No reason apparently. Couric's ratings are still in the basement, she hasn't landed any big interviews and she was shut out of the fall debate schedule. But according to the Times, Couric "has been in the middle of things for the last few weeks." That's the news hook.

Makes us wish the press would stop treating anchors like celebrities and report on actual media news instead.
