Pot Calling Kettle Black

Perky Katie Couric has a hard-on for Face Book and Google. Only she and her cohorts can put out fake news.

Katie Couric, the highly influential journalist and television anchor, is yet another person to speak out against the tech industry for not caring about its potentially adverse effect on her industry.

“These tech companies are not media companies. They do not care about stories, about content, about true connection,” Couric told Recode founder Kara Swisher during a podcast published Wednesday. “I think they care about widgets and gadgets and delivery systems, but they aren’t super-interested in the vegetable soup that’s running through the pipes.”

Couric suggested that in order to remediate such a problem, a company needs to truly value good writing and what it can do.

When describing her time at Yahoo, she sounds like a woman scorned.

“I wouldn’t say it was an unhappy marriage, but it certainly was not fulfilling for me,” she said in the Recode interview. “I had all this great content, I was getting big interviews, and it was sort of like a tree falling in the forest.”

Katie is a good chef when it comes to soup.

No word on Dan Rather's kitchen qualifications.


On a related note, Paul Joseph Watson and Sargon of Akkad discuss the recent You Tube purge.
