Brady Campaign Awards Katie Couric For Misleading Documentary No One Saw Or Cares About

posted on November 19, 2016

You remember Katie Couric’s gun control documentary, “Under The Gun.” It was widely criticized for deceptive editing that made Virginia Citizens Defense League members appear stumped when asked how we can prevent felons and terrorists from purchasing guns. In reality, the VCDL team was ready with answers. (She also omitted any mention of a 4-hour interview with researcher John Lott.) Couric was forced to issue an apology, and the VCDL filed a $12 million defamation suit.

Nonetheless, gun control organizations continued to promote Couric’s slanted film. Moms Demand Action’s Shannon Watts heavily promoted a free screening in Louisville opposite the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in May, but the showing was attended by only 40 people. 

Lack of enthusiasm continues to dog Couric who, on Nov. 15, was recognized by the Brady Campaign with a Bear Award, given to honor gun control advocates. As of this writing, multiple posts about the awards on Brady’s Facebook page have drawn only single-digit likes and shares. 

Last year, Brady gave an award to Hillary Clinton—another gun control figure who generated little enthusiasm.
