Fire Katie Couric? But why?

From some American pro-gun group:

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. More.

Reality check: Guys, if you think that the solution is to holler for Couric’s firing, you are dumb. There is no polite way to put that, so I didn’t try.

Leave her in place at Yahoo and shower her with honours! Always allow people to know that she is an excellent producer of fictional narratives in support of the causes she espouses. And that, if they want facts about you, they should come to you.

Digital media like Yahoo can be legacy media, just like the New York Times, insofar as they see themselves as gatekeepers of news, which they feel free to shape to fit the narratives needed by policymakers of progressive governments.

Use this as an opportunity to reinforce the need for independent new media, in the face of government crackdown attempts.

  • I agree, he continued employment just highlights the deplorable state of the MSM

    • WalterBannon

      I disagree.

      Actions must have consequences and she must be held accountable, not rewarded by having continued employment.

      Her actions should bar her from a future in her chosen profession. Let her go work as a Walmart greeter and ponder her errors.

      • And lose all that good advertising for the fundamental problem? Loss of the idea of fact, evidence, and truth?

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    No, I think she needs to be fired, and publicly so.
    I want to chill the future actions of others.
    All this deeper posturing is wasted on a public that assumes that if she is still working, she must be “good”.
    No, I say we collect her scalp!

    • At last, we are having the right discussion.

    • robins111

      I’m a little drawn towards both options, leaving her in place and mocking her historical bullshit is attractive, however booting her ass out the door would sure send a message…

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I think she should just be made to go on camera without makeup.

    • Exile1981

      If we don’t demand her firing then it makes us look weak and emboldens our enemies.

      • WalterBannon

        If she is not fired then as far as the left leaning world is concerned her crime never happened and this lie becomes the public record.

        Have we learned nothing from the successful Alinsky tactics of the left?
