In the first joint interview with Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin, CBS’s Katie Couric asked the duo about Palin’s answer to a question by a voter in Philadelphia on Saturday, which seemed to echo a stance of Sen. Barack Obama.
McCain, then Palin, used the term “gotcha journalism” to describe the question. Couric defended her decision to bring up the topic. “It wasn’t a ‘gotcha,’ she was talking to a voter,” Couric said.
