MSM silent after Dem lawmaker’s gun accidentally discharges
By Howard Portnoy on February 6, 2014 at 8:00 am 

If a Ruger LCP semi-automatic is accidentally fired inside the office of a Kentucky state representative, will it make a sound? Not in the mainstream media — and especially not if the gun’s owner is a Democrat.

The story of Rep. Leslie Combs’s accidental discharge on Jan. 8 was picked up by The Blaze, a conservative outlet, and did find its way on to the Associated Press wire. But it escaped the attention of ABC, CBS, and NBC despite the fact Combs thought the gun was empty when she fired it — a detail that would ordinarily have the three major TV networks positively salivating.

The story was picked up by the New York Times, albeit a week late, and even then relegated to the back pages.

Somehow, you get the distinct sense that the MSM’s silence was selective — that if the incident had had happened in the office of a GOP lawmaker, the moral indignation would be palpable.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Abraham Lincoln
