    good reading.

    As the saying goes, "If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns."

    Gun control isn't crime control.

    Yeah, John Stossel, one of the good guys.
    He presents common sense backed-up by facts. That makes him one different bird in the world of reporters.
    Do not confuse him with the rest of them, and do not see him as a new trend, more an anomaly.

    Doubt it. He's been at this game for quite a while. Long as I can remember, but then again, I'm a young 'un.

    ABC Knows the deal

    ABC News can see their market share dropping and FOX News Channel's share is on the rise.

    They know on which side their bread is buttered.

    The editorial staff had to hold their collective nose and let that one go.

    Looks to me like a simple case of a reporter reporting the facts.

    last week abc's morning show offended me due to the (anti-gun) coverage of the VT shootings. I like to think my (& other THR members) comments submitted to abc helped to furnish this story. we need more press like this, keep writing boys

    Facts at ABC???

    Wow, I am stunned.

    Facts!, we don't need no stinkin' Facts!

    ABC usually hires the team of Dewey, Cheatum and Howe <I know, WAY old joke> to check their facts for them. I still think most news agency's fact checkers are locked in a room and ask random questions of Rhesus monkeys.

    Stossel has always reported the facts. He might be the blacksheep at ABC but blacksheep there is defined as anyone that tells the truth. He is probably the only truthful journalist on their payroll.

    Here is his main page with links to some other articles:

    It sounds like Stossel reads THR.

    Michelle Malkin also has quite a clear head and writes outstanding articles exposing the truth for what it is. She's also clearly in our corner. I just read this article in our local newspaper.

    http://www.vdare.com/malkin/070417_self_defense.htm

    On looking her up in google, I ran across this pro-gun article also.

    http://www.vdare.com/malkin/070320_second_amendment.htm

    I found a good selection of her articles here and intend to read more of them as I have time.

    Stossel did a radio interview here in Chicago yesterday morning.

    On the air he said that; "Most reporters don't bother checking the facts that come in with a press release or a story, if it fits their pre-conceived idea of things. (Is anyone really surprised at that?) Gun control reducing crime and violence is one of the things that is just taken as Gospel by most reporters that don't own and maybe nevcer have known anyone that has a gun, so they keep repeating the same lines over and over anytime a gun is involved in a crime and most never bother to do the research, even though it's right there for anyone with a computer to find."

    I'm always a little surprised when any one of the networks allows someone to speak out like that.

    But his book has been a best seller and it's now coming out in paperback next week.

    There is also a video clip you can watch in the article, which features Stossel. Its 8 minutes long or so.

    Also, apparently there is going to be An ABC special with him on the topic of guns on May 4, this too, according to the video.
