Parkland School Shooting
Over the past several days, in contrast with the other networks, Fox News Channel has been giving attention to one of the Parkland parents who is pro-gun and blames President Barack Obama and other Democrats for school policies making it easier for Nikolas Cruz to murder his daughter, Meadow, and 16 other students at Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. Andrew Pollack has appeared on a number of Fox News shows to promote his new book, Why Meadow Died, which gives the results of his own investigative efforts into the school's history of covering up Cruz's severe behavioral problems that should have already landed him with a criminal record, making it harder for him to purchase his murder weapon.
On Monday afternoon, Andrea Mitchell used her MSNBC show to give gun control activist Fred Guttenberg an unchallenged forum to bash Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and advocate for universal background checks. Mitchell went along with him by citing misleading polls alleging near unanimous support for such reforms by the public.
Parkland school shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv made headlines this week after he revealed Harvard had rescinded his acceptance into the Ivy league school after racial slurs he texted at 16 years old were leaked to the media. A liberal mob called for the gun-rights activist to be punished for repeatedly using “n-word” in a group text with friends. On MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle Tuesday morning, the host brought on race-baiting expert Eddie Glaude and anti-Trumper David Jolly to deny there was any anti-conservative bias in the matter, with Glaude slamming Kashuv’s white privilege, and Jolly arguing that Kashuv was dangerous.
At CNN, the once-proud network has ceased becoming a true news organization with a distinct line between anchors/hosts vs. analysts vs. commentators vs. reporters, but instead a place in which all groups provide up hot takes and snide remarks. And that was on display during Tuesday afternoons’s CNN Newsroom as host Brooke Baldwin and New Day’s Alisyn Camerota cheered the far-left activism of the Hogg family, hailed the March for Our Lives as having given them “goosebumps,” and pushing Australian-style mass gun confiscation to “fix” mass shootings.
WASHINGTON — Have you heard the good news? Large numbers of students worldwide are going to be skipping school on Fridays until they educate us on the perils of global warming. Moreover, they “are declaring the era of American climate change denialism over.” Those are the words of Alexandria Villasenor, who is 13 years old. She was addressing a crowd in front of the United Nations building in New York City.
You probably remember CNN’s town hall to promote gun control and gun grabbing in Parkland, Florida last year. It’s hard to forget such a disgraceful display of exploitation, naked partisanship, and vile hatred. Oh, and let’s not overlook the fact that host Jake Tapper was the ring leader enabling the circus. On Tuesday, the Norman Lear Center bestowed there Walter Cronkite Award “for excellence in television political journalism” on CNN and Tapper for their effort.
The innocent event of a parade was used to spout anti-gun dialogue because, if you listen to the doctors on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, random gunfire is everywhere and no one is able to avoid being a victim.
On Thursday, as the network morning shows marked the one-year anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead, reporters touted how student activists demanding gun control “will never stop” and were “keeping up the momentum” for new Second Amendment restrictions.
The media are using the one year anniversary of the Parkland, Florida shooting to push for more gun control. It’s something they started doing immediately after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.The following is a collection of the media’s ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters after the Parkland, Florida shooting.
During Saturday’s edition of Watters’ World, Fox News host Jesse Watters brought up a blaring double standard when it comes to the media’s treatment of children: “Remember the Parkland shooter situation where everybody was going after the students and people immediately said you cannot go after students, you cannot say anything about students, they’re minors?”
For a year that featured Joy Behar’s anti-Christian tirade on The View, faux conservatives making fools of themselves on cable news, Jim Acosta’s nuttiness, and Samantha Bee’s ugly use of the c-word against First Daughter Ivanka Trump, 2018 provided an inordinate amount of content for the NewsBusters staff. Following the precedent set in 2016 and 2017, the following post gives you, the readers, a look at the top ten posts of 2018 based on traffic.
Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos’ Facebook Watch show confirms all our worst suspicions about the editorial direction of the show. Its year-end episode, in particular, represents a tripling down on Ramos’ activist impulses, and openly cheerleads for liberal activists of all stripes.
