[See NewsBusters for more.] The journalists at ABC on Wednesday didn’t hesitate to exploit the shooting in California as an opportunity to promote gun control. As details were still unfolding in the San Bernardino shooting, George Stephanopoulos lamented, “[Obama] has spoken after Sandy Hook. Always coming out calling for more measures to make it more difficult for people to have access to the kind of weapons that can pull off these kindof mass shootings. It has been one of the great frustration of his presidency.”  Reporter Pierre Thomas said of gun control: “It's been viewed by some as a political issue.” By some? How is gun control not a political issue when the two major parties strongly differ on it? Thomas argued for gun control: “The solutions have been difficult in coming. And the moment appears to be nearing where there are going to be so many of these things that people are going to have to come together and try to figure out a way to deal with them.”
