Former longtime CBS News anchor Katie Couric is now facing backlash after revealing in her new memoir that she deceptively edited an interview with the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to remove a portion in which she vehemently criticized individuals like Colin Kaepernick who engaged in kneeling protests against the US national anthem.

As Fox News reports:

In her tell-all memoir “Going There,” Couric detailed how Ginsburg was critical of national anthem kneelers in the midst of the furor over former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to take a knee to protest police brutality. Several other professional athletes began to take his lead and kneel instead of standing during the anthem.

Ginsburg told Couric she was opposed to the action, saying those who kneel during the anthem were showing “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life,” according to new reporting by the Daily Mail.

Couric wrote she wanted to “protect” Ginsburg, who died last year, and also suggested Ginsburg’s office had some influence on the final product, according to the Mail.
Commenters are Twitter were quick to condemn Couric and CBS for her deceptive practices:
