Bob Costas learned the hard way: It’s never a good time to talk about gun violence in America. Not after Arizona. Not after Aurora. Not after Wisconsin. Twice. Not after Jovan Belcher’s murder-suicide captivated a nation.
But who decides when and where and how we talk about gun culture and handgun violence in this country? Mostly Fox News, actually. Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, naturally, have a problem with this hypocrisy.
