Middle East Crisis: Couric Would Go

By Brian 

On Thursday, Access Hollywood published a quote implying that Katie Couric wouldn’t travel to the Middle East. But it turns out the quote was from an interview in May, when Couric was talking about Iraq. The story has now been updated with this important clarification:

“The comments from Katie Couric that earlier ran on AccessHollywood.com were from a previous interview on May 30th in regards to whether or not she would go to Iraq in light of injured CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier. The Web site story has since been clarified and includes more recent comments that were given by Couric in regards to the current Middle East crises at the CBS TCAs (Television Critics Association). ‘Access Hollywood’ NEVER aired this story and regrets that the previous Web site story was misleading.”
