Katie Couric: “I Don’t Think Anybody Gives a Rats Ass Whether I Am About to Eat a Tuna Sandwich”

I don’t even care. Some of it is so inane and narcissistic and bizarre I don’t quite get it. I don’t know why anyone would want to read it, much less why I would want to write it.” Of course, Couric Tweeted her stop at “American Idol” the night before.

As he told TVNewser recently, Stephanopoulos told the students he’s gotten questions for his “This Week” guests from some of his 366,000+ Twitter followers, adding, “it is a way for you to have a better sense of what is going on out there in the country.”
