Couric Eschews Ratings
Katie Couric continues to be upbeat about the CBS Evening News even as it remains firmly stuck in third place with few if any audience gains month to month. "I've never really judged my worth by ratings," Couric told today's (Monday) Washington Pos t. It was good to be number one on the Today show, but to me it was more important to do a good show. Our broadcast, I think, is of really good quality. Hopefully more people will come to it." Couric also said that she can identify with Hillary Clinto n: "I'm sensitive to coverage that can be very subtly stacked against her, maybe a headline that has a little more snarkiness about her. ... I understand that kind of coverage because I've experienced it myself.".
