Ivy League Training Next Generation of Gun Hating Journalists

January 24, 2015 Education, Featured, Politics No Comments

By Gabriella Hoffman

No matter how many times anti-gun lies and correspondent misinformation are debunked, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and his gun grabbing organizations are adamant about disarming Americans.

Everytown for Gun Safety is hosting a training for aspiring journalists  in Phoenix, AZ from April 17-18, 2015. The training is being put on by the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, which is a project of Columbia University’s Journalism School.

Here’s more information about the journalism workshop:

The workshop, funded by Everytown for Gun Safety, will offer independent expert briefings and specialized reporting skills training to enhance the practical ability of journalists to report on guns and gun violence knowledgeably, ethically and effectively. The workshop will cover such topics as state and federal gun laws; patterns of gun sales and gun trafficking; national trends and polling; education and prevention initiatives; social, economic and public health impacts; and special populations (e.g. children and youth, women and returning veterans.)

Campus Reform Campus Correspondent Yvonne Dean-Bailey dug up some more information about the biased trained:

On the workshop’s website, The Dart Center cites a generous grant from the group that made the workshop possible. According to the Sarasota Herald-TribuneEverytown gave the center $48,000 for the workshop.

The center is also offering a $350 travel stipend to students.

This should come as no surprise. Institutions of higher learning are hostile to the Second Amendment. However, it’s disconcerting to see Michael Bloomberg extend his anti-gun tentacles.
