  • Katie Couric has admitted to editing out Ruth Bader Ginsburg's controversial comments from her 2016 sit-down with the late Supreme Court Justice 
  • Couric writes that she was faced with a 'conundrum' while working on the story for Yahoo! News, in her scathing new memoir, Going There, released October 26
  • The former Today show host reveals Ginsburg responded negatively when asked about people who kneel for the national anthem as a protest against racism
  • The published story did include quotes from the justice calling the gesture 'dumb and disrespectful' but omitted more controversial remarks
  • Ginsburg had also said that such protests showed 'contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life' 
  • '...which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from...as they became older they realize that this was youthful folly,' she added
  • Couric claims that Ginsburg, who was 83 at the time, was 'elderly and probably didn't fully understand the question'
