ABC firearm news covered by former antigun group staffer
ABC News has brought on Jake Tapper to handle gun issues, and here's his take on the NRA convention.
Turns out Tapper is a former employee of Handgun Control, Inc., which is today known as the Brady Campaign.
Here's a story with links to his past writings for Salon.com, which make it obvious why HCI would have hired him. "Another day, another school shooting -- and another brief focus by the media on gun control. But believe it or not, despite the rash of high-profile school shootings in recent years, not one major gun law has passed the U.S. Congress since 1996..." "That Congress continues to slay any and every gun law -- no matter how popular, incidental or seemingly reasonable -- is a tribute to the gun industry's powerhouse of a lobby, the National Rifle Association."
Here's a page where you can send ABC a comment. Let's see now -- hiring a reporter on an issue where he'll be quoting his former bosses and coworkers? No disclosure of the linkage?
