The leak of a behind-the-scenes CBS News satellite feed may add fuel to the feud between CBS News anchorwoman Katie Couric and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the clip shows Couric making fun of Palin’s childrens’ names, reports the New York Post.
The video was shot in September 2008 (to see it, click here) and shows Couric rehearsing a report on Palin on the day she was chosen as John McCain’s running mate, the story says. In the middle of reading a line about two of Palin’s children, Track and Trig, Couric veers off script to say, "Where the hell do they get these [names]?" the story says. Couric later has to check on the pronunciation of Wasilla, Palin’s hometown. When asked about the video, a CBS News representative said, "It must be a very slow news day," the article says.
