Uncle links to a recent Downrange TV piece on the media bias against firearm owners and firearms in general. I agree w/ Paul's claim that much of it is due to ignorance and laziness but I disagree w/ it being due to us not advertising our own events.
As I covered back in March, for IGOLD '08, all the major networks and papers in IL were contacted by the media reps and several individuals. They were told a march on the state capitol was "not news". About 2500 people showed up and it garnered only a buried copy-paste AP paragraph in the Chicago Tribune. On the same day, however, an anti-gun editorial was printed along with a long rant by Mayor Daley lambasting firearm ownership.
A pro-firearm rally in the city in July that had several hundred attendees was completely ignored. Again the media was informed.
In contrast, a march of less than 500 people a few days later to protest 'gun violence' in a city that bans most guns got front page coverage.
The Chicago Tribune editorial staff has called for the repeal of the 2nd Amendment.
That's deliberate bias.
