will we see RBG get cancelled again?

:marseysjw::marseyjudge::!marseysjw:

Katie Couric has admitted to 'protecting' Ruth Bader Ginsburg from public backlash by cutting out negative comments she made about people who kneel during the national anthem.

The former Today show host reveals in her new book that she let her personal political views influence her editing decisions after her interview with the late Supreme Court justice in 2016.

In new memoir, Going There, Couric writes that she edited out a part where Ginsburg said that those who kneel during the national anthem are showing 'contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.'

The published story, which Couric wrote for Yahoo! News in 2016, did include quotes from Ginsburg saying refusing to stand for the anthem was 'dumb and disrespectful', but omitted more problematic remarks.

But Couric writes in her memoir that she thought the justice, who was 83 at the time, was 'elderly and probably didn't fully understand the question.'

The anecdote is the latest controversial revelation to emerge from Couric's book, which is set to be released October 26.

DailyMail.com previously revealed how the veteran news anchor brutally rips into her former colleagues, ex-boyfriends, and celebrities in the score-settling tome, which runs to 500 pages.

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.

Couric called a friend, David Brooks, a New York Times journ*list, who advised her that Ginsburg probably didn't understand the question, even though she was still serving on the Supreme Court at the time.

However David Westin, the former head of ABC News, advised Couric to keep it in.

'She's on the Supreme Court. People should hear what she thinks,' he said, according to Couric.

The final version of the story, which meant to promote a compilation of Ginsburg's writings called, My Own Words, included her criticism of 'stupid' and 'arrogant' protesters.

But what was left out was arguably more inflammatory.

Ginsburg went on to say that such protests show a 'contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.'

She said: 'Which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from...as they became older they realize that this was youthful folly. And that's why education is important.'

Couric claims that she 'lost a lot of sleep over this one' and still wrestles with the decision she made.

According to Couric, she 'wanted to protect' Ginsburg and felt that the issue of racial justice was a 'blind spot' for her.

Ginsburg, who died last September at age 87, was asked for her thoughts after former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick came under fire in 2016 for taking a knee at the start of NFL games in protest against racial injustice.

'Would I arrest them for doing it? No,' she told Couric. '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.'

When Couric pushed further asking if she believes athletes are 'within their rights to exercise those actions', Ginsburg replied: 'Yes. 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,' she added.

DailyMail.com earlier revealed other eyebrow-raising confessions Couric makes in her book, including how she gave Ashleigh Banfield, the former CNN presenter, the cold shoulder at NBC because helping her would be 'self sabotage.'

Couric also slams Deborah Norville, who she replaced on NBC's Today show, for having a 'relentless perfection' which turned off breakfast show viewers.

Couric is just as blunt about her love life and says ex-boyfriend Brooks Perlin, who was 17 years her junior, was a 'mid-life crisis' while TV producer Tom Werner was a 'textbook narcissist'.

Couric puts down Martha Stewart and says that it took a 'few years in prison for her to develop a sense of humor.'

Even the Royal family end up in Couric's sights and she describes how Prince Harry reeked of cigarettes and alcohol when they met, and how Prince Andrew cozied up to Jeffrey Epstein at a bizarre dinner at his New York mansion.

Couric claimed that her former nanny, who she calls 'Doris' in the book, was creepy and needy and that she fired her for spreading gossip about her first husband.

DailyMail.com tracked down the nanny, whose real name is Nancy Poznek, and she claimed Couric was the needy one and was so disorganized it was like living with a 'teenage boy.'

"Too elderly" my ass. Ruth is from an older generation that wouldn't put up with this self-aggrandizing, performative bullshit.

Bitch too old, no understand.

how dare she say "i don't care what they do, i just think it's dumb as hell"!? who the fuck does this white privleged bitch think she is!?!?!?!??!

They're called the "greatest generation" for a reason. Yeah, yeah I know she's technically part of the "silent generation", but generations are a mindset, not strictly based on birth-year.

What she said seemed pretty strictly based to me.

Well they're certainly better than any generation since.

She comes from a generation that thought lynching BIPOC LGBTQIAP+ bodies was a fun afternoon outing. Sit your ass down.

If you really believe that then start a petition to euthanize everyone over the age of 70 to make sure you got all the bigots.

We tried that, the chuds said we had to get β€œvaccinated” and shit to save them. 😩

an older generation that wouldn't put up with this self-aggrandizing, performative bullshit.

Yes, and their failure to see its necessity obviously illustrates that they don't understand the issues at hand.

Alright tell me what his actions actually changed? I cannot tell whether their ideology is real or not, so we settle on determining things by the results they bring.

Too elderly to understand the question, but certainly not too elderly to sit on the Supreme Court!

Just couldn't grasp the issues to fully understand them, like say, a Katie Couric can.

Couric puts down Martha Stewart and says that it took a 'few years in prison for her to develop a sense of humor.'

lol

she describes how Prince Harry reeked of cigarettes and alcohol when they met, and how Prince Andrew cozied up to Jeffrey Epstein at a bizarre dinner at his New York mansion.

LOL

No no no, when it's someone I like surely they meant better

Holy shit lol, RBG actually said πŸ€s should be grateful for getting shipped to America. :marseylaugh:

"The US government 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."

-RBG, 2016

β€œLook, they benefited from being in a different nation than their own. No doubt. How can you deny that?”

-RBG, 2017

Lol opening the it's all blackeys own fault he is still poor can of worms.

pretty based tbh. basketball-americans probably have the best quality of life of any basketball people in the world

Old people's lack of wrongthink filter is great.

They should be tbh, not the original slaves, but todays blacks should 100% be grateful

Lmao, imagine thinking a journo has a higher degree of understanding that even the most senile Supreme Court Justice.

Imagine thinking Nike shill and failure QB Colin Kaepernick has a higher degree of understanding than even the most senile Supreme Court justice

Bad journo, bad!

wrong about killing babies

wrong about Kaep

was RGB ever right about anything?

She liked Scalia so she can't have been all bad

Do you think they ever fucked?

She was right that the 2nd Amendment is obsolete and should be ignored by civilized jurists

Quick someone go spam this on r/politics and r/neoliberal

I thought the neolibs already hated her for not retiring under Obama.

She calls her ex a narcissist but holy shit a lot of her book sounds like it's just burning her relations. What could possibly be a more narcissistic act than to spread gossip about people you knew, in a one-sided conversation, for attention. Thank fuck I'm too insignificant to have fraternized with someone who will eventually write one of these "autobiographies."

Lol

Who is this chick?

Foid who has been on TV for like 50 years.

The edna mode one, or the pretty woman next to her?

Not the edna one, that one is the patron saint of whores on social media.

I'd have said birthing person Larry King but that wouldn't have narrowed it down, and would've disrespected the King.

Some old crow that Trump replaced, no biggie.

Why would casino man bully an elderly woman like that?

Because she fucking died like a loser. Buh-bye!

r/politics and r/television please

Although I know they'll just say it's daily mail and ignore

Someone else, not me

:marseywords2:

This story seemed too good to be true since it's from the Daily Fail. I did some googling though and what do you know, real news outlets are reporting it as well. Nice.

Even the Royal family end up in Couric's sights and she describes how Prince Harry reeked of cigarettes and alcohol when they met, and how Prince Andrew cozied up to Jeffrey Epstein at a bizarre dinner at his New York mansion.

The fucking globalists got her :marseyjones:

Based judge joins the conservative gang. Slavery was, truly, a favour

Imagine being a β€˜journalist’ in now times, the power to create hero’s and villains with a bit of editing. I guess a post humous canceling Is in order if the blacks see this

Shitlibs insist they don't EVER censor people and then the very next second will be frothing at the mouth, tears streaming down their faces as they censor even their most beloved people for wrong-think lol fucking ridiculous.
