I watched the clip before reading that and my first thought was how embarrassing that they don't have an answer for this.

Which is exactly what they wanted the viewers to think.

Please don't put words in my mouth. I said what I meant. Talk about twisting something to fit an agenda!

I remember a few Olympics ago when she was one of the main reporters.
She did a short segment on the air rifle competition in which she ridiculed the competitors for their not using "real guns" and in other ways.

Simple Definition of documentary
: a movie or television program that tells the facts about actual people and events
Documentary | Definition of Documentary by Merriam-Webster
I mean, have you ever watched a documentary?

There is always bias be it a documentary about drugs, racism, homophobia, the way we eat, etc.

Katie Couric hasn't been relevant in over a decade and is having a hard time dealing with it.

She failed as an anchor, she failed with the talk show.

At this point expect her to go back to morning TV.

Katie Couric has never really been a legitimate news reporter. She should have stayed as co-anchor on the Today show giving interviews to pop stars, commenting on fashion trends, and updating the viewers on the Kardashian's and "Dancing with the Stars".
