The liberal media wants you to believe that EVERY Newtown parent wants more gun control. That is a fallacy. Bias comes in all forms, from twisting the truth to simply telling half the story. When the main stream media refuses to cover an important voice just because it doesn’t want you to hear that voice, it not only does a disservice to society, but it further disintegrates the dwindling faith we had left in the major networks and newspapers.
Mark Mattioli lost his 6 year old son James at Sandy Hook. The liberal media doesn’t want you to know that Mattioli firmly believes more gun laws will NOT make us any safer. I agree with him. By failing to adequately give Mattioli air-time on the evening news, viewers are not getting the full picture. As a former reporter, my goal was always to tell both sides of the story so the viewer could decide what is right and wrong. In most cases, I didn’t agree with one side of the story, but that never stopped me from telling it. It appears to me, more and more media outlets want to decide what is right for YOU, instead of letting YOU decide for yourself. That notion is at the heart of the progressive movement, “we know what’s best for you better than you do.”
We see that same level of contempt for the public at all levels of government. Mark Mattioli deserves to be heard, because his opinions count.
