Michelle Malkin has been all over this.

Apparently Anderson Cooper got into a heated argument with Muskets Morgan last night when Anderson suggested that the media should admit their “mistake”.

...And probably collusion between this bereaved father and the Media to get a useful soundbite.

It is a common tactic of the left to put forward someone of Absolute Moral Authority, who cannot be questioned, as a prop to advance their agenda. Cindy Sheehan was one from the near past.

I hope this poor man realizes that he is being used by people that will laugh at him behind his back, and then discard him ruthlessly as soon as his usefulness is at an end.

a troll over on Townhall started screaming about this almost the minute it happened.

Other posters caught her in the lie, but the Talking Point had gone oput, and the lie was repeated 20 some times in one thread

Wasn't it the same media that claimed the Aurora shooter was a TEA Party member only to find out that they had wrong guy?

And then, we find out later that the shooter worked on the 2008 Obama campaign.

It seems as though they have lost all sense of rational thought.

The real Show Trial moment was after he harrumphed that nobody would answer his question. So some people started to offer an answer, immediately provoking the “judge” to shout them down (”no comments!”) and threaten to clear the room.

“why anybody in this room needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips.”

There is no requirement to show need before exercising a right.

I don’t know why it is considered “respectful” for the father to rail about taking people’s gun rights away.

He disrespected those who wished to show him support, by using it for a partisan political purpose.

Still, the crowd tried to be respectful, not answering his question because they knew it would upset him, instead just hoping he would go away and stop lecturing them.

Then, he disrespected them a second time, by claiming the reason they didn’t answer was they HAD no answer, rather than the obvious which was they didn’t feel it was respectful to challenge him.

So then, having been directly attacked, some people tried to respond, and they were disrespectfully stopped.

If Zimmerman collects on NBC then other innocent powerless citizens will also be able to sue the MSM liars... It’s time to fight the bullies.

Because the 2nd Amendment says I CAN, and the amount of ammunition you need is DETERMINED AFTER THE GUN FIGHT.

Setup? Was the audience told to remain quiet? If so Mr. Heslin knew he could word his question in a specific way to make it look like no pro-gun audience member could justify high capacity magazines or semi-auto rifles.

Fox News Ratings Hit 12-year Low
Wednesday, January 30, 2013 09:49 PM

By: Matthew Auerbach

Fox News had its worst prime time ratings in January in the coveted 25-54 demographic since August 2001, a 12-year low, and its lowest total day ratings since June 2008, Politico reports.

The year started off badly for Fox’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” in particular, which suffered its worst month ever among the 25-54 demo. January also saw the channel’s lowest total viewership in the 10 p.m. hour since July 2008.

The numbers weren’t all bad. Fox still had nine out of the top 10 shows for the month. The only program to crack Fox’ total dominance was MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” which came in at the 10th spot.
