Actually John Stossel was on the Factor with Bill O'Reilly a while back and Bill ask him about this story. Seems Stossel got in more than a little brown do-do for this but he does have a loyal following. John was able to go ahead with his story inspite of loud noises from above. Very brave, but he wasn't about to back down. A real good guy.

I'd hazard a guess that ABC's running it as part of the Demo camouflage campaign for the 2006 election (we're not against guns -- you're stupid to think that we are).

I didn't catch last nights showing, but it may have been a repeat of an earlier broadcast. If not, I'm very surprised he would be able to run it past the exec's two different times.

from the text of the article linked to above:
This report originally aired on "20/20" Jan. 23, 2004.
Still, kudos to ABC for airing it again. Just as valid today as it was in '04.
Perhaps ABC is realizing that the anti-gun bigots are losing popularity and credibility with America as a whole. I think they are starting to see that being 'anti gun' as being on the losing side. The actions of the VPC in Florida passing out flyers at airports enhanced our cause greatly... American sheeple could only be fed BS so long before seeing through the poop they were being fed :D
ABC runs pro-gun TV specials, San Francisco newspapers publish pro-gun articles... could this be the beginning of a tide turning? :)

Interesting that it was "Myth #3" in 2004, but "Myth #5" in 2005.
