Bias?

What media bias, indeed

Mexican President Felipe Calderon today linked the spike in drug-related violence in Mexico to the 2004 expiration of the U.S. ban on the sale of assault weapons.

Why is this story an example of it?

Because apparently no one interrupted Calderon to ask him about the vast majority of guns seized from the cartels that couldn’t be traced to any source. Apparently no one interrupted Calderon to ask him to provide some hard evidence to back his statements up. Apparently no one interrupted Calderon (or Obama, for that matter) to ask him about the roughly 2,000 American weapons that got walked south by the ATF and weren’t even tracked after they got across the border.

You can really tell ole Felipe’s gettin’ desperate, though. Why? Because the Clinton gun ban expired in September 2004. The American media didn’t start peddling the “U.S. gun dealers are arming the cartels” meme for another three years. Go ahead, Felipe. Pull my other one.
