a guest appearance, described Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski as "a supporter of Senator Obama." Brzezinski, clearly irritated by the remark, responded, "'Supporter of Senator Obama?' I'm not sure I would characterize myself that way." Brzezinski is the daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski, who served as National Security Advisor in the Carter White House. But she pointed out that her brother Ian works for McCain's campaign. Also on Tuesday McCain's wife Cindy expressed outrage over the way she and her husband were treated on ABC's The View last week. "They picked our bones clean," she complained.
