Katie Couric has remained noticeably silent amid allegations that her documentary, “Under the Gun,” was deceptively edited to make gun rights activists look bad.

But according to “an individual with knowledge of Couric’s thinking,” she regrets the “unnecessary mistake.”

“It did not represent editing someone’s sentences, there was no factual error, this is not a mistake that is a substantive mistake. It could have been avoided,” the source told The Wrap. “This was a poor decision that was made and it involves silence.”

In the disputed “Under the Gun” scene, gun rights activists are asked about background checks for “felons and terrorists” — and they seem to respond with several seconds of dumbfounded silence. However, outraged members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League later provided audio to the Washington Free Beacon showing that answers were provided almost immediately.

Still, Stephanie Soechtig, the director of the documentary, said she would “never misrepresent someone’s point of view and I don’t think I did by doing this.”

 Critics have blasted the documentary as unbalanced and intended to make gun rights activists look bad.
