Is the mainstream media biased against gun owners? You bet it is.
Are gun owners aware of this fact? Yes. Do we care? I suspect most of us dont. At this point, its pretty much expected.
With that said, we do get irked from time to time at the medias portrayal of gun owners, which frequently hews to the narrative that were all a bunch of paranoid zealots, blood-thirsty and pernicious, who horde supplies and hideout in subterranean bunkers awaiting a zombie apocalypse.
Naw, that might be overstating it. Its probably more accurate to say that the media propagates or reinforces some version of President Obamas notorious depiction of Middle America when talking about gun owners:
Its not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who arent like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations. - President Obama, 2008.
The implication one often sees in various media outlets is that theres an unhealthy bond between gun owners and their firearms, that were flawed or have some type of character defect for believing that individuals are personally responsible for their safety, that the Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms, that guns when placed in the right hands can save lives.
Below are seven examples that show media bias against gun owners.
Therefore it is important that this agenda be exposed. In a way, it is "bias" because most "progressives" are not introspective and do not attempt to determine their own motives or question their basic assumptions. They are exceptionally good at lying to themselves and ignoring information that does not promote their world view.
This disregard for truth and facts is at the heart of the "progressive" world view.
The so -called media polls showing 70% of the people in favor of gun control, get me riled. Had a friend that ran a phone room that did some polls, he would ask “what results do you want?” He would formulate the questions to get the intended results.
