Katie Couric has been fired from Yahoo News.
The liberal shill, who served as Yahoo’s “Global News Anchor,” was embroiled in a massive FAKE NEWS scandal, involving “deceptive editing” (LIES) of a film on gun rights.
Couric and the film’s director later admitted to the unscrupulous editing, and apologized “if anyone felt” the deceptive edit made them look bad.
Recently, Couric had the audacity to slam what she deemed as fake news coming from conservatives, even while being embroiled in her own real life FAKE NEWS controversy.
Katie Couric and Yahoo News parted ways on Friday after four years of Couric serving as the organization’s global news anchor.
Couric’s headlining interview show for Yahoo News has been canceled. Her $10 million contract ended in March 2017 and was renewed through June. Couric will continue working with Yahoo News and its corporate parent Oath on a project-by-project basis.
“Over the last four years, Katie has created a vast portfolio of work that has been equal parts inspiring, thought-provoking and fun to watch,” an Oath spokesperson told Recode. “We’re proud of everything she has accomplished and look forward to exploring ways to work together in the future.”
Couric’s four-year tenure was marred by criticism she received in the wake of revelations she and her fellow filmmakers deceptively edited an interview with gun rights activists in their 2016 Under the Gunfilm. In that film, a group of activists with the Virginia Citizens Defense League are shown sitting in silence for nine seconds following a question from Couric about terrorism and background checks. However, raw audio obtained by the Washington Free Beacon shows several of the activists immediately responded to Couric’s question.
Couric and the film’s director later admitted to editing in the silence and apologized “if anyone felt” the deceptive edit made them look bad.
A second Couric film, 2014’s Fed Up, faced accusations of similar deceptive editing soon after.
