Las Vegas Shooting
After repeatedly demanding a “national dialogue” about gun control throughout NBC’s special coverage of the Las Vegas shooting on Monday, on Tuesday, the former Nightly News anchor abandoned any pretense of being a journalist as he slammed gun owners and urged liberal viewers to politically “organize” against the National Rifle Association.
In the aftermath of the massacre in Las Vegas, late-night comedian turned moral scold Jimmy Kimmel excoriated the GOP for “letting the gun lobby run this country,” and New York Times Giovanni Russonello praised the host for acting as a social conscience” and calling out Republicans and the National Rifle Association, in his Best of Late Night rundown Tuesday morning: “Jimmy Kimmel Seizes on Las Vegas Shooting to Champion Gun Laws in Emotional Monologue.”
Late night comedy host Jimmy Kimmel opened his show Monday night with a 10-minute-long emotional monologue on the Sunday night massacre in Las Vegas. While the White House called for a day of mourning for the victims of the horrific tragedy, the ABC host called for pointing fingers instead. Kimmel crassly blamed the violence of one lunatic on millions of responsible gun owners, Trump, and Republicans.
For much of Monday, MSNBC had disgraced anchorman Brian Williams hosting their Las Vegas shooting aftermath coverage. During the five P.M. hour, which was usually reserved for MTP Daily, Williams had Connecticut Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal on to smear Congressional Republicans a “complicit” the murder of 59 people and injury of 527 others. He even used the deaths of the first graders in Sandy Hook to do it.
The liberal media’s favorite late night shill and self-described pizza eating expert, Jimmy Kimmel used his show the day after the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada to push for gun control while smearing Congressional Republicans for helping to cause the bloodshed. “They should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country because it’s so crazy,” the emotional Kimmel exclaimed to his audience.
Several hours after the horrific mass shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, law enforcement officials were still searching for what motivated the shooter who killed 59 and wounded 527 people. And despite President Trump calling the shooting “pure evil” on Monday, both ABC and CBS were upset that he had yet to label the massacre as terrorism.
It didn’t take long on Monday for the liberal media to start calling for sweeping legislation restricting every Americans’ right to keep and bear arms in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada. Among the day’s false reports about how suppressors work and the overblown availability of fully automatic weapons, the Big Three Networks complained that not much was going to get done to push their anti-Second Amendment agenda while Trump was in office.
On Monday’s daily White House briefing, journalists went into overdrive pushing for Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders to talk about gun control and what President Trump was planning on doing policy-wise with respect to Sunday night’s mass shooting in Las Vegas.
According to one former agnostic, he survived the Las Vegas shooting for a reason – God’s reason. On Monday’s CNN New Day, fill-in anchor John Berman interviewed 21-year-old Taylor Benge who attended the Las Vegas country music concert where a gunman ruthlessly killed at least 58 and injured more than 500 Sunday night.
During NBC’s 11 a.m. ET hour special coverage of the Las Vegas shooting on Monday, White House Correspondent Hallie Jackson seemed disappointed that President Trump “did not mention guns or gun control” in his address to the nation following the attack. “I will tell you that from my vantage point here inside the Beltway, that is where the conversation is headed over on Capitol Hill among lawmakers who are already coming out,” the reporter added.
Monday’s broadcast of Morning Joe was entirely taken up by coverage of the previous night’s mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed more than fifty and wounded hundreds more. However, even with a dearth of information about the killer and his weapons, only knowing for sure that they were capable of fully automatic fire, MSNBC still found time to speculate that a lack of gun control was at least partly responsible for the carnage.
