Another Media Matters attack: “WSJ gives discredited researcher John Lott a platform to falsely blame gun regulation for the Mexican Drug War”

26 Oct , 2019  

Media Matters is upset again that a major news outlet has published John Lott’s work. In this case, the anti-conservative group is miffed that he had a piece in the Wall Street Journal.

WSJ gives discredited researcher John Lott a platform to falsely blame gun regulation for the MexicanDownload
