This is awful.
“After assessing the overall impact of a series of incidents resulting from judgments she has made, we have concluded that it would be impossible for Alycia to continue to report the news as she, herself, has become the focus of so many news stories."
Why the hell not? What's one have to do with the other? Katie Couric is the focus of "many news stories." Oh, I see. Not ones where she is accused of punching a female cop in the face and calling her a "dyke."
Still. I didn't know squat about Lane until I read about her hijinks in New York. I'd be more likely to watch her do the news now than ever. But I guess that's why I'll never be in management.
This was clever though.
“We wish to make clear that we are not prejudging the outcome of the criminal case against Alycia that is pending in New York," said KWY-TV station manager Michael Colleran in a statement. “We understand that Alycia expects to be fully vindicated in that proceeding. We hope that is the case and we wish her the best in all her future endeavors."
No sense in giving her lawyers extra meat to chew on.
At least they'll be saving her $700,000 a year salary. For the time being.
