CBS Uses Father of California Shooting Victim to Push Gun Control

June 17, 2014 | 8:21 PM EDT

CBS Evening News seems to have shifted from merely reporting the news to becoming an advocate. On Tuesday, June 17, fill-in host Jeff Glor introduced a segment on gun control that sounded more like anti-gun propaganda from Michael Bloomberg than an actual news report. Glor began by hyping "Today, the man who reenergized the movement for stricter gun laws took his fight to the nation's capital. Last month, Richard Martinez lost his son, one of six student shots or stabbed to death near the University of California Santa Barbara." Video cross-posted here at NewsBusters.
