39. The right thread, and I'm worried you can't see that

The whole purpose of the OP is to say that The Newsroom should be attacking Obama for being 'anti-gun'. Read their words again - I'll highlight the anti-Obama message that is the core, since you couldn't see it:

I just finished watching "The Newsroom" on HBO (Season 1, Episode 4, I'll Try to Fix You).

McAvoy, the anchor, has a one-sided but at least mostly true on-air rant where he "proves" that Sarah Palin, the NRA and others have no basis for thinking Obama is anti-gun and wants to ban guns. After all, by carefully ignoring Obama's published and well known anti-gun positions before he became president, you can show that he is a gun rights champion. He is, according to McAvoy's analysis, "the best friend the NRA has ever had."
