Katie Couric will make her debut on ABC News tonight, Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2011 with a celebrity interview on "Nightline,"reports our friend Marisa Guthrie for The Hollywood Reporter.
The interview is with actress Sarah Jessica Parker.
Says the article, "the interview veers into a discussion about the snarky tone of today’s media, something that Couric has also been on the receiving end of. ‘I think the things that are more painful to me are not the intrusion of paparazzi, it’s the lack of civility that I find more intimidating and far more painful an experience,’ Parker says. ‘It’s the lack of critical thinking. It’s the endless snarky, mean way we talk about each other, we approach each other. The anonymity of being cruel, the delight in tearing people down. The tabloid era that we find ourselves in is a cultural boneyard, and that is painful to me.’ "
The article also notes, "The interview is something of a soft-launch for Couric…"
The story adds, "The interview is hooked to Parker’s new movie, the ‘Working Girl’-esque comedy ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’…"
