Katie Couric strikes again

Print Post  
From Dutch News:

Quote:
The Dutch have been taking great delight in teasing American broadcaster Katie Couric for sharing her theory of why the Dutch are so good at speed skating – although she is not the first to suggest that the Dutch skate to work in winter.

During her commentary as the Dutch team entered the stadium at the opening ceremony of the Olympic games in Pyeongchang, Couric said the Dutch had won so many medals on the speed skating oval because ‘skating is an important mode of transportation in a city like Amsterdam which sits at sea level.’ ‘As you all know, it has lots of canals that can freeze in the winters,’ Couric continued. ‘So, for as long as those canals have existed, the Dutch have skated on them to get from place to place, to race each other, and also to have fun.’

Couric’s comments have been widely shredded by the skating mad Dutch, who last got to skate on the Amsterdam canals in 2012.

I'm not so sure she even read the article she linked.



She's admitted that she isn't informed and sees no reason to change..

Nice pictures, Fiddles. Do you think they were all skating to work? Maybe to a dinner party? Or maybe they were skating to a sporting event?

Maybe you missed the part where Couric claimed that for the Dutch "skating is an important mode of transportation in a city like Amsterdam."

But I'm sure Couric was actually correct when she...OH WAIT, SHE HAD TO APOLOGIZE!

Quote:
NBC’s Katie Couric has apologized for suggesting Olympians from the Netherlands excel at ice skating because the Dutch skate to work every day — as the nation’s US embassy took her to task over the ridiculous claim.

“My apologies for being on thin ice for my comments re: skating on canals. I was trying to salute your historical passion for the sport but it didn’t come out that way!” she tweeted Monday night.

Couric said during Friday night’s opening ceremony that the Netherlands “has lots of canals that can freeze in the winter. So for as long as those canals have existed, the Dutch have skated on them to get from place to place, to race each other and also to have fun.”

A flood of criticism ensued.

“Dear @katiecouric, the Dutch do NOT skate to work. Skating on clogs is too hard, even for us,” chided Twitter user Gert van Dijk.

“You just can’t make this up,” tweeted Jos Duijvestein. “NBC opening ceremony coverage. Katie Couric talks about why The Netherlands is so good at speed skating as The Netherlands enters the stadium. And this folks is why Americans are less bright about the rest of the world as they spread fake news!”

She issued her mea culpa after the Dutch embassy threw her some social media shade.

“Hi @katiecouric, please come visit the Netherlands. We’d love to show you all the innovative ways the Dutch get around 🚴🚘⚡🚊🚄🛥, & are building the future of transportation. Of course, we can also visit our famous skating rinks. Let’s break the ice!,” the account tweeted.


You libs are so silly.
