I was a bit shocked when I read CBS multi-million dollar news anchor Katie Couric didn’t write her own blog. The shame of it all. Just for the record The Insite doesn’t have a ghost writer. And I can’t seem to get Insite staffers to help me out on the blog when it comes to writing. Here’s an excerpt of Couric report:
The reference is to serious CBS news icon Katie Couric, who was ensnared recently in yet another embarrassing brouhaha. One of her producers was fired for plagiarizing a Wall Street Journal story on libraries, which Couric used in a video blog. Although coverage focused on the act of plagiarism, the real revelation was that Couric, who makes something like $15 million a year, doesn’t even write her own blog. Even worse, the offending “video notebook” item was framed in the style of a personal remembrance, beginning with, “I still remember when I first got my library card.” In other words, not only was Couric okeydokey with someone else writing her personal journal, she was equally okeydokey with the writer making up her childhood memories.
