The skinny on Couric

Katie Couric appears "significantly thinner" in a network promo magazine photo because of some good airbrushing.

The "touched-up" photo of Couric dressed in a striped business suit appears on the inside of the September issue of Watch!, which is distributed at CBS and on American Airlines flights.

CBS News President Sean McManus said he was "obviously surprised and disappointed when I heard about it." The original was taken in May, and was widely circulated to the media as an official photo of Couric.

Couric, said she hadn't known about the digitally reworked version until she saw the issue. She said, "I liked the first picture better because there's more of me to love." But of course

Gil Schwartz, executive vice president of communications for CBS Corp., said the photo alteration was done by someone in the CBS photo department who "got a little zealous."

Gawd woman.. get a clue! Really take this rude sexist issue to the world and get it on with the tell-all documentary and lawsuit! The Big News Boss completely lowered your serious feminist news-person quota by reducing you to an acceptable tele-promter reading babe?
