A1F:After more than two hours of pre-interviews with Kristin Lazure, a producer at Atlas Films, John Lott was asked to travel to New York City to do an interview with Katie Couric for her “documentary” (propaganda is a more honest word for it) “Under the Gun.”
This, of course, is the film in which an eight-second pause was edited in to make it seem like members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) were stumped by a question. But the gun-rights advocates also recorded the interview. When they released the unedited tape, Couric was shown to be a propagandist and liar.
So Lott went to New York City for the interview. It was to take place in a hotel room, which is actually a pretty common thing. Lott says he knew what he was walking into. He has been around the block with the anti-gun media. Lott is the author of the groundbreaking book More Guns, Less Crime and is now president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, an organization dedicated to conducting academic-quality research on the relationship between laws regulating the ownership or use of guns, crime and public safety.
During the pre-interviews, Lazure told Lott multiple times how much she appreciated his research and how important it was. He hoped they’d at least treat him fairly.
