Poll: Couric’s Perkiness Has Its Limits With Republicans

She may be “cute,” but she’s also “liberal” and “biased.” At least that’s what a new research study says about Katie Couric, who starts her ridiculously hyped gig as CBS Evening News anchor September 5.

Via USA Today:

As they did with CBS’ Dan Rather for years, conservative Republicans see Couric as “liberal” and “biased,” while Democrats, independents and liberal Republicans gave favorable opinions. By comparison, the poll showed “no overall differences along partisan or ideological lines” when respondents of all stripes were asked about Williams and Gibson.

CBS News spokeswoman Kelli Edwards‘ curt response: “Rather than focusing on the survey of the day or playing word-association games, we’re concentrating on producing a high-quality broadcast.”
