Posted on 07/31/2017 4:34:10 PM PDT by Zakeet
Katie Couric and Yahoo News parted ways on Friday after four years of Couric serving as the organization's global news anchor.
Couric's headlining interview show for Yahoo News has been canceled. Her $10 million contract ended in March 2017 and was renewed through June. Couric will continue working with Yahoo News and its corporate parent Oath on a project-by-project basis.
Couric's four-year tenure was marred by criticism she received in the wake of revelations she and her fellow filmmakers deceptively edited an interview with gun rights activists in their 2016 Under the Gun film. In that film, a group of activists with the Virginia Citizens Defense League are shown sitting in silence for nine seconds following a question from Couric about terrorism and background checks. However, raw audio obtained by the Washington Free Beacon shows several of the activists immediately responded to Couric's question.
Couric and the film's director later admitted to editing in the silence and apologized "if anyone felt" the deceptive edit made them look bad.
A second Couric film, 2014's Fed Up, faced accusations of similar deceptive editing soon after.

Any of you Freepers need a Libtard twit who's an expert at reading fake news?
She was REPEATEDLY flying out to Epstein’s Rape Island.
How many times has ANYONE asked her about it?
Couric’s Under the Gun edit:
Lying bitch needs to never have another moment’s peace for what she did to Sarah Palin.
Really dislike her and always have. Long list of nothingburgers that people watched on the Today show no matter what. Ludicrous and mostly unattractive women.
There’s a “Yahoo News”???
How many stories did she write for that huge salary?
Wow she was too moonbat scummy for insane liberal Yahoo.
Wonder if Yahoo will post an article about this?
How shall the moonbats comment?
[Theres a Yahoo News???]
Unfortunately, yes. BUT it’s basically a branch office of DU and the Huffington Post.
Oooooh, they partnered with oft-NeverTrumpers IBD - gee what a surprise.
I see she’s been going to the DWS makeover spa.
Katie is out?!?
I never got to watch a single episode of her show. Not one in those 4 years. Now I guess that I’m going to miss failing not to see a single one of her shows.
Like Megyn, Couric gets to cry all the way to the bank.
It’s the execs who hired her who are in big trouble.
Making room for Megyn Kelly?
Megyn Kelly would be the perfect replacement.
