Thank God for Gun Blogs: ABC, CBS, NBC Slant 8 to 1 for Obama’s Gun Control Crusade

Media Research Center (MRC) analysts reviewed all 216 gun policy stories on the Big Three networks’ evening (ABC’s World News, CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News) and morning show programs (ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, NBC’s Today), beginning with the evening of the shooting through January 17, the morning after Obama made his speech surrounded by children who had sent him letters pushing for more gun control.

The results show staggering imbalance:

  • Stories advocating more gun control outnumbered stories opposing gun control by 99 to 12, or a ratio of 8 to 1.
  • Anti-gun soundbites were aired almost twice as frequently than pro-gun ones (228 to 134).
  • Gun control advocates appeared as guests on 26 occasions, compared to 7 times for gun rights advocates.

  1. I had an argument with 2 retards (in laws) before Christmas. They claimed that private citizens NEVER have used a gun for home defense. I told them there are dozens of cases every month in the US. They had never read about any of them, so they said that wasn’t true.
    I know you can’t argue with a retard, they’ll beat you with stupid…and you’ll never win.

    1. You should find those video clips from police calls where murder happens to those without guns and the ones that have guns saving their own lives. It’s chilling, I know I got goosebumps from both types of calls.

        1. Lil,
          I’ll see if I can find them again, the two I’m thinking about were very chilling. I think if most heard these things that are very real with very real results, they might think differently.
