RBG 2016 Interview Heavily Edited to ‘Protect’ Supreme Court Justice

In 2016, Katie Couric interviewed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

It now appears as though Couric saved the best part of the interview for her book, “Going There.”

In her book, Couric admits to editing out several statements made by the late Justice to protect her.

Mainstream Media Censorship

If you recall, 2016 was when the whole anthem kneeling thing started with then-49er QB Colin Kaepernick.

During her interview with Ginsburg, Couric brought up the protests, but she apparently did not get the answer she expected.

When Ginsburg ridiculed the idea of protesting the anthem, even calling the behavior “stupid,” Couric decided to edit out even more inflammatory comments to “protect” the Supreme Court Justice from backlash.

Ginsburg also stated that she opposed the protesters who were showing “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life,” but she conceded she would support their right to do so.

Couric stated that she was “conflicted” about making the edits, but she was a “big RGB fan,” so the edits were made.

The news of the edits was not received well by journalists on both sides of the aisle.

New York Times’ Maggie Haberman stated, “This is toxic on a lot of levels.”

Reporter Ben Jacobs stated, “I too always like to omit the most newsworthy and interesting parts from all my interviews with important and powerful people.”

The Daily Mail’s Meghan McCain stated, “This is not the role of a journalist.”

She continued, “You can’t complain about distrust in the media when one of the most famous interviewers admits to rigging interviews to make liberals look good.

“I now have even more questions about her ethics in regards to interviewing conservatives.”

Media Research Center’s Jorge Bonilla stated, “The galaxy-level arrogance it must’ve taken to think that RBG needed protection from herself.”

Fox News breaks it all down in the video below…

I am not sure what Couric hoped to gain with this reveal.

Perhaps she thought the liberal horde would hold her up as a hero for protecting RBG.

If that was her intent, then why the big reveal now when it does nothing but tarnish the legacy of the Justice.

More importantly, as influential as RGB was with the left, could this have possibly changed the narrative the entire country faced at the time?

Let’s not forget many of the racist allegations against Trump came from this particular protest, yet it turns out the most prominent hero liberals had was on the same page as Trump.

Does that make her a racist too?

If this was hidden, we can only imagine what else was left on the editing room floor of major interviews by the leftist-oriented mainstream media in this country over the last five or six years.
