MRC: “ABC, CBS, NBC Slant 8 to 1 for Obama’s Gun Control Crusade” | John Lott’s Website

The Media Research Center shows an overwhelming bias in the reporting on recent gun issues by ABC, CBS, and NBC. Here is the main summary:

■ Stories advocating more gun control outnumbered stories opposing gun control by 99 to 12, or a ratio of 8 to 1.

■ Anti-gun soundbites were aired almost twice as frequently than pro-gun ones (228 to 134).

■ Gun control advocates appeared as guests on 26 occasions, compared to 7 times for gun rights advocates.

CBS was the most stridently anti-gun rights network. By a whopping 22 to 1 ratio, CBS aired more stories that favored gun control (44) to those that supported gun rights (2), with 37 neutral pieces. ABC aired almost six times as many stories that favored gun control (29) to those that favored gun rights, with 25 neutral stories. NBC pushed for more gun control in 26 of their stories to just 5 that tilted in favor of gun rights for a 5 to 1 ratio, with 43 neutral segments. . . .

    Honestly, the MSM is little more than a propaganda machine for the wingnut control freaks who miss no opportunity to take away or liberties.
