Katie Couric Accused of Manipulating Audio in Second Documentary

Reading the allegations made against Fed Up‘s representation of it’s participants, it is impossible to avoid noticing the similarities between them and the recent revelation that Couric and her team deceptively edited audio and footage to portray gun owners in an unfavorable light. If the claims are found to be true, Couric is going to have a lot more to worry about than distributors pulling her films off their websites:

“Dr. David Allison, an interview subject in the film and the director of the Nutrition Obesity Research Center, says he was a victim of shoddy journalism. ‘What she did to me is antithetical to not only just human decency and civility but it is antithetical to the spirit of science and democratic dialogue,’ he told the Washington Free Beacon.

After a brief exchange in the film between Allison and Couric over whether or not sugary beverages contribute more to obesity than other foods, Couric asks Allison about the science behind his objections. Allison then begins to explain before stumbling and asking Couric if he could pause to ‘get his thoughts together.’

Allison said Couric had told him it would be all right to pause and gather his thoughts at any point during the interview if he felt he needed to.

‘Ms. Couric had said to me at the beginning of our interview ‘You know, Dr. Allison, if at any point you need to go over an answer, you stumble on your words, just let me know, we’ll stop, and you can go back over it,’ he said.

Couric responds to Allison’s on camera request by saying ‘Okay,’ but the film shows Dr. Allison sitting silently for another seven seconds before cutting to another interview.

Allison is not shown again in the film.”
