Media Bias: 1979

This is an interesting profile of Jeff Cooper, done by NBC in 1979. It's notable not only for the shooting techniques shown (and the clothing styles) but for the obvious anti-gun bias shown by host and longtime liberal mouthpiece Linda Ellerbee.

Cooper states, "You are morally entitled to save your own life." He surmises that the concern in self defense is "not how much you are going to hurt [your attacker], but how much he may hurt you." Nonetheless, Ellerbee ignores those lessons of self defense and wraps up the segment with "Those people pay Jeff Cooper $300 a week to teach them to shoot people." Hardly surprising.

Some things never change.
