Skip to comments.SOTU: Couric Crushed Obama Didn't Raise Gun Control
Posted on 01/28/2011 3:47:39 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Given the chance to interview Katie Couric, I wouldn't ask her what newspapers she reads. I'd want to know how she understands her role as anchor, and why she thinks it's appropriate to express opinions on controversial issues of the day.
For that's just what she's done on the subject of gun control, expressing disappointment that Pres. Obama didn't raise it in his SOTU.
Describing her dissatisfaction in her "Notebook" yesterday, Couric asserted that PBO's failure to raise gun control put a "cloud" over the SOTU.

Thanks GLGB. Does anyone care what this highly-overpaid and soon-to-be-unemployed dipsh*t says?
Couric crushed Obama didn’t push gun control in SOTU. Ping to Today show list.
I still don't know why one of the three doesn't try to truly differentiate themselves. They see how convervative, American values dominate the airwaves. Would be the same for TV.
I’m not against “anchors” giving their opinions. In fact, I think they should more openly declare their political affiliations, since they all have them and to pretend that they don’t is BS.
On the issue of guns itself, of course, empty-headed-Katie is as knowledgeable as she is on nuclear physics.
That Hag should be run out of town.
All the news Katie supports & why you hicks are too stupid to know what's good for you!
I guess that Katie would like access to Obama's teleprompter so she could program in her pet peeves. Gun control takes guns away from law abiding citizens, so only criminals (and federal authorities) have guns.
Maybe if Couric would take a look at news analysis written in Great Britain she would have a better understanding of the weaknesses in Obama's ineffective, pathetic, and platitude ridden SOTU speech. What about Sudan, Afghanistan, substance in connection with our debt, and a host of other absent words?
Couric does have a pretty face if she but smiles and keeps her mouth shut.
No, Katie, there were so many clouds over the SOTU already, there wasn't room for another one. It's basic meteorology.

And let me take this opportunity to say that of all the innumerable print
and broadcast journalists who have interviewed me in the U.S. and abroad
since I arrived on the scene nearly 20 years ago, Katie Couric was
definitively the stupidest.
— Camille Paglia
“so only criminals (and federal authorities) have guns.”
The difference between the two is razor thin.
Thanks for the amazing cite. Of course I don’t always agree with her but enjoy and respect Paglia.
Your time has past ****! WE WON... WE WILL WIN MORE... deal with it... you skank wh0re for satan!
I’m crushed that Obama didn’t raise Couric control.
When Couric interviewed Ann Coulter it became painfully clear how stupid Couric was.
She was also disappointed that infanticide, death panels, and euthanasia were not mentioned.
The party is over Couric, all the dope is gone, the alcohol has been drunk, the food stale.
In my book, always Katie Colic.
>> Couric does have a pretty face
if you like botox and Bond-O.
I was thinking her face has a sort of mannequin-like quality. Vacant and plastic.
if you like botox and Bond-O.
I guess that I have not seen her on tv for twenty years or so. I think that you are correct, especially about the Bond-O.
She's not only crushed, but folded, spindled and mutilated. I hope her head explodes too.
With the difference being that on average criminals do lees harm.
Thanks for the amazing cite. Of course I dont always agree with her but enjoy and respect Paglia.That's how I feel also; disagree with her but Paglia has has my respect because she is honest and funny. The first essay I read was her Blue Light Special screed and working in "academentia" myself at the time, I could appreciate her fine job of gutting their pretensions.
When Couric interviewed Ann Coulter it became painfully clear how stupid Couric was.I wish I'd seen it. Am currently youtube-impaired, but a hardware upgrade is in progress. I'll bet Coulter rolled right over the perky one.
When you finally get to see the interview, the words snarky, unprofessional, condescending, and STUPID will be demonstrated by the affable cootie Couric. That she gets paid the amount she is getting, is an indictment of management’s stupidity.
