Journalists Learn Anti-Gun Bias From The Best

posted on June 1, 2015

Michael Bloomberg and Everytown funded a two-day “workshop” in Phoenix, Ariz., over the weekend, sponsored by Columbia University’s Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma. While the event was supposedly intended to educate journalists about topics pertaining to “guns and gun violence,” you’d be correct if you guessed that attendees were mostly getting educated on one side of the issue.

Of the 17 panelists, 15 were gun-control advocates. The only pro-gun speakers were journalist S.E. Cupp and legal expert Dave Kopel, who was limited to covering Second Amendment history. Plus, the only law enforcement officers participating appeared to have been cherry-picked for their pro-gun-control stance. While none of this is surprising, it’s depressing to see how little a distinguished institution like Columbia cares about even pretending to be unbiased.
