Nearly Every News Network Ignores Katie Couric’s “Under the Gun” Deception

As of Thursday evening, the news broadcasts of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and the Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision had yet to broadcast a single word about the deliberately deceptive "editing" used to make gun owners appear stupid and uncaring in Katie Couric’s so-called documentary “Under the Gun,” Newsbusters reports

Couric’s hatchet job was so dishonest and misleading that even the Washington Post, The New York Times and the CNN Money website were forced to cry foul—indeed, a Washington Post media critic wrote, “In the years we’ve covered and watched media organizations, we’ve scarcely seen a thinner, more weaselly excuse” for the deception. But, apparently their colleagues in the broadcast media see nothing wrong. 

With liars like Katie Couric and Brian Williams “editing” the major network news broadcasts into a hash of deceit, is it any wonder Americans are pulling the plug? Next stop for Katie: Mad magazine!
