After 20 Presidential Debates Where Is Katie Couric?


This has been a question that has bounced around recently, but I had not heard or read any real coverage of this matter until tonight.  The story provides another reason why CBS News has slipped from the days of Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather, and why news junkies head to the all-news cable networks.

Eight months and more than 20 debates into podium season, Ms. Couric has yet to get anywhere near the big stage.

How did the highest-paid anchor on evening television get upstaged by Brian Williams, Brit Hume, Charles Gibson, Wolf Blitzer, Tim Russert, George Stephanopoulos, Campbell Brown, Chris Wallace, Natalie Morales and on and on?

The official explanation from CBS: Ms. Couric was the victim of circumstance.
