>     We've always known this, and now a new study confirms it:
>network news programs in American today have a decidedly anti-gun
>bias.  Astounded by the overtly slanted stories which ran in the wake
>of the Supreme Court's decision overturning the Brady Act, researchers
>at the Alexandria, Virginia-based Media Research Center decided to
>examine every gun control policy story which has aired on the major
>networks' morning and evening news programs from July 1, 1995 to June
>30, 1997.  What they discovered is enough to convince even the most
>skeptical person that when it comes to covering the right to keep and
>bear arms, there is simply no balance to be found.  Out of 103 evening
>news segments, anti-gun stories outnumbered pro-gun stories by a 70-6
>margin, with 27 reports being labeled as "neutral."  Overall, out of
>the 224 non-neutral stories, 157 were biased in favor of gun control. 
>This revelation led the researchers at MRC to wonder if the media
>would be so friendly to politicians and lobbyists seeking to place
>more restrictions on the First Amendment.  A good question, indeed.
