Profile in Bias: Katie Couric
Media Research Center ^

Posted on 06/26/2002 8:00:18 PM PDT by B.R. Burton

Is Katie Couric really the biased liberal that conservatives think she is? Well, let's review:

- Media Bias Complaint by Congressman Robert Ehrlich
- Media Bias by Jonah Goldberg
- A gun rights advocate article notes Couric in her interview with Heston here.
- Hate Campaign Over Hate Crimes
- Blacks Protest Media Bias Against Cuban-Americans
- Katie's Crusades
- The leftist media

Perhaps the worst is where Katie Couric Alludes to Christian Conservatives in the Death of James Bird and Matthew Shepard (IN VIDEO:Click here)

: "Let’s talk a little bit more about the right wing because I know that’s something you feel very strongly about. But this is actually not necessarily about the right wing, but perhaps a climate that some say has been established by religious zealots or Christian conservatives. There have been two recent incidents in the news, I think, that upset most people in this country, that is the dragging death of James Byrd Junior and the beating death of Matthew Shepard. I just would like you to reflect on whether you feel people in this country are increasingly intolerant, mean-spirited, et cetera, and what, if anything, can be done about that because a lot of people get very discouraged when they hear and see this kind of brutality taking place."
— To former Texas Governor Ann Richards as she hosted a 92nd Street Y appearance in New York City on March 3 shown by C-SPAN on April 3, 1999.

Well, you can be sure Anne Richards was nodding her head up and down the whole time like some dashboard dog. This was nothing more than a case of Frick talking to Frack.

I don't watch Today anymore. Now I'm even happier that I don't.

I knew Katie was biased, but I didn't realize how brazenly biased her words were until now. I mistakenly thought she was more subtle.

single shot revolvers.

MMMhuum! This chick knows her fire arms. People that don't a sh#t from shinola about weapons are going to be writting our arms legislation. That's reassuring.
