<p>[<em>More in the cross-post on the MRC's <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-balan/2014/09/05/cbs-boosts-bloomb…; target="_blank">NewsBusters blog</a>.</em>]</p><p>On the 5 September 2014 edition of <em>CBS This Morning</em>, Jan Crawford spotlighted the latest gun control push by Moms Demand Action. Crawford touted the "striking images" in the group's new ad campaign, which she labeled their "most aggressive attempt yet...to draw attention to what they say are weak gun control laws."<br /><br />The correspondent did point out that the liberal organization is "backed financially by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg," but didn't identify the political ideology of either the group or the billionaire politician. Crawford slanted toward Moms Demand Action by playing two soundbites from its founder, versus one from a gun rights backer. She also zeroed in on the group's past successes:<br /><br />JAN CRAWFORD: The chain is the latest business to come under fire by the group, which also mounted pressure on Target and Starbucks. Eventually, both companies asked their customers not to bring firearms into their stores.<br /><br />SHANNON WATTS, MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOUNDER: Hopefully, Kroger will respond quickly, and we can move on to other companies, and other laws and policies. But, you know, we aren't going away.</p>
