Media personalities are people. They are allowed their own belief systems. While asking for a purely unbiased perspective in media may be impossible, it seems that asking journalists to behave as objective professionals is simply too much for them to bear. As a result, Americans are constantly treated to news with a dedicated leftist spin.
In a most frustrating manner, these propagandists all-too-often masquerade as purveyors of facts and truths. In reality, however, modern journalism is pathetically biased.
Every once in a while, however, liberal feelings boil-over and liberal reporters drop the act and the pretense that they are anything but pure advocates instead of journalists.
On Thursday, the hosts of CBS This Morning dropped the act and bemoaned Congress’ unwillingness to surrender Second Amendment liberties to those who scream in hysteria after a tragedy.
CBS host Norah O’Donnell appeared outraged when she cited Sandy Hook as a reason why anti-Second Amendment legislation should have already been enacted and claimed that America’s policies on guns “borders on the irrational.”
If that’s not the pot calling the kettle black, I don’t know what is…
“Biden said President Obama told him the Sandy Hook shooting was maybe the saddest day of our administration,” O’Donnell said. “I’ve heard the president say that.”
Gayle King chimed-in, saying, “I checked with a Sandy Hook parent yesterday that said when they heard about the Orlando shooting, it just makes you numb and sad and angry all over again.”
Joining the chorus of “journalists” who belief hysteria should trump reason, veteran media personality Charlie Rose opined, “And you remember at that time, we thought maybe there would be change, but it didn’t happen.”
Both O’Donnell and King muttered in agreement.
“Yes, Charlie,” King said. “And if it doesn’t happen with the little children that were slaughtered in their classrooms with their baby teeth, what is it going to take? I don’t understand how high the death toll has to go, but maybe, just maybe, there will be a change.”
This is what happens when liberals live in their bubbles. King, herself, recently revealed that she lives in a bubble as she was amazed that people were still upset over Hillary’s treason when she knew nobody in her inner circle who was bothered by her emails.
Speaking with an absolutist tone with unwavering support for unspecified gun control proposals, these hacks likely never considered that their viewers could have a different perspective or even a more-nuanced understanding of the situation other than “dead people should equal more gun laws.”
If these advocates were interested in a substantive conversation about the issue of gun control, they would have offered a very-legitimate counterpoint. Someone would have asked, “Yeah, but what gun law would have stopped Orlando? Or stopped Sandy Hook? Or stopped Aurora, Roseburg, or any other mass shooting?”
Of course, asking such a question would shine a light directly on the incredibly-flimsy narrative crafted by Democrats that infringing upon the rights of law-abiding Americans is the only way to deter criminals who are okay with murder, but who are supposedly unwilling to break firearm statutes.
