  • Meghan McCain: Katie Couric, others calling for 'deprogramming' Republicans can 'go to hell'

    "The View" co-host Meghan McCain said Monday that liberals like Katie Couric and others who had called for the "deprogramming" of some Donald Trump supporters could "go to hell." McCain said she thought there would be a stronger desire for unity from Democrats in the aftermath of President Biden's election win, but she said the language from liberals had been more concerned with dehumanizing Trump supporters, which she called dangerous for Democrats and the country. Couric and several others, including McCain's "The View" colleague Sunny Hostin, have referred to Trump backers as "brainwashed" or in need of "deprogramming" in the...

    There are concerns about Katie Couric as a guest host of “Jeopardy!” after her “condescending, elitist” remarks that GOP and Trump supporters should be “deprogrammed.” Days after “Jeopardy!” producers announced Couric would be a guest presenter of the ABC show following the death of beloved host Alex Trebek, she went on Bill Maher’s show and backed Trump’s impeachment and Twitter ban.

    Former NBC Today star and CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric toed her usual partisan Democrat line in an appearance on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher. Most notably, she insist Mitt Romney "seems like Nelson Mandela at this point." Joe Biden said Romney wanted to put "y'all back in chains" back in 2012, but now he's a secular saint.

    Katie Couric appears to have gone far beyond her days as a straight news journalist and taken a sharp turn to the left. On Friday night, the 64-year-old former co-anchor of NBC's "Today" show and later anchor of the "CBS Evening News" openly expressed disdain for President Trump and the Republican Party during an appearance on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." During the show's panel discussion segment, host Bill Maher kicked off a conversation on the GOP lawmakers who overwhelmingly backed the president in Wednesday's second impeachment vote. Couric, who is set to guest host on "Jeopardy!," had no...

    ‘Good Morning America’ host denies being friends with Epstein, ex-president downplayed travels together, and royal couple long ago expressed regret The new arrest of accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein has resurrected multiple reports about the wealthy and powerful people who once enjoyed the financier’s friendship or who socialized with him over the years, both before and after he was investigated in the mid-2000s for sexually abusing multiple underage girls at his estate in Palm Beach, Florida. For example, a much-cited Daily Beast report described how Epstein hosted a dinner party for longtime friend Prince Andrew in 2010 at his nine-story...

    ABC host George Stephanopoulos said he regrets dining with Jeffrey Epstein about a year after the accused sex trafficker finished his first stint in jail for pleading guilty to soliciting an underage prostitute. “That dinner was the first and last time I’ve seen him,” Stephanopoulos said in an email to The New York Times. “I should have done more due diligence. It was a mistake to go.” Epstein hosted Stephanopoulos and a slew of other media insiders — including news anchors Katie Couric and Charlie Rose, comedian Chelsea Handler and director Woody Allen — at his Manhattan townhome in December...

    New York Times, via MSn ^ | July 13, 2019 | Jodi Kantor, et al
    A strange thing happened when Jeffrey Epstein came back to New York City after being branded a sex offender: His reputation appeared to rise. In 2010, the year after he got out of a Florida prison, Katie Couric and George Stephanopoulos dined at his Manhattan mansion with a British royal. The next year, Mr. Epstein was photographed at a “billionaire’s dinner” attended by tech titans like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk. A page popped up on Harvard University’s website lauding his accomplishments, and superlative-filled news releases described his lofty ambitions as he dedicated $10 million to charitable causes.

    This is totally not some kind of PR-arranged beard date, this is real! During a Wednesday appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Katie Couric revealed that "a long time ago" she and the New Jersey politician went on a blind date together at a New York Giants game. "Wow, this just in!" she playfully exclaimed as the audience reacted with surprise. "He was really nice," Couric, 62, said of Booker, 49. "Did we kiss?" she said. "No, we did not kiss." Oh, this "date" happened at a highly public event (a Giants game) which is certain to get photographed and...

    The Philadelphia Tribune ^ | August 17, 2018 | Raynard Jackson
    With the mainstream media focusing on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots of last year, many news organizations are basically blaming President Trump for stoking the hatred and racial tension that led to the violence in that small college town, because of his coarse rhetoric on immigration and the NFL player protests. I will concede that Trump is not without blame in contributing to some of the coarseness of our society, but it’s hard to deny the fact that Trump has been consistent his whole, adult life. Trump has always been brash, arrogant, self-centered, abrasive in his language, and...

    Katie Couric, half of the former Today show duo with Matt Lauer, explained away the sketchy, secret button used by her disgraced ex-colleague: “A lot of NBC executives” have that. Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show, Couric waded into dangerous territory: “I think the whole button thing.... a lot of stuff gets misreported and blown out of proportion.” Couric continued her assessment of “the button.” Note how she altered what it apparently did: “A lot of NBC executives have those buttons that opened and closed doors.” No. Here’s how Variety first reported the purpose of Lauer's office button: His office...

    What has happened to Katie Couric’s career? On Tuesday’s Nightline, she was reduced to “interviewing” sex robots who want to “make love” to her “sexy ass.” Though Couric occasionally questioned the moral cesspool that is the coming sex robot industry, the segment was mostly a promotional for it. While chatting with “Harmony,” she listens as the sex robot tells her: “I like books, computers, making new friends. I also love making love to you.” “Harmony” continued: “I want to be your best friend and much more.” The former anchor of the CBS Evening News responded: “Maybe not the much more...

    NBC's Katie Couric was slammed across social media for saying Dutch successes in Olympic speed skating were because skating is an “important mode of transport” in their country. “It’s probably not a news flash to tell you the Dutch are really, really good at speed skating… ‘Why are they so good?’ you may be asking yourself,” Couric mused during Friday’s opening ceremony. “Because skating is an important mode of transportation in a city like Amsterdam.” She said Amsterdam “has lots of canals that can freeze in winter. So, for as long as the canals have existed, the Dutch have skated...

    Katie Couric has finally broken her silence over Matt Lauer’s sexual assault accusations and his firing from the “Today” show. “The whole thing has been very painful for me,” Couric told People Magazine. “The accounts I’ve read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it’s completely unacceptable that any women at the ‘Today’ show experienced this kind of treatment.” Couric co-hosted NBC’s “Today” show with Lauer for 15 years, but left in May 2006 to anchor “CBS Evening News.” “I had no idea this was going on during my tenure or after I left,” she continued. “I think...

    I'll bet Katie Couric never expected to get the smackdown she received on Monday morning in the pages of the New York Times, inevitably her paper of choice. But TV critic Alessandra Stanley slapped the "Mean Girl of Morning TV" hard and said in print what has been media gossip for months: that NBC is in a panic about the falling ratings of that cash cow, The Today Show. Her Cuteness is no longer the most popular girl in the crowd, with "likeability" ratings in the toilet. In fact, Katie's recent Q ratings were lower even than Dan Rather's. Remember...

    Five years before NBC axed Matt Lauer amid allegations of sexual misconduct, former "Today" show anchor Katie Couric addressed her longtime co-host's most "annoying" habit. During a June 2012 appearance on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," Couric, 60, revealed Lauer, 59, got touchy with her behind during the show's "Plead the Fifth" segment. "He pinches me on the ass a lot," Couric said.

    So just how low has Katie Couric fallen? The former co-host of the Today Show and anchor of CBS Evening News has been on a rapid career plunge recently. Her last regular gig was as Global Anchor for Yahoo!News but she left that in June.  Couric has now apparently reached the bottom of the barrel. It is impossible to see how she could go any lower than this interview session for InStyle magazine where she asks cringeworthy questions to total strangers. Among the questions posed by Couric are "Do you watch porn?" and asking the husband half of a couple from Colombia, "Have...

    Somewhere, in an alternate universe from hell, Anthony Scaramucci and Megyn Kelly are getting married in a ceremony presided over by Maxine Waters. Reince Priebus is the best man, Katie Couric is the maid of honor, and Freddie Mercury is belting out “Bohemian Rhapsody”. I’m glad I don’t live in that universe. This one is cray cray enough. I hadn’t heard this until this morning, but in addition to a) being hired to do a job for which he had no visible qualifications, b) alienating everyone in the West Wing of the White House during his first 24 hours on...
