    I don't like either of them but Stewart is correct about the mis information that was being given out by CNN. The NYT is still saying an AR 15 was used when in fact it wasn't not.

    Who the hell is Piers Morgan to come over here and tell us colonists how to run the damn country? How did he get that CNN gig anyway? Does he have photographs of someone there?

    Hard to argue w/ Stewart on that take. Cable news does us a great disservice. It may be difficult to overstate this.

    Here's Stewart's commentary -- both funny and accurate:

    Because the gun control crowds want to outlaw "assault rifles." If the shooter used an AR-15, it works in perfectly with their narrative.

    On the other hand, if the shooter used a shotgun, which is probably last in line of the should-be-illegal firearms, it destroys their entire narrative.

    It's similar to why certain race pimps were dying to label Zimmerman a White racist.

    Hey folks, the facts do not matter anymore.

    It is all about the emotion of the thing, whatever it is.

    You think? Take a tactical shotgun load it with 9 rounds of #00 buckshot and you have a weapon that can fire 81 .33" (roughly 9mm) lead shots in about 20-30 seconds. I can see banning that long before banning something like a 5 round .38 revolver.

    And of course there's always the Saiga-12 shotgun which you can fit with a 20 or 30 round drum. It's not your grandpa's double barrel shotgun filled with rock salt.

    An ethical journalist does not knowingly distort the news because of a tight deadline or because filler is needed.

    Why are you ignoring that the liberal dominated media has an agenda to rebuild society into a liberal utopia?

    You think only "liberal media" does this?

    I guess that works if you ignore the conservative media's attempt to claim that this only happened because Clinton issued a executive order that made military bases gun-free zones.
    Completely false, of course. But that hasn't stopped conservatives from claiming it over and over.

    Exactly! Who the hell is he? He's foreign entertainment jockey... he's not a relevant newsman.

    link

    there were plenty more according to a quick google search but they pretty much all told the same story. Clinton hadn't even been elected president yet when the directive was put in place

    Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 5210.56

    There is no journalism on television.

    Remember that and you'll be good.

    Please note that the media is dominated by way more liberals than conservatives.

    I left the conservative media out of my comments because this board already knows how corrupt the conservative media is. It is way past time to expose the the left side of media.

    http://www.westernjournalism.com/top-50-examples-liberal-media-bias/

    I tried to be fair on this post here a liberal link

    http://www.examiner.com/article/50-politically-biased-sources-not-to-get-your-news-from

    Can anyone spot the differences in the two links?
    I am not just referring to what was said in the above listed quotes. That was just fluff. You need to read both articles to see that there are two distinct themes in both articles.
