HBO, Like Couric, Accused Of Deceptively Editing Interview

posted on June 2, 2016

Jim Sullivan, one of the designers of the AR-15, the Ruger Mini-14 and other popular firearms, has accused HBO of deceptively editing his interview in an unconscionably biased episode of “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” titled, “AR15: Modern Sporting Rifle.” 

Sullivan wrote to The Federalist, “The anti-gun HBO sports interview misrepresented much of what I had said. They were apparently trying to make the AR-15 civilian model seem too dangerous for civilian sales. They didn’t lie about what I said; they just omitted key parts which changed the meaning.” 

Sullivan wrote that HBO “omitted that I had said ‘when firing semi-auto only and that the select fire M16 on full auto is of course more effective,’” when comparing the lethality of the AR-15 to the military M-16. About appearing to imply the AR-15 was never meant for civilian use, Sullivan wrote, “That doesn’t mean I’m not pleased to see AR-15s sell on the civilian market. It just means I didn’t realize they would 57 years ago.”
