BREAKING: EPIX Pulls Katie Couric's Fraudulent Documentary "Under The Gun"

EPIX is totally and completely full of shit. They did NOT pull it as a planned process to make way for Electronic Sell-Through (EST) and Transactional Video on Demand (TVOD).

Read for yourself their original press release:


And an article in an industry trade rag, The Wrap.

To support the film’s premiere and to help raise awareness of the issue, Epix is collaborating with the filmmakers to implement robust social marketing that will include an expansive grassroots program designed to mobilize affinity groups across the country through a series of local market screenings and town hall events.


Lionsgate will coordinate a limited theatrical release in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles, as well as manage digital distribution on VOD platforms. Lionsgate will also manage distribution in Canada.


“During this Presidential election year, we at Epix want to contribute to the national dialogue on the major issues affecting our country today. I can think of no more pressing subject than gun violence, and I am extremely proud to bring ‘Under the Gun’ to Epix viewers, said Mark S. Greenberg, the network’s CEO and president. “The gun debate, with its core issues of gun rights and gun violence, is one of the most polarizing taking place in our society today. In ‘Under the Gun,’ Katie and Stephanie bring their dynamic talent and perspective to this complex, multi-faceted issue and present honest, unbiased, and thoughtful commentary to this subject that has real life or death consequences.”

“We are pleased to make Epix the home for ‘Under the Gun.’ As both filmmakers and citizens who are deeply concerned about this issue, it was important for us that our film be seen by the widest possible audience. Epix showed a unique willingness and commitment to make ‘Under the Gun’ available to the entire country — for free — by premiering it during Epix’s nationwide free preview,” added Soechtig. “Making our film available to anyone with an Internet connection was something that no service or network other than Epix was willing to do. Their belief in this cause, and the passion that they bring to it, made them the obvious choice for Katie and me.”

So, with a smoke enema they claim they intended to pull it after two weeks all along... yeah, right. I don't fucking think so. ;)

Here's their press release page. Can you find anything else that was announced and then only had a 2 week run?
