Katie Couric on conservatives

by on November 8th, 2003

Concerning the Reagan miniseries, Katie Couric asked a few days ago if conservatives “can basically exert this kind of political pressure and create an environment where, perhaps, free speech is not exercised?”

Since when does making an editorial decision infringe upon free speech? The producers and directors of the miniseries are free to make the program in any way they wish, but CBS is also free not to air it, whether they’re thinking of advertisers or not. Too bad for Katie that she assumes free speech is only a one-way street.
