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.”
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 sex robot industry, the segment is 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.”
While appearing on CBS’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday to bemoan the “insane” and “depressing” state of the country under President Trump, journalist Katie Couric simultaneously went on all three broadcast networks to promote her new National Geographic documentary series and plead for “civil discourse.”
Even the president of America’s largest abortion provider admits that media aren’t impartial when it comes abortion. According to her, Donald Trump’s 2016 description of “ripping the baby out of the womb” perturbed some journalists. “Katie was clearly disturbed,” she recalled, and that left her “worried that she and other reporters were getting used to this level of discourse.”
Just imagine a world where seemingly everything bad is President Trump’s fault. For Washington Post sports columnist Jerry Brewer, that seems to be the world he inhabits. In his column for Friday’s print edition, Brewer blamed “our most profane, word-abusing leader” and President for three screw-ups by NBC guest host Katie Couric, former Asia expert Joshua Cooper Ramo, and Alpine skiing commentator Bodie Miller.
In a monumental gaffe, former Today co-host Katie Couric, in covering the Winter Olympics opening ceremony for NBC, betrayed epic ignorance about the Netherlands in attributing its rich tradition in speed skating Olympic performances to skating being "a mode of transportation" there. She then added that skating is important "because of lots of canals that freeze in the winter."
RESTON, VA -- Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell released the following statement today calling on NBC to hire an independent investigator to review its culture of sexual misconduct following new claims against MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. According to a report by the Daily Caller, NBC paid one of Matthew’s former producers $40,000 after she filed a sexual harassment complaint against the Hardball host in 1999.
The shocked faces at NBC and in the media last week claiming "nobody knew" about Matt Lauer's harassment and abuse of women became impossible to believe Tuesday evening. That's when Brian Flood at Fox News, partly cribbing from a still-available October 2008 story at the Village Voice, revealed that a celebrity roast that month in Lauer's honor "left little doubt that Lauer’s colleagues (and those in attendance — Ed.) knew NBC’s biggest star had a troubled marriage and a wandering eye." The Voice's account of the event also serves as an especially revealing and depressing window into the lack of values and the sick sense of "humor" among the elites in entertainment and the media — and that was nine years ago.
In retrospect, this is awkward. On Tuesday, Matt Lauer was fired from NBC for gross sexual misconduct. In June of 2012, his former co-host, Katie Couric, appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens. Host Andy Cohen wondered, “You co-hosted the Today show with Matt Lauer for 15 years. What is Matt’s most annoying habit?”
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 you ever cheated on your spouse?" Watching the interview is actually much worse than reading about it so please be prepared to go into a state of total cringe.
The liberal media love Former Vice President Al Gore, the politician turned climate “crusader.” So much so that one of the biggest media companies in the nation — Viacom — is throwing its massive weight behind his new movie. That means Viacom’s “approximately 700 million global subscribers” will be inundated with global warming propaganda to prop up Gore’s Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which was already being distributed by Viacom’s Paramount brand. Expect the $14-billion company’s other outlets like MTV, VH1, CMT, BET, Comedy Central, Spike and even Nickelodeon to heat up your cable box pushing the flawed documentary and climate alarmism.
In Thursday’s edition of liberal hypocrisy, long-time liberal news anchor and deceptive video editor Katie Couric bemoaned to the New York Daily News that fake news is currently “tearing” the U.S. “apart at the seams” with “quite educated” friends falling for fake stories while assigning no blame to the liberal media establishment she’s been a part of for decades.
