    Anyone in the MSM media who have been there for more than a week knows the drill, and if they want to keep their job, they are told to SHUT UP, and tell us what THEY want to tell us.

    RICHARD M. COHAN, Senior Producer of CBS political news said: "We are going to impose OUR AGENDA on the coverage by dealing with the issues and subjects WE choose to deal with."

    RICHARD SALANT, former President of CBS News stated: "Our job is to give people not what they want, but what WE decide they ought to have."

    As John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff for the New York Times, was one of America's best loved newspapermen. Called by his peers "The Dean of his Profession", John was asked in 1953 to give a toast before the New York Press Club, and in so doing made a monumentally important and revealing statement. He is quoted as follows:

    "There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
    What is your point? You talked a lot about everything except what the thread is about "Checkout how CNN treats marine who wrote letter.."

    Was she disrespectful? Did she keep interupteing him? I commented on how he was treated and he was not treated badly.

    A very articulate gentleman.

    The fight is coming, gun owners will have to choose a side. There are no cheap seats in the coming fight.

    She asked direct and specific questions and he responded with direct and specific answers. I saw no problem with either side. If this is what some of you are calling one-sided media coverage you need to do some more looking.

    'This crap is making me really irritated. How many times do we have to point out that the problem is NOT a gun problem; it is a MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEM.
    We need to keep guns, as well a knives, box cutters, explosives, etc., out of the hands of crazy people. All this focus on pistol grips on a rifle or how many rounds in a magazine is so incredibly stupid that it displays the gross incompetence of lawmakers and new reporters. How fast can you swap a magazine. I'm only MM in IDPA and I can do it in about a second. I'mg getting weary of explaining to my non-carry friends that there are NO simple answers to complex problems.

    Realizing that I am new around here and I am somewhat sensitive to start out on a hot topic but I wanted to make a point that he made and I wished that he would have hammered it more.

    I don't believe strenghtening our mental health system, putting arm guards in schools or more gun control laws on the books is the answer. The answer is "there will always be evil" in our society. The government is inept at protection. Protection of my family is my responsibility and I cannot farm that out to local LEO or to the army. If some choose to carry a knife or a bat then that is their choice but many see otherwise.

    I believe it is coming too. What it is and how bad it will be is the remaining unanswered question.

    Seems the focus is solely on the evil AR's. Don't forget she wants to cut your pistol mag size by about half, too. Essentially robbing you of that many more life savers for feel good reasons. Better get used to carrying extra mags etc. If the SHTF and you live long enough you may need it.

    The focus isn't only on AR's. They want anything semi-auto with magazines over 10 rounds. Or as they put it, "a fixed magazine", which technically is incorrect if they want AR's and your Glock 17. They have removable magazines.

    However, once they get "one" law to pass...the next one will follow. They want them "ALL", and like Mr. Boston said, "unconstitutional laws are not laws".

    ^My point would simply be^^^^^

    That when someone you interview, gives you common sense, logical answers, you can either sit there and begin to see the light a bit, or you can sit there and act like a Piers Morgan wanna-be.

    The main point was that it matters not how these talking heads appear on the outside, they are no different than the slick criminals who prey on society, who appear like they mean you no ill will, then they are on you like white on rice, with their own agenda.
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    OK...still don't see how that applies to how the reporter treated the young man. See what ya saying but it don't make her a hypocrit. Her job is to not see the light from a 4 minute interview. She can have her own personal opinions....whatever.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

    He did very well, and she was fine too. Her questions were logical and she chose not to argue where argument would have served no purpose. My only criticism of him would be that the shifting of his eyes during his thought process, which nearly everyone does, detracts from his authority and gravitas. On the other hand it lends him the air of "the common man" which tends to strengthen the notion that he represents the rest of us. All-in-all, he did great.
