CNN’s Brian Stelter and the Washington Post’s Robert Costa reprimanded Katie Couric for her admission that she covered up controversial comments from the late Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

During a conversation on Sunday for Reliable Sources, Stelter and Costa focused on Couric’s upcoming memoir, Going There.

The book has drawn a great deal of attention over an excerpt in which Couric revealed she moved to “protect” Ginsburg by not publishing left-leaning justice’s negative opinion for people who kneel for the national anthem to protest racial injustice.

Stelter broke down Couric’s handling of the situation and determined that “she omitted a key part of the interview with a Supreme Court justice.” Asked for his opinion, Costa said it reminded him about how the Post tried to publish transcripts of their interviews during the Donald Trump presidency in order to provide as much information and context as possible to back up their reporting.

“When you’re dealing with people in power at the highest positions, whether it’s a president or a member of the Supreme Court, readers, citizens deserve to have as much information as possible,” Costa said. “Couric, as a reporter or journalist, can decide how she edits a package together, but when it’s done in a way and important as a Supreme Court justice, people deserve to know what was said.”

Stelter followed up by saying Couric’s decision “contributes to a decline in trust in media.”

“When she admits years later she basically covered something up — even if she says I don’t know if I did the right thing and I’m wrestling with it and trying to be transparent now — it contributes to a lack of trust in media,” Stelter said. He acknowledged that Couric made her decision after a Supreme Court press aide asked her to not run that part of the interview, but “that’s more reason to run it, more reason to think its newsworthy.”

Fox Friends Calls Out CNNs Don Lemon for Doing Actual Reporting on Jussie Smollet Story

Fox & Friends took issue with recently revealed texts between CNN anchor Don Lemon and actor Jussie Smollet.

The actor is currently on trial for faking a politically and racially charged attack as a means to draw attention to himself, and during court proceedings, texts between the two came out, the story of which was breathlessly teased by Steve Doocy “Why was CNN anchor Don Lemon texting Jussie Smollett about his alleged hate crime case?”

Todd Piro later reported the news, saying “The actor also revealing that CNN’s Don Lemon texting him allegedly relaying information that police did not believe Smollett’s account of what happened. Lemon telling viewers after the 2019 incident that he was in close contact with the actor.”

Piro also noted that “Don Lemon covered the case on his show last night but made no mention of the alleged contact he had with Smollett.”

“From a legal perspective did Don Lemon do anything wrong?” asked Ainsley Earhardt. “If you are trying to get an interview you might send a text, especially if you are acquaintances.”

“I don’t know about the legal perspective,” Piro answered. “But again this would go back to the whole CNN journalistic questions, should we be helping the people cover overtly like CNN does seemingly with Chris Cuomo and now Don Lemon.”

Yes, that’s a news guy on Fox & Friends throwing journalistic shade on CNN by asking “should we be helping the people cover?” Of course, Chris Cuomo has been fired by CNN, and Lemon’s texting with an acquaintance of his that’s in the news, a fact of which, according to Fox News, he disclosed on air at the time of reporting?

First of all, texting a subject who is in the news is how a lot of reporting gets done. If an anchor is trying to prepare someone for an interview or get them on their show, it is entirely expected to exchange information about the story, which in this instance appears to be the fact that the police didn’t believe his story.

It’s not clear when Smullett and Lemon texted about this development in the story, but it was a widely believed conceit within roughly a week of the story breaking.
