Katie Couric, and the Los Angeles May Day Immigration Rally Incident
Laura at 11D asks, "What's Wrong With Katie?" and then proceeds to answer her own question. She's prompted by a NYT story which questions whether Katie Couric, the first female lead news anchor in prime-time, is the reason the ratings for the CBS Evening News have been lagging.
Angry Brown Butch responds to seeing news footage of the Los Angeles May Day conflict in "LAPD bruality at May Day immigration protests":
"I'd heard about the police brutality at the immigration protests in LA, but I didn't see this footage until today. It looks like a warzone. It is a warzone - the police vs the people. It's horrifying."
You may not have caught this story on the news -- for a summary of the events of that day, see Wikipedia's page, The Los Angeles May Day Mêlée.
