Katie Couric's mad trick photography skillz

Noted television burn-out Katie Couric recently produced an anti-gun documentary that used some clearly dishonest editing to discredit 2nd Amendment advocates. As reported in the Washington Free Beacon:
“Katie Couric asked a key question during an interview of some members of our organization,” he said. “She then intentionally removed their answers and spliced in nine seconds of some prior video of our members sitting quietly and not responding. Viewers are left with the misunderstanding that the members had no answer to her question.”
Here's a tip, KC: if you're going to be this dishonest, you'd better be a lot less obvious about it.

Update: Much more from Ed Morrissey at Hot Air, including astomishing pretty predictable responses from Couric and the program's defenders.

I guess this is an exemplar of the "magical realism" style of journalism.

Katie Couric...a journalist? Well, if a man can self-identify as a woman or whatever, then a talking head can call theirself a journalist. She, obviously is a graduate of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism.

If they just call this what it is...propaganda...the deceptive editing is to be expected.

This is why conservatives and other sane people should never talk to certain media celebrities. Ever.
