    or MSNBC, sorry thought to post it when I first woke up and saw it this morning but forgot to as I woke up on a cold morning in Florida. It's on one of the major news networks (not FOX, CNN, or CNBC), it's on a 9pm this Sunday. From the blurry of images I saw on the commercial there was a Thompson SMG, an Kalichnikov, and some other "mean" looking firearms. I'm so tuning in to see what the anti nonsense that gets spouted.

    I've only experienced three words of this production (the title) and it already sounds like nonsensical anti-gun bile.

    If MSNBC is now going to have a "special" dealing with black rifles, that tells me the push is on for a new "assault rifle" ban. MSNBC is going to start laying the groundwork. I'm far too old to believe in coincidence. I also strongly suspect there will be an "incident" involving a black rifle, highly publicized, which will curiously be just in time for the lefties to push for the ban. :(

    *crosses fingers and puts on naive hat* maybe it'll be alright. I've actually read a few articles over the last few weeks the are pretty balanced...which reminds me...off to post a link

    The fact that so called news stations even have segments "about" anything at all shows they are biased. Their job should be to report about actual happenings in the world. Not to do public interest crap designed to mold opinions.

    Will be interesting to watch just for all the non-facts, opinion, and false information they spew as facts.

    Media, the largest special interest group there is.

    I can't find it, either. Weird.

    When I search, the only relevant result is this thread.

    The only one I could find is a "Special Report" about guns featuring Al Roker - airs next Sunday (11/23) at 10:00pm on MSNBC-TV.

    ^That's probably it. Can you post the link? I can't find it. I don't know the secret handshake. Programming in different parts of the country is often completely different (i.e., more than just a time zone shift). So, please just post the link.

    Bingo. MSNBC should just be renamed MSDNC as they are jsut a mouth piece for the Democrats. I would agree this is a precursor of things to come.

    Sorry, jakemccoy, but couldn't find a link - saw it advertised on MSNBC yesterday and wrote it down. Maybe on their (MSNBC-TV) website later this week...

    Doesn't sound balanced to me, but I'll wait to judge.

    Topic?

    So, are we gonna get a report on the program, or are we gonna make this about the media in general?

    I see a lot of questions on where to find the program and the prejudiced bias of the program's name and TV Guide program description.

    I see a lot of "let's wait and see what MSNBC does with this" responses.

    I see questions/comments about MSNBC's objectivity. Not the media in general.

    I also see a recognition of biased media "stories" like this driving anti-RKBA legislation. If we cannot discuss that here...the Antis have already won.
