Just seconds before the Capital gun scare story died, CNN’s Jonathan Karl was beginning his interview with New York Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy. Why select her from the 435 members of Congress? Why, because her husband was the victim of gun violence, of course!
Fortunately, the story turned out to be a false alarm. Otherwise CNN’s viewers would have been subjected to who knows how much fear-inspired, uninformed anti-gun speculation.
This example of liberal media bias is so great, one suspects even Eric Alterman might notice.
