Anyone who knows anything about guns and watches or reads the news should get a good laugh out of this.
I believe that the major media companies and outlets have fallen into a trap of their own making, refusing to think for themselves, enforcing political stereotypes to keep people from questioning authority. Since 9/11, the main job of the television media has been to keep us scared enough to be quiet and maintain the status quo. They hide behind false claims of impartiality to make tens of millions of dollars a year selling us shampoo and financial advisers while ignoring their high-minded ideals or prostituting them for Pulitzers, turning them into something that reminds me more of televangelists than the search for the truth to enlighten the masses.
OK, rant ended.
