NBC Shames Senators Who Voted Against Background Checks

I think this video is a great example of how news networks can sway politics.  In this NBC segment, anchors Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough discuss their outrage about the proposal not passing Senate, despite it being supported by 90% of the American public.

6:15 - 8:15 are particularly interesting to me because they talk about shaming the congresspeople who voted against the proposal by displaying their photographs on the screen throughout the day (at the beginning of the segment they showed photographs of the 4 Republicans who voted for the bill, honoring them).
