Fast Forward to 5:40 in the Video Above to See Jim Forman’s Report. The Picture above is NOT Jim Forman
On Saturday’s Stinchfield Report on 570 KLIF, I took Seattle’s NBC affiliate to task for a very biased report on the gun debate in Oak Harbor Washington. You can hear my breakdown of King 5 Reporter Jim Forman’s story here.
You may remember when I first reported on the Oak Harbor controversy. The tiny Washington city banned concealed handgun license holders from carrying their weapons in city parks, even though the ordinance was a violation of Washington State law. City Councilman Rick Almberg made the ridiculous motion to have all CHL holders check their guns with police inside council chambers when a wounded Army vet spoke against the gun ban in parks. That motion was NOT passed.
Last week, the city overturned the gun ban in parks, but according to Jim Forman’s report on KING5 News, it had nothing to do with public outrage and only a city council that “Gave in to the gun lobby’s interest.” Forman made no mention of the dozens of city residents who called for the councilman’s resignation. He than ended his piece by saying, “as of tonight, it’s now legal to carry your guns in the playgrounds and parks of Oak Harbor.”
I explain why that statement alone is irresponsible and typical of the liberal media’s bias and penchant for exaggeration.
