The Washington Post Spews Islamic State Propaganda

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) May 18, 2017 – If so-called “mainstream” media aren’t permitting spurious comparisons of National Rifle Association members to the barbaric terror group Islamic State, they are actually quoting the terrorist organization’s propaganda rag, Rumiya.

DC – Media – Goodbye To My Friend, Bob Owens

TOWNHALL.COM May 9, 2017 – Like many people, I first “met” Bob Owens through the Internet when he was running his own blog about firearms and other musings.

A few years back, Townhall Media…

NY – Media – ‘Not Liberal’ Publication Downtrend Slams ‘Liberal’ Saatchi & Saatchi For Gun Safety PSA (VIDEO)

MEDIA POST.COM April 27, 2017 – It’s common practice for ad agencies to take up causes and lend their creative superpowers towards giving a voice to those causes. It’s not so often, you see a right leaning publication take down those superpowers in a point by point take down of said agency’s so-called left leaning PSA. In this case, the left leaning agency is Saatchi & Saatchi and the…

NY – Media – New York Times Rails Against South Carolina’s Bill for Constitutional Carry

THE NEW AMERICAN.COM April 18, 2017 – Implying that all South Carolinians are rednecks interested only in carrying sidearms recklessly, the New York Times’ unwelcome but predictable insertion into the debate currently taking place in South Carolina’s state senate might impact its outcome.

NEWSBUSTERS.ORG April 18, 2017 – Based in a city that’s the murder capital of the country with some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, it was only a matter of time before NBC’s new spin-off show Chicago Justice dealt with the issue of guns.

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) April 14, 2017 – A few weeks ago, I filed away this letter from an NRA member chastising us for our use of a misleading media term: “I read with dismay your use of the term ‘gun violence’ TWICE in the February First Things First section. Incredible.

Thank You For Shooting—How Hollywood Can Get This One Right

AMERICA’S FIRST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) April 3, 2017 – The 2006 movie “Thank You for Smoking” is a masterpiece of satire. In the film, Aaron Eckhart starred as a spokesman for “Big Tobacco” named Nick Naylor. Nick was a master of spin. His quick smile and happy, slippery, but always seductive logic befuddled even politicians who hated him. Now Keshet Studios wants to adapt this Jason Reitman satire into an…

ND – Media – Why Is It So Impossible for the Media to Be Honest About Guns?

OBSERVER.COM March 30, 2017 – The latest misrepresentation about guns from the mainstream media revolves around “silencers.” In movies, James Bond or Jason Bourne attach a “silencer” to a gun and are instantly able to shoot anyone without being heard.
