Being one who has exposed lies from the left and got a White Plantationist ( white liberal ) banned on four different Liberal news venues, I actually understand why Couric did what she did. I personally know of a obscure left wing blog that on a daily basis takes actual facts and turns them sideways. I guess that’s done to keep the 15-20 followers of that blog to stay loyal.
For those who don’t know, Couric left out comments that RGB made that would surprise those on the left. What were they?
The athletes, Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, showed contempt for those who “made it possible for their parents and grandparents.”
In the interview — which was published by Yahoo News, where Couric was global news anchor at the time — she asked Ginsburg about then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others who refused to stand during the playing of the national anthem before NFL games. Replied Ginsburg: “I think it’s really dumb of them.”
“Would I arrest them for doing it? No,” Ginsburg elaborated. “I think it’s dumb and disrespectful. I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.”
Couric then asked, “But when it comes to these football players, you may find their actions offensive, but what you’re saying is, it’s within their rights to exercise those actions?”
“Yes,” said Ginsburg. “If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.”
One of the reasons Couric edited the comments? Couric claims that Ginsburg, who was 83 at the time, was ‘elderly and probably didn’t fully understand the question’
Couric said she was conflicted because, as a Supreme Court Justice, Ginsburg’s thoughts were important for people to hear, but as a fan, she allowed her personal politics to influence her editing decision. In closing, According to a new report in The Daily Mail, Couric writes in her memoir that she edited out the comments because they were “unworthy of a crusader for equality” like Ginsburg.
