Sarah Palin Mocks Katie Couric For Leaving CBS
Taking the low road, and obviously bitter about her interview with Katie Couric, Sarah Palin decided to mock the CBS anchor upon the announcement of her departure.
Appearing on Fox News Tuesday, Palin mocked the CBS newswoman who told People Magazine she is looking forward to a new position that will facilitate “multi-dimensional storytelling.” “Yeah, and I hear that she wants to now engage in more ‘multi-dimensional story telling’ versus I guess just the ‘straight on, read into the, that teleprompter screen story telling,'” Palin said. “More power to her. I wish her well in her – ‘multi-dimensional story telling.'”
Palin is clearly unable to take a poor interview performance, now three years old, in stride.
In a series of interviews with Couric authorized by the McCain campaign, Palin stumbled over a number of questions, most memorably when asked, “When it comes to establishing your world view…what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read?”
Palin appeared unable to name a single publication — a performance for which she was much maligned — and later said she found the question insulting, as well as emblematic of a liberal slant in the mainstream media.
However, Katie Couric served as anchor of the CBS Evening News for five years. That’s twice as long as Palin kept her last full-time job. And, unlike Palin, Couric isn’t leaving in the middle of her contract.Click here for reuse options!
