March for Our Lives
Between long cuts to the so-called March for Our Lives rally to broadcast musical performances by leftist celebrities and obnoxious kids pushing gun control while accusing Republicans of being complicit with school shootings, MSNBC would chime in with their own cavalcade of left-wing political advocates cheering them on. During one such cut away, disgraced anchor Brian Williams and Al Sharpton boasted about how the kids were taking charge of their gun control efforts.
Saturday was marked the so-called March for Our Lives rally where gun control advocates descended on Washington, DC to call for restrictions on Americans’ gun rights. Liberal journalists rejoiced as the event allowed them to put aside the illusion they were objective reporters and become active participants. MSNBC start the day off with Ali Velshi and Alex Witt attacking the NRA by claiming they didn’t want safer schools, shamming politicians who received donations, and dismissing those who prayed for victims.
Giving viewers a preview of their gushy Saturday coverage for the pro-gun control March for Our Lives, NBC Nightly News willfully played the role of stenographer for the radical students and their incendiary leader David Hogg, touting the “massive,” “powerful,” and “remarkable” event akin to the Vietnam War protests even though it hasn’t even happened yet.
Don’t expect any balance or objectivity in how the media will cover Saturday’s March for Our Lives rally. What is actually a call for massive gun control was portrayed by NBC’s Today show on Friday as a “protest voice” to “teach the grown-ups a lesson.”
Ahead of Saturday’s anti-gun, liberal media-supported March for Our Lives, Friday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom showed just how far left most of the network lies on the spectrum. “Fake news hypocrite” host Brooke Baldwin openly tag-teamed with the Michael Bloomberg-funded, pro-gun control Everytown for Gun Safety for over 14 minutes of discussion with families who’ve lost loved ones to gun violence but now demand gun control.
Here’s your daily reminder of how pathetic CNN has become. On Wednesday morning, pro-Second Amendment Parkland student Kyle Kashuv claimed that his long-awaited CNN interview was canceled just hours beforehand. He said that CNN cited a Clay Travis retweet calling out Brooke Baldwin for being a “fake news hypocrite.” Travis, of course, is the sports commentator who was booted off Baldwin’s CNN Newsroom in September for saying “boobs.”
Tuesday was marked by multiple tragedies, between the package bombings in and around Austin, Texas and a school shooting in Great Mills, Maryland. ABC didn't seem to want a good tragedy to go to waste, so their evening news broadcast used a portion of their school shooting coverage to promote a gun control march, which was planned to take place in Washington, D.C. later in the week.
Displaying the liberal cable channel’s eager anticipation for Saturday’s gun control protest in Washington D.C., the March for Our Lives, on Monday, MSNBC aired a gushing ad celebrating the movement to restrict gun rights.
Teenage students lobbying for strict new gun control laws appeared on all three networks on Monday and were hailed as “superheroes” and “voices of a generation.” In total, ABC, CBS and NBC devoted 19 minutes and 14 seconds to various young adults from the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. None of the networks asked these teens any tough questions about exactly how many guns they want to take away and what is the end game for their efforts.
In roughly 14 minutes on Sunday’s 60 Minutes, CBS offered another pitifully fact-check-free piece on behalf of the liberal media about the far-left, pro-gun control Parkland survivors. It declined to seriously push back on the ugly, violent rhetoric by some students since the February 14 massacre. Correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi played stenographer as the anti-Second Amendment infomercial ignored students like Kyle Kashuv and parents like Ryan Petty because their opinions aren’t welcome.
On Thursday afternoon, a Washington Post email carried a very misleading headline, which was “‘March For Our Lives’ gun-control rally bumped from Mall by ‘talent show’.” The headline in Friday's newspaper was similar, "'March for our Lives' rally bumped from Mall." It sounds like a Trump conspiracy to interfere. The word “bumped” would imply the gun-control activists had secured a permit from the National Park Service, and were then “bumped.” Instead, permits are first come-first serve.
March 24th will be the “March for Our Lives,” an ostensibly nationwide demonstration led by student survivors of the Mary Stoneman Douglas school shooting in order to demand new gun laws. Traumatized young people pushing (or being used to push) a progressive agenda is too good to ignore for some Hollywood liberals.
