Couric's ratings don't lie

Katy Couric opened her yap in front of a bunch of other members of the press and said things that are revealing in more ways than one.

Couric was crystal-clear on both topics during a Tuesday-night seminar on "Democracy and the Press" at the National Press Club in Washington.

"Everyone in this room would agree that people in this country were misled in terms of the rationale for this war," Couric said, according to a report in the Washington Examiner.

"I've never understood why [invading Iraq] was so high on the administration's agenda when terrorism was going on in Afghanistan and Pakistan - and that [Iraq] had no true connection with al Qaeda," she said.

"The whole culture of wearing flags on our lapel and saying 'we' when referring to the United States and, even the 'shock and awe' of the initial stages, it was just too jubilant and just a little uncomfortable." (emphasis mine)
She reveals three things in this idiotic flow of thoughts.

Everyone in this room would agree.
Perhaps the most damning of all is the idea that a consensus of any sort exists on a topic which is still quite controversial amongst the "rest" of us in this nation. Then again, it shouldn't be surprising considering that the citizens of the United States are force fed ignorant drivel by the press all the time. Perhaps all reporters do agree that "Bush lied, people died"; if so, it gives everyone else all the more reason to mistrust their intentions and their statements.

[Iraq] had no true connection with al Qaeda.
This has been shown to be utterly and completely false. Even the One, Hillary Clinton, said:
[Saddam Hussein] has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members, though there is apparently no evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11, 2001.
Couric and her media buddies have been peddling these lies for a long time. Again, as I find myself often saying to liberals, repeating or wishing for something doesn't make it true.

...saying 'we' when referring to the United States... was just a little uncomfortable.
Doesn't that just say it all?
