<p><em>See more in the <a href="…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the NewsBusters blog</em>.</p>

<p>In the latter portion of Thursday night&rsquo;s CNN &ldquo;town hall&rdquo; with President Barack Obama on gun control, host Anderson Cooper surprisingly pushed back at the President&rsquo;s slam on opponents of his executive actions and policies on guns as conspiracy theorists.</p>

<p>After lobbing a number of tough questions at the President, Cooper stepped in when Obama took his latest dig at those who oppose him and flatly characterized them as believing a government conspiracy: <strong>&ldquo;This notion of a conspiracy out there and it gets wrapped up in concerns about the federal government. Now, there&#39;s a long history of them. That&#39;s in our DNA. The United States was born suspicious of some distant authority.&rdquo;</strong></p>
