Katie Couric has literally become the “Incredible Shrinking Anchor-woman”. Move over South Beach, Atkins, Sonoma diet, Jenny Craig and lyposuction. There is a new diet sheriff in town that sheds pounds, lightens skin and gets rid of any unwanted blemishes in mere minutes … its called “photoshop”.
“Besides Photoshop, the only other way to lose 20 pounds in a matter of seconds would be to hack off a limb,” joked Samantha Heller, the senior clinical nutritionist at NYU Medical Center.
One really has to wonder what they were thinking as Katie will be live in the anchor seat without the ability of photoshop to shed the 20 ponds. According to reports Katie Couric and CBS were unaware that the original picture had doctored. I guess there is still no one at CBS in charge of fact checking. Isn’t that why Katie has a job and why Dan Rather is gone?
“The picture was retouched without the knowledge of Ms. Couric or CBS News management,” a CBS spokesman said. Couric, who was made aware of the picture’s alteration yesterday, joked that she liked the original better. “There’s more of me to love,” she quipped. (New York Post)
