When distant and unfamiliar and complex things are communicated to great masses of people, the truth suffers a considerable and often a radical distortion. The complex is made over into the simple, the hypothetical into the dogmatic, and the relative into an absolute.

Katie Couric made her CBS News début last night. It appears to me that she is bringing a bit of the morning show to the evening news, which may not be a bad idea considering the evening news needs some new ideas along with new blood.
Admittedly, I am a Brian Williams watcher and I rather like his somewhat harder hitting style, but Couric segments were a bit more in depth. I am looking forward to her interview President Bush tonight.
