    Katie Couric's gun control movie has gotten a lot of criticism for fraudulently editing a discussion with the Virginia Defense League. Just earlier today apologized today for the misleading edits. EPIX has just announced that it is no longer showing the movie here. The two might not be unrelated. Will Apple now pull the movie from iTunes?

    Katie Couric apologized on Monday after days of criticism about a “misleading” edit in her new documentary that made gun rights advocates “appear to be speechless” when asked a simple question about gun control. “I take responsibility,” the news anchor wrote in a statement on the website for Under the Gun, a documentary about gun violence in America that she narrated and produced.

    GunGate – Katie Couric Alters VCDL Responses in “Documentary” By Kitty on May 27, 2016 Katie Couric has been exposed as a fraud over the current GunGate debacle, and since Gadsden Guns owner Pat Webb was one of the parties whose answers were altered in the so-called documentary, we feel it’s our duty to speak out and share the truth about what really happened.GunGate – How it Happened Under the guise of documentary journalism, pro-gun activists were interviewed by Katie Couric in order to “provide varied viewpoints.”In fact, those are some of the exact words that were included in the...

    The WRAP ^ | May 26, 2016 | Beatrice Verhoeven
    Katie Couric is upset that an eight-second pause inserted into an interview she did with gun rights activists in the documentary “Under the Gun” has drawn criticism, calling the edit an “unnecessary mistake,” according to an individual with knowledge of her thinking. The individual spoke to TheWrap and said that director Stephanie Soechtig inserted the pause, which critics are calling an example of “deceptive” and “appalling journalism.” “This was an unnecessary mistake,” the individual told TheWrap. “It did not represent editing someone’s sentences, there was no factual error, this is not a mistake that is a substantive mistake. It could...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 5-25-16 | Stephen Gutowski
    The makers of a new Katie Couric documentary on gun violence deceptively edited an interview between Couric and a group of gun rights activists in an apparent attempt to embarrass the activists, an audio recording of the full interview shows. 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...

    Virginia Citizens Defense League Alert ^ | 5-23-16 | Philip Van Cleave
    “Creative” editing by Katie Couric, who must have graduated from the Joseph Goebbels School of Journalism, has intentionally and significantly changed the response of VCDL members in a new video called “Under the Gun” - and I have PROOF. VCDL APPROACHED TO BE PART OF A “DOCUMENTARY” I received an email in March of 2015 from Kristin Lazure, a producer for Atlas Films, asking if VCDL would be part of "a documentary about the gun violence prevention movement in America.” In the email, Kristin said, "Some of the storylines we're exploring include the legislative process on the federal and state...
  • Katie Couric: ‘Silent Majority’ of Gun Owners Want More Gun Control

    Breitbart - Big Hollywood ^ | 5-13-2016 | AWR Hawins
    During a May 13 appearance on NBC’s Today, Katie Couric previewed her upcoming gun control documentary by claiming a “silent majority” of gun owners want more gun control. Couric said these things during an interview conducted by Matt Lauer, who began the interview by countering FBI statistics and claiming mass shootings are on the rise. In September 2014, the FBI released a highly politicized study claiming a rise in mass shootings, only to have the authors of the study recant months later and admit they created data to make the study outcome fit a preconceived conclusion. (snip) So Couric undertook...

    See if you agree that she’s being snotty. Do all those scientists and the Pope have it wrong? asks Couric. “Satellite data show that for the last 17 years there has been no significant recorded warming,” Cruz calmly answers. “None.”It’as a partisan agenda, Cruz insists. The solution is always “more government control of the environment, of the economy, of energy, and our lives.” (Until watching this, I didn’t know that both of his Cruz’s parents were scientists.)Video at link.

    <p>When network-news star Katie Couric said in late 2013 she'd leave television to become Yahoo's first "global news anchor," it was heralded as a groundbreaking move that would help the search giant and the broader Web go toe-to-toe with the behemoth of traditional TV.</p> <p>But as a struggling Yahoo eyes a sale of its core search and media businesses, Couric's $10 million-a-year deal to roll out video packages has been wrenched into an uncomfortable spotlight.</p>

    TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Who do you think started the birther movement against Obama? You know the birther movement, the claim that Obama was not born in Hawaii, that he was rather born in some Muslim country somewhere. And that he was not qualified, according to the Constitution, to be president, 'cause he's not born of American parents anywhere, and he was not born in the United States. Who started that movement? (interruption) Well, you're pretty damn close. It was Hillary Clinton that started the movement. It was the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008 that started the movement. That whole thing was...
  • Katie Couric to Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina: C'Mon, Aren't You Just Running For a VP Slot?

    For months, and even before she declared her presidential candidacy, many have questioned whether former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is actually serious about running for president and not just locking down a vice presidential nomination. This speculation has been driving me nuts, especially since it's continued after she announced a run for the White House earlier this month. But over the weekend anchor Katie Couric, infamous for her interview with Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential cycle, brought up the notion again and asked Fiorina directly if she was really just running to be picked as vice president. "Really many...

    FIORINA: Well, you see, Katie, in the world I come from, a title is just a title. I mean, you went through a whole bunch of things about me as CEO. You weren't impressed with my title. Why are we so impressed with political titles? Senator is a title. Secretary of State is a title. It's a completely legitimate question to say, "What has anyone accomplished with their title?" And the truth is, there are many in the political class who haven't accomplished a whole lot, despite their titles. COURIC: What about the trustworthy claim (re: Hillary)? FIORINA: Well, you...

    Sheila Weller’s forthcoming tell-all ‘The News Sorority’ claims to offer up details on the scandalous and sometimes catty escapades of noteworthy newswomen, including how some apparently hold strong disdain for each other. Katie Couric cultivated an “American Girl identity” but she was also a bully with a “chip on her shoulder.” Diane Sawyer strived to be “America’s Aunt” but she rode her staff hard and used “staged humility” to disarm critics. Christiane Amanpour was fearless in the field and would remind her bosses, “Do you know that I’m the world’s best-known foreign correspondent?” And, when feeling threatened, these pioneering, primetime...

    Less than three years after joining ABC in a lucrative and wide-ranging deal that included a daytime talk show and a role at ABC News, Katie Couric is negotiating an exit package, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The move comes as Couric is close to finalizing an extensive deal with Internet giant Yahoo, according to multiple sources. Couric's daytime talk show is in its second and almost certainly final season on ABC. She will complete the season and sources at Disney-ABC insist that a decision about the future of Katie will not be made until sometime in December after executives...

    Someone notify Shirley MacLaine, because Katie Couric’s dead husband appears to be making 911 calls from his old phone. According to the New York Daily News, every Tuesday at 2 a.m. the late Jay Monahan’s phone line dials 911, then Couric gets an emergency call back saying help is on the way. She has notified the police and they are looking into it. Apparently there is a prank called “spoofing,” where someone uses a device to hack into a phone remotely. Or, Monahan’s disembodied spirit is trying to order a pizza, but is too drunk to hit the right speed-dial...
