Not Newtown? Not News.

Did you hear or read about an incident in San Antonio, TX a few days ago? Unless you're a dedicated  News Junkie, probably not. Why? It had the stuff Big News Stories are made of that qualify for front page and prime time coverage. You can read the story here.
Was it the body count? (Not enough) Age of the victims? (Not "children") Or because it had a happy ending that contradicts the media narrative about guns?
"Only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun" -- one of the newer  pro-gun bumper stickers -- has bounced off the critical thinking of the MSM and gun control crowd. This story proves it's not a cliche.  Maybe that's why it wasn't the lead story all last week.That's managing news to support a political agenda. And it's wrong.
