Katie Couric says she regrets a “misleading” portion of “Under the Gun,” a new documentary that she produced and narrated.
“I take responsibility for a decision that misrepresented an exchange I had with members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League,” Couric said in a statement on Monday night.
The pivotal edit in the documentary made a group of gun rights activists seem stumped by one of Couric’s questions. The edit was exposed by a blogger last week.
During the interview for the film, Couric asked, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorist from walking into, say, a licensed gun dealer and purchasing a gun?”
The documentary shows the group members silently looking around for about eight seconds. But an audio recording proved that the interviewees responded right away.
