In their dialog, Ginsburg informed Couric quite forcefully that the skilled athletes who had taken the lead of soccer quarterback Colin Kaepernick and knelt through the taking part in of the anthem to make a social assertion had been within the improper.

She added that kneeling was “dumb and disrespectful.” The latter remark made it into Couric’s write-up of their sitdown, however not the arguably extra problematic remarks made by the liberal justice. A “conflicted” Couric stated she referred to as a number of of her fellow journalists to get their opinion on whether or not she ought to print or conceal the controversial feedback, finally deciding on the latter.
“This is the least surprising thing I’ve seen since watching the sunrise in the East this morning,” Concha stated Thursday on “Outnumbered.”
It was the second time in 2016 Couric was discovered to have edited an interview to her liking. In “Under the Gun,” a documentary about gun rights, Couric requested members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”
In the clip initially supplied, the gun house owners had been silent for a stretch of 9 seconds. In actuality, nonetheless, they answered her query instantly.
“The same Katie Couric who selectively edited that gun rights documentary five years ago to make gun owners look stupid and she was eviscerated for it in some circles outside of conservative media,” he added. But, he famous, she by no means “received any reprimand.”
“When there’s no accountability, guess what happens? he asked. “The Katie Courics of the world will do it once more.”
Her latest offense, Concha said, puts her squarely in “Dan Rather territory,” meaning she’s about to join the list of disgraced ex-anchors and journalists who single-handedly destroyed their careers and reputations.
Rather, the former CBS evening news anchor, infamously fell from grace and was fired by the network for unapologetically pushing a false smear campaign against President George W. Bush’s wartime service.
Co-host Kayleigh McEnany said Ginsburg notoriously had an independent streak and did not need protection from the likes of Katie Couric. Co-host Emily Compagno agreed, lamenting that the late justice cannot correct the record on the matter.
“Too little, too late and I feel it is revolting,” stated Compagno.
