    So Howard, do I have this straight? Your panel talks about Murdoch-owned newspapers calling Wayne LaPierre "a gun nut", but you don't even mention Piers Morgan calling Larry Pratt "incredibly stupid" and "a dangerous man"? Between Piers Morgan, Don Lemon and Soledad O'Brien, CNN became the gun-grabbing network last week. Show some consistency and some backbone, for crying out loud.

    The intellectual dishonesty of this episode is truly astonishing. Their definition of a effective debate is one where their particular ideology prevails. This is presupposing the conslusions they want to prevail, without an honest examination of all the relevant evidence, and is by definition intellectually dishonest. Their continual misrepresentation of those with a different view on this issue is truly shameful.
