Katie Couric/CBS Negotiation -- DEAD!

5/4/2011 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katie Couric's negotiations with CBS to stay at the network to do a syndicated talk show are officially dead -- not gonna happen ... this according to plugged-in sources at CBS.

Our sources say the breakdown occurred because CBS was unwilling to give Katie substantial involvement in the network's news operation.  We're told CBS honchos were willing to give Katie pieces for "60 Minutes," but nothing more -- and Katie wasn't having it.

As a result, Katie will make a clean break from CBS and will not be doing a syndicated show for the network.

We're told ABC is now the likely future home for K.C.

Serves her right. She askes Palin those moronic questions that made them both look stupid. Now she's the joke of the news room.
Maybe her and Sarah Palin can team up and do a reality show together. Call it Dumb and Dumber!

@Mark,

No, Palin is stupid all on her own. All Katie did was give her a chance to show that to the world.

Most annoying "TV non-personality"

Always change the channel immediately when I hear her voice.

She should not be given any new failure show.

No..... They're both stupid! Couric made an ass of herself by asking someone to basically "name a newspaper" as though she was teasing someone in 5th grade.

Palin is an idiot for not being able to think on her feet and defend herself by explaining that nobody reads newspapers anymore when they can get up to the minute news online.
Both of them should be embarrassed.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Sarah “The Bimbo” Palin being a “moron” had nothing to do with Katie. Ms. Wasilla never had the brains to be Vice President. She got picked by McCain during one of McCain’s panic attacks when McCain made a horrible decision.

Katie Couric should have never left the Today Show. A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush, huh Katie.

She is no more than window dressing. There are so many other "Pretty Faces" and that includes most men on network news.

The woman was lucky to get as far as she did, as I recall she was thisclose to being booted off of GMA the head honcho HATED her and wanted her gone.

So, she should thank her lucky stars that she had the run she did and move on. I don't care to watch anything she will be doing in the future, she's not my cup of tea.

Katie Couric, biased political tool and pedophile since her boyfriend is like 20 years younger. She's a hack.

@Mark & Ken: The Palin and Couric conversation sounds a lot more interesting than the one you two are having.
