Is ABC Biased?

Scanning over the comments in my last post, it seems that many consider ABC News to be biased in their reporting. That may be so. The NRA is wanting to give oversight of the facts and numbers submitted, and then, there is this John Stossel piece from January 23, 2003, on 20/20.

I too would think that ABC were fishing for information they could present in a bias manner. Thankfully there are still journalists in this country who are able to present FACTS.

Let's be sure not to misrepresent the facts, though.

I'm something of a scientist of Criminal Justice, I guess. (I practice it, I study it, and get degrees in it, I work on advanced degrees in it.) Other than Lott, nobody is finding much to show that guns REDUCE crime.

But the findings very clearly show that the right to carry, and the right to possess guns do not RAISE crime, either.

So if there's no effect across the board, why deny citizens their God-given and Constitutional right to keep and bear arms? Answer: we (as a people controlling our government) should not infringe upon that right, with regard to free citizens. There is no justification.

MSM is a psuedonym for LIE. Remember when John Stossel got the crap beat out of him by WWE wrestlers a decade ago when he a.) opened his mouth and b.) said the wrong thing and the 300 pound exterminator behind him didn't care for it? What a lyin' wuss. He makes Barbara Walters look manly.
