In a 2016 interview, Katie Curick admitted that Ruth Bader hid Ginsburg’s harshest words about kneeling during the national anthem.
The editorial was made in order to “protect” the justice of the deceased in the Supreme Court, Couric writes in his post. In his October 26 book, Going There, Ginsburg, 83, thought during an interview that he may not have fully understood what Couric was asking, the Daily Mail reported.
“He was old and may not have understood the question,” Kurik wrote in a 500-page biography of the burnt land, explaining that his colleagues, ex-boyfriend or acquaintances were not safe from the ruthless reckoning of the former Today host.
Interview published by Yahoo! Ginsburg reportedly said he considered it “stupid and disrespectful” not to stand as a protester during the national anthem, but that did not include a strong condemnation of his actions.
Not going to the anthem “shows disrespect to the government that allowed their parents and grandparents to live a decent life … they probably couldn’t live where they came from … when they get older, they realize it” was the stupidity of that youth. And that’s why education is important, ”Ginsburg told Couric at the time. “I think it’s a terrible thing, but I wouldn’t imprison the person who did it. I would say how ridiculous it seems to me to do that.”
Kurik, who was a “big RBG fan” and felt protected, and the comments probably caused him controversy, wrote in the book that he “lost a lot of sleep” and decided whether to add it or not. felt “contradictory.” Ginsburg’s full views on the subject.
Also a day after the interview, the head of the Supreme Court’s public relations department told Couric in an email that Ginsburg had “spoken wrong” and asked him to remove his comments on the matter from that section. In the end, Couric basically did as they demanded.
