Once upon a time, in a land that no longer exists, there was a thing called “an unbiased press.” What that meant was that the press would report fairly and honestly about any and all newsworthy events. In that way, the citizens of the land that no longer exists could read an unbiased account of what went on, then make up their own minds about how they felt about it.
It was a matter of honor back in those days, for the press to report factual information to the public. They felt that it was their duty to be apart from the news. They believed with all of their being that only by staying apart could they honestly and fairly report events.
That land that no longer exists is gone in part because people like Katie Couric, a pseudo-news person, felt that is was her business to make personal comments about political figures. It was a sad day when she opened her mouth and failed miserably at what should have been her job.
There were those people who said that Katie Couric was just a talking head, that all she did was read what was written down for her. There were others who said that she got all cock-sure because she had one good moment in an interview. But most people understood that Katie could feel herself on the downhill slide that comes for all female talking heads when they aren’t as cute and sassy as they used to be, and she needed to BE the news more than she needed to REPORT the news.
As a result of people like Katie Couric and her ilk, the land that no longer exists fell. It used to be a great land. It used to be a brave land. It used to be a strong land. Now you have to be careful who you listen to because even the “fair press” has an agenda.
Katie Couric- STFU. Either BE a reporter, or be something else and then run your mouth. Stop trying to make yourself feel younger and cuter by spouting off like a twit, when it’s supposed to be your job to “report” the news. The press is supposed to hold themselves to a higher standard. Go join the National Enquirer if you want to act like that.
