Media Hypocrisy In The War On Guns
Would YOU put this sign in YOUR yard?
A crew of undercover journalists asked just that of the many editors, commentators and journalists in the New York & DC metro following weeks of media attention given to a New York paper that published the names and addresses of law abiding gun owners. Their responses were astonishing and quite different than their on-air and/or published stance. And it’s all caught on video.
Project Veritas, the brain child of James O’Keefe who has unraveled ACORN and exposed voter fraud in at least 5 states, approached MSNBC’s Toure, editors of the now notorious “gun maps” and even knocked on the door to Attorney General Eric Holder’s home, which greeted them with armed security.

The “targets” of the investigation are those in media who have advocated for strict gun control in the US and who have attempted to publicly shame legal gun owners. The goal? To determine if the gun control activists would practice what they preach and place a sign in their own yard advertising their home was a “gun free zone.”
O’Keefe has been a fierce critic of cable and mainstream media outlets for promoting a political agenda and says he aims simply to point out the hypocrisy in popular liberal circles.
“The fact that they will say one thing on air to get ratings or whatever, the fact that they will publish and target law-abiding citizens, and then not live to their own standards is astounding,” says O’Keefe of the journalists in the video who refused signs or felt uncomfortable sharing their own personal information.
Shortly after the Journal News published the names and addresses (complete with interactive maps on the newspaper’s website), the National Rifle Association struck back with a long list of their own “outing” gun control advocates.
