It is a common practice in Communist regimes to define any political opposition as a medical condition and thus, in an Orwellian fashion, try to “deprogram” individuals out of their political views. This is the kind of thing Katie Couric seems to favor.
Couric is not viewed as the brightest bulb in Hollywood or New York. Her cheery rodent act played to numb liberal housewives and their help for many years. But, falling for her own press releases, Couric now thinks she is a legitimate public figure and so graces us with her partisan idiocies. Listening to the communist practice adoring airhead, one does not know whether to laugh at her inane banter or cry at her sheer lack of brainpower. Actually, we’ll just laugh at both.
FNC: “Katie Couric has spent decades on television across the three broadcast networks, but the highly-partisan remarks she made on ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’ last week could tarnish her image as an iconic, non-partisan newswoman. ‘Katie is ‘retired’ from any ‘objective’ news duties,” NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham told Fox News. ‘She has been a partisan for a long time.’ Couric, best known as the longtime co-anchor of NBC’s ‘Today’ and for a five-year run in the anchor chair on the ‘CBS Evening News,’ raised eyebrows when she blasted the GOP’s support for President Trump amid his second impeachment battle.”

Couric: “It is so shocking. … Not only are they not conceding, Bill, but their thoughts — that there might have been some collusion among members of Congress, some are refusing to go through magnetometers … to check for weapons, they’re not wearing masks during this siege…I mean, it’s really bizarre, isn’t it, when you think about how AWOL so many of these members of Congress have gotten. But I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie. And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump.”

Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson said, “Katie Couric making such offensive comments comes as no surprise, she is part of a media complex that deliberately stifled the flow of information negative to Biden in order to interfere in the election.”
The Hill columnist Joe Concha opined, “This sort of rhetoric from Couric — which comes across as so condescending and elitist — underscores the divide between our media, which primarily resides in New York and Washington, and the rest of the country, which is moderate to center-right per multiple polls. And it’s why the industry is so mistrusted and frowned upon.”
