Bart: Add More News To ‘Evening News’

Variety’s Peter Bart has some advice for CBS News president Sean McManus:

“Since the network’s epiphany in recruiting Katie Couric as anchor has failed to reignite the nightly news, how about reversing the second part of your revisionist approach? That means injecting some actual news back into your nightly equation and dropping some of your riveting “lifestyle” stories, such as the three-minute interview with choreographer Twyla Tharp. Since you’ve essentially reduced Iraq coverage to a single sentence and North Korea to a clause, will Katie next try to encapsulate the approaching election results in a 30-second soundbite?”
