Video: Katie Couric debuts on the CBS Evening News

I did promise Mary K, who’s gone and written a thoughtful post about it.

Introduced by Uncle Walter, her first story a report about how we’re “back to the drawing board” in the war on terror, her first guest in the new “freeSpeech” segment lefty D-lister Morgan Spurlock. Plus a hard-hitting segment on baby pictures of Tom Cruise’s kid.

Yep, sounds about right.

She did include Ron Burgundy in her compilation of famous anchor sign-offs, though. As well as Rather’s infamous “courage” clip, which might or might not have been a swipe.

Eh, whatever. Limbaugh’s cameo is on Thursday.

Here are a few minutes of highlights. Heavily edited, needless to say.
