CBS Evening News with Katie Couric E-Mail Alert


Hi everyone,


The November jobs report is out, and it’s not good. Employers cut 533,000 jobs last month, bringing the unemployment rate to 6.7 percent, the highest rate in 34 years. The number of jobs lost in this economy has now declined for 11 straight months. Anthony Mason will crunch the numbers, while Cynthia Bowers reports on the fallout of these hard times: more men and women are opting to re-enlist in the military when their tours are finished, rather than enter the tough U.S. job market.


Meanwhile, the Big Three CEOs are back on Capitol Hill, but it’s still not clear if they’ll receive any of the $34 billion bailout that they’re asking for from Congress. Sharyl Attkisson is covering the hearings.


Next: OJ Simpson is going to prison. More than a decade ago, he was acquitted of murder in what was perhaps the most-watched trial of the 20th century. But today, the former football great was sentenced to as much as 33 years for armed robbery. John Blackstone has the story.


Doctors know best when it comes to disease, but patients know what it’s like to actually live with an illness. Tonight, Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports on new websites that allow patients to join forces online to discuss options and to learn about new treatments. It is part of our series, "Second Opinion: Medicine Online."


In Iraq, terrorist groups are increasingly using women as suicide bombers, because they’re rarely checked for weapons. In an exclusive report, Elizabeth Palmer interviews a 15-year-old who says she was almost tricked into becoming a human bomb. It’s a harrowing story told for the first time.


Finally, at one small company in the Midwest, employees expected to lose their jobs. Instead, they got a great big surprise. Steve Hartman reports, in tonight’s Assignment America.


Have a great weekend!


Katie Couric
