Rupert Murdoch’s urban conservative NY Post has been running numerous articles and covers supporting gun control and vilifying the gun proponent conservatives. Apparently at the direct orders of Murdoch.
While Murdoch’s FOX News, at the orders of Richard Ailes (yes, the same man who claimed Fox had only one conservative working there) has ordered FOX, which serves more of the rural conservative base, to support the NRA view of things.
While the gun control issue is usually presented as breaking down as coservative VS liberal, the truth is far more complicated. The issue is far more likely to break down on urban vs rural as well as by education and income levels.
But of course- guns are one of many issues we can’t seem to discuss honestly. And as always part of the problem is we try to oversimplify and pigeonhole “them” as well as “us”.
