One unfortunate result of the past few violent days is trying to decide who’s to blame for all the gun-related deaths and injuries that occurred in Texas, Ohio and Illinois. A particularly nasty clash involved Joe Scarborough, co-host of the Morning Joe weekday program on MSNBC, and Dana Loesch, a former spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association.
On April 30, liberal comedian Stephen Colbert took a momentary break from his constant slams on President Trump to focus on some other favorite targets of the CBS Late Show host: the National Rifle Association and the organization’s spokeswoman, Dana Loesch.
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.
On the front page of Tuesday’s New York Times, reporter Danny Hakim asked another question only liberals are asking: “What Is Making N.R.A. Cringe? Its Own Videos -- 2 Leaders Air Concerns About Incendiary Online Pulpit.” The Times used an internal debate over the streaming service as a jumping-off point for an exaggerated and hypocritical attack on the gun-rights group’s streaming service NRATV (and especially host Dana Loesch, whom the Times has recently elevated into a "villain") accusing it of "inflammatory" rhetoric while letting an enemy smear it as a "terrorist organization."
The front of the New York Times Sunday Review featured “Think Like a Libel Lawyer,” by David McCraw, press lawyer for the New York Times. He strikes a straight-shooting pose discussing his work vetting stories before publication, while naming who the paper considers villains, a list that includes gun-rights activist Dana Loesch and the National Rifle Association: "I am all about the villains in many pieces -- for a libel lawyer, a little sympathy for the villain is almost an occupational requirement." So what sort of evildoers serve as the paper’s designated “villains”? Besides former Trump aide Steve Bannon there was...Dana Loesch and the National Rifle Association.
On social media, hate speech will be swiftly removed. Unless the victim is perceived to be on the wrong side of the conversation. Conservative commentator, radio host, and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch tweeted a screenshot of a comment she received from a Twitter user on August 26. The tweet stated that in order for Loesch to understand a point, she would need to have her children murdered. Loesch had reported the tweet to Twitter Support, but Twitter notified her saying, “We have reviewed your report carefully and found that there was no violation of the Twitter Rules against abusive behavior.”
CNN's Brian Stelter and NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch got into a Twitter spat Monday evening over the press's handling of the story behind Getty Images photographer John Moore's "iconic" photo of a crying 2-year-old little girl at the U.S.-Mexico border. As usual, Loesch wiped the floor with the network's Reliable Sources host. During the back-and-forth, Stelter responded to Loesch's criticism of CNN's original story about the photo by pointing to a sentence stating that "A spokesman for US Customs and Border Protection later told CNN that the girl and her mother were not separated." What he really pointed to was an undisclosed stealth edit the network apparently hoped no one would see.
Comedy Central’s lame replacement for the Colbert Report, The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, is even worse than Colbert at disguising their liberal agitprop as hiding behind a mask of idiotic conservatism. On Tuesday night, Klepper brought on his cast mates Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson, pitched on screen as "Authors of F**k the Poor: A Conservative Guide to Comedy.”
On Sunday's AM Joy, the show's panel of former Republicans joined far-left host Joy Reid in freaking out over the idea of encouraging some school teachers to carry concealed weapons to combat attacks on schools with Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin calling it President Donald Trump's "dumbest idea," Michelle Bernard fretting that teachers will shoot black students, and Kurt Bardella excoriating NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch as a "paid mercenary" who "has no soul," and is displaying "idiocy."
In Tuesday’s edition of CNN debasing itself, CNN.com flaunted Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Emma González surpassing Dana Loesch and the NRA in Twitter followers thanks to their criticism-free coverage of Parkland students who survived the horrifying February 14 shooting.
Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan is tweeting out her latest column with this copy: "Why is the NRA attacking the reality-based press? For the same reason Trump does." She claimed the NRA is terribly wrong "about the news media as their adversary." For someone who boasts their advocacy for a "reality-based press," how can it be claimed that the media doesn't oppose the NRA?
In what seemed like an effort for them to have their own NRA smear-fest similar to CNN’s, ABC’s This Week hosted both NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch and anti-gun Parkland student David Hogg. And as would be expected, Loesch owned host George Stephanopoulos because of his profound ignorance on guns and his leftist politics. When the schooling was over, he turned to Hogg and let him smear gun rights advocates.
