In a juicy new tell-all guide, Couric comes across as brash, striving, and self-absorbed, and Sawyer is really a Machiavellian, often-inscrutable workaholic.

For Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer and Christiane Amanpour, the minute of facts are planning to arriveвЂ”or at the least a book-length facsimile thereof.
News professionals and community publicists were distracting by themselves out of this summer timeвЂ™s seriously depressing or perhaps world that is alarming by moving around and poring over bound galleys regarding the News Sorority, veteran journalist Sheila WellerвЂ™s gossipy chronicle for the increase (and periodic stumbles) of three of tv newsвЂ™ best-known ladies.
In WellerвЂ™s narrativeвЂ”which, as the subtitle indicates, aspires to report вЂњthe (Ongoing, Imperfect, Complicated) Triumph of Women in TV InformationвЂќвЂ”Couric comes down as brash, striving, self-absorbed, and periodically insensitive into the realities faced by her less well-compensated colleagues, yet steeled by individual tragedy (the cancer-related deaths of her spouse and her sibling) and effective at big-hearted generosity.
Sawyer is just a Machiavellian, often-inscrutable workaholic who makes use of her seductive charm and visual appearance to expert benefit and torments news producers together with her relentless perfectionism and insecurityвЂ”an obvious result of a fraught relationship along with her judgmental, solid mom (whom once delivered the adult Sawyer into a self-flagellating death spiral, Weller writes, whenever she criticized exactly how her television star child had made her bed).
