CNN Journalists Take Anti-Gun Stance

posted on December 22, 2015

Two CNN reporters, who last week said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), lacked “courage” for not demanding that Congress approve taxpayers’ dollars to fund activist anti-gun research, just proved how anti-gun they truly are.

Despite the attitude of many in the so-called “mainstream” media that they occupy some sort of moral high ground on every issue under the sun, by calling out Dr. Frieden, CNN reporters Elizabeth Cohen and John Bonifield were insinuating that there’s no possible reason for opposing something so “common sense” as gun control, other than “cowardice.”

As NRA-ILA pointed out in a grassroots alert over the weekend, Dr. Frieden declined to take Cohen’s and Bonifield’s bait. But had he responded to them, he might have asked why they were “silent” about the CDC’s massive study of a variety of gun control restrictions, published in 2003, which concluded that “[e]vidence was insufficient to determine the effectiveness of any of these laws.”
