Our Take on the Whole Katie Couric Deal
And now, a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the workings of the Wonkette sausage factory. As always, IM screen names are pseudonyms.
Wonk 2: yeah, you're welcome to do a post, but i really have no take on it.
Wonk 1: Am surprised -- you have no take on this major media event?
Wonk 1: Of course, maybe there's not much to say -- other than that TV people make BUTTLOADS of $$$
Wonk 2: ha -- i think it's a pretty bad idea
Wonk 1: Oh, to put Katie on at nite? At least guys can have a nice pre-bedtime wank.
Wonk 2: it's a bad idea because the point of Katie Couric is that she a) talks like a teenager and it's kinda weird and b) you can see her legs!
Wonk 1: EXACTLY
Wonk 2: but desk = ratings doom
Wonk 1: Yeah, they may have to make that an open desk, visible legs.
Wonk 1: Or maybe a split screen set-up: face on one side, legs on the other
Wonk 2: see-thu desk, like glass-bottom boat
Wonk 1: Brilliant! We should be TV production execs.
Wonk 1: And I think we have just written our post on this, btw.
Wonk 2: ha, i'd say so
