Caught on Video: Couric Mocks Palin on Day She’s Named Running Mate
Big Journalism ^ | Aug 4th 2010 at 1:11 am | Alexander Marlow

Posted on 08/04/2010 1:40:59 AM PDT by Bratch

Raw footage of CBS News anchor Katie Couric recording voice-overs for news segments about Gov. Sarah Palin on the day she was named as John McCain’s running mate:

[...]

What’s newsworthy here isn’t merely that Couric mocked the GOP’s historic Vice Presidential nominee–most of us have said things we’re not proud of in private–it’s that she did so so brazenly in front of her supposedly objective news team.

Conservatives4Palin raises another good point about Couric and Co.’s efforts to marginalize the former Alaska governor from day one: “[W]hat in [Palin's] impressive biography did CBS News and Couric choose to focus on? Moose burgers and beauty pageants.”

And so began the JournoListing of Sarah Palin. But the chickens have come home to roost and it’s Couric who, by belittling Sarah Palin, looks petty and pathetic in the end.

At least Palin is an honest, kind human being, not a phony, condescending BITCH.

This has absolutely no effect on her ability to be an objective journolist.

Most Major network News viewers do not have cable or Sat. reception. Over the air news is watched by socialist minions and commited socialist idiots.

Couric turns my stomach and Palin is the antithesis of Couric and for many reasons Couric is jealous.

palin saved couric’s career to be honest. If it wasn’t for that interview, couric would’ve long been fired, but she wont be anymore because her boss fear the message it will send if he sacked an anti-palin interviewer

She doesn't just mock Palin either. Get this one:

"I'm glad you took out the feminine side ... because you can be feminine and play basketball, right Jerry?" (said with clear sarcasm)

Someone should ask the WNBA and NCAA what they think of THAT comment.

CBS is going to have this pulled from a thousand websites today. I hope it gets archived somewhere and played over and over. What putrid disdain she showed.

Does any of these overpriced talking heads even consider the fact that their name may be permanently known as the one who killed network TV news? It will happen in their lifetime.

Everything about Katie Couric annoys me and always has. Like B.O. himself, she thinks she is far cuter and smarter than she is. When I was a kid, I used to “play teacher.” She “plays journalist.”

When I think of New York City, I think of self-important, elitist snobs like Couric, looking down her nose at honest hard-working everyday Americans.

And that word “annoying” is the word that Palin said in her book why she gave short, non-responsive answers to Katie in the interview...She said that Couric annoyed the hell out of her and that they had to spend almost three days interviewing

I believe it has everything to do with objectivity. I have disliked Couric since her coronation following her husband’s death. Do you think I could be objective in any comment about Couric?

well, Katie, as long as we're making fun....what the hell's up with your eyes? Why do you squint and blink all the time?

BTW, Katie, I'm a special education aide and I can work with you to help make reading a little easier for you. I noticed you have a bit of a hard time reading.

"What putrid disdain she showed"

The real question is Couric/CBS HAVE A MOTIVE? The answer of is obvious, give their RADICAL LEFTIST CANDIATE a pass, attack the enemy with every lie they can find.

I do not know you, but I would like to say AMEN to your statement. I would like to kiss the person who found this example of LIBERAL MARXIST TRASH!

Sarah Palin is a doer.....HONOR, GOD and COUNTRY!

When she takes the torch in January of 2013, YOU WILL SEE AMERICA COME ALIVE. SHE WILL CLEAN OUT WASHINGTON and QUICKLY.......THERE IS NO ONE ELSE ALIVE WHO CAN DO WHAT SHE CAN, AND WILL DO! She is truly the SAVIOR OF AMERICA and ALL THESE HIGHLY EDUCATED GOOFS HAD BETTER MOVE ASIDE....Business will thrive, jobs will come, the Military will be run by the Military and THERE IS NO ONE WHO HAS THE ABILITY TO DO WHAT SHE WILL. Republicans, Democrats, Communists, MARXISTS......I ADVISE YOU TO GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE.....THE PATRIOTS ARE GOING TO RESTORE AMERICA!

“When I think of New York City, I think of self-important, elitist snobs like Couric, looking down her nose at honest hard-working everyday Americans.”

Very True! I think the same thing on a regular basis and I’m only 60 miles from NYC. It’s a world far removed from the rest of the country, except Hollyweird.

Most all of the major US cities are sanctuaries for pointy-head liberal elites who think they know how to run your life better than you.

Houston, Austin, Dallas,San Antonio all fit that description.
