Katie Couric Apologizes for Manipulating Audio in Anti-Gun Documentary

Under The Gun's deceptive treatment of its interview subjects is so egregious that even the most ardent anti-gun progressive will not want to touch it with a ten-foot pole. Raw audio obtained from the documentary shows that the production team deliberately replaced the gun owners answer to Couric's question about terror suspects trying to get firearms with footage of them sitting silently as if in confusion, so as to make it look like they had no answer to the reporter's loaded question:

“When I screened an early version of the film with the director, Stephanie Soechtig, I questioned her and the editor about the pause and was told that a ‘beat’ was added for, as she described it, ‘dramatic effect,' to give the audience a moment to consider the question. When VCDL members recently pointed out that they had in fact immediately answered this question, I went back and reviewed it and agree that those eight seconds do not accurately represent their response….I regret that those eight seconds were misleading and that I did not raise my initial concerns more vigorously.

The criticism of Couric’s seemingly blatant distortion of what really happened has come from all corners, including NPR, which made clear that it never would have inserted the pause in the film because its journalistic standards are higher than those of Couric.”
