Romensko changes disgusting headline about Couric

This morning, the Romenesko blog, famous among journalists for its coverage of da biz, featured a link to Tom Shales' Washington Post piece about Katie Couric:

Another tongue-bath for Couric
This time from Shales.


When your blogstress returned from her lunchtime stroll, the hed was a bit more demure:

More love for Couric
This time from Shales.


Apparently, when a male writer expresses appreciation for the work of a woman in a man's job, it's almost like he's licking her -- until some editor comes to his senses.

Alas, your Webwench did not perform a screen-save of the original hed. You'll just have to take her word for it.

UPDATE: The "tongue bath" phrase comes from a blog post by Bill Wyman that appeared earlier this week on Hitsville, a post played big by Romenesko.
