Surprise, Surprise! Obama's Approval Rating Goes Up Following Bin Laden's Death

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaDonald Trump

obama approval rating goes up

You know things are going your way when even Donald Trump is praising you!

Following the death of Osama Bin Laden, President Barack Obama's approval rating has risen substantially, according to a NY Times/CBS News poll.

Last month, only 46% of people approved of his job performance, and now that number is up to 57%.

The big question will be whether or not Obama is able to sustain his newly found support.

Has your opinion of Obama changed since Bin Laden's death? Do U currently approve of his job performance?

CBS News Anchor Drama: Couric Out, Scott Pelley For Certain In

Filed under: TV NewsKatie Couric

So here'e the sitch:

Kate Couric is leaving CBS News. That's a done deal. It's happening. She's bidding the gig bon vovage and she isn't looking back. Now, the real question on everyone's minds is who will replace her. Well, wouldn't you know it, we've got an answer for you!

Turns out, CBS News Chariman Jeff Fager has the perfect man for the job - Scott Pelley, best known for his work as a 60 Minutes correspondent. Scott is very well-respected and has been the Chairman's top pick for the job since it became evident there was a need to replace Katie.

But more so, sources reveal that at the moment, Scott is the only choice the suits have over at CBS, as they can't seem to agree on anyone else as a backup. Scotty is their man.

Which means the only thing left to do is make the transition from Katie to Scott on the show. This has to be handled delicately, however, as the head honchos don't want to offend Katie in hopes that she'll stay with the network to do a syndicated show at the network and "maintain a presence at CBS News." No word yet if Katie has ANY interest in that, however.

You know what might help her decide? $$$ (We hear it talks!)

CBS' Early Show Cleans House

cbs early show cleans house

CBS will ring in the new year with an almost entirely new Early Show crew.

Starting Jan 3, anchors Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez, and weatherman Dave Price will be gone from the show. According to CBS execs, they'll still be working for CBS News on-air…just on different programs.

Here's what CBS News had to say about Harry Smith's new role:

"[He] will shift his focus to hard news with an expanded role as primary substitute anchor on The Evening News with Katie Couric, Face the Nation and Sunday Morning while continuing to report major stories for all CBS News broadcasts."

And here's CBS News/Sports president Sean McManus on Harry, Maggie, and Dave's futures at CBS:

"We appreciate Harry, Maggie and Dave's countless contributions to The Early Show and are looking forward to the contributions they each will continue to make at CBS News."

The only member of the news team who will remain on The Early Show is Erica Hill, who will become a co-anchor with Chris Wragge.

Other new Early Show members include news reader Jeff Glor, who was an anchor on CBS Evening News' Saturday edition and weatherperson Marysol Castro, who was a weather/feature correspondent on ABC News' weekend edition of Good Morning America.

Guess we'll see how things play out with this new team. We'll be sorry to see the old team go, but we're glad to hear that none of them will be out of a job!

Thoughts???

Antoine Dodson's Still Around!

Filed under: Silly!Katie Couric

We would have thought his 15 minutes dried up awhile ago, but it looks like you can't keep a good man like Antoine Dodson down for long!

Antoine, better known as the creator of the Bed Intruder Song, is still getting tons of press, even from the likes of Katie Couric!

Check out this report Katie did on Antoine for CBS News! (above)

We're all for Antoine getting some more recognition, but really Katie? Isn't the president doing something worth while? Aren't we still in a war? Is this really all there is for you to do a report on???

P.S. - Nice weave, BB!
