Couric, Clinton, and Reid.

Where to begin?

In case you missed it, Katie Couric, head of Yahoo’s News Division, was the executive producer of an alleged “documentary” on guns in the US. The film was produced and directed by anti gun activist Stephanie Soechtig

At a point in the film, Couric asks a group of people from the Virginia Citizens Defense League:

“If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”

There is an 8 second gap between the question and the answer. The film seems to show that the people are confused or don’t know how to respond.

Here’s the relevant portion of the video:

The problem is that the people did respond immediately. The Virginia Citizens Defense League made an audio recording of the interview:

The footage used in the documentary was actually footage shot before the interview took place and inserted into the film and changed the whole tenor and meaning of what happened. Instead of the portrayal of being confused and not knowing how to answer, the members of the discussion group were well prepared and ready with an multiple answers.

Caught in a lie and deception, one would think Soechtig would apologize.

One would be wrong.

Soechtig issued this statement:

There are a wide range of views expressed in the film. My intention was to provide a pause for the viewer to have a moment to consider this important question before presenting the facts on Americans’ opinions on background checks. I never intended to make anyone look bad and I apologize if anyone felt that way.

Instead of being repentant for deceiving people, Soechtig admits the deception.

Couric, for her part, piles on and supports the lie saying:

“I support Stephanie’s statement and am very proud of the film.”

Couric supports and is proud to be the executive producer of a film that is a lie.

What does that say about her?

It was a bad day for Hillary Clinton two days ago when the State Department Inspector General’s report on her emails was released. The report concludes that Clinton not only broke State Department rules, but likely violated Federal law.

Ed Morrissey writes:

Clinton lied about having approval for the system. She lied about saying it was within the rules to use it, and that she had brought the server up to State Department security standards. Contrary to multiple statements from her team, not only did warnings arise about the use of that system during her tenure, those who raised the red flags were told to shut up about them. And despite assurances that Clinton would cooperate in reviews of her use of the private e-mail system, the IG report pointedly notes that “[t]hrough her counsel, Secretary Clinton declined OIG’s request for an interview.”

For someone who’s been insisting since the beginning that she was allowed to operate her own e-mail system, that refusal is stunning all on its own.

That also contradicts more recent Clinton statements. The FBI has begun to interview Clinton’s inner circle, a sign that the investigation is coming to a conclusion. Two weeks ago, Clinton told CBS News’ Face the Nation host John Dickerson that the FBI had not yet requested an interview, but that she would be “more than ready to talk to anyone, anytime.” The IG report clearly shows that as another lie, and if her attorneys kept her from talking with State Department investigators, it’s almost certain that she’d pass on an FBI “interview” as well.

But there are still people who blindly follow the false narrative the Clintons are putting out, even when that narrative doesn’t match the facts. One of those people happens to be Representative Adam Schiff (D- CA). Schiff was interviewed by Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC who just excoriated Schiff from head to toe.

When you lose MSNBC hosts as a liberal, you’d better worry.

Finally, there is this ripping of Senator Harry Reid (D – NV) by Senator Tom Cotton (R – AR) after Reid made some comments that were typical of Reid:

That’s gonna leave a mark.
