Media Bias Against Guns

This “news” article in Politico demonstrates how bias by journalists infect their work which then influences public opinion.

House Democrats are planning to move several high-profile bills to combat gun violence soon after they take power in January, underscoring their belief that the political landscape has shifted dramatically on an issue that’s plagued American society for decades.

My bolded text.

Throw in a Republican to give it the veneer of bipartisanship.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), who has co-authored background checks bills with Thompson in the past, has already told reporters that he will back this latest effort as well.

Then the writers quote a Democrat who conveniently offered a statement that ties Republicans to the NRA:

“Republicans can’t win the House back if their position on guns doesn’t change,” he added. “This is now a top two or three issue for swing voters in suburban districts and until Republicans break from the NRA, they’re not going to win back the seats that they lost in 2018.“

Shameful. We need to protect all of our rights and the constitutional structure to protect ourselves from the greedy and power-hungry to control our lives.
