91. Of course not. The media defends the First Amendment ...

and hates the Second.

Everyone knows that the pen is more powerful than the sword. Unfortunately many in the media often use their pen in an irresponsible manner. I suspect that true honesty in reporting is a subject often ignored in journalism classes.

Since it is hard to put a negative anti gun spin on a story like "Gun carrying man ends stabbing spree at Salt Lake grocery store", the national media simply ignores it. It's hard to portray the man with the firearm as a blood thirsty vigilante that will help the media's agenda which states allowing honest citizens to carry firearms is a foolish idea.

Even the local media failed to mention if the shooter had a concealed carry permit. He is simply described as, "a citizen with a gun."
