“Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking.” (Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz)
Once, the media at least tried to look like they weren’t taking sides in any kind of debate. They presented news and, for the most part, let people come to conclusions for themselves. Sure, the media leaned left, but they at least made an effort to appear neutral.
These days, they make no such pretenses.
When it comes to guns, they seemingly trip over themselves to shape a narrative that is decidedly anti-gun, including by asking non-experts what to do about gun violence in Chicago.
