Nora Ryan, the chief of staff for EPIX, the cable channel that is airing the documentary, told the Free Beacon in an email, “Under the Gun is a critically-acclaimed documentary that looks at the polarizing and politicized issue of gun violence, a subject that elicits strong reactions from people on both sides. EPIX stands behind Katie Couric, director Stephanie Soechtig, and their creative and editorial judgment. We encourage people to watch the film and decide for themselves.”
Or, put another way: We don’t like the people we screwed over, so we’re going to call our dishonesty “editorial judgment.”
One wonders how exactly viewers are supposed to “watch the film and decide for themselves” when what they are watching is a lie?
