Virginia Tech Shooting
By Jim Babka

The Virginia Tech shooting is already starting to fade from the news as we get back to real life -- you know, the real news like, "Does Don Imus think that Alec Baldwin would be a good daddy for Anna Nicole Smith's daughter?"

Well, on today's Downsize DC Conference Call radio show, we're going to talk about the Virginia Tech shooting, and specifically, what wasn't being discussed by the media -- what they got wrong.

I think the mainstream press coverage missed three crucial points.

I'll be joined by a guest with relevant, very moving, testimony to share. I'm not going to tell you who he is, but trust me, you'll want to hear his story.  

And what do you think of what happened and how the media handled it?

The show airs at 4:06 PM Eastern (3:06 PM Central, 2:06 PM Mountain, and 1:06 PM Pacific).

1-800-259-9231 is the show's number. You can tell me how you would've covered this story.

If you're shy, try emailing me during the show at the address "call at downsizedc dot org"

And obviously, we'll have a Gun Owners of America update!

The show broadcasts on: KLID 1340-AM, Poplar Bluff, Missouri; WBCR 1470-AM Maryville, Tennessee; and WKLP 1390-AM Keyser, West Virginia. Sometimes, it's on Radio Free Austin.

But for most of you the best way to tune in is via the web at the Genesis Communications Network website.

Tune in. Call in.
