Media critics absolutely slammed Katie Couric on the “Reliable Sources” program on CNN for her gun documentary that unfairly portrayed gun advocates as dimwits in order to make Katie Couric sound smarter!!
Here’s the segment in its entirety:
The money line really came from David Zurawik, who said that “dishonest documentary filmmakers are one of the lowest forms of life in the media”!!
Amazingly, when Couric was caught by a conservative blogger lying in her documentary, she initially denied that it happened and then gave an excuse for why it happened. It took a few days of conservative uproar before she finally acquiesced and admitted that they had made a mistake.
But it really makes you wonder – how much of this kind of deceptive crap do they get away with when they aren’t forced to face their lies and apologize?
That’s why the new media is so important – it’s one of the few things that is keeping journalists honest these days!!
