The idea of paying Katie Couric eight figures to anchor a news show that is in last place does not sit well in the upper echelons of CBS News, where her hiring as TV’s first female anchor is seen as a noble but failed experiment.
So claims the New York Post, saying Couric will take a pay cut or get the boot from The CBS Evening News. (She makes $15 million a year.) Of course the right-wing Post, owned (like Fox News) by Rupert Murdoch, never really liked Couric in the first place.
