Lies and Misinformation

by Georgia Concealed Carry on January 8, 2014 · 0 comments

There’s nothing that upsets us and frustrates us more than the media making up facts and statistics to promote their own agenda.  There are countless examples of this but recently we came across a video of a news interview on HLN Raising America.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again.. the media has to be held to a higher standard.  People trust and rely on the media to give them true and honest information, not lies and misinformation.  It’s one thing for reporters to get caught up in the emotion of some of the recent tragedies but to flat outright lie on television is unacceptable.

In the following video, at the 4:20 mark, Lisa Belkin from the Huffington Post says:

“.. the statistics say that more people are hurt by guns in their own home than saved by guns in their own home.”

You can look, but there is NO evidence to prove this statistic anywhere.  What’s even more annoying is that everyone else sitting there just nods their head in acceptance.  Check it out..
