Conservative bloggers are sure up in arms about leaked video of Katie Couric reportedly mocking and ridiculing Sarah Palin and her family.
I watched the video, and I don’t see it. Couric wanted to pronounce “Wasilla” correctly. Understandable. She also made a remark about Sarah and Todd’s choice of baby names. Also no big deal.
I did the same thing the first time I heard “Track” and “Trig.” Didn’t you?
Anyway, I’m not the only one. Right Scoop doesn’t see it either.
I know some of you will disagree with me, but I don’t think this is that big of a deal. I might say the same thing about names that I find odd too. You can read into it whatever you want, but it’s off camera and I just think it’s being over hyped around the interwebs.
Not that big of a deal.
Now if someone wanted to revisit Couric’s infamous interview with Palin, which truly did drip with bias and disdain as she badgered Palin for nitpicky answers to questions clearly designed to frame Palin as stupid and ignorant (and I might add, mission accomplished) — I’m with you every step of the way. Have at it.
Anyway, here’s the video. You can decide for yourself.
Incidentally, maybe it’s karma, but Couric has recently exposed herself to a little ridicule of her own. Picures and more at Daily Caller.
