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”.
The media is the enemy.
...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
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.
Yet the Rat voters will believe every word of it.
“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.
The media needed to show that Second Amendment supporters are crazy disrespectful evil mean etc. No one was, so they just made it up!
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.
What a bunch of lying *ssholes!

@EricBoehlert What heckling are you referring to? There was no heckling. If you can’t be truthful you become part of the problem. #Honesty

Briefly set aside your stance on gun control. What horrible human being heckles a grieving parent in such a way? http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/01/29/father-of-newtown-victim-heckled-at-hearing.html

SICKENING: Sandy Hook father Neil Heslin heckled as he pleads for ban on assault weapon that killed his son Jesse: http://huff.to/116xWJ3
“...why anybody in this room needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips.”
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

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 Foxs On the Record with Greta Van Susteren in particular, which suffered its worst month ever among the 25-54 demo. January also saw the channels lowest total viewership in the 10 p.m. hour since July 2008.
The numbers werent all bad. Fox still had nine out of the top 10 shows for the month. The only program to crack Fox’ total dominance was MSNBCs The Rachel Maddow Show which came in at the 10th spot.
I gave up on FOX News but I do watch:
