A rare glimpse of balanced reporting

Lesley Stahl of 60 minutes reports on the current gun buying spree, Virginia gun politics, and gun shows. Found at the VCDL:

Sure there were many glaring errors, and Stahl interviewed several anti-gunners and only one pro gun source, VCDL President Philip Van Cleave, but she did give him a decent amount of air time, and didn't manipulate his words. Such journalistic honesty is hard to find these days, and I point this out in hopes that her example will someday be followed.

More like this, please.

I do like the fact that at the very beginning she points out that they are filling out the background check paperwork, puts a a bit of a kybosh on the gunshow loophole angle.
