Parkland School Shooting
After news broke that, on Thursday, a gunman trying to perpetrate a mass shooting in Oklahoma City was stopped by two armed citizens who used their own guns against him, FNC has given the story a substantial amount of attention while ABC and CBS have also run full stories on the event. But CNN barely touched the story, burying it between 4:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m Eastern in a couple of 25-second briefs Friday morning, while NBC and MSNBC have ignored it entirely.
In the wake of the horrific shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, celebrities seized the opportunity to do the same old song and dance on gun control at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, including one performer who prominently sported an anti-gun shirt on stage.
Una vez más, el presentador de noticias de Univisión Jorge Ramos comprueba que ningún argumento es impropio siempre y cuando fomente la agenda antiarmas de la cadena, ni siquiera una teoría de conspiración sin base fáctica.
Once again, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos proves that no argument is off limits so long as it advances the network’s gun control agenda, not even a conspiracy theory with no basis in fact.
Despite the fact that Friday’s alleged gunman in the despicable high school shooting in Santa Fe, TX used his father’s shotgun and .38 caliber revolver, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews shepherded through a discourteous opening panel of Democratic Congressman Joaquín Castro (TX), Moms Demand Action leader Shannon Watts, and Parkland, FL teacher Greg Pittman that showed an inability to grasp facts but rather an ability to hurl insults.
On New Day Sunday, CNN did something it does not typically do in that it actually allowed a pro-gun guest to be on and argue against the type of gun control pushed by liberal activists. Although Georgia gun dealer Hal Shouse was allowed to complain to CNN host Christi Paul about her failure to challenge anti-gun activist Cameron Kasky the day before, the segment also suffered from audio difficulties as he was appearing by Skype.
After President Donald Trump spoke to the National Rifle Association convention on Friday, CNN has not surprisingly reacted by bringing on liberal gun control activists and given them a mostly unchallenged forum to promote their agenda and bash gun rights supporters. On Friday night, Anderson Cooper spoke with Parkland student activists David Hogg and Cameron Kasky, and, the next morning, host Christi Paul spoke with Kasky on New Day Saturday.
Throughout MSNBC’s Friday coverage of student walk-outs across the country to demand gun control, the liberal cable channel’s anchors and correspondent could barely contain their excitement about the prospect of those anti-gun protesters mobilizing to vote pro-gun rights Republicans out of office in the November midterms.
More unseemly eagerness in Thursday’s New York Times to use the tragic murders in Parkland to help Democrats gain Congress, while weakening constitutional rights. Reporter Alan Blinder went to Helena, Montana searching out “red state” voters willing to reject the “iron rule” of supporting the National Rifle Association, which is "hard line," shows "belligerence," and demands "lock-step loyalty."
The New York Times shamelessly shoehorned gun control into Martin Luther King’s civil rights legacy by way of Richard Oppel Jr.’s tilted history lesson of the 1960s on Wednesday, “Killing Led, at Last, To Gun Restrictions,” part of the series “King’s Legacy: A Fight for Social Change.” Oppel lamented, in the paper’s alleged news section, that if only America had only been wise enough to pass severe gun restrictions generations ago we wouldn’t have a violence problem today.
The New York Times visited the district of a purportedly vulnerable Republican congresswoman to report “Gun Control and Fall Elections: Moment or Movement?” Reporting from Northern Virginia, Matt Flegenheimer and Jess Bidgood piled another log on the Democratic heat wave toward November, chiding gun rights advocates as sometimes offering "unsavory" tactics, while letting anti-gun teen activists be as classlass as they want to be: ""We’ll outlive them,' said Sean Monteith, 17, a junior at Lewiston High School, adding that he hoped his peers would be able to outvote them, too...."
Saturday's NBC Nightly News devoted an entire report to celebrating a high school government teacher in Parkland, Florida, who is being credited with "grooming" three of the "articulate" liberal student activists who have espoused "thoughtful arguments" in promoting more gun control. Correspondent Kerry Sanders even tried to undermine conservatives who had fretted that the students were being coached by liberals by informing viewers that the teacher in question is a "card-carrying Republican."
