“Katie Couric is taking serious flak over the edited version of an interview with gun supporters in a documentary,” Washington Free Beacon reports. “In Under the Gun, Couric asks the group, ‘If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?’ As this video shows, the question is met by dumbfounded silence. But . . .
the Washington Free Beacon obtained audio of the interview, and it shows that people responded immediately to the question, including one man who said, “One, if you’re not in jail, you should still have your basic rights.”
Couric got caught with her proverbial pants down on this one. Her response — I suck — is both true and besides the point. She knew what she was doing. And progressives wonder why conservatives view the anti-gun rights mainstream media with unbridled contempt.
