A few months ago, Katie Couric and her director Stephanie Soechtig made a series of misleading edits in their Under The Gun that made VCDL members appear stumped by Couric’s gun control questions.
The proud liberals inserted an eight-second pause into the film between the end of Couric’s question about gun control and the responses offered by VCDL members. This made it look like the VCDL members had been baffled by Couric’s gun control insight, when in reality they had answered Couric immediately.
This came back to haunt the two liberals when raw audio obtained by the Washington Free Beacon proved that the questions had in fact been answered immediately. Now, this move has come back to bite them in a big way. Now, Breitbart is reporting that things just got a whole lot worse for Couric and Soechtig when VCDL filed a $12 million defamation suit against them both.
“We were horrified to see how Couric and her team manipulated us and the video footage to make us look like fools who didn’t stand up for the Second Amendment,” saidVCDL president Philip Van Cleave. “We want to set the record straight and hold them accountable for what they’ve done. You shouldn’t intentionally misrepresent someone’s views just because you disagree with them.”
The lawsuit claims that Couric and Soechtig “knowingly and maliciously manufactured the fictional exchange by splicing in footage that the
filmmakers took surreptitiously after telling the interviewees to be silent for ten seconds so that recording equipment could be calibrated.”
