CBS Evening News with Katie Couric E-Mail Alert


Hi everyone,


As the Big Three automakers struggle for survival, some important moves took place behind the scenes today. Congressional leaders reviewed the survival plans submitted by GM, Ford and Chrysler – and the workers who actually make the cars held their own meeting, offering to try help out their companies.  Dean Reynolds reports on what the United Autoworkers are proposing – and how Congress is reacting to the automakers’ rescue plans.


Also, Mark Strassmann has the tale of two auto plants – and why they’re so different. One is a Hyundai plant in Alabama, the other, a GM plant in Michigan.  And later in our broadcast, Sharyl Attkisson “Follows the Money” from the big automakers … to the halls of Congress.


College costs have skyrocketed in recent years, and a new report says every state but California gets an “F” in making college affordable. (And California only received a “C.”) Kelly Wallace examines whether the cost of college is getting out of reach for Americans.


It's increasingly common for patients to turn to the Internet – not an actual doctor – for a second opinion. How can you avoid bogus – even harmful – health info online? Dr. Jon LaPook has the first in his new series, Second Opinion: Medicine Online.


Do you think your family really knows how to pick out and decorate a beautiful Christmas tree? Well, Sandra Hughes introduces us to a family that takes it to the next level. You might even call them the First Family of Christmas trees.


See you tonight,


Katie Couric
