Journalist Katie Couric selectively edited her 2016 interview with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by omitting negative comments the justice made about those who kneel during the national anthem, she admitted in her new memoir.
Their 2016 chat came in the midst of the furor of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to take a knee during the playing of the national anthem to protest police brutality. Several other professional athletes began to take his lead and kneel instead of standing during the anthem. Ginsburg told Couric she was opposed to the action, saying those who kneel during the anthem were showing “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life,” according to new reporting by the Daily Mail.
The article goes on to state the following:
Couric said she was “conflicted” about including the justice’s comment because she was a “big RBG fan” and admitted to seeking advice from some fellow journalists about what to do. Ultimately, the story she wrote for Yahoo! News did include quotes from Ginsburg saying kneelers were “dumb and disrespectful,” but left out the above remarks.
Referring to herself as a “big RBG fan,” Couric admitted that she wanted to “protect” Ginsburg, who passed away in September of 2020.
Katie Couric says she cut quotes from an interview with RBG in 2016 where the SCOTUS Justice said that kneeling during the National Anthem shows a “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents & grandparents to live a decent life.”https://t.co/XBnopuptSu

Stephen Gutowski of the Washington Free Beacon broke the story of Couric selectively editing an interview with pro-gun activists to make them look dumbfounded by one of her questions back in 2016.
“I, for one, am shocked to hear Katie Couric would do something like this,” Gutowski tweeted of the recent report on Couric.
