What fascinates me about journalism and the news business as it is being practiced in Arizona today…both at the Arizona Republic and in the Tucson Daily Star is that here was have a major national story with two local “hooks”….Agent Terry is murdered near Tucson and two ATF “walked” weapons are found at his murder scene AND we have the ATF Gunwalker scheme operating out of Phoenix.
One would think ambitious reporters wanting maybe a Pulitzer Prize would have really dug into this story and made it their own.
Did not happen.
The story broke on 2nd amendment sites like Sipsey Street and I started posting on it on the Citizen because I also got off-the-record verification the claims about walked guns turning up at Terry’s murder scene were true.
A Department of Homeland Security mouthpiece publication even directly attacked me claiming the story I ran about ATF guns was not true.
Now we know what is really true in the wake of Senator Charles Grassley’s efforts and Representative Darrell Issa’s efforts.
Interestingly a blog site where we do this for free beat the heck out of both the Star and the Republic in getting the truth to the people of Arizona.
