Forget Katie Couric. Imagine: "This is the CBS Evening News - With Amy Goodman!"

Reported by Melanie - April 8, 2006

This from CommonDreams.org:

We haven't done the poll, but our guess is that most Americans recognize the name Katie Couric.

And they wouldn't know Amy Goodman from a hole in the wall.

NBC Today Show co-anchor Katie Couric said this morning that she is leaving the show to become the anchor for the CBS Evening News.

Amy Goodman is the anchor of the award winning one-hour television and radio news program, Democracy Now!

Couric gets more ink than Amy Goodman in the mainstream press.

That's because Couric plays by the rules of the game.

Goodman doesn't.

Amy Goodman has reported more substantive news in one year that Couric has reported on in a lifetime.

Amy Goodman and Democracy Now are what Edward Murrow professed television could become.

Katie Couric and the CBS Evening News represent what he feared it would become.

(Emphasis added.)

Comment: The CBS Evening News has been dying a slow death since Walter Cronkite retired. It's time to turn out the lights, draw the curtains, and close the door.
