More Left-Wing anti-gun bias from the media

Via Bearing Arms

WFSB reporter Kate Rayner was quick to dramatically label a defensive gun use in Hartford, Connecticut as an example of “some serious road rage” in her heavily biased video report.

Even the slightly more measured print report was constructed in such a way as to clearly show disdain for the actions of a man who saved his life with a handgun:

A homeowner who shot a driver this morning will not face charges.

Police say the shooting happened around 2 a.m. on Newberry Street in Hartford. The homeowner was trying to pull into his driveway, when two other drivers blocking the way, refused to move their vehicles.

Following a verbal altercation, officials say one of the drivers pointed a gun at the homeowner. The homeowner, reached for his own gun and fired first.

Police say the homeowner is a licensed gun owner, and he will not face charges.

The driver who was shot was taken to the hospital for treatment. According to police, both he and the other driver were arrested.

Law enforcement agrees that the homeowner who shot in self-defense was entirely in the right, and that the two jerks blocking the road were entirely in the wrong.

That seems to matter little to WFSB, who seem entirely apoplectic that a citizen dared defend his life with a firearm.

Road rage? Road rage? Really lady? I think the intellectually honest words you should use are self-defense

Far be it from me to tell NBC how to spend their money, but……….

….if they want to throw money around to find out why no one watches Meet the Press anymore, I am very affordable, certainly more affordable than any “consultant”.

The Washington Post reports that NBC hired a “psychological consultant” to interview David Gregory as part of a desperate effort to find out why ratings for Meet the Press have fallen to their lowest point ever — as in,since 1947.

As The Other McCain points out, the first problem is David Gregory himself. He is smug, and boring. The second problem is that shows like Meet the Press are dinosaurs, their time has passed. They are boring, stale, pretentious, and oh yeah, BORING! You want ratings? Hire someone interesting, and funny to host. No, not like Stephen Colbert, who is neither funny or interesting, I mean someone who actually makes people laugh but who can also make political points. Greg Gutfeld or Andrew Klavan come to mind.  Next have some guests that are not BORING and who do not come across as obnoxious and snobbish. In short make the show fun to watch. David Gregory? NOT FUN!

Finally, you need to remember that sex sells. Along with the funny, engaging host, try getting a co-host who is, how shall I put this, HOT! No, I do not mean a bimbo, I mean an intelligent woman whose smile and beautiful face just happens to make me stay tuned. There are MANY choices there. And it does not even matter what her politics are. It matters that she is HOT. If you ask me, right now your top choices there would Tamron Hall, Robin Meade, or Brooke Baldwin. I do not know their political leanings, but they are, smart, engaging, and oh yes, HOT!

My point is, make the show interesting rather than coma-inducing. NBC you have to be honest, who would you rather listen to, Gregory, who has the sense of humor of a clam, or Klavan or Gutfeld who are both very funny. See EASY choice there. Now, ask yourself who Americans want to look at, Gregory, who looks like a complete tool, sorry, he does, or one of these three? Yeah, I thought so
