Katie Couric show headed for the crapper

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/katie-c...

Katie insiders say the problem is that Couric has refused to shape shows with softer features to appeal to daytime's key 25-to-54-year-old female demo, insisting instead on the kind of harder-edged interviews she enjoyed on Today and her stint as anchor of CBS Evening News.

"She has a complete and utter disdain for the audience she needs to appeal to," says one former employee. "In her mind, the Today show was [the model]-- professional women getting ready for work. Anyone home after 9 o'clock are people she has no interest in appealing to. But she also loved the $20 million paycheck." A source close to Couric dismisses that characterization and says, "It is because of Katie's great respect for her audience that she introduces fresh perspectives and substantive material into the show."

Definition of 'Subsidy'
A benefit given by the government to groups or individuals usually in the form of a cash payment or tax reduction. The subsidy is usually given to remove some type of burden and is often considered to be in the interest of the public.
You & dumbwaiter are dumber than sh*t.
You want to how GD dumb you two are?
You run around b*tching about subsidies to help people buy health insurance. Does the government give these people cash?
They give the insurance company "cash" in their name.

Your ONE definition does not outweigh my six.

You stated it as your goal.
So let me get this straight. According to you, I'm a "no-life moron", but you are publicly admitting your mission on TOPIX (of all places) is to expose lies, ignorance, greed and hypocrisy (on TOPIX). Um, most intelligent people would call that a no-life mission. And to top that off, you choose as your tactic of this no-life mission to create a few dozen unique email addresses so you can then create a few dozen unique (well, as unique and you can get while trying to mimic "Eman") Topix accounts. Somehow, that seem sane to you? Incredible. Is someone getting a government grant to study you? They should,
Yes.

Another thing....
If you want to give a post like this credibility, you have to tell everyone what the profit margin Exxon works with is. Then, so everyone will have a point of reference, compare that profit margin with other companies in other industries, like Microsoft, for example.
As your post is now, it doesn't say a goddam thing. It's just ignorant ranting to an ignorant readership.
Problem is with Microsoft it is a choice any consumer can make to buy or not to buy. On the other side is big oil that 99% of all Americans must use. Yours is the ONLY consumer good that must be used by everyone but has no Federal regulation of its pricing. Any utility in America is under pricing regulations. The lack of regulation is the reason America pays for Exxon to make $49 Billion in profit while they are shipping America's oil and LNG to China. The cost of oil companies making the most profit of any company ever in world history has been paid for with the hard earned money of the lower and middle class worker. You know, all the people that you so fondly look down upon.

CRANSTON, R.I.-
Terence McAuliffe, the former chairman of the national Democratic Party and current Virginia gubernatorial candidate, was one of hundreds of people who invested in variable annuities that used terminally ill patients as the annuitants.
McAuliffe and others became owners of the investment instruments through Cranston estate planner Joseph Caramadre. Caramadre pleaded guilty to stealing the identities of terminally ill patients and using that information to falsely apply for annuities and bonds with death puts.
Prosecutors said Caramadre cost insurance companies between $37 million and $48 million from the scheme.
Caramadre, with the help of a partner, would use personal information from terminally ill patients on investment applications that contained death benefits. The actual owners of the annuity would be Caramadre or hundreds of investors. In exchange for the personal information, Caramadre often times would help the families of the terminally ill to pay for funeral expenses.
Besides McAuliffe, Robert Flanders, a former justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court, is on the investment list. Gaythorne "Poochie" Angell, a long-time bookie and mob associate, was also an investor, along with Monsignor Raymond Bastia, who handles financial planning for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence.
There is no evidence that the investors knew that Caramadre was stealing the identities of the terminally ill patients.
Caramadre's use of unrelated owners of the annuities was legal.
Caramadre and his partner have pleaded guilty to the investment scheme. Prosecutors said Caramadre made millions.
Caramadre is being held at the Wyatt Detention Center and has yet to be sentenced.
If it's legal, why was he arrested?

"But from the perspective of a very small employer, it may become easier to compete for talent against larger enterprises (which would be able to offer much better insurance options to employees at better prices anyway). These subsidies often come in the form of tax credits, which any profit-making business can utilize immediately. If the business does not operate at a profit, the credit can be carried forward to future years—not helpful for today’s cash flow, but valuable in the future."

Note the the sentence: "These subsidies often come in the form of tax credits"

Now, don't you really feel stupid. Your heroes at Fox calling you a f*cking moron. Yep, that's gotta hurt.
