How Meta

Fox News is reporting on the lack of reporting on guns after the landmark Heller and McDonald cases didn't bring blood to the streets of America.

They remark on how in Chicago and Washington the crime rates, specifically for murder and robbery, have declined at a faster rate than expected since gun control laws were struck down, but little to no mention of that is found in most news reporting at the national level.

If you pay attention to the MSM and you have a gun freedom twist to your rifling, this should come as no surprise to you.

Here are a few other things that aren't exactly being shouted from the rooftops by our village criers:

  • Project Fast and Furious, AKA GunWalker - Yes, Fox puts out information on it regularly.  And CBS has mentioned it, but it's definitely a page 3, under the fold kind of coverage.  The death of federal agents at the hands of foreign smugglers armed by the government should cause someone to be shrieking in large bold letters on page 1 of every newspaper in the country.  Brian Williams should be sputtering in rage and profanity on the NBC Evening News.  Nancy Grace should forget about the latest blonde cutie to go missing after a night of drinking to demand answers.  Nixon was impeached for obstructing the investigation of a burglary.  Clinton was impeached for lieing about an extramarital affair under oath.  Obama gets glamor shots of his backswing after his Justice Department perpetrated an act of war against a good neighbor that led to the death of American citizens.
  • Campus Carry - This is the first article I've seen on the subject on a national news platform.
  • TJIC and others who have their civil rights arbitrarily violated because some pissant decided they didn't like the cut of their jib.

And the list goes on and on.

Look, the media has been in the bag for the left leaning part of our society since well before I was born.  We have to take that into account in everything we say or do that might be reported in the worst possible light.  We have to expect that things that are important to us are going to be kept quiet unless we kick and scream for equal time.  Our reporting has to be better and more accurate than theirs every time, all the time.  It's just the way the game is played.

But I don't have to like it.

I havn't heard anything new on the TJIC incident. This happened right after I started blogging so I am curious.

I haven't either. I hope things are working out for him.
