Katie Couric's salary may be slashed. Heaven forbid!!!!
CBSNEWS anchorwoman and 60 MINUTES contributor Katie Couric faces a dramatic pay cut at the network, insiders tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

CBS boss Les Moonves is determined to save money and trim expenses at the former crown jewel of broadcasting, from top to bottom.

Couric, the highest paid TV news personality in history, commands over $14 million a year, plus bumps for non-EVENING NEWS appearances.

But her salary is now in the direct line of fire, network insiders explain.

"She makes enough to pay 200 news reporters $75,000 a year!" demands a veteran producer. "It's complete insanity."

The angry source continues: "We report with great enthusiasm how much bankers are making, how it is out of step with reality during a recession. We'll look at Katie!"

Couric's $300,000 a week paycheck has become the obsession of disgruntled CBS staff, just as deep layoffs rock the fishbowl.

A populist backlash against Couric's cash is said to be forming inside the newsroom.

Dozens of employees -- including staff members in D.C., San Francisco, Miami, London, Los Angeles and Moscow -- are being let go, the NEW YORK OBSERVER reports.

Couric's current CBS contract expires next year.

Its called a payoff, not payroll.

Shes been through all 10 years of the bullshit we have and she hasn't opened her fucking mouth once to say anything against the government.

She may have made some passing blows to random people but she didn't outright oppose them.

She isn't a news reporter, shes a mouthpiece.

Re: Katie Couric's salary may be slashed. Heaven forbid!!!!
The straight truth is that EVERYONE who makes over a certain dollar amount should have their pay slashed. The money isn't magically created, comes from somewhere - labor.

The reality is that labor produces much of the wealth in this country but that wealth is retained in disproportionate amounts at the top of the corporate food chain.

Think about it. Jobs were off-shored. Production was off-shored all to lower costs yet prices kept rising and most certainly profits kept rising - to a point.

Now suddenly we have a rash of "bankruptcies". Why? because the earning potential (profit) of the top tier is finally being impacted ( because they decimated they consumer base by slashing their jobs and pay)and they realize that it is more profitable to close up shop and start a new scheme, screwing their already under paid employees and suppliers.

The catch is now they are screwing China instead of US citizens and there WILL be a price to pay.

...but... what will Katie do if she only brings in $150,000.00 per week? She has expenses, after all!

Who needs Katie to read the news? We get all the real news on the internet, and then we have cable news if we want to watch ridiculous spin. Are there like 60 old geezers watching Katie with their rabbit ear TVs?

...I mean she has REAL expenses! Not like the rest of us.

Imagine her living expenses: huge property taxes on her estate(s), chauffeurs, maids, gardeners, wardrobe, haute cuisine, etc...

I'm really worried for her!
