<p>On Thursday, NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/matthew-balan/2015/10/07/cnn-boosts-peo…; target="_blank">joined CNN</a> in promoting the latest issue of <em>People</em> magazine, which demanded congressional action on gun violence. At the top of the morning show, co-host Savannah Guthrie heralded: <strong>&ldquo;<em>People</em> gets political. The glossy magazine known more for its celebrity scoops and red-carpet fashions wades into one of the most controversial issues in America.</strong> Is the magazine taking sides?&rdquo;</p>

<p>Later, while introducing a nearly three-minute segment on the topic, Guthrie declared: <strong>&ldquo;The entertainment magazine has a call to action of sorts.&rdquo;</strong> Correspondent Stephanie Gosk followed: <strong>&ldquo;<em>People</em> magazine has a message for the people, rise up, reach out, and tell Congress to do something.&rdquo;</strong></p>
