Hit piece on Barrett by News 5 Nashville

Postby 1gewehr » Tue Feb 05, 2013 12:25 pm

Another gun control piece by Nashville news. Talking points straight from radical Violence Policy Center on the dangerous Barrett .50 rifle!! A couple of short quotes from John Harris as 'balance'. But 90% of the segment is anti-gun propaganda.

It was mostly spin and propaganda. Phil seems to make his mind up on what he wants to portray and then builds enough of a record to avoid a libel action.

About the only good thing re that propaganda piece is that the old media is fast dying..being eclipsed by the new digital media: internet STREAMING and social media. I am glad bks so far the new media is unfettered and refreshing. IMHO TV as we know it will die within 5-7 years.
The paper press has already seen the light at the end of the tunnel and it IS a train. Liberal rags like "Pravda-on-the-Cumberland" will die soon and nobody will care. Can u believe it?? NYT..nearly dead, WaPo..dead, Boston Globe..dead, Newsweak...dead..all bastions of leftist propaganda. Aaaaaahhhhhh! :lol:

One thing that is killing the old, authoritarian leftist media, is that, with the Tennessean, they have gradually closed down any responses to their opinion or articles. I was a subscriber to the Tennessean for many years and they had open comment sections to their columnists and articles. This has been gradually closed down. Also e-mail addresses of their editorial columnists have been removed except for twitter, so that commentary has also been shut down!
