Katie Couric Reveals that Ruth Bader Ginsburg Slammed Kneeling Protests of the Flag -- But Couric Suppressed Her Comments Both to Protect the Leftwing Ginsburg, and the Leftwing Protests

"Journalists" just care about the truth, right?

All they care about is "informing the public," right?

And, maybe, sometimes, suppressing facts which might cause dissent within the country's left wing, and which might hurt Democrats' unity.

EXCLUSIVE: Katie Couric covered up RBG's dislike for taking the knee: Anchor says she edited 2016 interview to 'protect' the justice after she said people who kneel are showing 'contempt for a government that made a decent life possible'

Katie Couric has admitted to editing out Ruth Bader Ginsburg's controversial comments from her 2016 sit-down with the late Supreme Court Justice

Couric writes that she was faced with a 'conundrum' while working on the story for Yahoo! News, in her scathing new memoir, Going There, released October 26

The former Today show host reveals Ginsburg responded negatively when asked about people who kneel for the national anthem as a protest against racism

The published story did include quotes from the justice calling the gesture 'dumb and disrespectful' but omitted more controversial remarks

Ginsburg had also said that such protests showed 'contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life' '...which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from...as they became older they realize that this was youthful folly,' she added

Couric claims that Ginsburg, who was 83 at the time, was 'elderly and probably didn't fully understand the question'

She admits she 'wanted to protect' Ginsburg and felt that the issue of racial justice was a 'blind spot' for her

It's also harder to "cancel" critics of the kneeling protests as "racists" if a leftwing icon like Ruth Bader Ginsburg is joining the criticism.

Which is a more salient reason for Couric suppressing these remarks: She wanted to keep the leftwing narrative "clean" of any adulteration and confusion.

...

Couric, 64, writes that she always tried to keep her 'personal politics' out of her reporting throughout her career.

But she faced a 'conundrum' when Ginsburg made comments about Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL player who became the controversial figurehead behind the national anthem protest against racial injustice.

Couric felt that when Ginsburg said that people like Kaepernick were 'dumb and disrespectful' they were comments that were 'unworthy of a crusader for equality' like the liberal Supreme Court justice.

The day after the sit-down, the head of public affairs for the Supreme Court emailed Couric to say the late justice had 'misspoken' and asked that it be removed from the story.

Couric writes that she was 'conflicted' because she was a 'big RBG fan', referring to Ginsburg's moniker.

Well, in fairness, this is only Katie Couric's first instance of selectively editing an interview to accomplish a leftwing agenda victory.

No it's not.

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 documentary then shows the activists sitting silently for nine awkward seconds, unable to provide an answer. It then cuts to the next scene....

However, raw audio of the interview between Katie Couric and the activists provided to the Washington Free Beacon shows the scene was deceptively edited. Instead of silence, Couric’s question is met immediately with answers from the activists. A back and forth between a number of the league’s members and Couric over the issue of background checks proceeds for more than four minutes after the original question is asked.

"Journalists"

Only a Domestic Terrorist would claim they're shabby propagandists for the left.

You're not a Domestic Terrorist, are you?

WELL ARE YOU?!?!
