USA Today Gives Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America The Microphone. Literally.

 

 

USA Today Anti-Gun

 

 

 

USA Today is as anti-gun as they come. To be fair, the McPaper sometimes gives the pro-gun side column equal time in dueling editorials, including me. But most of the time USA Today has no interest in being fair. This video piece and printed article on Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America’s visit to Capitol Hill highlights the editors’ willingness to bias their reports for the bloody shirt wavers seeking civilian disarmament – regardless of the fact that the empress has no clothes. For example . . .

  The headline: Moms flock to Capitol Hill to demand gun control. How many Moms makes a flock, pray tell? The video says “more than 100.” I’m not seeing it, you? What I am seeing: a reporter who hands Shannon and her minions the microphone and lets them make pronouncements, rather than respond to interviews. That’s not what I – or any self-respecting member of the profession – call journalism. It’s what I call unfiltered anti-gun agitprop.”

Did George Zimmerman get away with murder? That’s what one of his jurors says, according to headlines in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and dozens of other newspapers. Trayvon Martin’s mother and the Martin family’s attorney are trumpeting this “new information” as proof that “George Zimmerman literally got away with murder.”

The reports are based on an ABC News interview with Juror B29, the sole nonwhite juror.

ABC News hasn’t posted a full unedited video or transcript of the interview. The video that has been broadcast—on World News Tonight, Nightline, and Good Morning America—has been cut and spliced in different ways, often so artfully that the transitions appear continuous. So beware what you’re seeing. But the video that’s available already shows, on closer inspection, that Maddy has been manipulated and misrepresented. Here are the key points.”
