News Community Poll: Biased News & Gun Control

This week the news community has had several discussion on some pretty big issues. But some growing themes I’ve seen are centered around journalist integrity and gun control.
Both of which are issues right now. With BBC editing some of their documentary footage, many readers are become critical of their favorite British news platform.
When it comes to gun control, there is no shortage of news. Obama reached out and stated his opinions on the issue, and since the Oregon shooting there has been an new wave in the movement.

And then...This happened...

PEOPLE Editorial Director Jess Cagle used his Editor's Letter to address the frequency of mass shootings in America, and provided contact info for all the members of Congress to get people reaching out.
He created a mostly celebrity themed news magazine into a political statement. A magazine platform that does have an interest base, but remains pretty much out of the political scene.
They are People magazine. But when it comes down to it aren’t most magazines like this supposed to remain relatively unbiased?
So from this I have two questions for the news community.

Considering how you feel (personally) about gun control, would you consider publishing what this editor did?

Should magazines and news platforms be able to have political opinions?

Let me know what you all think :)

My opinion on guns lines up with @RobertMarsh. I'm very much pro guns, but also pro education and pro psychology. Instead of looking at the weapon wouldn't it make more sense to look at the mind? As far as the editor publishing his opinions I'm in direct agreement with @Kamiamon. He has a public platform. Why not publish it? We all should be able to voice our political opinions. I thought it was a smart move on his part. And we should all know by now that the news is highly biased. For example, FOX is pro-Republican and doesn't hide it. That's just life.
ultimately news platforms are run by people. people have opinions. I would publish it. If you have an opinion, and you have a platform, it's stupid NOT to say how you feel. Though most magazines publish filth, lies, and fluff those pieces are still written by people with opinions. For now, in the US our speech is still protected so why not? Is the editor of People now unrelatable because he has an opinion on gun control? Does his opinion have such weight that it tears at the fabric of your being and enrages you? That's your problem, not his.
@nicolejb I believe that if the magazine has the funds and the following that will listen, then they should use it to their best ability. But that's just my opinion.
Biased opinions do tend to sway the audience in one direction, usually for, or against the author. Most companies wouldn't want to risk that, but if it gets them more popularity then why not; although it's just a very touchy subject. As for how I feel personally about it gun control, I would've posted it. I have a hard time believing that America is filled with so many evil people, that they all are psychopaths. I feel that most murders are brought on by impulse, and could be prevented if people had to actually try to get a weapon. America is known for how easy it is to get a gun, and it's a huge catalyst for someone who wants to commit murder. People need to realize that all of these mass shootings aren't normal.
@tessstevens, "Objective" in this context, means focused on the object, which is the reported matter, and not on the subject, which is the reporter and her or his opinion. So of course, no reporter can be completely objective, and this is not what the readers expect, but those who believe in objective journalism say that the tendency should be, to be as objective as possible. My journalistic writing teacher used to tell us, "Think many times before you write, 'I' "...

What is erectile dysfunction (ED)? Is there a quick solution for it! ED is also known as male s e x u a l impotence and it can be medically defined as: “The inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have s e x u a l intercourse. It's sometimes referred to as impotence, although this term is now used less often. Occasional ED isn't uncommon. Frequent ED, however, can be a sign of health problems that need treatment.” Still Not Sure As To What Is Erectile Dysfunction? Erectile dysfunction is when: •You find it as good as impossible to get a hardon. •If by some stroke of luck you do get a hardon, you would not be able to keep it long enough for you to have s e x. The hardon you get (If you get one!), is too limp for you to have s e x. The Consequences of Having Erectile Dysfunction If you suffer from weakness of man in bed (ED), you will find that besides the fact that you would not be able to have s e x, you would be faced with all kinds of other issues such as: 1. Serious Relationship Issues: You would have loads and loads of relationship issues with your partner. As you would not be able to have s e x with your partner, your partner may feel that you are disinterested in her because she is no longer attractive to you physically. She may also feel that you do not want to have s e x with her, as you are having an affair with another person and having s e x with that person. 2. Anxiety: Anxiety would be a part of your persona, as a result of you not being able to have s e x. You would start to feel anxiety, for any and no reason at all. And, whenever it was time to go to bed, you would start to suffer from anxiety attacks, as you would not be able to have s e x with your partner. And if you have not told your partner that you are suffering from erectile dysfunction, your partner may want to have s e x. And when you do not have s e x, your partner would start to wonder what the matter is. And thus, your anxiety would start to reach new levels of high. 3. Low Self Esteem: You would not be in a very good place, with how you feel about yourself. All the time, you would feel lost and gloomy and wonder what is happening in your life and what future there is for you. You would start to feel very bad about yourself and have all kinds of negative feelings about yourself. At all times, you would feel awkward and that you are not loved. In such a sate, it would also be possible for others to hurt you very easily. Even when you are working, you would feel that you are incompetent and unable to do your job. 4. Mood Swings: All the time, you would have mood swings. These would happen anytime and anywhere. You would feel so suffocated by the fact that you cannot have s e x, your mood could change and become ugly, in an instant, with no warning. This would prove to be extremely bad for the people around you, as you can get abusive and even resort to attacking them. 5. Divorce: Your partner may not be understanding enough, after you have told her that you are suffering from impotence in men and she may leave you for another man, as she may desire to have s e x – and you are unable to give that to her! On the other hand, you may choose to hide the fact from your partner, that you are suffering from erectile dysfunction and this may result in your partner wondering what is wrong with you and why you do not wish have s e x with her. For some time, she may tolerate it, but then she may probe you and if you still refuse to tell her that you are s e x u a l l y impotent, she can form all kinds of conclusions about why you do not want to have s e x with her. Including, that you are interested in someone else. This could cause your partner to divorce you. 6. Unable to Get Your Partner Pregnant: Because you are suffering from erectile dysfunction, you would not be able to get your partner pregnant. This would definitely cause a lot of unrest, as your partner may desire to have a child and as you are impotent, you would not be able to fulfill this desire of your partner. This could bring all kinds of problems in the home. And it could also cause you to have problems in the office, as this issue would definitely play on your mind when you are at work – and it is sure to affect your job at some point in time. 7. Embarrassment: You would feel embarrassed, in and out of the bedroom, whenever you come across your partner. Out of the bedroom, you would feel embarrassed when you come across your partner, as the thought would constantly be in your mind, that you are unable to have s e x, as you are unable to get an erection. In the bedroom you would feel even more embarrassed, as you would feel that your partner is thinking bad of you, as you are not ‘man enough’ to have s e x with her. And in fact, this embarrassment could be felt within you, even when you are out of the house and on the road, the office or any other place. This is because in your subconscious, you would have that nagging feeling that you are not able to get an erection and that something is wrong with you. 8. Depression: Because of the fact that you are impotent, you can start to feel depressed and if this is not dealt with, this could get really bad. Depression must never be taken lightly, as even though it might be very common in a number of people today, it is a serious medical illness. Depression can affect you very badly and it can negatively change the way you behave, the way you think and the way you feel. When you get depressed, you will begin to feel very sad and you will also lose all interest in the things that you once enjoyed. Depression would ruin your personal life, your family life and your professional life. And the root of all this would lie in you suffering from erectile dysfunction. 9. Late from Work or Late Night House Parties: When you suffer from erectile dysfunction, you would come home late from work always, so that you will not be asked to have s e x. Or you will make it a point to have late night parties when you are at home, this way people will be at your place till late and your partner would not ask you to have s ex after the party gets over late at night. Is There A Quick Solution For Erectile Dysfunction? The answer to this is very simple! If you want something good to happen in your life, you need to have patience and wait for it to happen.
