And we wonder why women feel shitty about themselves...

This sucks. Someone took poor, lovely, normal sized Katie Couric and made her into a stick figure. I relate well to Katie - she's about my height, has had short brown hair (I'll admit I'm not big fan of the blonde), and is often described as "cute". Plus she's wicked smart and articulate.

Why the fuck would they airbrush her into anorexic oblivion?

There is no earthly reason to change her (unless perhaps she'd had an unfortunate run-in with dioxin right beforehand. (Or, like I did the day of Dance School pictures, sucked a cup onto her chin while watching Saved By the Bell and gave herself a big purple chin hickey.))

Why do this? We all see her on TV every day and that even adds 10 pounds so why can't we see her in a freaking picture as herself, the way she is?

I don't get it. I really don't.
