According to nymag.com, Katie Couric slapped an editor after he added a word to the script that she didn't like...at all.
"The stress has caused her to blow up at her staff for small infractions on the set," says reporter Joe Hagan.
"During the tuberculosis story in June, Couric got angry with news editor Jerry Cipriano for using a word she detested— 'sputum' —and the staff grew tense when she began slapping him 'over and over and over again' on the arm, according to a source familiar with the scene. It had seemed like a joke at first, but it quickly became clear that she wasn't kidding."
"I sort of slapped him around," Couric said. "I got mad at him and said, 'You can’t do this to me. You have to tell me when you're going to use a word like that.' I was aggravated, there's no question about that." An insider on the set calls the slap "playful."
