CBS Lipos Chubby Couric

CBS employees slimmed a Katie Couric pic (via PhotoShop) as they prepared to promo her to lead the erstwhile Tiffany network's news division. As Cronkite readies to crown Couric as CBS Evening News anchor, Rather's spirit seems to be haunting that once august division. In addressing Uncle Walter's intro for the perky princess, (remember) a top CBS source said, "This is a bold statement of continuity  and 'trust,' a commitment to the quality of the CBS Evening News." Perhaps, it's more of a comment on continuity rather than a transferrence of truth.
