When Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough did the unthinkable and praised President Trump for holding a “listening session” with victims of gun violence, Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic editor-in-chief, said that his praise serves as an example of “the soft bigotry of low expectations.”


Over the past week, strict gun laws in Connecticut have been repeatedly touted on CNN as an example to be enacted nationally, with New Day host Alisyn Camerota pushing the laws the most frequently. The simplistic narrative has been promoted that there has been a "direct correlation" between the passage of new gun control in 2013 and lower numbers of homicides and violent incidents seen in the state the years since. But no mention has been made of the fact that two of the three most populous cities in Connecticut experienced a doubling of homicides in 2017 meaning that, after the numbers for the entire state are tallied, there will likely be a substantial increase in the state's total number of homicides from the previous year's levels.


Meghan McCain was the only one to hold ESPN’s Jemele Hill accountable for the incendiary comments she made about President Trump last September, on the View’s February 21 show.

 

While liberal journalists are exploiting the Parkland shooting tragedy to get more gun control legislation, including another “assault weapons” ban, what they’re not telling their viewers is they know it won’t work. Or at least that’s what CBS News’s Lesley Stahl recognized way back in 1999, when she admitted that the 1994 assault weapons ban did nothing to stop Columbine.


Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Thursday released a video message demanding that the sponsors of ABC’s The View stop subsidizing the show’s anti-Christian bigotry. Regarding the MRC’s campaign to hold ABC responsible for sliming Christianity as a “mental illness,” Bozell warned, “We’ve moved on to the advertisers.” 


Oh Washington Post, if you weren’t so wrong, how would we ever know what’s right?


Nina Burleigh really blew it this time. Wednesday morning, Newsweek retracted their reporter's Monday story on "How an Alt-Right Bot Network Took Down Al Franken." Newsweek's move leads to a bigger question: When will the Associated Press correct or retract reports claiming Florida high school massacre perpetrator Nikolas Cruz was connected with white nationalism?


On Thursday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today show highlighted Andrew Pollack, the father of 18-year-old Stoneman Douglas High School shooting victim Meadow Pollack, talking to President Trump during an emotional White House listening session on Wednesday on preventing such mass killings. However, both network broadcasts chose to edit out Pollack telling the President “It’s not about gun laws right now.”


On ABC’s February 22 show, The View hosts addressed the White House listening session and CNN town hall that occurred the day before on the Parkland school shooting, but spread some misinformation along the way, as usual.

 

While discussing President Trump's recent tweets about the gun debate on New Day Thursday morning, CNN political analyst Joshua Green suggested that the tweets serve as proof that the President is "flailing" and "doesn't know what he's doing."


NRA representative Dana Loesch on Thursday absolutely demolished a hypocritical, gun-grabbing media and politicians who don’t really do anything to keep mentally unbalanced people from buying guns. Appearing at the Conservative Political Action Conference, she prefaced: “I say this to the reporters in the media, I say this to the people at Slate and the Salon and Think Progress and Media Matters.” 


As they’ve done all week, ABC’s Good Morning America spent several reports touting the “impressive” and “passionate” teen gun control activists from Parkland, Florida, who met with President Trump yesterday at the White House and who screeched “murderer” at Florida Senator Marco Rubio and the NRA’s Dana Loesch at CNN’s ruckus, scripted “townhall” last night.

New York Times media reporter Michael Grynbaum smeared conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh as a Florida shooting conspiracist in “Dubious Theories on Shooting In Florida Find an Audience." Grynbaum opportunistically lumped Rush and former congressman Jack Kingston into conspiracists making nutty claims about “false flags” and “crisis actors.”


The Wednesday CNN town hall promoting gun bans and moderated by Jake Tapper was arguably a train wreck from the beginning. Between a student saying Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) reminded him of the shooter and shouts of ‘murderer’ at NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch, it was out of control. But in the wee hours of Thursday morning, things got worse for the anti-gun network when the local Florida ABC affiliate WPLG-TV reported that CNN had been planting questions.
