Longtime Today host and CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric is releasing a memoir later this month, and it’s making quite the splash.
Among the guests for the tour, which kicks off October 28 in Boston: Jennifer Garner, Brad and Kimberly Paisley, Tan France, Ina Garten, Chance the Rapper, and Savannah Guthrie.
The tour, however, isn’t the only aspect of the book grabbing headlines.
Media outlets, including the Los Angeles Times, are sharing the revelation that Couric edited some controversial remarks from the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg to “protect” the Supreme Court justice.
In the 2016 interview, Ginsburg called national anthem protests “dumb and disrespectful,” which Couric included in the segment.
But the justice also went on to say that the protests showed “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life,” something that Couric excluded.
Unsurprisingly for a celebrity memoir, this isn’t the only juicy revelation about other famous figures; Axios shares a few other choice tidbits about big names from Going There.
