In a sitdown with New York Magazine, Katie Couric admits to having days "when I'm like, 'Oh my god, what did I do?'" with regards to the cold reception given her CBS Evening News cast. That said, she takes issue with those who find a certain glee in her woes. "I've gone through a bit of a feeding frenzy and there's blood in the water. This person who's been successful isn't so great, and finally she's being put in her place.... That kind of mentality [is] fairly primal."

Other choice sound bites from the in-depth profile:

" "[That] I'm not a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown... it's probably disappointing to some people, because in the arc of the story, that's what they want to see."

" "I underestimated the feeling that some might have that I was a morning-show personality and not a credible news person. Which I, quite frankly, think is patently unfair."

" On the topic of peers who have slammed her "anonymously" in the press (no less than Bob Schieffer and Lesley Stahl are said to have sourced a Philadelphia Inquirer story deeming the new News "a disaster"): "People getting their jollies from seeing it in print is so creepy and weird to me. If you're so unhappy, get another job!"

" "If it turns out it wasn't a perfect fit, I'll do something else that's really exciting and fulfilling for me."
