“Discovery needs to bring this show back. People die in cars every day but they have never banned a show about cars!!” Comments like these litter Discovery Channel’s American Guns Facebook page. Three days after the horrific school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, Fox News reported Discovery Channel cancelled the television show American Guns. Fox News wrote that Discovery buckled over the pressure the channel was getting from Facebook comments and Tweets demanding them to cancel gun-related programming. However, in the same report, Fox News says that a Discovery Channel representative did not say the Newtown school shooting had anything to do with the decision to cancel the show.
