Palin Reacts to Couric Departure



Text  



Sarah Palin hasn’t changed her attitude toward departing CBS anchor Katie Couric.

Talking about Couric’s departure with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren Tuesday night, Palin said, “I think I read that in a newspaper, one of many newspapers that I read on line.”

Palin stumbled when Couric asked her in a 2008 interview when asked what newspapers she read. In a 2010 ABC interview, Palin commented that it was “one of those questions where I like to turn that around and ask the reporters, ‘Why would it be that there is that perception that I don’t read?’”

Palin also took a swipe at Couric’s journalism skills.

“I hear that she wants to now engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling, versus, I guess, just the straight-on read into that teleprompter screen storytelling,” Palin said. “So more power to her.”
