Journalists should be objective and report facts, not push a particular point of view. Sadly, this is often lost at NBC’s Today Show. Maybe this is why they’ve lost so many viewers of the years?
Via MRC, Today Show correspondent Jeff Rossen really let his bias come through in an interview with D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier when he asked her a question in reference to the Navy Yard shooting on gun control in the following manner:
“You have fought hard for gun control. Yet here is somebody who is clearly mentally disturbed, but he was still able to legally get a gun. What’s wrong here?”
The misleading part of the question is that the FBI does do a mental health background check on you when you purchase a gun. Yet, Mr. Rossen never mentions it.
