Who is katie couric dating right now
In a statement posted on the “Under the Gun” documentary’s website, Couric took responsibility and expressed regret for the editing process.
“As executive producer of ‘Under the Gun,’ a documentary film that explores the epidemic of gun violence, I take responsibility for a decision that misrepresented an exchange I had with members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL),” she wrote.
The new film “Hidden Figures” tells the stories of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, who worked as “human computers” for NASA, and helped put John Glenn into orbit and Neil Armstrong on the moon. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe, the stars of “Hidden Figures,” stopped by Yahoo News to discuss the film and true story behind it. “My question to the VCDL regarding the ability of convicted felons and those on the terror watch list to legally obtain a gun, was followed by an extended pause, making the participants appear to be speechless.“When I screened an early version of the film with the director, Stephanie Soechtig, I questioned her and the editor about the pause and was told that a ‘beat’ was added for, as she described it, ‘dramatic effect,’ to give the audience a moment to consider the question.Brian and I went to the White House to sit down with Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to President Barack Obama.Not only is Jarrett a guiding voice in the Obama administration, but she has also been friends with the President and First Lady since they were an engaged couple in Chicago in the early 1990s.
