  • When Did Donald Trump become a Racist?

    The Philadelphia Tribune ^ | August 17, 2018 | Raynard Jackson
    With the mainstream media focusing on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots of last year, many news organizations are basically blaming President Trump for stoking the hatred and racial tension that led to the violence in that small college town, because of his coarse rhetoric on immigration and the NFL player protests. I will concede that Trump is not without blame in contributing to some of the coarseness of our society, but it’s hard to deny the fact that Trump has been consistent his whole, adult life. Trump has always been brash, arrogant, self-centered, abrasive in his language, and...
  • Katie Couric Defends Matt Lauer: ‘A Lot of NBC Execs’ Have Secret Buttons in Their Offices (!!??)

    Katie Couric, half of the former Today show duo with Matt Lauer, explained away the sketchy, secret button used by her disgraced ex-colleague: “A lot of NBC executives” have that. Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show, Couric waded into dangerous territory: “I think the whole button thing.... a lot of stuff gets misreported and blown out of proportion.” Couric continued her assessment of “the button.” Note how she altered what it apparently did: “A lot of NBC executives have those buttons that opened and closed doors.” No. Here’s how Variety first reported the purpose of Lauer's office button: His office...
  • New Low: Katie Couric Chats Up Sex Robots Who Want to ‘Make Love’ to Her ‘Hot Body(LOLOLOL!)

    What has happened to Katie Couric’s career? On Tuesday’s Nightline, she was reduced to “interviewing” sex robots who want to “make love” to her “sexy ass.” Though Couric occasionally questioned the moral cesspool that is the coming sex robot industry, the segment was mostly a promotional for it. While chatting with “Harmony,” she listens as the sex robot tells her: “I like books, computers, making new friends. I also love making love to you.” “Harmony” continued: “I want to be your best friend and much more.” The former anchor of the CBS Evening News responded: “Maybe not the much more...

    NBC's Katie Couric was slammed across social media for saying Dutch successes in Olympic speed skating were because skating is an “important mode of transport” in their country. “It’s probably not a news flash to tell you the Dutch are really, really good at speed skating… ‘Why are they so good?’ you may be asking yourself,” Couric mused during Friday’s opening ceremony. “Because skating is an important mode of transportation in a city like Amsterdam.” She said Amsterdam “has lots of canals that can freeze in winter. So, for as long as the canals have existed, the Dutch have skated...

    Katie Couric has finally broken her silence over Matt Lauer’s sexual assault accusations and his firing from the “Today” show. “The whole thing has been very painful for me,” Couric told People Magazine. “The accounts I’ve read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it’s completely unacceptable that any women at the ‘Today’ show experienced this kind of treatment.” Couric co-hosted NBC’s “Today” show with Lauer for 15 years, but left in May 2006 to anchor “CBS Evening News.” “I had no idea this was going on during my tenure or after I left,” she continued. “I think...

    I'll bet Katie Couric never expected to get the smackdown she received on Monday morning in the pages of the New York Times, inevitably her paper of choice. But TV critic Alessandra Stanley slapped the "Mean Girl of Morning TV" hard and said in print what has been media gossip for months: that NBC is in a panic about the falling ratings of that cash cow, The Today Show. Her Cuteness is no longer the most popular girl in the crowd, with "likeability" ratings in the toilet. In fact, Katie's recent Q ratings were lower even than Dan Rather's. Remember...

    Five years before NBC axed Matt Lauer amid allegations of sexual misconduct, former "Today" show anchor Katie Couric addressed her longtime co-host's most "annoying" habit. During a June 2012 appearance on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," Couric, 60, revealed Lauer, 59, got touchy with her behind during the show's "Plead the Fifth" segment. "He pinches me on the ass a lot," Couric said.

    So just how low has Katie Couric fallen? The former co-host of the Today Show and anchor of CBS Evening News has been on a rapid career plunge recently. Her last regular gig was as Global Anchor for Yahoo!News but she left that in June.  Couric has now apparently reached the bottom of the barrel. It is impossible to see how she could go any lower than this interview session for InStyle magazine where she asks cringeworthy questions to total strangers. Among the questions posed by Couric are "Do you watch porn?" and asking the husband half of a couple from Colombia, "Have...

    Somewhere, in an alternate universe from hell, Anthony Scaramucci and Megyn Kelly are getting married in a ceremony presided over by Maxine Waters. Reince Priebus is the best man, Katie Couric is the maid of honor, and Freddie Mercury is belting out “Bohemian Rhapsody”. I’m glad I don’t live in that universe. This one is cray cray enough. I hadn’t heard this until this morning, but in addition to a) being hired to do a job for which he had no visible qualifications, b) alienating everyone in the West Wing of the White House during his first 24 hours on...

    On a blind date with private-equity executive John Molner in early 2012, her future husband ordered a soft-shell crab appetizer and pork belly entree. “I thought ‘wow, this guy eats with gusto,” recalls Yahoo’s global news anchor, 60. “That’s my kind of man.” (That night, Couric accidentally ordered a $500 bottle of wine because she was trying to impress her husband-to-be.) Food, you see, is her thing — she admits she’s “always been slightly neurotic” about it — which may explain why the Yahoo YHOO, -0.27% anchor, who reportedly earns $10 million annually, is waiving her fee for “Full Plate...

    It used to appear so simple for many of us: you were a boy or you were a girl. Girls wore pink, and boys wore blue; girls played with dolls, and boys played with trucks. Yet around the globe, these traditional notions of gender are changing rapidly, and labels are no longer so clear cut. National Geographic sets out to explore this evolving concept of gender through the lens of science, society and culture in the groundbreaking new two-hour documentary GENDER REVOLUTION: A JOURNEY WITH KATIE COURIC, premiering Monday, Feb. 6, at 9/8c. Produced by Katie Couric Media with National...

    A Virginia gun-rights group is suing Katie Couric and the producers of the documentary “Under the Gun” for $12 million in defamation over an interview that was revealed to have been deceptively edited. The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) and two gun-rights activists featured in the film, Daniel Hawes and Patricia Webb, are suing Ms. Couric, who produced the documentary and led the interview in question, as well as director Stephanie Soechtig, Atlas Films and Epix, the film’s distributor. The suit filed in federal court Tuesday, obtained by BearingArms.com, claimed the producers of the film “intentionally manipulated” footage to make...

    Producer Katie Couric and Director Stephanie Soechtig stand accused of doctoring the responses of a group of participants in their anti-gun propaganda film, Under the Gun. If substantiated, the claim will destroy Couric’s reputation as a journalist and Soechtig’s reputation as a director. It appears that the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) participants have the evidence in the form of audio from the interview that substantiates their claims.

    The makers of a new Katie Couric documentary on gun violence deceptively edited an interview between Couric and a group of gun rights activists in an apparent attempt to embarrass the activists, an audio recording of the full interview shows. At the 21:48 mark of Under the Gun a scene of Katie Couric interviewing members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a gun rights organization, is shown. Couric can be heard in the interview asking activists from the group, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?” The...

    Katie Couric apologized on Monday after days of criticism about a “misleading” edit in her new documentary that made gun rights advocates “appear to be speechless” when asked a simple question about gun control. “I take responsibility,” the news anchor wrote in a statement on the website for Under the Gun, a documentary about gun violence in America that she narrated and produced.

    On May 31, presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump weighed in on Katie Couric’s “fraudulent editing,” tweeting that she “should be ashamed” of herself. Katie Couric’s gun control film — Under the Gun — contains an 8-second pause that was inserted in the editing process. That pause gives viewers the false impression that pro-gun proponents were unsure or stumped when Couric questioned them about gun control.

    What was your intention with inserting that pause? You have Katie asking the group this question, “Do you think people on the terror watch list should be allowed to own guns?” Katie’s asking the question of the group, but as the filmmaker, I want to ask the question of the audience. So what I was thinking, my editor was thinking was we need to stop for a second, because the film moves along at a really fast clip. So you’ll see that throughout we’ll stop down after something happens or when we present something. The terror watch list is a...

    Katie Couric’s 2014 documentary Fed Up includes instances of deceptive editing similar to 2016’s Under the Gun, according to several people familiar with the making of the film. Fed Up, which focuses on obesity and the food industry, was directed by Stephanie Soechtig and produced by Couric. The film includes two interviews with figures who hold viewpoints counter to the narrative of the film, and sources say both interviews include at least one misleading or deceptive edit intended to embarrass the interviewee. Dr. David Allison, an interview subject in the film and the director of the Nutrition Obesity Research Center,...

    But can't think of anything to do about her, like, oh, say, fire her for being a dishonest hack. It’s impossible to feel any sympathy for Yahoo here. When they made Katie Couric their “global anchor” on the apparent belief that she was some sort of serious journalist, they either knew what they were getting into or were so ignorant of the real truth that they were investing in their own demise. And Yahoo has enough problems apart from the fact that the face of its news operation is a lying left-wing propagandist masquerading - and not very convincingly -...

    Katie, get your gun lawyer. By now you’ve probably heard about Katie Couric’s new anti-gun documentary “Under The Gun,” and how her producer doctored video of interviews with gun owners in order to make them look stupid and heartless. Couric’s producer and director, Stephanie Soechtig, admitted to doctoring the video, and Couric herself kinda sorta apologized for it. But that’s not the worst thing that happened with the making of this documentary. It turns out that Couric’s production team deliberately conspired to violate federal gun laws. According to video obtained by Ammoland, a shooting sports news website, one of Couric’s...
