Katie Couric and her fake weight loss.

In case you missed this little story today, here’s what happened…

Katie Couric, the soon to be CBS Evening News anchor, had a picture in a magazine where she appeared to have lost a little weight. Reporters of this really important story estimate it to be a 20 pound weight loss. This is all pretty normal so far, right?

Well, it will start to get a little strange when I mention that this very same picture of Katie Couric was released a month ago, and in this version, there was no weight loss. Wait, hold on a second here.

There’s two versions of the exact same picture of Katie Couric. One picture shows her looking like she actually does in the really real world. The other shows her looking 20 pounds thinner.

Wow, it’s a weight loss miracle! Well, either that or…

But thanks to Photoshop, the popular editing software, the same photo, printed in a CBS magazine, shows her looking much, much thinner – and her suit has become a few shades darker.

“The picture was retouched without the knowledge of Ms. Couric or CBS News management,” a CBS spokesman said.

How wonderful. This of course warrants one tiny little question:

If something like this can happen for the sole purpose of getting you to watch Katie Couric on the CBS Evening News… how often do you think it happens for the sole purpose of getting you to buy a weight loss product?

    Damn right you are!
    After I started frequenting your sites I started to really open my eyes to all this media madness and makes me feel kind of silly just thinking that once I considered going on one of those “lose your arm in a day diets” :(

    Keep posting!

    Glad I could be of service. Don’t feel too silly though, at one point I actually used to own an “Ab Rocker.” Now THAT’S silly.
