Katie Couric hypocrisy watch

From the speech she gave to Princeton on “Class Day” – June 1st:

Next, don’t be a hater. Princeton has taught you to think critically, to approach things with a healthy dose of skepticism…and that’s a good thing, as Martha Stewart would say. But you really must guard against the cynicism and nastiness that are so pervasive today, particularly on the internet. It can be a wonderful, powerful and equalizing tool, but it’s also populated by haters and trolls. People think they can say or do anything online under the cloak of anonymity. Don’t get sucked in…In his book, entitled “Snark”, David Denby writes, “Snark often functions as an enforcer of mediocrity and conformity. In its cozy knowingness, snark flatters you in assuming that you get the contemptuous joke. You’ve been admitted or re-admitted to a club, but it may be a club of the second rate.”

But peppered throughout her speech ….

I’m sure you don’t need a newsflash that getting a job is no stroll down Nassau Street. I read a study recently that said only 20 percent of graduates who’ve applied for jobs have one right now. That’s down from 51 percent in 2007. In this economic climate, graduates of the Wilson School might actually have to get a job in Government!

There may be some opportunities in the Republican Party. They’re still looking for an effective spokesman, and the only person they can find so far is Rush Limbaugh….and he won’t take the job because he doesn’t want to give up his prescription plan.


After all, a Latina has just been nominated to the Supreme Court…only the third woman in history. And I heard she graduated summa cum laude from a little school in New Jersey! Hillary Clinton was the first serious female presidential candidate and made 18 million cracks in the ultimate glass ceiling. And then of course, there’s Carrie Prejean, Miss California. No one has done more to motivate gay rights activists since Anita Bryant.


And I understand Class of 54’s Donald Rumsfeld has been charged with guarding the Big Cannon.

I don’t want to say he’s taking his job too far, but he’s reportedly been telling President Obama there are Weapons of Mass Destruction hidden at Rutgers.

And on “Class Day,” a lady named Katie proved to be quite full of hate-y.

Wed AM Update: CNS is reporting on Katie’s hypocrisy as well.
