Katie Couric Trashes Michael Moore! Would Rather Arrange Socks than go out with him!
The Today Show

Posted on 09/01/2004 6:06:30 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

In perhaps the most stunning morning news show interview I've ever seen, Katie Couric just got through thoroughly trashing Michael Moore.

She began by criticizing the scenes in Fahrenheit 911 depicting a pre-war Iraq of children peacefully playing and weddings taking place. "Wasn't that misleading?" Moore claimed he only used the footage to show the kinds of people killed by US bombing, not to suggest Saddam's Iraq was a "utopia."

Next, Katie said that "many people say the Dems don't want you to be the face of the party."

"Who said that?" demanded Moore. "Well, Tim Russert for one," answered Katie.

She added: "let's face it, many people think you're a jerk."

An obviously hurt Moore responded: "but you don't think I'm a jerk, do you Katie?"

Katie refused to come to his aid: "well, my views aren't important, it's the views of the Dem party."

"But come on, Katie, you know me."

"I really don't know you very well."

"But, come one, from talking after the shows, etc. You don't think I'm a jerk, do you?"

"I really don't know you well enough to say that."

Finally, in a scene so amazing I could hardly believe my eyes and ears, Moore virtually asked Katie out on a date, and was shot down with a classic co-ed line.

Katie asked Moore if he'd be going back to the convention and Moore said he would, probably tonight and tomorrow. Then Moore added: "will you come with me, Katie?"

A shocked Katie replied: "No," then, incredibly, added: "I HAVE TO RE-ARRANGE MY SOCK DRAWER."

Yes, she actually said it. Katie made it clear that she loathes Moore and fears that as the prominent face of the party, he is dragging down her boy Kerry.

An absolutely stunning TV moment. Catch a replay if you can.

She doesn't loathe Moore. She loathes that he so accurately expresses her views while being such an obnoxious democrat spokesman.

As soon as useful idiot outlives his usefulness, he is just an idiot.

When Moore gave McCain--the media's beloved RINO--the "L" sign, he showed the public the left's true face and, let's face it, it AINT pretty.

Of course they resent him now.

Did this actually HAPPEN, or is this another Snopes thread?

I can NOT imagine al-Qatie doing this, on live international feed, to a fellow traveler and Hollywood hero like Fat Ba$tard - er, Moore.

It is so interesting how F911 is backfiring on Dems in a big way. Moore and Dems thought F911 was going to influence the independents who go to the poll and all it has done is made Republicans, veterans and the military want to go and support Bush.

Go figure. I am sure the Dems told Moore he is not helping their cause and he needs to leave the Convention.

Couric is at heart a valueless opportunist. She sees the Dem campaign going down by the bow and is scrambling for one of the seats in a lifeboat. She needs to keep her job options open.

I truly could not believe what I was seeing. When Katie absolutely refused to say Moore was not a jerk, despite repeated attempts by Moore to get her to vouch for him, I was amazed. And when she came up with the "arrange my sock drawer" line to blow off his request for a date, I was dumbfounded.

"But, come one, from talking after the shows, etc. You don't think I'm a jerk, do you?"

That comment by Moore means to me that she has told him privately that she loves his work!!

Sounds like Little Katie Leftist just realized that Kerry "may" not win the election. Such proper handling of Moore is not at all typical of the leftist media. She is up to something...(chuckle).

She is p*ssed because even with all the water-carrying she and her fellow media travelers have done for Kerry and the demonrats, she is watching this election slip slide away. So, who does she blame? MICHAEL MORON! HA!

Interesting, no one wants to be Moore's friend now.

I read yesterday that Clintonistas were on an MSNBC show Monday night along with Ron Silver. The topic turned to Michael Moore. The lefties argued that Moore is not the face of the democratic party and it was unfair to say so. Silver blasted back that every major Democrat attended his gala movie premier, the Black Causus had him as a speaker during their convention, and he was sitting in the presidential box hand in hand with Jimmy Carter.

Thrre's trouble in paradise.

USA today pulled him from the convention - they must have figured out he is hurting Kerry. And if he causes Kerry to lose, the Dems will turn on him like they did Nader.

Even if they cremated Moore and squoze his asses into a diamond, instead of it being yellow, it'd be brown from what he's made of and ought to be thrown in the Marianas Trench.

"let's face it, many people think you're a jerk."

In all my years of Today watching, I've never seen Katie be this blatantly rude to any guest. She obviously loathes the guy. A definitely flying pig alert.

Nice!!!

Okay, here's an anecdote from yesterday:

Local radio talent in Chicago Steve Dahl and Buzz Killman, both unabashedly Democratic, have begun making references like, "Kerry lost this election when... Kerry lost me when..." etc. They singled out Kerry's infamous "I voted for the $87 billion before I voted against it line," and the
"I'm John Kerry and I'm reporting for duty" stunt as nauseating moments where they decided Kerry couldn't win...

We're almost there. The Democrats have the razor to the vein.
