Well, that didn’t take long, did it? Media swiftly joined celebrity ghouls and the always disgraceful Mayor Bloomberg in politicizing the Empire State Building shooting. Unbiased? Yeah, right. As always, media outlets use events solely to push an agenda. In this case, they are politicizing and gleefully dancing on the backs of dead and injured.
Mark the time: CNN makes it's first mention of gun control in relation to the NYC shooting.

CNN talking need for gun control after NYC this am. The people that follow gun laws are not the people that shoot up city blocks. #justsayin

Also joining in? Univision social media director and self-proclaimed “journalist.”
Can we talk less about links to terrorism and more about gun control? #ESB

Totally no bias there, huh? Some Twitter users try to teach her about reporting on facts.
@conz Sure…NY has more strict gun control than most, and this happened there. More gov't control wouldn't have stopped this loon.

@conz NY has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. If someone REALLY wants to commit murder, they'll (sadly) find another method…

MSNBC, of course, “leans forward” to dance on graves and spike a political football in the faces of the injured.

didnt take an hour for msnbc to talk about stricter gun control laws #ESB

Wonder if anyone on MSNBC in this canned gun control segment will note that this occurred in NYC where there are no gun laws of note.

All this gun control talk will not stop shootings. So the media needs to quit that mess.

What else should we expect? They got the talking points from their liberal overlords after the Aurora Theater shooting. Like Soledad O’Brien, perhaps they all follow the lead of leftist blogs. And, remember, shameless, shameful and disgraceful leftist ghouls told us then that scoring political points in the wake of a horrible shooting is just hunky-dory.
That’s what happens when one has no moral compass. Media included.
