edwards-60.jpgcouric-edwards.jpg Isn't it nice that Couric asks all the questions Limbaugh and conservative critics have been attacking them with? I guess it's fine as long as she masks them as if she's being a compassionate journalist. Couric should at least have the guts to tell her audience who is actually criticizing them.

Katie Couric: Your decision to stay in this race has been analyzed, and quite frankly judged by a lot of people. And some say, what you're doing is courageous, others say it's callous. Some say, "Isn't it wonderful they care for something greater than themselves?" And others say, "It's a case of insatiable ambition." You say?

Katie Couric: Some people watching this would say, "I would put my family first always, and my job second." And you're doing the exact opposite. You're putting your work first, and your family second.

Who is saying it's callous, Katie? Rush Limbaugh is one....CBS has the full transcript and video... Jane has been documenting other concerned trolls that seem to think it's fine to tell the Edwards how they should run their lives knowing that Elizabeth has cancer

Remember her interview with MJ Fox?

UPDATE: Taylor Marsh and David Sirota give their takes on the interview.
