Peirs Morgan Lies On the Air

He claimed (falsely) that the State of Virginia had the highest murder rate in 2008 to answer  his guest’s assertion that Virginia, which now has very loose gun laws, caused violent crime to diminish. The truth is, the states with the highest violent crime rate in 2008 were Louisiana and New Mexico. Source, the FBI. Virginia was a distant 23rd. Morgan said that Connecticut firearms sales “going through the roof” after the Newtown murders was “disconcerting.” Of course, it would be to a fool like Peirs Morgan. But his action is indicative of all liberals in the news media: if they can’t come up with a TRUE figure to refute someone, they’ll make one up. (News Busters/CNN)
