Big 3 Networks Slant Gun News—Yet Again

posted on June 24, 2016

A story in Wednesday’s Washington Times reported that a new study reveals America’s three largest news networks took advantage of the recent Orlando terrorist attack to push their ill-concealed gun-ban agenda.

According to a Media Research Center analysis released this week, ABC, NBC and CBS used news coverage “to advance the preferred political line of the Democrats, in this election year, to push for more gun control.” Geoffrey Dickens, who led the research conducted June 12-17, wrote, “Broadcast network news programs flooded their shows with statements favoring gun control over gun rights by a ratio of 8 to 1.”

The study examined 57 different gun policy stories that followed the Orlando attack, and results indicate the coverage wasn’t even close to being even. “The study found a huge disparity in the airtime devoted to advancing more gun control versus arguments in favor of gun rights,” Dickens said, noting that the time spent in favor of more gun control was 65 minutes, compared to eight minutes spent on Second Amendment rights and other pro-gun issues.
