It seems Katy’s recent comments, supporting the idea that Trumpers need to be reprogrammed, might just cost her big time.
In fact, Jeopardy producers feel she might be too polarizing for the job.
Good call Jeopardy. I’d hate to see you among the many casualties of TV land leftism.
As Fox News explains:
Last week, Couric appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher” where she spent much of the show trashing President Trump in his final days in office. But what made headlines were her comments about Trump’s backers on Capitol Hill who fueled the former president’s election challenge.
“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,” Couric began.
“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.”
Shame on America!
How dare Trump supporters demand answers. At least, that’s the liberal mindset, and in the end, that is what destroys America. Because we’ve stopped listening to the people. This isn’t some small subset of the population. Trump supporters are the majority. In fact, the internet is littered with memes because “we the people” are confused as hell right now.
These aren’t photoshopped images. How do we know? Because we were there. I’ve talked to people from Texas, Louisiana, Arizona, Georgia, California, and several other states. The Trump Rally phenomenon wasn’t limited to one small corner of the country.
Considering the stark difference in fanfare, Couric should be asking “what happened?” I mean, at least Hillary tried to figure out how she lost. Instead of investigating, which leftists love to do, Couric jumps to condemn conservatives. That’s why people like Couric are a disease in American culture.
Couric has been a journalist since 1979. I wasn’t even in Pre-school yet, so to think she’s spent her entire life in this field should give her a great deal of clout. In fact, I remember when she made headlines as the first female solo anchor of a weekday network evening news broadcast in 2006 on CBS News. I celebrated her accomplishment.
But journalism is about telling the stories. It’s not about creating them. And somewhere on her journey, Couric lost her sense of purpose. There’s literally no other explanation for her comments.
Career in Jeopardy
There was a time when such skewed opinions wouldn’t be shared publicly by someone who wants to maintain a profile as a neutral observer. But those days are long gone. Today’s media seeks to control the narrative. And Couric’s narrative clearly states all Trumpers are psychotic, blind followers of a strange cult no one seems to understand.
But, now her opinionated rant put her career in Jeopardy. Well, at least on the popular game show.
Now, the New York Post’s “Page Six” is reporting that folks behind the scenes at “Jeopardy!” were “immediately worried” about her comments.
Page Six reports that, according to a source, the “Jeopardy” audience is “very conservative” and the game show had “always steered clear of politics.”
“Katie’s comments so soon after she was announced as a host are very concerning to the producers. They are worried there will be a backlash against her. There has already been some complaints,” the source told Page Six.
“Jeopardy viewers are quite a traditional bunch, and there’s fears she might be too polarizing after this. At the very least, she already appears to have ruled herself out of becoming the permanent host of the show,” the source continued.
Sony Pictures and representatives for Couric did not immediately respond to Fox News’ requests for comment.
Couric has been facing intense backlash for suggesting that the GOP needs to be “deprogrammed” because of its support for President Trump.
“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,” The Hill columnist and Fox News contributor Joe Concha told Fox News.
Couric was tapped as one of several celebrity guest hosts to fill in on “Jeopardy!” following the Nov. 8 death of longtime host Alex Trebek. Others set to guest host include “Jeopardy!” champion Ken Jennings, actress Mayim Bialik, and NFL superstar Aaron Rodgers.
To be honest, I’m a little sad to know Couric is so deeply planted in leftism.
And I’m more than pissed to know she’d even go along with this idea of “reprogramming conservatives.” But, after everything I’ve seen the past four years, nothing should surprise us anymore.
