Fox News Picky On Who Can Talk Guns

A story by New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman Monday left readers with the impression that FNC was stifling debate on gun control in light of the Sandy Hook shooting. But subsequent stories and coverage of the issue concerning FNC have shown that’s actually not the case.

“It’s by no means universal,” Sherman told FishbowlDC. “It’s more nuanced. They’re just taking a low-key approach.”

Sherman’s initial story said FNC’s weekend producer David Clark had instructed lower producers not to broach gun control, given the current sensitivity of the subject. Despite the email, gun control was discussed several different times that weekend (13 times, by Jeff Poor‘s count at The Daily Caller).

FNC’s Brit Hume Wants Correction From NY’s Gabriel Sherman; The Outcome: Fat Chance

New York mag’s Gabriel Sherman caused an explosion on the level of Three Mile Island Monday by reporting that FNC weekend Executive Producer David Clark had emailed producers with instruction not to do any segments on gun control. The report came just after the Sandy Hook killing spree at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Friday.

After a follow-up story by The Hollywood Reporter challenging the accuracy of Sherman’s piece, FNC Contributor Brit Hume demanded that Sherman issue a correction. “The Hollywood Reporter story covers a lot more than Fox News Sunday, & demolishes your original story,” Hume tweeted to Sherman. “Time for a correction.”

Try as it might, THR‘s story doesn’t exactly change anything about Sherman’s original report. It does cite “Fox News insiders’ (which Sherman cited in his own story, though surely different ones ) who dispute the charge, noting that Fox News Sunday hosted a discussion on gun policy.

Sherman’s story, however, also stated that fact.
