Tucson MSM misreporting hasn't increased support for gun control

Frankly, I’m surprised CNN published this.

Americans’ overall attitudes toward gun laws have not budged an inch in the wake of the shootings in Arizona, according to a new national poll.

CNN tries to gussy up the findings with a little spin.

But a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday also indicates that majority of the public favors restrictions on semi-automatic guns and high-capacity ammunition clips, as well as background checks and limits on the number of guns that can be purchased.

And that’s unchanged over the past couple of years.  The MSM’s power to persuade ain’t what it used to be.  MSM misreporting on Tucson hasn’t moved the gun control needle at all, nor should it have.  The innocent shouldn’t have their freedoms restricted because of the heinous actions of one disturbed individual.
