Katie Couric made remarks that could tarnish her image as an iconic, non-partisan newswoman, according to Fox News.
“Katie is ‘retired’ from any ‘objective’ news duties,” Tim Graham said. “She has been a partisan for a long time.”
“It is so shocking. … Not only are they not conceding, Bill, but their thoughts — that there might have been some collusion among members of Congress, some are refusing to go through magnetometers … to check for weapons, they’re not wearing masks during this siege,” Couric began.
“I mean, it’s really bizarre, isn’t it, when you think about how AWOL so many of these members of Congress have gotten. But I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie. And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump.”
“Katie Couric making such offensive comments comes as no surprise, she is part of a media complex that deliberately stifled the flow of information negative to Biden in order to interfere in the election,” Jacobson said.
Joe Concha made a similar observation of a growing trend among members of the media who have called for “deprogramming and silencing 75 million Americans.”
“This sort of rhetoric from Couric — which comes across as so condescending and elitist — underscores the divide between our media, which primarily resides in New York and Washington, and the rest of the country, which is moderate to center-right per multiple polls. And it’s why the industry is so mistrusted and frowned upon,” Concha said.
Couric, who is slated to guest-host “Jeopardy!” following the passing of Alex Trebek, was openly cheering on Trump’s impeachment during her “Real Time” appearance.
“If you commit a crime and then you move, does that means we’re not going to charge you with a crime because you’re moving out of the neighborhood? I mean, it’s ludicrous,” Couric told Maher, who expressed opposition to Trump’s second impeachment. “I think there have to be guardrails on presidential power. He incited violence. … He was really, really inciting violence.”
“It is insane and you cannot let that stand,” she added.
