Katie Couric Should Tune In!

Why Mainstream Media Fails.     

                                                                                                                                             6-09-09                            

Why are the mainstream media numbers so low? How come no one is tuning in? Because of Idiots like Couric, at a annual event held by the school’s seniors the day before they graduate Katie had this to say;                fishwrap

Couric was speaking at Princeton’s “Class Day,    As she started her address to the Class of 2009, Couric told the students, “Coming here was a real no brainer! After all, I can see New Jersey from my house!”   The anchor was referring to an interview Palin gave to ABC News during last year’s presidential campaign, in which Palin had said of Russia, “They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.”

Couric also took a swipe at traditional-marriage-defending Miss California Carrie Prejean in the same passage that she praised Judge Sotomayor and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  In this instance, Couric likened Prejean to Anita Bryant, a popular singer from the 1950s through the 1970s, who led a successful campaign in Miami to repeal a pro-homosexual ordinance.  
 
[I]t’s been quite a year for women,” said Couric. “After all, a Latina has just been nominated to the Supreme Court … only the third woman in history. And I heard she graduated summa cum laude from a little school in New Jersey! Hillary Clinton was the first serious female presidential candidate and made 18 million cracks in the ultimate glass ceiling. And then of course, there’s Carrie Prejean, Miss California. No one has done more to motivate gay rights activists since Anita Bryant. (Your parents know who she is.)”
Couric also took swipes at conservatives Rush Limbaugh, the talk radio host, and Donald Rumsfeld, the former secretary of defense.

She then advised the Princeton grads that they must guard against “nastiness.”

“Next, don’t be a hater,” said Couric. “Princeton has taught you to think critically, to approach things with a healthy dose of skepticism … and that’s a good thing, as Martha Stewart would say. But you really must guard against the cynicism and nastiness that are so pervasive today, particularly on the internet.

The CBS News anchoer then posted her remarks from Princeton’s Class Day on the liberal Huffington Post.

Does Katie hear  herself as she is speaking?  Do any of the hypocritical left hear themselves or is this some kind of special ability they lack? Has Couric heard any of the hate filled rederic coming out of our institutions or what you get when you tune into mainstream media?  ie ( Anderson Coopers ” Tea bagging”  comment)  or just about anything you get on MSNBC. Talk about nastiness, hate,The Hollywood left get away with whatever they want although I would not consider Janeane ( I can’t puke any harder)  Garofalo a actress in any sense.  But  The Puffington post Katie,,’ really’ The Puffington post  is your home of hate, Please Katie stop with the elitist attitude you can’t afford it anymore!

    If you had actually read her remarks, you would have realized the whole speech was delivered tongue-in-cheek.

    I’m not sure what your actual problem is, here. Are media people not allowed to have a sense of humor in your universe? She was not reporting news, she was doing a stand-up comedy routine. The speakers at Princeton’s Class Day are expected to be silly. Look at the list of previous speakers – they’re all comedians.

    I think you need to get a grip, KP.

    It’s also considered bad form to quote from other sources without attribution.

    You should mention that you got your info from http://www.cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=49244

    By the way this is a hate filled site but I do not preach b.s!!!!! I say it as I see it.

    CNS is a hard-core right-wing BS site, by the way. And your saying it as they see it, not as you do.

    My first comment seems to have disappeared into the ether, so I’ll try again:

    I’m not sure what your problem is, here. If you had bothered actually to read Couric’s post at The Huffington Post, it would be obvious that the parts you’re objecting to were delivered tongue-in-cheek. The speakers at Class Day at Princeton are typically comedians, and are expected to deliver a stand-up routine as part of their talk.

    I guess media people aren’t allowed to have a sense of humor in your universe. She wasn’t doing anything related to reporting news, so I fail to see how this has anything to do with the ratings at CBS News.

    This strikes me as a rather pointless tirade, KP. I think you need to get a grip.
