Spread the Word: Fire Katie Couric

Spread the Word: Fire Katie Couric

By now you’ve probably heard: Yahoo’s Katie Couric, who produced and narrated an anti-gun documentary, “Under the Gun,” deceptively edited footage to embarrasses gun-rights supporters and misrepresent their message.  By inserting an 8-second pause and taking out pro-gun arguments, Couric deliberately – and there’s no other way to put this – tried to make gun owners look dumb. 

This isn’t the first example of anti-gun bias in the media, nor will it likely be the last. But it certainly is one of the most reprehensible. What makes matters worse is that Couric’s sense of journalistic integrity didn’t kick in until after she’d been caught. Even then, her half-hearted “apology” fell flat. 

If you’re as outraged over rampant anti-gun media bias as we are, then you can do three things.

  • First, lend us your voice on June 6.

    By signing up (click below), our #FireKatie message will be heard far and wide on social media.



              
    • Second, sign the petition: It’s time for Katie Couric to be fired.

      "Under the Gun" is just another example of anti-gun propaganda being passed around as “news” by “journalists” who don’t believe in the Second Amendment, don’t like guns or the people who own them, and are in the pockets of politicians like ex-NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton. 


     

  • Third, spread the word between now and Monday! 

    Urge other Second Amendment supporters to sign up as well! With your help, we’ll make it known once and for all: We are FED UP with the media’s constant smear campaign against gun rights and gun owners.
