Nahhh, Katie Couric would never edit an interview to make a conservative look bad. What a piece of work “The Perky One” is! – Sarah Palin
Governor Palin links to an article at Free Beacon that reports Couric’s deceptive editing of an interview with pro gun activists.
Audio Shows Katie Couric Documentary Deceptively Edited Interview with Pro-Gun Activists
May 25, 2016
The makers of a new Katie Couric documentary on gun violence deceptively edited an interview between Couric and a group of gun rights activists in an apparent attempt to embarrass the activists, an audio recording of the full interview shows.
At the 21:48 mark of Under the Gun a scene of Katie Couric interviewing members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a gun rights organization, is shown.
Couric can be heard in the interview asking activists from the group, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”
The documentary then shows the activists sitting silently for nine awkward seconds, unable to provide an answer. It then cuts to the next scene.
However, raw audio of the interview between Katie Couric and the activists provided to the Washington Free Beacon shows the scene was deceptively edited. Instead of silence, Couric’s question is met immediately with answers from the activists. (Free Beacon)
