More About: MEDIA (MainStreamMedia - aka MSM)

Not a peep about the AZ Republic front pager on "man with gun"?

Actually the terror on the front page of the AZ Republic today was a little more nuanced. Noted travel figure avoids Arizona because we are all maniacs. The last point I caught: does Arizona need a face lift?
 
Gee, does the AZ Republic need a face lift?
 
Arizona Repubilc won't show Chris' face on the front page, so perhaps this is a veiled message of racism: they clearly don't want the face of Arizona to be black.
 
We already know the "national lamestream media" doesn't want the face of gun owners to be black.
 
Well I could delve into the article but I didn't read it. I'm not paying money to read this dreck. But if I should visit the offices of this venerable literary institution, will I find notices banning the carry of firearms within? Come on AZ Republic, state your position and put your money where your mouth is.

I didn't say I wouldn't read the whole article, I'm just not going to pay for it. Here it is online.
 
And what more can we say about the pic they used. The one on the printed page is even more cropped.
 


Nicely framed. Hide the black guy's head behind the rifle stock and squeeze in the white guy.

I notice an hour after I post Gordon's comment above it has been removed from the article's link.  Interesting.

Like someone said...beating a dead horse.  But we love the attention.  Thank you Arizona Republic.

We have a reader who reads the AZ Republic.  Informant?  ;-)

 Seriously, the best thing about this argument is Phil GOrdon finally comments (two weeks after the fact):

"In a 20-minute conference call Thursday, Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon and Steve Moore , head of the Greater Phoenix Convention and Visitors Bureau, spoke with Frommer, inviting him to visit Phoenix to clear up any misperceptions about the city's safety.

"It's a great place to live, work, raise a family and particularly to visit," Gordon said. "It's unfortunate an individual expressing his beliefs (the man with the rifle) got the coverage he got because that's not what Phoenix is about. Phoenix is one of the safest major cities in the United States."

Gordon pointed out that 10 other states have open-carry laws similar or identical to Arizona's, where most citizens can carry a firearm in public without a permit or license. There are seven states where openly carrying guns is unlawful."
