Katie Couric dismissed the deceptive, heavy editing of an interview she did with gun rights activists as being an “unnecessary mistake” … sort of like misspeaking.
At least that’s what a source claims.
The Wrap reported that “an individual with knowledge of Couric’s thinking” said the former CBS anchor is upset that the documentary “Under the Gun” has come under fire for editing that made the gun rights activists appear unable to respond to a question about how to prevent felons or terrorists from buying a gun.
The documentary showed the members sitting silently for nine awkward seconds — the intelligent and ready responses they offered, along with more than four minutes of discussion being left on the cutting room floor.
“This was an unnecessary mistake,” the source said. “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,” he added.
The individual pointed his finger at director Stephanie Soechtig for inserting the pause, according to The Wrap.
But the director stood by her decision-making.
“I would never misrepresent someone’s point of view and I don’t think I did by doing this,” Soechtig told The Wrap. “I don’t think I misrepresented gun owners or the people featured in the film.”
