False media claims that Fox News was trying to hide discussions on gun control

Gabe Sherman at New York magazine created quite a stir when he wrote that Fox News said that "it is too soon to talk the politics of gun control" the day of the Newtown elementary school attack.  
Much was being made online Monday about a decision by Fox News Channel to avoid discussion of gun control in the wake of multiple killings at a Connecticut elementary school. An e-mail “edict,” as some have put it, from a Fox News executive who didn’t want the topic discussed over the weekend has even been making the rounds. 
One problem with that narrative, though: Fox News insiders say it isn’t true and that, in fact, both sides of the gun-control debate were represented many times throughout the weekend’s programming. . . .
