Rick Gates plea boosts speculation

This Week On #MediaBuzz

JONATHAN SWAN said President Trump used his skills as a reality show producer to put the gun issue at the top of the media radar. EMILY JASHINSKY said some in conservative media may be shifting on gun control but there is plenty of bias from journalists in New York and Washington. MO ELLEITHEE said the media are finally having an honest conversation about mass shootings but that Trump's proposal on arming trained teachers deserves scrutiny. GAYLE TROTTER said the NRA's insistence that the media love mass shootings is rooted in astonishment at the biased coverage, but RICHARD FOWLER said the press is reporting the facts and the voices in Florida that need to be heard. SHANA GLENZER said it is disturbing that bogus conspiracy videos and posts about the protesting Florida students are going vital and tech companies aren't doing enough to stop them. And STEVE HAYES said the speculation after the Rick Gates guilty plea is pointless because journalists don't know what other evidence Bob Mueller has in his investigation.
