Katie Couric Loses 20-30 Pounds on Miracle Photoshop Diet!

From TV Newser:
The left photo is the official first-pic-of-Katie released by CBS at this year's upfront. (TVNewser posted it in May.) The right photo is an edited version of the same photo, from the September issue of Watch magazine, which is owned by CBS.
CBS: Your #1 source for objective journalism.

UPDATE: TV Newser has an update here, and let's give Katie props for her funny response to the kerfuffle:
"Through a spokesman, Couric says that she prefers the original photo 'because there's more of me to love...'"

To hell with whatever the diet du jour is! I am buying photoshop, doctoring all photos of me. At which point I can just stay home whiling away the hours on Sparklepony and eating bonbons!!!

That will make James Van Der Beek happy. In the pilot to Dawson's Creek, he proclaims that he "walks his dog" every morning to Katie Couric.

And thanks to Tom Cruise, we all know that Joey is gonna be pregnant and barefoot as long as Xenu is out ruining the universe.

Hell, this is not news. I have been touching up photos of myself on Photoshop for ages.
Now that I have a PC instead of a Mac, however, I don't have Photoshop anymore, so there are no recent photos.

Wow, the fat just MELTED off of her.

In the specific case of her face, it looks like it's still hovering there, stalactite-like, in a big fat-droplet at the tip of her chin. The camera captured the moment right before it fell to earth, like a tallow candle melting in the heat . . .

(not so great a photoshop job)

No matter what "they" do, she still looks the the Joker in the Superman comix (as played by that dreadfully pretentious and appallingly ignorant overweight middle age balding fellow with a good dentist whose name I never remember).

The Free World's falsification of fauxtographs is getting so ingenious that even evil empire engineers of the soul (remember them?) would be jealous...

Making Ms. All-American smile (all-American despite her furren sounding name) look like a rake is an another proof that America has won the struggle over violent visual extremism, and thus the fight for hearts and minds worldwide.

May God continue to bless America.
