Katie, Perky as Ever, Quotes Republican Talking Points




Watch it here.

I just sent the following e-mail to david.mccormick@nbc.com. It was fun and easy:
Dear Mr. McCormick:

On this morning's Today Show, Katie Couric had the following exchange with Howard Dean:
Katie: Hey, wait a second. Democrats took-Democrats took money from Abramoff too, Mr. Dean.

Howard: That is absolutely false. That did not happen. Not one dime of money from Jack Abramoff went to any Democrat at any time.

Katie: According to the CRP, Abramoff and his associates gave 3 million dollars to republicans and 1.5 million to democrats...

Howard: Not-one-dime.

Katie: We'll obviously have to look into that and clarify that to our viewers at a later date
...
I am writing you to make sure that you do, indeed, look into this and clarify it to your viewers immediately. All you have to do is go here:

Then, type in "Abramoff" and check off the appropriate election cycles. You'll have all of the clarification you need.

I expect to see a personal apology from Katie on tomorrow's show.

Thank you.
Thanks to firedoglake and Suburban Guerilla for the suggestion.
