Signing off the news desk tonight must have been bittersweet. Critics were on you since day one. Yeah, I was one of them. No one wants to think they’re better suited to cover fluff, but maybe you have to embrace what you’re good at, even if it’s not what you want to be good at.
Sure, maybe you were too chipper on the Today Show, but if it’s any consolation that show tanked after you left.
And while the news desk didn’t work out, take heart: people prefer celebrity gossip over recession coverage anyway. But you’re not going home empty-handed. Your interview with Sarah Palin was the greatest gift you’ve given this country.
True, you never had the gravitas of Walter Cronkite, but take solace in the fact that you have, hands down, way better eyebrows.
