Funny how the lib media can keep having these kinds of totally honest editing room errors that never even accidentally favor the conservative side of the argument:

Katie Couric has apologized for the “Under the Gun” documentary that aired on EPIX, saying she regrets the editing process that was “misleading.”

The documentary came under scrutiny when it first seemed like a group of gun rights activists were stumped by her question about background checks, taking eight seconds to respond: “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from walking into, say, a licensed gun dealer and purchasing a gun?”

Audio recordings revealed that, in fact, they responded right away.

In a statement posted on the “Under the Gun” documentary’s website, Couric took responsibility and expressed regret for the editing process.
[…]
“As executive producer of ‘Under the Gun,’ a documentary film that explores the epidemic of gun violence, I take responsibility for a decision that misrepresented an exchange I had with members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL),” she wrote. “My question to the VCDL regarding the ability of convicted felons and those on the terror watch list to legally obtain a gun, was followed by an extended pause, making the participants appear to be speechless.

Couric wasn’t as much of a fan of editing when it came to CMP’s Planned Parenthood videos, which weren’t even edited to include pauses for “dramatic effect,” but “objective” journalists work in mysterious ways.
