Couric, "Breaking the Law is How This White House Operates."


Nice of Katie and Chris to convict the Bush Administration before an investigation has even wrapped up and before any indictments have been handed out!

Katie Couric and Chris Matthews team up to pass on propaganda as morning news in this obscene segment on the “Today Show”.

The context was Couric’s interview of Chris Matthews on the subject of the investigation by special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald into possible leaks in the Valerie Plame affair.

Matthews was hostile enough, musing whether the Bush administration “in defending themselves against the charge we went to war for a corrupt or bogus reason, that there wasn’t any weaponry, a deal with nuclear weapons, did they break the law?”

But even that was insufficiently venomous for Katie’s taste. She cut Matthews off peremptorily, interjecting:

“Yeah, and Chris isn’t it more than just Iraq, doesn’t it speak about the way this White House possibly operates” risibly seeking to distance herself from what was clearly her own notion by tacking on at the end of her question “in the minds of some?”

Matthews, perhaps shocked at the scope of Couric’s charge, turned the matter back to the specific question at hand – whether the Bush administration, in seeking to discredit Joe Wilson, broke the law.

But just in case there were any doubts, now we know: Katie Couric, the most widely-watched, most powerful morning talk show host in America, views President Bush as heading a rogue administration whose modus operandi is to break the law. Stunning.

Katie leaves the interview with “Thanks Chris for clearing this up for all of us!”
