In new memoir, Going There, Couric writes that she edited out a part where Ginsburg said that those who kneel during the national anthem are showing 'contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.'...

The narcissism to deny people the grace of their own perspective evidently has no bounds. . .

But Couric writes in her memoir that she thought the justice, who was 83 at the time, was 'elderly and probably didn't fully understand the question.'

She said: 'Which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from...as they became older they realize that this was youthful folly. And that's why education is important.'

Couric claims that she 'lost a lot of sleep over this one' and still wrestles with the decision she made.

According to Couric, she 'wanted to protect' Ginsburg and felt that the issue of racial justice was a 'blind spot' for her.

Katie Couric is an arrogant leftist who thinks she should be able to manipulate interviews, even to the point of twisting them to make them seem to be 180 degrees from what they actually were, to suit her political purposes. It's not as if this is her first time pulling this sort of thing, after all.


Remember her documentary where she got busted for doing that with an interview of the Virginia Citizens Defense League on guns?

Couric doing interviews felt like being questioned by the KGB.

The sooner people understand that ALL mainstream "journalists" (aka entertainers) do this (for both sides), the sooner they'll understand their job is to keep people divided.

No. I'm saying that your post, particularly the "ALL mainstream "journalists" (aka entertainers) do this (for both sides)" portion, is blatantly false, which is not the same thing.

Point I was making is that nearly all journalists in the MSM are activists, and not journalists. The ones on camera are entertainers, pure and simple (Lemon, Tucker, etc. etc.).

Much like facebook algorithms, they are there to feed their viewers two extremes: 1. Daily affirmation of what they already believe and 2. Something they disagree with and gets them angered.

Keeps the viewers divided.

Maybe you're trying to make the point that one side is more authentic and doesnt use the same tactics as the other??

I'm saying that not all mainstream reporters/"reporters" go around doing unethical edits.
