Media Blacks Out 9th Circuit Ruling That 2nd Amendment Applies to State and Local Government

A huge ruling (even if it was, in fact, substantially prefigured by Heller), and the MSM doesn't even bother reporting on it.

This isn't merely bias. "Bias" doesn't really explain it, exactly, because it's not as if failing to report the ruling somehow makes it go away.

This instead reporters and editors failing to cover it simply because they find this particular news unpleasant, and would rather live in a world in which it were not the law (at least in the states patrolled by the 9th circuit).

And so, simply by refusing to concede the ruling happened, the cocoon their readers -- and themselves -- from the unpleasantness.

Reality-based community or community-based reality? You be the judge.

The Enchanted Media (TM) often knocks the blogosphere as catering to one particular viewpoint, and providing our readers only with stories they like, while avoiding those that might discomfit them.

And that rap is... true, to an extent.

But, as John Bender famously asked, "And what about you, Dad? NO, DAD -- WHAT ABOUT YOU?!!!"
