For Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer and Christiane Amanpour, the minute of the fact is planning to arriveвЂ”or at the very least a book-length facsimile thereof.
News professionals and community publicists have already been distracting on their own out of this summer timeвЂ™s seriously depressing or elsewhere world that is alarming by moving around and poring over bound galleys of this Information Sorority, veteran journalist Sheila WellerвЂ™s gossipy chronicle for the rise (and periodic stumbles) of three of tv newsвЂ™ best-known women.
In WellerвЂ™s narrativeвЂ”which, as the subtitle indicates, aspires to report вЂњthe (Ongoing, Imperfect, Complicated) Triumph of Women in TV InformationвЂќвЂ”Couric comes off as brash, striving, self-absorbed, and sometimes insensitive towards the realities faced by her less well-compensated coworkers, yet steeled by individual tragedy (the cancer-related fatalities of her spouse and her sibling) and effective at big-hearted generosity.
Sawyer is really a Machiavellian, often-inscrutable workaholic who utilizes her seductive charm and apperance to expert benefit and torments news producers along with her relentless perfectionism and insecurityвЂ”an obvious result of a fraught relationship together with her judgmental, solid mom (who once delivered the adult Sawyer as a self-flagellating death spiral, Weller writes, when she criticized exactly how her television star child had made her bed).
