I’m not complaining about the interview. Palin herself said it was an awful interview. It’s also the go-to interview for any of her detractors to use against her. Disregarding any other interview she's done since then.
I am using this to help illustrate the blatantly obvious biased that Katie Couric and the rest of the Left Wing Media (LWM) has. Within a matter of weeks, Couric interviewed Joe ‘The Sheriff’ Biden and helped to showcase his outright ignorance of historical knowledge. Couric’s own knowledge of history must be on par with that of Biden’s because she let it fly right over her head without any notice. She had the look of a groupie waiting patiently to go backstage to see the rock star but has to deal with the security guard first. “OK, old man, let’s get this over with so I can move onto Barack.”
The key quote for those who don't want to watch the interview:
“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed,” Biden told Couric. “He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.’”And that’s what CBS left in. Who knows what ended up on the cutting room floor in order to present a favorable view of Obama’s campaign. If Couric was half the journalist she claimed to be it would have been her duty to correct Biden. If not there then mention it during the broadcast. Somehow it slipped past the layers of fact checkers that CBS employs.
Couric was dead last in the ratings before interviewing Palin. In fact she would have to have doubled her ratings to catch up with who was in second place. Couric had nothing to lose but her job. Her ratings surged for a little while afterwards; however she’s back in last place again. This award was a way to pat her on the head to let her know how good of a little liberal doggie she is.
