Katie Couric's Sputum Production
She didn't like the word "sputum," so she attacked her editor.
Katie Couric allegedly slapped a "CBS Evening News" editor "over and over and over again" during a tense newsroom confrontation, according to a source quoted by New York magazine, which goes on sale Monday.
"I sort of slapped him around," Couric admitted to the magazine. "I got mad at him and said, 'You can't do this to me. You have to tell me when you're going to use a word like that.' I was aggravated, there's no question about that."
