El Paso/Dayton shootings
In the wake of the shootings in Dayton and El Paso, the ferocity of vitriol aimed at the President Trump has passed the threshold into insanity. On Tuesday’s The Story, Fox News MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz pointed out the blatantly obvious irony that the media is replicating the same erratic behavior they accuse the President of displaying.
Univision aired its special, titled “Hispanics in the Crosshairs”, in the immediate aftermath of the horrendous shooting at El Paso, Texas. Unfortunately, the network squandered valuable time and goodwill by lending its platform to one of the most incendiary voices in any community, let alone the Hispanic community.
On Wednesday's New Day show, CNN was still showing its transparent bias in favor of more restrictions on gun rights as gun control skeptic Congressman Brian Babin was pressed on his views while supporters of gun control were allow to give their prescriptions for more gun control with little challenge.
In the midst of President Trump visiting with victims of the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso on Wednesday, on MSNBC, presidential historian and regular liberal pundit Jon Meacham bemoaned Trump’s response to the attacks and even derided his Monday White House address denouncing them as a “hostage video.”
A ghoulish Stephenie Ruhle on Tuesday promoted the idea that 2020 Democrat Beto O’Rourke could use the mass slaughter in El Paso this past weekend as a way to gain “momentum” for his floundering presidential campaign. She wondered, “Beto has said he is running in the name of decency and democracy. As bad as this may sound, could this moment be a chance for Beto to gain some momentum?”
The press hit the lowest of lows (if that wasn’t already surpassed) when they asserted President Trump was responsible for the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso. They capitalized on the anti-immigrant beliefs held by the El Paso shooter to do so, while evading the leftist ideology of the Dayton killer. On Fox News Tuesday, The Five exposed the stories the liberal media concealed over the weekend in order to further their leftist agenda.
Wednesday night’s CNN show trial was just as hideously horrible as one could have predicted when it came to promoting gun control and confiscation in the wake of the El Paso and Dayton shootings (so just like the first one). At around 10:00 p.m. Eastern, Antifa supporter, judge, and jury Chris Cuomo’s dismissal (along with his panelists) of a female gun owner showed an invective toward those who don’t share their worldview. And at another point, Cuomo offered a truly insane falsehood about the 1990s assault weapons ban.
While Wednesday night’s mass shooting town hall on CNN wasn’t as raucous as their Parkland show trial, it was every bit as anti-gun. And only that opinion mattered. Host Chris Cuomo stated as much when he teased his closing argument. He even went so far as to openly mock those who opposed his belief in sweeping gun control, including weapon bans.
At the top of CNN’s anti-gun town hall, Wednesday, host and Antifa terrorist backer Chris Cuomo lashed out at the National Rifle Association for not subjecting themselves to the hate and rhetorical torture session they were treated to at the Parkland shooting town hall last year.
We can officially classify the USA Today's Jarrett Bell as a multi-tasking sports writer and social justice warrior. He's earned his spurs ― if that isn't too militaristic a word for sensitive progressives ― especially after today's puff piece lathering praise upon the Miami Dolphins' receiver/anthem kneeler Kenny Stills. Bell writes that "Activist and Trump critic Kenny Stills is the kind of player every NFL team needs".
President Trump flew to Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas on Wednesday to visit with wounded and pay his respects to the people who were killed in a pair of mass shootings over the weekend. Instead of that kicking off their political overage for the night, CBS Evening News chose to champion former Vice President and Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden for tearing into the President while campaigning in Iowa.
The Columbia Journalism Review interviewed New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet over the Times changing its Tuesday morning lead headline after a left-wing social media mob complained it wasn’t sufficiently hostile to President Trump, in the wake of the mass murders in El Paso and Dayton. The paper’s own “Reader Center” also issued a mea culpa in “A Times Headline About Trump Stoked Anger. A Top Editor Explains."
