Couric’s “Knowing Smile” About Schieffer

By Brian 

“When I bring up the name Bob Schieffer, Couric first affects naivete, then smiles a knowing smile and says nothing.”

This is one of the great lines from New York that speaks volumes.

Verne Gay‘s interpretation: “Katie obviously believes Bob was the leakee to Gail Shister, who wrote/predicted in the Philly Inquirer this spring that Couric would be out of ‘Evening News’ after the elections. Love Hagan’s ‘affects naivete’ line. Says it all.”
