The Daily Caller – by Joe Simonson
The media is getting its pom-poms out for a major anti-gun protest in Washington, D.C., this Saturday, with some networks devoting around-the-clock coverage starting as early as Friday.
Nearly every network will replace the entirety of their normal Saturday programming with live coverage of what is expected to be the largest anti-gun protest in U.S. history, according to press releases from many major news networks.
CNN will begin coverage at 6 a.m. Saturday and feature special editions of “The Van Jones Show” and “Erin Burnett OutFront” from New York — all focusing on gun violence in the nation’s schools.
No network seems more eager to give glowing coverage to the rally than MSNBC, which will begin featuring the event a day early on Friday. The network will also be hosting a “March for Our Lives” special from noon-3 p.m., on top of live coverage from the protest at John Marshall Park.
Instead of reporting live from the event, CBS opted to create a special documentary on the Parkland school shooting survivors. “39 Days” will premiere at 8 p.m. Saturday night.
Fox News will also present live coverage this weekend but did not block out specific times.
Finally, Univision seems to have turned the event into an activist opportunity, according to AdWeek: “The Spanish-language network is partnering with Mi Familia Vota and Voto Latino to host a Voter Registration Hub at Georgetown Law School. The partners will train volunteers, who will be stationed along the march route, to share voter education information and register eligible individuals.”
None of the aforementioned networks said whether any of the coverage would be balanced or feature activists who have alternative policy recommendations beside gun control to protect school children from shootings.

At least from this evil Charlie foxtrot, the forces of evil will be more out in the open for all to see. ALL gun control advocate are evil. They are NOT my fellow country men, but rather they are domestic enemies and traitors.
Note to all who cherish our Liberties, given to us by God: you don’t have enough ammo, you have not spent enough time on the range, you need more training, and your heart is not hard enough.
NO compromise, NO retreat, NO surrender, Absolutely NO mercy.
The ONLY good gun control advocate is a dead gun control advocate.

Because they WON’T… DUH!!!
Keep right on INFRINGING, scumbags. Words on PAPER don’t mean SH#T!!!
I don’t think their media campaign is going to be very effective. I think a lot of Americans are beginning to see through this crap, and aren’t as swayed by this nonsense as they would have been ten or twenty years ago.
