On Friday, NBC Today co-host Matt Lauer provided Yahoo! News anchor Katie Couric a softball platform to promote her new anti-gun documentary: “She’s here to talk about a powerful new documentary called Under the Gun. It examines both sides of the gun safety debate in this country and explores the drastic rise in mass shootings and daily gun violence across the United States.”

Despite claiming the agenda-driven film looked at “both sides,” Couric spent the entire segment predictably pushing for gun control: “I couldn't understand the disconnect, Matt, between the fact that 90% of the public really favors universal background checks....the disconnect between public opinion and our elected officials. And I wanted to really uncover why nothing was happening on this issue.”
