Have you signed our letter asking ABC News to make an on air correction for their faulty Benghazi reporting yet? We’re about to send it to the network, so sign before it is too late. Here are some of the stories from the past week, from the lunatic world of gun radio to sexism on Fox.John Whitehouse Twitter: @existentialfish
Lunatic Gun Radio
There’s a lot of fringe radio and media figures who engage in wild conspiracy theories that are best to ignore most of the time. But in recent months as America has engaged in a debate about gun violence, these fringe hosts have attracted prominent gun activists to give them validation and attention. Matt Gertz and Ben Dimiero venture into the lunatic world of gun rights radio. http://mm4a.org/19mpWdK
Cable News Misses Economic News
The housing sector recently grew significantly, a good prospect for the economy as a whole. But cable news in total spent less than 10 minutes covering that news. Instead, they’re focused on covering the nonstop D.C. scandal machine. Media Matters‘ senior economics researcher Albert Kleine looks at media coverage of the economy. http://mm4a.org/ZtFJ8P
Blatant Sexism On Fox
It started bad enough, with a panel of four men and zero women on Fox to discuss the rise in the number of female breadwinners in families. It managed to get even worse, with one Fox contributor even saying that “the male typically is the dominant role” in nature. Emily Arrowood dissects the segment. http://mm4a.org/12PUhML
Even as the conservative Wall Street Journal called the idea “dumb,” Fox News really wants a special prosecutor. In fact, they can’t stop mentioning it. Whatever you do, do not actually play this drinking game (seriously). http://youtu.be/QKdAezLYvwA
ARMED MARCH COMING TO A STATE CAPITOL NEAR YOU?
Adam Kokesh has replaced his previously announced armed march on Washington D.C. with planned armed marches on state capitols – and he plans on calling for the overthrow of the federal government. http://mm4a.org/ZeU7Q2
