Default Media bias

From a CNN article about the hunt for Christopher Jordan Dorner.

http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/ass...al-gallery.jpg

Caption: "San Diego Harbor Police officers near Naval Base Point Loma armed with high-powered firearms walk along a street on February 7 in San Diego."

When cops use an semi-auto AR, it's a "high-powered firearm." If a civilian has the same gun, it's an assault weapon.

I showed this photo to the cops I know, who were Marines, they shook their heads at why these guys are holding their rifles like idiots.

CNN and MSNBC may have their downfalls, but at least they don't alter footage of the opposing party to make them look ugly and put wrong footage when describing rallies so as to make it look bigger. Fox news is the worst if you're talking about media bias.

Well, that's why I don't watch or read Fox News.

You are entitled to your opinion, however, I must point out that your statement reeks of brainwashing from the Leftist media outlets. Groups like Huffington Post, MoveOn.org have for years smeared Fox. Heck. Only the LEFT WING actually goes to the effort to create fake websites like Faux News or Drudge Retort in attempts to keep people from seeing the channels and voices that they oppose.

You unfortunately have drunk the Kool-aid.

There are Tons and tons more examples of the Liberal Media doing that than Fox.

For example, there were several hundred pro gun people supporting a gun store near the SF area in a rally. there were less than a dozen ANTI GUN protestors who showed up. WHO did CBS interview only? Of course only the Anti gun protestors who were in fact 'counter protestors' since they were there in response to a pro gun rally. I have never seen so much imbalance and bias on the part of the left in the media in my entire life.

The only smart man looks at all outlets fairly and comes to their own conclusion.

I don't like Fox News because bigot news anchors don't sit well with me.

Fox isn't the only one with bigotted news anchors.

All three of the major 24 hour news channels, and all three of the cable news "reporters" are guilty of that.

Hell, the best reporting about America comes from the BBC.

Ain't that the truth, as unbelievable as it is.

Not as good as the recent UCF not-shooter. For those who don't know, a UCF student packed up some guns and IEDs in his dorm, pulled the fire alarm to lure everyone outside....then had a change of heart and shot himself before doing anything.

The media constantly talked about how he had an "assault rifle". Aside from two or three handguns, his only other gun was a GSG 522. As in a .22LR semi-auto clone of the MP5 that can accept airsoft accessories.

Ah, yes, I was sleeping off a hangover when the story broke, and woke up to about a dozen text messages asking what a "tactical .22" was.
