Clearly, there’s something to the notion that one’s position as a trusted news provider is forever in flux. That’s why stories like Ann Curry‘s unceremonious removal from Today and Thursday’s announcement from CBS regarding Norah O’Donnell replacing former CBS This Morning anchor Erica Hill are so quick to catch our eye. We can see the backstage conversations, filled with haughty Socrates references and allusions to historical moments in journalism, spilling forth from one fast-talking journalist as her producer tries to calm her down by responding with sage words of wisdom.
