Did Anyone Catch Katie Couric's Sign off on Friday? (Vanity)
CBS Evening News ^ | 11/10/2008 | None

Posted on 11/09/2008 5:27:04 PM PST by PeteePie

Okay you'll have to excuse the lateness in following up on what I heard. I (temporarily) live and work in a different time zone than most of you (US CST + 9) and I wasn't able to log on yesterday. Anyway we're listening to AFN radio after the night shift Friday morning, which equated to approximately 5:24pm EST. On the second of the two stations available, we were treated to an audio broadcast the CBS Evening News w/ Kat-ie Couric. After the final human interest segment she signs off to the contributing reporter with, "Enjoy your first post-election weekend, I know I will!"...

AHHH! Don't ask why but I have to admit I was stunned at the blatant bias I had just heard. They don't even TRY to hide it!! Any lingering smidgen of a doubt regarding objectivity, political neutrality, or even the slightest journalistic integrity should be completely wiped out now. (I haven't entertained ANY such doubts since 1982).

Just in case anyone missed seeing this interview with Sarah,watch the interview at this link. It is not cut into little pieces like some that are out. Sarah lets the media have it, and does so with such class! :)

You should be ashamed by watching her. You increased her ratings by at least 10%.

Is that Katie Couric? Somehow I’d imagined a brunette and definitely a thinner face.

Same here...especially not after the hatchet job she did on Dr. James Dobson and the Matthew Shepard murder case.

I was flipping by and I saw it. It’s typical left wing Katie. It was preceeded by a story about a marching band where all the people in the marching band are blind. It was a nice story.

I don't understand the whole media bias thing. It has to be about power.

That being said, there needs to be a strong movement against these people. I think it was Chris Matthews that said “we need to have a successful presidency”.

There is something seriously wrong with this picture.

Not only don't they try to hide it, they advertise it. ....like Chrissy Matthews from the other day: "It's my JOB to make the Obama Presidency successful."

The MSM is the official propaganda arm of the Democrat party, and when you combine that with the Dems controlling the executive branch and *almost* having a supermajority in congress and we've got ourselves a major problem.

No way.

I must be more tired than I think. When I read this, my first take was that it was about being glad the whole election cycle was over...including the extra work.

Not defending, I am a absolute believer in the gross media bias on both sides.

With Obama as President, there will be a Liberal majority on the Supreme Court too. That will mean the end of Conservatism. Only Liberalism will be legal.

I don’t waste my time with anything Katie Couric says. Her reputation is nothing but hype. She knows nothing, and has no discernible talent. She would be unfit to run the PTA, let alone be Governor of Alaska.

Point taken however, I choose to believe that at best it was veiled jubilation and at worst what I already stated. In any event she should have known instinctively that her comment could be taken as an offense. I mean shouldn’t the prognosticators of PC be more sensitive than that? (sarc)

The first two SCOTUS justices likely to retire are ultra-libs Stevens and Ginsburg, and they’ll be replaced by clones. So the balance would remain the same. ...for now. We just have to hope and pray for the health of the Court conservatives during Hussein’s term.

The way they say it, it sort of sounds like it’s their job to ensure that the Bush administration fails.

"katie couric can go piss up a rope for all I care.

That would be a nice preface to finishing off Couric with the same rope.

I've never watched CBS for years before I was even the least bit politically aware, just never liked Dan Rather, maybe it was their programming; I don't know. Never watched Katie; she came late to the scene and was too young and unseasoned.

I used to have a lot of respect for Barbara Walters, but she lost it.

Ginsburg is an ultra-liberal? ;-)

How the h&ll did she of ALL people wind up breezing through her SC appointment unscathed with her ACLU "creds"?? Hopefully our side stays healthy during Hussein's Reich.

Btw - I'm sure you're enjoying Giants on their game and demolishing the Eagles defense. It's a beautiful thing.

GOP Senators turn to mush when Dem-nominated judges appear before them, as always. What’d ACLU Ginsburg get, about 97 votes out of 100?

(Great TD catch by Boss, btw. He’s a million times better than that overrated troublemaker Shockey).
