MSNBC Ignores Woman Who Used Gun to Save Her Children from Carjacker

Between Thursday evening and Friday morning, most of the networks ran at least one report on a mother in Dallas who shot a carjacker as he tried to steal her car while her two young children were still inside. 

But the far-left MSNBC has been true to form in not making any room during its 24 hour a day airtime to give any attention to this story of a woman using a gun to defend her children which even CNN made room for a few times. CBS also has not given any attention to the story so far.

 

 

On Thursday evening, the NBC Nightly News gave it a minute and 20 seconds, and the Today show followed up on Friday morning with a full report of more than two minutes. ABC's World News Tonight gave it a 21-second brief on Thursday.

On Friday morning, FNC gave the story five briefs between 4:30 a.m. and 9:15 a.m. Eastern, while CNN gave it three briefs between 4:30 a.m. and 10:58 a.m. -- on once on Early Start and twice on CNN Newsroom, substitute hosted by Erin Hill.

The night before, NBC correspondent Katie Beck recalled that, on Wednesday night, Dallas resident Michelle Booker-Hicks stopped to get gas, and, after returning to her SUV, a man was inside her vehicle, and tried to drive away while her two toddlers were still inside.

Booker-Hicks got into the vehicle, retrieved her gun from the glove compartment, and shot him, forcing the vehicle to crash, but thankfully not injuring her or her children.
