Juan Williams Parrots David Axelrod’s Chicago Gun Violence Talking Points

February 4, 2013

And on FOX News, no less.

Earlier today, chief Obama adviser David Axelrod tried to blame the massive gun violence in Chicago on the surrounding communities. Ed Morrissey of Hot Air has a video of Axelrod appearing on MSNBC saying this…

“We live in Chicago, and one of the reasons we have such a huge problem in this city is that all around us are areas with weak laws and with very lax background checks and a lot of illegal guns flow into this city,” Axelrod told MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. “Every law enforcement official will tell you that.”

Absolutely absurd.

And yet, tonight on Special Report on FOX News, Juan Williams recited the exact same ridiculous point. Is Juan Williams watching MSNBC for show prep these days?
