MRC: "ABC, CBS, NBC Slant 8 to 1 for Obama's Gun Control Crusade"

The Media Research Center shows an overwhelming bias in the reporting on recent gun issues by ABC, CBS, and NBC.  Here is the main summary:
■ 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. 
CBS was the most stridently anti-gun rights network. By a whopping 22 to 1 ratio, CBS aired more stories that favored gun control (44) to those that supported gun rights (2), with 37 neutral pieces. ABC aired almost six times as many stories that favored gun control (29) to those that favored gun rights, with 25 neutral stories. NBC pushed for more gun control in 26 of their stories to just 5 that tilted in favor of gun rights for a 5 to 1 ratio, with 43 neutral segments. . . .

President clinton has sex with a cute young thing and they want him to step down, "W" "listens in" inapropriately and folks are up in arms, and now Obama KILLS a 16 YEAR OLD US Citizen in cold blood because he didn't choose his father well (not to mention his friend, also a teenager)and had the misfortune to be overseas. And, what happens? Does he get an "attaboy!" from his friends at CNN, New York Times, Washinton Post, LA Times, MediaMatters, etc., etc. Is this the NEW "common sense"? Does he have "majority support" on this too?
As I 'posted' earlier - "What's the world comming to? IT'S ALREADY THERE!"
