The media don’t care about gun control anymore

The media don’t care about gun control anymore: "In the days after the Newtown, Conn., shootings, President Obama and other political leaders vowed to aggressively pursue new gun control legislation. But in the year since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the fight has migrated away from Capitol Hill to the states, where advocates hope their chances for success are better.

Perhaps one reason for the shift is that reformers have struggled to keep the national media’s attention on the gun debate. Despite unprecedented coverage in the days after the shooting, one year later media interest in gun control is right back to where it was before anyone had heard of Adam Lanza."
