Tonight, as last night, Katie Couric will anchor an hour-long Evening News. But Couric tells the New York Observer’s Felix Gillette she’d like to anchor an hour every night. “I really would like more time” says Couric, “Because I think time is not our friend at the Evening News.”
“Those interviews that you did with her, I mean, she made a terrible impression in those interviews and I think that’s when the bloom came off this rose right there,” Schieffer said, adding, “And I would say that even if you were not sitting here.”
Couric tells Gillette, “The interviews were important. I don’t mean to sound too self-congratulatory, because anytime a candidate does an interview, if it’s properly done, it should be revealing. Quite frankly, I’ve been disappointed by the lack of persistence I’ve seen in a lot of political interviews this season.”
