Even NPR admits that the deceptive editing, which makes a group of gun-rights activists appear like idiots unable to answer one of Couric’s questions when in fact they did answer it quickly and thoroughly during the actual interview, looks really bad for Couric and the makers of Under The Gun.

It’s actually pretty easy to make someone look like an idiot with the help of a little editing — even Katie Couric.
