Maybe Dan Partied At The Jets' Locker Room

Funny, I don't recall gushing reports about Dan Rather's or Walter Cronkite's birthday parties; oh yes, they were such a men of the people. No news blackout with Katie, though, thanks to the NYPost:
The Tiffany Network's evening news anchor, veteran broadcaster Katie Couric, donned an Audrey Hepburn-inspired black cocktail dress to her "Breakfast at Tiffany's"- themed 50th-birthday party at the iconic Fifth Avenue store last night.

The 200-plus guests invited to the celebration include "Today" co-anchor Matt Lauer, singer Tony Bennett, "The View" hostess Barbara Walters and onetime "CBS Evening News" co- anchor Connie Chung.

Lauer, Bennett, Walters, Chung ... but the liberal media doesn't hang out together. Heck, we're not even allowed to accuse them of being liberal.

After Tiffany's closed to the public at 6 p.m., the party planners waltzed in to ready the main room for champagne and cocktails, followed by a sit down dinner and dancing on the private fifth floor.

Couric was treated to a German chocolate cake and cupcakes and guests received party-favors that one source said were "little Tiffany's gifts along the Tiffany's theme." ...

Guests received invitations that featured a tasteful sketch of Couric as Hepburn ....

This is nothing new; great journalists have always enjoyed fame and, to some extent, fortune. No matter how much they try to just be one of us, it is impossible for the glitz, fame and wealth not to get to their heads.

And yes, of course it's easier to be liberal when you've got money to burn. But shooing the common folk out of Tiffany's for God's sake so you can be really elite -- that's the definition of a holier than thou, smarter than thou, the better to determine how you should spend your money liberalism.
