A media watchdog group released a report on Monday that found the three major broadcast networks presented coverage in favor of new gun-control measures nearly 5 times as often as they presented coverage in favor of gun rights during the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting.

The Media Research Center, a conservative nonprofit, said between October 2 and October 8, ABC, NBC, and CBS’s news programs spent 30 minutes and 17 seconds arguing in favor of more gun control while only 6 minutes and 27 seconds were dedicated to support for gun rights. The report, authored by Deputy Research Director Geoffrey Dickens and published on the group’s NewsBusters website, examined all statements from anchors, reporters, guests, and soundbites that took a position on gun control or gun rights.

“In the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting massacre, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks wasted little time in exploiting the tragedy to advance their anti-gun rights agenda,” Dickens wrote. “In just six days (October 2 through October 8) of coverage, the networks filled their evening and morning show programs with statements favoring gun control over gun rights by a ratio of roughly 5 to 1.”
