‘Journalist’ Katie Couric doctored video to cast gun rights activists in negative light

Caught in the act!

Katie Couric’s latest “documentary” on gun violence is nothing more than misleading progressive propaganda. The progressive Yahoo Global News anchor selectively edited the footage to make Second Amendment rights activists look uninformed and foolish.

Luckily, The Washington Free Beacon obtained raw audio of the interview, which proves the activists were knowledgeable and willing to engage Couric in a lively debate about the issue.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

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.

… 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. A back and forth between a number of the league’s members and Couric over the issue of background checks proceeds for more than four minutes after the original question is asked.

This is an unacceptable act of deception. Katie Couric lied to the American public. It should ruin her credibility and end her career in journalism.

You can compare the documentary footage with the raw audio from the interview below:
