Times Change…People Don’t: A Ten Commandments’ Tale

Noah was a righteous man he was perfect in his generations; Noah walked with God.

genesis 6:9

people grown up in their era, their time, and their values.

noah’s story best illustrates this concept. noah, in his time, was humanity’s best. noah’s righteousness, however, may not compare well with the righteousness of future generations. as the story unfolds, post flood, noah becomes essentially a naked drunk.

the torah is not concerned with vanity. the ugly truth is better than beautiful lies. noah is to be appreciated for being an obedient man who took on a monumental task. he lived in a time of human depravity on the precipice of destruction.

each generation involves change. language is a big part of this change. so are attitudes. words considered proper in one generation become offensive to the next. front pages of newspapers during world war ii describe japanese in a way that is highly offensive today.

when multiple generations of families get together, there are times when the elderly use words that make later generations cringe. at these events, you can hear “grandma, we don’t use that word anymore” from the grandchildren.

as words change, so do attitudes. a generation filled with patriotism may hold strong believes in supporting a country while a generation filled with shame and distrust of government may be anti-authority. one government administration may foster love for the country and others not so much.

katie couric admitted to editing a supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg’s interview to cut out her opinion concerning kneeling for the national anthem. dailymail justice ginsburg came off as patriotic and pro-national anthem. she, as an american from a minority group, rose to reach the highest office in the land she could have dreamed of having. it is quite understandable that she would have affinity towards her country.

couric edited her pro-america statement as she ‘wanted to protect’ ginsburg and felt that the issue of racial justice was a ‘blind spot’ for her. she thought the justice, who was 83 at the time, was ‘elderly and probably didn’t fully understand the question.’

katie couric “woke washed” the justice.

justice ginsburg, for the woke, has a more troubling past than kneeling at the national justice ginsburg, per haaretz, had an affinity towards israel. she, raised in an orthodox family, traveled to israel five times and was awarded a lifetime achievement award from the genesis prize foundation. in contrast, natalie portman, an actress from a younger generation, declined the award for political reasons.

would katie couric have edited this information from justice ginsburg’s biography to protect legacy. support of israel is also something that may bring an individual in the cross-hairs of cancellation. perhaps, justice ginsburg would be deeply offended if she did so. she had some connection to the state.

respect and admiration is not a one side of the aisle affair. even those who were not fans of the justice’s opinions have much admiration for her as a life force. she is someone who is to be admired for fighting cancer and continuing with her occupation that she loved. she, along with her beloved fitness trainer,  mr. bryant johnson, an army reservist, for whom she had a 20 year relationship with, perhaps inspired many of the benefits of a good workout for those sick and elderly. cbsnews.com for this, justice ginsburg transcended politics and provided inspiration on how one should live their life.

in sum, an argument can be made that ms. couric was not protecting justice ginsburg. in contrast, her actions were “protecting her viewers” from knowing and appreciating the true depth and opinions of an american legend. certainly, they are in desparate need to experience some cognitive dissonance.

be well!!

Katie Couric has admitted to ‘protecting’ Ruth Bader Ginsburg from public backlash by cutting out negative comments she made about people who kneel during the national anthem. 

The former Today show host reveals in her new book that she let her personal political views influence her editing decisions after her interview with the late Supreme Court justice in 2016. 

In new memoir, Going There, Couric writes that she edited out a part where Ginsburg said that those who kneel during the national anthem are showing ‘contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.’ https://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.485.1_en.html#goog_2070739495Dailymail.co.uk: News, Sport, Showbiz, Celebrities from Daily MailPauseNext video0:00 / 0:00Full-screenRead More

The published story, which Couric wrote for Yahoo! News in 2016, did include quotes from Ginsburg saying refusing to stand for the anthem was ‘dumb and disrespectful’, but omitted more problematic remarks. In her new memoir, Katie Couric admits to editing out Ruth Bader Ginsburg's controversial comments from their 2016 interview (pictured) to 'protect' the late Supreme Court Justice+6

But Couric writes in her memoir that she thought the justice, who was 83 at the time, was ‘elderly and probably didn’t fully understand the question.’

The anecdote is the latest controversial revelation to emerge from Couric’s book, which is set to be released October 26. 

DailyMail.com previously revealed how the veteran news anchor brutally rips into her former colleagues, ex-boyfriends, and celebrities in the score-settling tome, which runs to 500 pages.

Couric, 64, writes that she always tried to keep her ‘personal politics’ out of her reporting throughout her career. Going There will be available on October 26+6

But she faced a ‘conundrum’ when Ginsburg made comments about Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL player who became the controversial figurehead behind the national anthem protest against racial injustice. 

Couric felt that when Ginsburg said that people like Kaepernick were ‘dumb and disrespectful’ they were comments that were ‘unworthy of a crusader for equality’ like the liberal Supreme Court justice. 

The day after the sit-down, the head of public affairs for the Supreme Court emailed Couric to say the late justice had ‘misspoken’ and asked that it be removed from the story.

Couric writes that she was ‘conflicted’ because she was a ‘big RBG fan’, referring to Ginsburg’s moniker.

Couric called a friend, David Brooks, a New York Times journalist, who advised her that Ginsburg probably didn’t understand the question, even though she was still serving on the Supreme Court at the time.

However David Westin, the former head of ABC News, advised Couric to keep it in. 

‘She’s on the Supreme Court. People should hear what she thinks,’ he said, according to Couric. 

The final version of the story, which meant to promote a compilation of Ginsburg’s writings called, My Own Words, included her criticism of ‘stupid’ and ‘arrogant’ protesters. Katie Couric rips colleagues and celebrities in memoirLoaded: 0%Progress: 0%0:00PreviousPlaySkipMuteCurrent Time0:00/Duration Time2:20FullscreenNeed TextFormer NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick came under fire in 2016 for refusing to stand for the national anthem at the start of football games in protest against racial injustice+6

But what was left out was arguably more inflammatory.

Ginsburg went on to say that such protests show a ‘contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.’

She said: ‘Which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from…as they became older they realize that this was youthful folly. And that’s why education is important.’

Couric claims that she ‘lost a lot of sleep over this one’ and still wrestles with the decision she made.

According to Couric, she ‘wanted to protect’ Ginsburg and felt that the issue of racial justice was a ‘blind spot’ for her.

Ginsburg, who died last September at age 87, was asked for her thoughts after former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick came under fire in 2016 for taking a knee at the start of NFL games in protest against racial injustice.

‘Would I arrest them for doing it? No,’ she told Couric. ‘I think it’s dumb and disrespectful. I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. 

‘I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.’ 

When Couric pushed further asking if she believes athletes are ‘within their rights to exercise those actions’, Ginsburg replied: ‘Yes. If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. 

‘If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that,’ she added.  Ginsburg, who died last September at age 87, was among the left-leaning justices on the Supreme Court+6

DailyMail.com earlier revealed other eyebrow-raising confessions Couric makes in her book, including how she gave Ashleigh Banfield, the former CNN presenter, the cold shoulder at NBC because helping her would be ‘self sabotage.’  

Couric also slams Deborah Norville, who she replaced on NBC’s Today show, for having a ‘relentless perfection’ which turned off breakfast show viewers.

Couric is just as blunt about her love life and says ex-boyfriend Brooks Perlin, who was 17 years her junior, was a ‘mid-life crisis’ while TV producer Tom Werner was a ‘textbook narcissist’.

Couric puts down Martha Stewart and says that it took a ‘few years in prison for her to develop a sense of humor.’

Even the Royal family end up in Couric’s sights and she describes how Prince Harry reeked of cigarettes and alcohol when they met, and how Prince Andrew cozied up to Jeffrey Epstein at a bizarre dinner at his New York mansion.

Couric claimed that her former nanny, who she calls ‘Doris’ in the book, was creepy and needy and that she fired her for spreading gossip about her first husband.

MEGHAN MCCAIN: Katie Couric is the poster girl for America’s hypocritical, biased mainstream media who will even censor a feminist icon like RBG if she dares question their liberal beliefs

I will be thirty-seven in a week. When I was young and first coming up in the media industry, I very naively believed that the archaic days of sexism keeping other women down was something of the past – a 70s and 80s throwback to when women were forced to wear pantyhose to work.

Very quickly, as all women in my generation (and after) would learn, I came to realize that sexism in the workforce is alive and well and thriving in the United States of America.

And in my experience, some of the worst offenders are women to other women.

The generations before mine have created, fostered and enabled a long line of toxic behavior towards the generations of women coming up behind them.

Now, this may be an obvious statement to any woman who has been in the workforce since the industrial revolution but it doesn’t make it less shocking when an extremely famous and once-powerful former news anchor such as Katie Couric writes what is – I can only believe at this point from every headline I have read – nothing short of a kamikaze mission to destroy what is left of the carcass of her career.Infamous mean girl Katie Couric has now admitted to leaving out a 'damaging' part of an interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg where the former Supreme Court justice and left-wing icon admits to not liking those who kneel before rather than salute our American flag.

How can there be any expectation of trust between anyone with an opinion to the right of Ruth Bader Ginsburg if interviewers and their networks believe editing out commentary they believe would hurt a progressive icon is an ethical thing to do? I can assure you, Katie Couric would have afforded no conservative woman any such mercy

Every new revelation to come out gets weirder and grosser than the last. Let’s start with her admission that she felt threatened by Ashleigh Banfield – someone I know and can say has never been anything short of lovely and kind to me and has that reputation in our industry.

Katie Couric admitted to ostensibly derailing her career because she was threatened by, in her words ‘someone younger and cuter around the corner’.

Even if this is something she felt and acted on, writing about it in such a way in her memoir is bizarre. It actually hurts my heart to think of the place Ashleigh Banfield could be at on network television today if it weren’t for Katie Couric.

But that is not the worst of her sins, contemptible as it is.

Now, I have an admission. I don’t like Katie Couric, I haven’t liked Katie Couric since she interviewed Sarah Palin. I know the backstory and lived in real time the process of what has now become one of the more notorious trainwreck interviews in political history.

But she was being interviewed by an infamous mean girl who has now admitted to leaving out a ‘damaging’ part of an interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg where the former Supreme Court justice and left-wing icon admits to not liking those who kneel before rather than salute our American flag.

And if we now know for a fact that if Katie Couric edited her interviews to make famous liberals look good, one can only imagine and speculate about what she might possibly have done to make conservatives look bad.

One of my favorite adages is ‘Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they aren’t after you’. And this particular admission has hit me like a slap in the face.

The mainstream media is already a biased, hostile and awful space for conservatives. Both for those who appear in it and for those who read and watch it, who are constantly gas-lit into feeling bad about their perfectly decent beliefs.

If you are hesitant about the vaccine, you are a selfish, superstitious redneck who doesn’t care who they kill.

If you don’t want your children taught Critical Race Theory in school, you are a domestic terrorist.The only thing I can hope for in the future is that the journalists and hosts coming up behind Katie Couric see the damage she has done, both in the workplace to female colleagues and, outside towards women who think differently from her.

If you vote Republican, you are an enemy of democracy and progress, if not an outright racist.

We all know it, we all feel it and now our paranoia has once again been justified.

We now have one of the most famous journalists in America admitting to rigging her interviews to make Ruth Bader Ginsburg look ‘better’ in the eyes of liberals.

How many other interviews did she rig or manipulate during her long, storied career? And why did her network allow it to air in such a fashion?Going There will be available on October 26+5

She wasn’t a one-woman band, there must have been a lot of people who enabled Katie Couric’s behavior and unethical journalistic practices. Where is the justice and consequences for them?

There has been almost constant talk and speculation about the breakdown of trust between Americans and our media. Katie Couric is one of the smoking guns.

How can there be any expectation of trust between anyone with an opinion to the right of Ruth Bader Ginsburg if interviewers and their networks believe editing out commentary they believe would hurt a progressive icon is an ethical thing to do?

I can assure you, Katie Couric would have afforded no conservative woman any such mercy.

This revelation is another hit on the already limping industry that is the overwhelmingly liberal US mainstream media.

It likes to think it is morally superior but is in reality as mean, selfish and distorting as it accuses what little right-wing media there is in this country of being.

Katie Couric should be its patron saint.
