Couric Now Targeted By Former Nbc Coworkers

Not only are some of Katie Couric's coworkers at CBS News expressing criticism of her abilities as Evening News anchor ("It's damaging, and it's really tacky," Couric told New York magazine about the anonymous quotes), but now comes a former member of the NBC Today staff to do the same thing. In a message posted on the TVNewser blog, the staffer writes that while Today show booking producers prepared a detailed background summary on persons invited to be interviewed for the show, including suggested questions for Couric, Matt Lauer, Ann Curry and Al Roker, Couric "couldn't be bothered" to read the material and would "wing it." The staffer added that Couric "would frequently ask questions that did not pertain to anything in the interviewee's background and we'd make her look intelligent in the edit room."
