Katie Couric Gun Documentary Deceptively Edited

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 3:48 pm



This one is bad. Basically Couric asks a gun group: if you don’t have background checks, how do you prevent felons and terrorists from getting guns? Then the gun group is shown silent for several seconds, looking at each other blankly, and putting their heads down as if ashamed of their lack of an answer. Only — you guessed it! — the footage of them being silent was spliced in. The audio proves they had responses. Check it out at The Free Beacon — and all hail the power of New Media!

  1. Brad Friedman howls about deceptively edited videos in 3..2…never…

  2. Katie Couric is the perfect representation of the head cheerleader/perky sorority girl type whom you generally liked in college but later found out is entirely unscrupulous and downright malicious.

  3. This is how the election will go.

  4. The Virginia Citizens Defense League ought to sue her for libel. Those 8 seconds are a libel.

  5. All I can think to say about Corkie would make people suspect happyfeet is sockpuppeting me. Ever since her interview of Ross Perot, let alone Sarah.

  6. Forging a group’s response is pretty reckless disregard for the facts of their response. LEt a Virginia jury decide whether Couric and her producer intended to make them look stupid and/or guilty.

  7. and you wonder why yahoo is going gangbusters, I’ve despised her since elian days, when she turned out not to be so perky.

  11. Couric has been trash for years. She deserves her comeuppance and I hope she is sued into bankruptcy.

  12. Kevin,

    Katie Couric makes me want to vote for Trump?

  13. Liberals lie. This is news?

  15. I have lots and lots of leftie friends. And many of them actually are upset about this.

    I think they are starting to get it: propaganda is always wrong…and can be used against things you care about.

    Maybe there is hope.

  16. Anyone who starts an argument with “I heard on the news that…” may be safely ignored.

  17. #15 When a Lefty gets “upset” about its lies — it means upset they got caught.

  18. Katie Couric responds! :)

  19. Deceptive is too passive of a term. This was overtly dishonest.

  20. Theme song.

  21. Agree with JD. Inexcusable. All of the answers were perfectly rational and well-reasoned, which wasn’t the message Couric wanted to send.

  22. Reason demonstrates why this is a problem.

  23. Katie Couric makes me want to vote for Trump?

    Don’t believe I said that. Yes, there may be an “eff it” point where the constitution be damned and I just want to see those folks lined up against a wall and shot. But I’m not there yet, as I still worry that the reign of terror would continue apace.

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  24. No, no, no! I meant the worst thing I could possibly say about Corkie.

    nk (dbc370)

  25. Linda is on the phone. She wants her song back.

    Some nonsense about Katie being a “great American patriot” and “someone who is spreading the truth”.

    I told her papertiger inc. buys the rights on all the music it posts at Patterico Pontifications.

  26. i hate katie couric so effing much

  27. Ms. Couric’s next show: “Perky Little Liars.”

  29. This is especially infuriating when one considers last year’s Center for Medical Progress videos that exposed the baby body parts racket at Planned Parenthood slaughterhouses were completely discounted by the left and the media because of alleged “deceptive editing”. But as the Federalist points out, the difference is that the Center for Medical Progress posted online for anyone to see, all the hours of unedited film interviews. Couric and her crew did anything but.
