This is going to leave a mark. Katie Couric tweets:

How in 35 years of journalism w/a degree in “American studies” did @katiecouric not encounter this word before? pic.twitter.com/pdDwjccauE

.@katiecouric Good lord. You’re a major journalist that ignorant of words common to half the country?

Good questions.

@katiecouric @moderncomments Here’s another new one for you – immanentize. Put ’em together, see what you get.

Better to be thought a fool, than to tweet and remove all doubt. RT @katiecouric: @Olivianuzziyes it’s a big problem.

Until today, @katiecouric thought this was eschatology. pic.twitter.com/rOFQhcgZGt

And more than one Tweeter linked Couric’s inane question tonight with her questioning of Sarah Palin in the 2008 election:

Someone should interview Katie Couric and ask her what newspapers and magazines she reads

Boy howdy, that Sarah Palin sure is dumb! @katiecouric: Be4 I sign off learned a new word in church today: Eschatology. Anyone?

I bet Sarah Palin knows what it means.

Listening to “journalists” like Couric on any topic makes as much sense as listening to former playboy models discourse upon vaccinations.
