Conservatives have had a growing mistrust of the media on various subjects and for a multitude of reasons. Most reporting on gun violence and mass shootings illustrate why that is so. Lois Beckett, who is a senior reporter for the British paper The Guardian here in the United States. She was assigned exclusively to cover guns, gun violence, and the far right.

This morning on Twitter she posted a thread that I hope all reporters who sincerely want to report the truth and not advance an agenda will read.

Now I don’t agree with everything that Beckett writes, but I respect the fact that she strives to get the facts right and understand both points of view. Too many reporters approach this subject with political and cultural bias and come at it with an agenda. Hence CNN ends up hosting a gun control rally in place of what was supposed to be a town hall.  Gun violence and the gun debate are complex issues, and it requires research and to listen to victims and gun owners.

Unfortunately, the focus in much of the reporting I’ve read has been on the wrong things when it comes to the cause of gun violence and what to do to prevent it.
