Katie Couric Doc Accused of Deceptively Editing Interview With Pro-Gun Activists

– The Washington Times – Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Epix is standing behind its new Katie Couric documentary “Under the Gun” after it was accused of deceptively editing an interview between Ms. Couric and a group of pro-gun activists.

At the documentary’s 21:48 mark, Ms. Couricspeaks with members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a pro-gun organization, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Ms. Couric asks, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”

The documentary shows the activists sitting in silence for nine seconds, apparently unable to come up with an answer, before it cuts to a different scene.

Raw audio of the interview obtained by the Free Beacon revealed that the activists responded immediately and debated for more than four minutes.
