Politico says the outrage people witnessed in Obama when gun control failed to pass on Wednesday was nothing compared to the outrage expressed by certain members of the press.
“Even by the standards of today’s partisan media,” said Politico, the outrage was “noteworthy.”
Accordingly, “television hosts, editorial boards, and even some reporters have aggressively criticized and shamed the 46 Senators who opposed the plan, while some have taken to actively soliciting the public to contact them directly.”
The New York Daily News took this tact–publishing a photo of each of the 46 Senators, with a corresponding phone number beside each photo that citizens could call and file complaints.
Politico asked Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol to explain why the media literally came unglued following the failed gun control vote, and he said: “I guess the liberal media get annoyed when Senators listen to their constituents and think for themselves, rather than doing the media’s bidding.”
Because of this, Politico intimates that the mainstream media’s post-gun debate behavior leads Americans to lump all media together as “equally disconnected from the true American worldview.”
Perhaps someone should post photos of George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and the other Founders who risked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to secure 2nd Amendment rights for us all?
