ABC's 20/20, David Muir, The Armed Citizens Project, and "Amanda"


The Armed Citizens Project will be the focus of a story about guns in America scheduled to air on ABC's 20/20 program sometime in December. Specifically, host David Muir sat down with a group of 12 single mothers who had received 12-gauge shotguns as part of the program.

"Amanda", one of those 12 single moms, describes her participation in both the interview and with the Armed Citizens Project in the most recent episode of The Squirrel Report. She said Muir asked hard questions and she gave him back hard answers. Some of her answers must have been a little too hard for Muir as he changed the subject rather than continue his line of questioning. It will be interesting to see how ABC edits this. Amanda said that Muir's anti-gun bias was quite evident.

The Squirrel Report is a weekly podcast hosted by Alan of Snarky Bytes, Breda of Breda Fallacy fame, JayG, and WeerdBeard.

    1. My pleasure. I met Kyle Coplen down in Houston at the NRA Annual Meeting. He's doing good work.

      I gather from the podcast that the Armed Citizen folks didn't video Muir's interview themselves. It would have been a great way to show what was edited out.

  4. Just my opinion, but anytime yu're interviewed by the media you should have your own video ..

  5. I'm impressed, I have to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that's equally educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you may have strike the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding the issue is one thing that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled throughout this in my find for anything referring to this.

  6. Looks like ABC and 20/20 are "changing direction" on their gun safety piece. Did a follow up with sqrpt tonite. Also, they posted this online this week: http://abcnews.go.com/2020/mailform?id=20925603
