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.”
Awww, poor Katie is upset that she has been exposed in her attempt to smear gun owners. Apparently her partner in fraud has the sads too.Again getting caught as a liar sucks
Soechtig also spoke to TheWrap and stood by the editing choice.
“I would never misrepresent someone’s point of view and I don’t think I did by doing this,” she said. “I don’t think I misrepresented gun owners or the people featured in the film.”
Excuse me? That is exactly what you did! Couric asked a question, and you deliberately omitted the well informed and solid responses of the gun rights group, and replaced them with 9 seconds silent in which that group was made to look like idiots who had no clue how to answer Courics’ question.
In an official statement, Soechtig said, “my intention was to provide a pause for the viewer to have a moment to consider this important question before presenting the facts on Americans’ opinions on background checks. I never intended to make anyone look bad and I apologize if anyone felt that way.”
Your “intent” is damn clear Ms. Soechtig, you intended to perpetuate a false narrative, and got caught! The evidence is very clear! Here is the video
And HERE is the audio
There is no question as to your intent, none!
