    She's a hireling, nothing more. But she's treated like a national treasure by those with vested interests in her continuing to do her dirty-work.

    The truly ugly part of it all is: she keeps getting voted back in; and the damage keeps getting done. At the end of the day, the People are to blame.

    CNN/Communist Nations Network is pathetic. Save yourselves from HighBlood pressure by steering clear from this Network..

    I think she did a great job - and he did a very good job in return.

    1. She wasn't combative. Moreover, she seemed to be respectful of him and didn't try any "trap questions." That doesn't mean she didn't ask a couple tough questions, or correct him when he stated something that she had more information about, but that's being a good journalist.

    2. She also threw up a number of softball questions for him to hit out of the park. He missed on none of them, and his last answer was a grand slam. "Unconstitutional laws are not laws."

    3. The only bias in this piece was the first picture of him standing in front of a bunch of guns. The rest of them, were him as a soldier.

    4. Here's where she actually earned my respect: she began wrapping up the segment and he started to say something else. She stopped and gave him time to speak without interruption, then engaged him again, instead of blowing the comment off like it wasn't worth listening too.

    All in all, it's probably the closest I've seen to non-biased journalism on gun control yet.

    Mr.Boston

    Is it just me or did I miss the fact of the reporter not thanking Mr.Boston for his service to this country? What a disrespectful vermin. She obviously did NOT agree with him on anything. I'll be you if something bad happened to her she would be begging for a weapon to defend herself with.

    I agree. She was very very "Snooty" against his views and answers. No moron could argue that one.

    Does that REALLY bother you...frankly I am annoyed with the constant "thanking of my service" from folks I don;t know, don't know me, or otherwise doing it because it is the "in" thing to do. No one thanked me for my service before 9/11 and it did not bother me then.

    I understand that some folks need that and that is cool. Everyone is different. If the marine is offended he can speak for himself. I woould not want you t lose any sleep about it if I was th eone up there and no one thanked me.......just not a big deal and leave it to the individual. Besides,,,how do yo know she did not do it before or after. Did it have to be in your presecence?

    Soory if that was snarky LOL

    EDIT: I did not know it was her job to agree with him on anything.........
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    I could be wrong here, but early on, one poster mentioned "Hypocracy"---I think he was NOT refering to the reporter, but was was calling Sen. Feinstein a hypocrite for having armed guards and her own Calif. CCL yet engaging in all the anit-gun rhetoric. (I may be mistaken)

    Not entirely true.
    As a conservative, I am not so blind to see that ALL media outlets have a agenda..Yes; even FOX.

    Getting to the truth is difficult if we depend on the media to tell us what it is.

    It does an American citizen proud to see a Marine defending America against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC.
