Katie Couric muzzles leftist icon RBG and gets outed by an LTC for pushing fake news

| October 14, 2021

In today’s world of news it’s becoming increasingly hard to decipher what’s true or not. Even when a leftist “journalist” interviews and reports on a leftist icon like the Notorious RBG herself. For those who don’t deify Supreme Court justices, that’s Ruth Bader Ginsburg I’m referring to. The so-called journalist is Katie Couric (pictured).

Couric sat down for an interview with RBG in 2016, long before she passed away last year. During the interview, the elder jurist spoke some common sense truth to Couric on the topic of the National Anthem protesters. Apparently Couric couldn’t take it, let her personal political opinions override her journalistic integrity, and justifies it by saying the 83-year-old justice was “elderly and probably didn’t fully understand the question.”

Whatever your views on Ginsberg’s legal or political opinions, she was mentally sharp. Especially so in 2016.

The Post Millenial outs Couric (who writes about this in her new memoir) and quotes what Justice Ginsberg said about the flag protesters;

Ginsburg supposedly said those who kneel show ‘contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.’ The story in question, published by Yahoo! News in 2016, saw Couric quote, Ginsburg, stating that refusing to stand for the anthem was ‘dumb and disrespectful’ but omitted more problematic remarks. The former host writes she thought the justice, who was 83 at the time, was ‘elderly and probably didn’t fully understand the question.’

The left’s paragon of jurisprudence, who in 2016 nearing the apex of her popularity as the poster child of the Resistance movement, was unable to understand a simple question. Even better, the Justice elaborated and clearly understood the question and gave a very reasoned answer. Naturally, since it didn’t align with her worldview, Couric omitted the more problematic parts.

When news of this broke, a retired US Army lieutenant colonel, Samantha Nerove, took to Twitter to voice an experience she had with Couric’s production team. Here’s Colonel Nerove’s words;

Here is my shocked face….

Narratives, sometimes, live in darkness…?

Talk about too rich to eat in one sitting. F*** her. I thought the Leftoid Mafia excommunicated Frau Katie’s over her complicity in the Matt intern abuse thingy?

Anywho, I love me some inward-facing firing squad action!

KoB

Gotta wonder which puppeteer is pulling this skrunts strings. If IDC SARC hadda went ahead and hit that thing, Katie mighta mellowed out and seen the light by now.

BZ to LTC Nerove! Can’t tell you when the last time it was that I watched a “network” news broadcast…or any other “talking heads” show.

So, she snitches on herself in her memoir. What’s her angle? Did the pendulum swing so far left she’s coming back around to the right, where ethics n stuff matter? Or is this just a “bombshell” to sell her book?

UpNorth

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and state that this is the second possibility you raised, nobunny. Trying to give a bump to the book sales.

nobunny

That’s a mighty shaky limb, Northy. But I just pick the most cynical money-grubbin course of action. Hasn’t failed me yet. Aim low.

It’s a paper tape from a 1950s cap gun toy for little kids, nobunny.

She’s never been anything but a gloryhound, and she’s about as boring as someone of her ilk can get. I have shoes that have more to say than she doe.

nobunny

Very true.

I’m not sure who I dislike more: politicians or the media. Maybe they’re just different heads on the same monster.

Katie has always been a power player, intellectually gifted and PERKY!

I was gonna say “perky” also. She hated being called “perky.”

But she was …. waaaaaay back then.

AW1Ed

So her interview, as reported in her memoir, was fake but accurate?

Now that sounds, familiar.

One thing Progda always does is pretend newsworthy occurrences that don’t fit the narrative just didn’t happen. Makes one think Katie’s director or editor was Winston Smith after he fell in love with Big Brother.

It was fake news that got Dan Blathers canned, now the DNC masters of today’s liberal media let them flaunt and get away with it!

I think it’s very clear that there are people in your profession that write fake news. – DJT

imagine being enough of a fascist dimwit to think RGB was an icon of the left or “the resistance.” i feel sorry for the dummies who read this site. TAH has devolved into trump shaft guzzling at its finest. buncha NatSoc wannabes. PATHETIC

AW1Ed

Normally, BDB, new comments with fake email addresses I shitcan out of hand. Like yours. This fascist dimwit approved your charming comment not out of the goodness of my heart, but to showcase gutless trolls.

Have a TAH day.

This is what is called “Projection” that someone we all know and *cough*, love does all the time.
It seems like good ole BDB here knows a thing or two about “shaft guzzling” and I’d also suspect, he’s more likely to be crouching behind the plate than found up on the mound.

FIFY, you’re welcome. Now go and have yourself a nice day.

I found it interesting that in her concealed comment she said these extremely wealthy kneeling professional players obtained all their success “from the government” instead of the country. Somehow I don’t think “government” alone made their successful sports careers. Seems like the fans and private companies are the ones who fund their incomes, not Unka Sam. But then all progs fervently believe that government is the source of every benefit we citizens enjoy. “You didn’t… Read more »

“Ask not what your government can do for you, ask what you can do for your government”.

Just doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.

Ask not what a dumbass can post on TAH, but, how fast can a troll get shit caned for bad behavior.

AW1Ed

Odd you should mention that, RGR 4-78. It’s not a question of speed. One has to earn it.
