Well, it's not all bad. From the second link:


On Tuesday, Jesse Jackson, the Brady bunch -- not the TV folk but the anti-gun lobby -- and other liberal activists rallied against “the national scourge of illegal guns” in cities around the nation.

The networks ignored the event, probably because turnout was so embarrassingly low. The Chicago Tribune reported that “about 200” piled out of three buses in Lake Barrington, Illinois, the Chicago-area protest keynoted by Jackson himself. The Philadelphia Inquirer said “about 200” showed up in Philly. The Dallas Morning News reported about 60 demonstrators in South Dallas, and AP said “about 100”attended the Washington, D.C. event held in nearby District Heights, Maryland.


:rofl2:

I think that the Katrina diaster showed people just how fragile the "police protection" scheme. It showed them that they need to be able to protect themselves from criminals because when government disappears there isn't anyone else to rely upon.

This is becoming more evident in the larger cities which have gang violence problems that the police cannot control for several reasons (gang problems allow for more money for more police so more gangs means more money. A viscious circle.)

so do you think this study will get as much airtime as the 90 guns per 100 people study?? :43:

Who CMI is, and who David Neidraur is.That's easy. Here (http://www.mediaresearch.org/press/2006/press20061018.asp) some info on CMI and its founders and mission. As to Niedraur, the CMI document says that he had just finished an internship with them. I think it's likely that the "study" was the subject of that internship.

I guess as for the rest, the "study" speaks for itself.

For something to be exposed, doesn't it have be hidden in the first place?

EXACTLY! Sounds like they wasted their money to me.

"Documented," then.

It's one thing to recognize that the news is often biased based on anecdotal evidence; quite another to be able to clearly and precisely articulate that understanding based on representative data.
