Katie Couric Has Hissy-Fit Over Editor's Choice Of Word, Slaps Him Angrily

The "perky Eva Braun of morning chat," as Ann Coulter said (approximately).

"During the tuberculosis story in June, Couric got angry with news editor Jerry Cipriano for using a word she detested— 'sputum' —and the staff grew tense when she began slapping him 'over and over and over again' on the arm, according to a source familiar with the scene. It had seemed like a joke at first, but it quickly became clear that she wasn’t kidding."

Sputum. Heh.

The scripts don't get sputum. That's just. The way. It fucking. Is. Don't make a maniac out of me.

Bonus! NBC News justifies its fawning coverage of Gore's Live Earth propaganda coup, claiming "global warming" isn't a political issue at all.

NBC and its cable networks devoted a total of 35 hours of air time Saturday to the Live Earth concerts, organized by Al Gore to call attention to what he calls a global warming "crisis."

...

Wasn't NBC, whose news division covers the debate over climate change, providing a huge platform for advocates on one side of a contentious issue? And isn't the network helping a prominent Democrat -- who granted "Today" an interview last week in which he was asked again about his presidential ambitions -- raise money?

Dan Harrison, an NBC senior vice president, does not back away from the message. He calls the Gore effort "an initiative we believe in," including parent company General Electric. "I really don't think climate change is a political issue," Harrison says.

Really?

"Everyone agrees it's happening. If it's a political issue, it's whether the political will exists to address that change. We know we need to do something, and this is a way to heighten awareness."

"Everyone agrees." As usual, they mean "everyone who counts agrees," which most decidedly doesn't include you.

Via Instapundit. I think.
