Katie Couric’s new book contains the explosive admission that she edited Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s comments on protests during the national anthem to exclude the part where the 83-year-old liberal icon said kneeling showed a “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents & grandparents to live a decent life”:
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

Keep in mind, RBG was ON THE COURT at this time:
"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.'"
She was still serving as a JUSTICE ON THE FLIPPING SUPREME COURT!!https://t.co/u8XI5Q3OV2 https://t.co/b8Ck0sUykF

So, instead of asking Ginsburg to clarify, Couric just memory-holed it?
Didn’t fit the narrative. They do this alllllll the time and then bemoan, without irony, the declining trust in the news business. https://t.co/5rbv62Upiy

But of course, she did:
I, for one, am shocked to hear Katie Couric would do something like this. https://t.co/mCvIvoY7QS

Exit question: What else aren’t they telling us?
I've said this many times when discussing media bias, but bears repeating: The big question is often not what you see they're doing, but what they're hiding from you. https://t.co/jkZNzsRyfr
