Sarah Palin New York, August 05 (ANI): ‘CBS Evening News’ anchor Katie Couric has created controversy by mocking the names of Sarah Palin’s children in a video that’s gone viral on the net.

The 2008 video, taken from a raw satellite feed, shows Couric, wearing reading glasses, rehearsing some intros at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.

“Where the hell do they get these names,” Couric says while reading some copy about Palin’s son, Track Palin.

Couric had mentioned shortly before that the youngest of Palin’s five children, then-four-month-old Trig Palin was born with Down Syndrome.

Later in the video, Couric has some trouble with the correct pronunciation of Wasilla, Palin’s hometown in Alaska.

The video was shot a few weeks before Couric’s often-testy interview with Sarah Palin, in which the Vice Presidential hopeful couldn’t name a publication she read regularly, reports The New York Post.

“It must be a very slow news day,” a CBS News spokesman said when asked about the video. (ANI)
