This how the article at Breitbart starts:

Radio host John Cardillo claims that interview segments with noted gun scholar John Lott were included in the earliest version of Katie Couric’s gun control movie Under the Gun, but were taken out at Michael Bloomberg’s request following a private screening.

Cardillo is host of The John Cardillo Show, while Lott is an economist, gun rights author and president and founder of the Crime Prevention Research Center.

On May 16, Breitbart News reported that Couric’s gun control documentary left four hours of an interview with Lott on the cutting room floor. In an interview with The Guardiandirector Stephanie Soechtig explained their decision to omit the Lott interview in its entirety:

“[Lott’s] research has been criticized and largely discredited, and when we went to include it in the film, it felt like unnecessary real estate to put in the film, because we know his research has been debunked many times. We kept going back to the idea that we wanted to reserve the real estate in the film for the responsible gun owners.”

But Cardillo says his brother knows one of the individuals that financed the movie, and that that financier says portions of Lott’s interview were included in the earliest version of the movie, only to be taken out at Bloomberg’s request. . . .

    Well, in case no one knew where Katie Curic’s toast is buttered by, this is news. For those who knew that, this is just another white 1% liberal entitled who is managing the truth.
    Blumberg is just another rich liberal who does not find it necessary to learn the truth. What a putz. Bye bye blumbert.
