Couric currently faces a $12 million defamation lawsuit for “misleading” edits she made in her documentary “Under the Gun.”
Yahoo News’ Global Anchor Katie Couric moderated a panel on Wednesday at the 2017 Aspen Ideas Festival that featured some of the biggest names in media and started the discussion by asking the panel why less than 40 percent of the United States says they fully trust the media.
The panel featured The Wall Street Journal‘s Gerard Baker, USA Today‘s Joanne Lipman, CNBC’s Nikhil Deogun, TIME‘s Nancy Gibbs, and The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg
Couric, however, may not need the panel’s input on the topic of the American people’s distrust of the media, having found herself the defendant in a lawsuit over “misleading” edits in her documentary, “Under the Gun.”
“Under the Gun,” examined gun violence and gun control in the United States. Couric served as executive producer and narrator of the film, which came under criticism for an eight-second pause that was added for “dramatic effect.”
Couric faces a $12 million defamation lawsuit for this “misleading” edit.
