Watching VICE NEWS’ international vox populi Do We Need Stricter Gun Control? one question dominates. What’s the point (other than wondering why two ostensibly Israeli citizens speak with a New Zealand accent)? I reckon VICE NEWS was trying to show their journalistic objectivity. In fact, their anti-gun bias is so deeply ingrained they probably don’t realize that the final product of their selective editing process is horribly lopsided . . .
One out of eighteen interviewees was pro gun rights. Eight were anti. Nine were neutral.
Bottom line: this is anti-gun agitprop masquerading as journalism. I worry about anyone who can’t see that, from the producers of this piece to VICE’s wet-behind-the-ears audience, who share the news org’s anti-gun prejudice because they can’t be bothered not to.
