The Media Refuses to Cover Pro-Gun Newtown Parent

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.

    This sentence here shows that you either don’t really understand progressive positions or that you are disingenuous. So either intentionally or not you are spouting nonsense.

    Jesus Christ; where do I start?

    Grant Stinchfield claims “The liberal media wants you to believe that EVERY Newtown parent wants more gun control”. Nobody in media has said any such thing. And if Grant has any proof of his claim, he should release it to the public, and what ever organization his evidence condemns, will be out of business by the end of the month. But Grant will not do that, because his claim is only true in his imagination. You can’t shove words down somebody’s throat, and then criticize those words. Especially when you made them up.

    Grant Stinchfield says pro gun, father of Sandy-hook victom, Mark Mattioli is not getting acceptable quantity of air-time on the evening news. And Grant also says he agrees with the pro gun rhetoric of Mark Mattioli. And Grant is mad that the nightly news is not pushing his political agenda. Grant says ” Mark Mattioli deserves to be heard, because his opinions count.” I find it odd that a former reporter thinks the nightly news is supposed to push his political agenda. That is the goal of the NRA, and similar groups; not the world news with Diane Sawyer.

      Adrian, I respectfully submit that the ONLY agenda being pushed is the Obama agenda! Gun control would not have stopped a wacko like Lonza. Even if guns had been totally banned, someone like him would have found another way…. like setting a fire, or even bombs! Also the media does infer that ALL Newtown victimized families want more gun control – while not saying it in those exacts terms, they certainly lead the public to believe their terrible loss can be mitigated by legislated stricter gun control which is a lie.

      Adrian,
      Answer something for me.

      For what reason are the parents of Sandy Hook victims standing beside Obama when he addressed his (failed) gun control bill? Why did they follow-up the president’s spiel with their own comments?

      You don’t have to answer, it is rhetorical…
