And so do the advocates of greater controls on guns.

Such as what? The BS media, including the NY Post have simply lost their minds, whatever was left of them, about so called "assault weapons" and high cap mags.

See how long it takes to replace a magazine.

Most of the so-called journalists listed in the article are hacks, “lookers”, lightweights and airheads. Some, like O’Donnell, an avowed socialist, are just crazy (like his former MSNBC brother Olbermann, and Schulz and Chrissy Matthews).

Rationality, thoughtful discussion, full knowledge of the subject under discussion, and the ability to hear the other person’s point of view is not only sadly lacking, it is apparently company policy NOT to have any of them on a show.

Piers Morgan is just a disgrace, and an abusive one at that. No wonder he was fired from a major English publication and failed at TV. He’s a typical leftwing British fop who thinks that his English accent is a substitute for rational gray matter.

Lemon - jerk. O’Brien - airhead. And the list goes on. We used to call Katie Couric “the perky turkey” and it wasn’t about her journalism skills. She let her good looks go to her head and missed the part about using her brain in a professional manner.

The same for Matt Lauer, a legend in his own warped mind. He’d last about a minute in Nam. Stupid people didn’t last long there unless they had their company’s cover. Just look at those from CBS and you’ll know what I mean (Rather, Webster, Safer).

Journalism, like everything else that the Left/Liberals have touched, has been degraded into a Grade Z movie with a cast of thousands and no stars worthy of note.

People thought that “Plan 9 From Outer Space” was a terrible movie. I once told Plan 9 actor Conrad Brooks that the movie wasn’t just bad, it stank, and he laughed because he knew that it was really a 5 cent spoof of a scifi story.

Our media today are even worse, but on purpose. That is the tragedy of America, and they aren’t even worth 5 cents.

“You are an unbelievably stupid man”

A few years back when America was a real country, a statement like that to a man would be an invitation to get a can of Whoop-ass opened on you.

Quite frankly, Byron, our 2nd Amendment is not open for debate.

See, we are already letting the left set the narrative.

If journalists could somehow control their emotions and their biases, there might be a far more reasoned debate in the press.

If journalists want to impress 'the people' they should do it by example. Journalists of the MSM should fire the 'armed' guards that protect their buildings and workers. They should drop the paranoia, open the place up and celebrate the bullsh*t they're trying to push on the rest of us.

That's not going to happen. It's not going to happen because newspapers and the MSM live and work in the same crappy world liberals have created for all citizens of the United States.

Journalists work behind walls protected by guards posted at the door. Those guards are armed. In the darkest part of their corrupt little hearts, journalist know the score - they 'get' the truth of the new normal... Ever wonder about those badges they wear? It identifies them so they can cover a story and get past a police line - but it also gets them into the building they work in... They know the truth.

Journalists feel guns that protect them are 'different'. Different because they're bought and paid for by their company. They're wrong. It's protection ... period. We can talk - we can reason - but only when they take their blinders off...

There is one thing very glaringly absent from any of these pieces about how the media is dealing with this issue......and it is very obvious in this piece.

The media (I will not call any of them journalists) are hiding behind the 1st amendment while attacking supporters of the 2nd..............

The conversation we should be having here, every time one of them calls for “reasonable restrictions” is what reasonable restrictions are they willing to accept on the 1st amendment????????????

The conceit of “journalistic objectivity” is an invention of the Associated Press. The AP produces uniformity, and calls uniformity “objectivity.”

"We need to get guns and bullets and automatic weapons off the streets," Lemon said. "They should only be available to police officers and to hunt al-Qaeda and the Taliban and not hunt elementary school children."

Yet another "journalist" demonstrating the reason for the tagline...
