Look Honey, They Shrunk The Anchor

Considering it appeared in a promotional magazine for the network, the fact someone at CBS apparently decided to touch up a photo of incoming anchor Katie Couric to make her look a little smaller isn't the biggest scandal in journalism. Forgive us for not obsessing over it. Still, it's not something that looks particularly good for a news organization. CBS News says it was done without the knowledge of Couric or the network. CBS News President Sean McManus says he was "disappointed," and the New York Daily News has the story.

Update: There have been some complaints that the TVNewser blog was not credited in this post for originally raising the photo issue. Indeed, the issue was first featured there. The reason for linking to another story in this post was that the Daily News was the first place I saw reaction from CBS News, which took the story further.
