So, what’s the deal?

There were gun confiscations in New Orleans. The mayor and police chief have denied that they occurred, even though some were caught on tape and some guns have been returned. Now, the New Orleans Police Chief (Eddie Compass) has resigned.

Is there a relationship there? Beats me. But the confiscation is conspicuously absent from most press coverage of the resignation (a few smaller media outlets excepted and a mention by the NYT with no follow ups). Also, the NRA victory in getting a restraining order against the police to stop confiscating arms has not received any major news coverage (again, smaller outlets excepted).

So, where’s the damn coverage? Wholesale violation of constitutional rights, cover-up, and resignations – yet not a mention of the event that proceeded said resignation? Feh.

    That’s a rhetorical question, right?

    Who are the smaller outfits doing the better work? It sounds like they might be more interested in doing their job than their corporate counterparts.
