Brady Campaign Honors Katie Couric for Discredited Gun Control Documentary
by AWR Hawkins 17 Nov 2016
The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence gave Katie Couric an award for the gun control documentary over which she faces a defamation suit for $12 million.
The documentary — Under the Gun — drew a lawsuit from the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) over “misleading” edits that made VCDL members appear stumped by Katie Couric’s line of gun control questions.
At the heart of the edits was an eight-second pause which made it look like the VCDL members were at a loss when questioned by Couric.
On May 27, 2016, Breitbart News reportedCouric’s admission that she regretted the insertion of the pause. The Wrap quoted a source close to Couric saying: “This was an unnecessary mistake. 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 have been avoided. This was a poor decision that was made, and it involves silence.”
But VCDL wants the record corrected and they filed a defamation suit to ensure that it is. CBS 6 reported on the defamation suit and quoted VCDL president Philip Van Cleave saying:
We were horrified to see how Couric and her team manipulated us and the video footage to make us look like fools who didn’t stand up for the Second Amendment. We want to set the record straight and hold them accountable for what they’ve done. You shouldn’t intentionally misrepresent someone’s views just because you disagree with them.
Yet the Brady Campaign awarded Couric a “Bear Award” for the documentary. PEOPLE magazine reported the award without any mention of the “misleading” edits or the defamation suit. Rather, they said, “Couric was also honored for her gun violence prevention film, Under the Gun.”
