Entertainment TV’s Bias Against Guns


The media’s pro-gun-control bias doesn’t just distort news coverage. TV networks have used their primetime entertainment shows to portray gun rights advocates as dishonest, extremist and unconcerned about the loss of innocent lives. At the same time, advocates of gun control are portrayed as caring, upstanding and responsible citizens. 

Liberal television executives apparently think that they have the power to change Americans’ attitudes via veiled propaganda on your television screen. In fact, the sometimes not-so-subtle push for gun control really seems to have picked up this year.

As I mentioned in a Townhall.com column in mid-July, the most common bias involves characters making it clear that liking guns is definitely not cool. It is obviously an old theme going back to the “MacGyver” series. This spring on abc’s “The Crossing,” the sheriff’s young son said, “I don’t like guns,” when a deputy suggested he might someday replace his father. The deputy appeared discomforted by the exchange.
