No MSM Bias? What A Crock…

So, Neil Heslin, father to one of the young victims of the Sandy Hook atrocity, states “The problem is not gun laws. Need personal responsibility, accountability and civility.” However, what gets the mainstream media’s attention, is a purported “heckle” as he spoke.
Except its all bullshit!
Firstly, the video showing the “heckling” had been edited, so that responses made after a few seconds of silence, following his statement and his questioning of the need of “military style weapons” were made to look like interruptions.
Secondly, he had asked a question and people were responding, not heckling.
Thirdly, this narrative has been pushed from the moment it “broke” Monday night, right through Tuesday. In fact, even after raw footage had been publicized, showing the proper order of events, a few people in the MSM were still pushing the false narrative.
Its crap like this that makes me shake my head when people say there’s no media bias. Its this kind of crap that makes me fear for the future of this country. After all, if the media can be so in lock-step with an administration’s agenda – in this case, gun control, which has been an aim of the Obama administration since its (deliberately?) shoddy attempt to resurrect Operation Wide Receiver, in the guise of the Fast And Furious operation – how can we trust them with their reporting on any subject.
I always thought journalists were supposed to record and report the facts. I guess what we have now is more PRAVDA, than Pulitzer…
