Why would you choose this venue to cry about perceived sexist slights from 20 years ago?
Ex-CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric, now with ABC, gave Sunday's commencement address (http://uvatoday.org/blog/?p=3890) at her alma mater, the University of Virginia. When it came to her time at CBS News, Couric cast herself as a "mistreated" "trailblazer," who got "burned" by critics.

Couric suggested her critics were motivated by sexism: "In those first few months at CBS, TV critics wrote about my clothes, my hair, my make-up, even the way I held my hands. Some said I lacked ‘gravitas,’ which I’ve since decided is Latin for ‘testicles.'"

It was a remarkably self-pitying performance for someone who made $15 million a year (http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/news/2011-02-15-couric-contract-speculation_N.htm) reading the introductions to news reports. "My story may have played out in the public eye, but it's by no means unique," Couric told the graduates. " Every one of you will at some point be confronted by naysayers and learn that life isn't always fair. You'll feel cheated, you'll be mistreated. You'll wonder, 'when will I be loved?'"

Another poor little liberal relishing her victim hood. Boo-f'n-hoo.

I'm sorry but life is too short to give Katie Couric 33 minutes and 25 seconds of my time.
