Accuracy in Media

On Tuesday, during a discussion of what steps Congress is considering in the wake of the tragic school shooting in Connecticut last week, MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts asked Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) if Americans “need to just be complacent in the fact that we can send our children to school to be assassinated?”

Thomas RobertsRoberts was responding to Kingston’s reminder that despite some of the strictest gun control laws in the world, Germany and Norway still had incidences of mass shootings, while the Czech Republic has relatively lax gun control laws and has not experienced this type of shooting.

Kingston also decried Roberts’ attempt to politicize the mass shooting in Connecticut by asking him if he could put his politics aside when it came to any legislation that may be introduced, considering his “A” rating from the NRA.

Roberts, like the rest of the mainstream media, have jumped all over the tragedy in Connecticut and tried to use it as an example of why we need tougher gun laws. But as Kingston pointed out, Connecticut has the fifth toughest gun control laws in the U.S. and the guns used in the shooting were stolen.

Gun control laws have proven largely ineffective at preventing violent crime, but that isn’t stopping Roberts and the rest of the mainstream media from reacting to what happened in Connecticut in typical knee-jerk fashion.

    When there’s an agenda to push, those pushing never let facts get in the way.

    I’d walk in to correct them but I fear being bruised by the jerking knees.

  • The MSM will play this like a fiddle a long as they can to get ratings.

    Guns kill. The GOP and its NRA protect and promote gun use. Hence, the GOP is complicit in gun killings. End of case.

    Guns are just tools, like cars, knives, and baseball bats. You will never see a world where a deranged person doesn’t choose the most effective method of killing and also doesn’t chose to be more heavily armed than others. That is the case here, a disparity of armament.
