Katie Couric on Diane Sawyer: ‘I Wonder Whom She Blew This Time’

In a juicy brand new tell-all guide, Couric comes across as brash, striving, and self-absorbed, and Sawyer is really a Machiavellian, often-inscrutable workaholic.

For Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer and Christiane Amanpour, the minute of the fact is planning to arrive—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 time’s seriously depressing or elsewhere world that is alarming by moving around and poring over bound galleys of this Information Sorority, veteran journalist Sheila Weller’s gossipy chronicle for the rise (and periodic stumbles) of three of tv news’ best-known women.

In Weller’s narrative—which, as the subtitle indicates, aspires to report “the (Ongoing, Imperfect, Complicated) Triumph of Women in TV Information”—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 insecurity—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).

Amanpour may be the reigning queen associated with the warzone, more actually courageous and resourceful than her male colleagues in perilous combat circumstances, however with an periodically off-putting feeling of ethical superiority which, along side her posh accent that is british sometimes renders her brittle and inaccessible to American audiences—a element which seemingly have hampered her profession. متابعة قراءة “Katie Couric on Diane Sawyer: ‘I Wonder Whom She Blew This Time’”
