Poll Context: Katie Couric got caught red handed editing a gun rights documentary to make herself look smart and her guests look dumb. In the documentary, Couric poses a question to proponents of the Second Amendment with the Virginia Citizens Defense League about preventing felons and terrorists from obtaining firearms and they appear to be stumped.
Katie Couric, the third rate reporter, who has been largely forgotten, should be ashamed of herself for the fraudulent editing of her doc.

However, Fox News host Greg Gutfeld juxtaposed the audio from the documentary with the raw audio of the initial interview, in which they offer answers to her question.
“It was done to make her look smart and them dumb,” Gutfeld said.
In a statement, Couric said that she regrets the edit, which she called “misleading.”
“I take responsibility for a decision that misrepresented an exchange I had with members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League,” she added.
Gutfeld expressed doubt that Couric’s response was sincere.
“So why did she change her tune?” Gutfeld asked. “Because she got caught.”
“If the incident hadn’t been secretly taped, you think she would have copped to it?” Gutfeld said. “You’ve got to wonder how many other segments by Couric, Brian Williams, Jon Stewart or others would have been more fair if they knew someone was holding them accountable.”
