DC – Media – How the N.R.A. Manipulates Gun Owners and the Media

THE NEW YORKER.COM August 11, 2017 – An axiom of digital video strategy nowadays is that different types of videos are better suited for different platforms. This particular segment (a Dana Loesch NRA video), it turned out, worked well for social media, attracting, as of late this week, a hundred and twenty-three thousand views on Facebook, along with fourteen hundred retweets and more than twenty-four hundred likes on Twitter. …

DC – Media – Why the NRA is going after the media

WASHINGTON POST August 4, 2017 – At the Conservative Political Action Conference in February, NRA head Wayne LaPierre gave a remarkable speech during which he offered up a vast, loosely aggregated opposition that was the new threat for gun owners to fear: “leftists,” anarchists, criminals and, of course, “national media machine. For the first time, we also face an enemy utterly dedicated to destroy not just our country, but also Western…

VA – Media – The Total Disconnect On Guns And Crime

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) July 24, 2017 – The horrendous attack on a GOP congressional baseball practice, which occurred just before deadline for this issue, taught me something about the anti-gun mindset that I guess I never truly understood before—and it was a startling revelation. Anti-gunners from gun-ban groups and within the so-called “mainstream” media apparently assumed that just because the attacker had targeted Republican congressmen, those same legislators would immediately…

DC – Media – NRA, eschewing talk of guns, ratchets up rhetoric (VIDEO)

FOX NEWS July 20, 2017 – Buoyed by soaring gun sales and a White House supportive of its efforts, the National Rifle Association has charted a new course in its messaging, employing the group’s sophisticated communications apparatus to attack liberal politicians and activist groups, as well as mainstream news outlets. When the Washington Post noted the pivot in an article headlined “NRA’s Dark New Video Talks Politics, Not Guns,” the group…

NRA lashes out at Wa-Po: You people do more to damage our country with a keyboard than any NRA member … (VIDEO)

BIZPAC REVIEW.COM July 18, 2017 – The NRA raised the “clenched fist of truth” against The Washington Post in a new video calling out the publication for promoting the “violent left.” The National Rifle Association video, released Monday, called the Post a “fake news outlet” and accused the newspaper of attacking Second Amendment gun rights and “doing damage to the country.” “Your paper’s new slogan may read ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness’ — it…

Nat’l – Media – Univision Continues Smearing Lawful Gun Owners With Propaganda (VIDEO)

NEWSBUSTERS.ORG July 18, 2017 – When only one side of a controversial public policy issue is presented, you know you’re watching propaganda, not news. This is exactly what Univision pushes out, as part of its ongoing effort to smear lawful gun owners. Here is how anchor Enrique Acevedo characterized last week’s “NRA to DOJ March” on Univision’s late-night national news. The protesters emphasized that those who support the sale of firearms…

How news organizations, including this one, unintentionally misinformed the public on guns

DALLAS MORNING NEWS June 27, 2017 – Steve Doud, a subscriber from Plano, emailed me to say he’d read something in the June 21 Dallas Morning News that couldn’t possibly be true. An eight-paragraph Washington Post article on page 10A reported on a national study about kids and guns. The last sentence said 4.2 percent of American kids have witnessed a shooting in the past year. “Really?” Doud wrote. “Does it really sound believable that…

VA – Media – Watch Out For These Anti-Gun Words And Phrases

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) June 26, 2017 – In case you haven’t noticed, gun ban advocates have their own code, using words in different ways than they were meant to be used in order to suit their purposes. For Second Amendment advocates, recognizing those words and phrases—and knowing what they really mean—is an important step in the battle to stop those who would kill the right to keep and bear…

The Washington Post Bashes Guns With Bogus Facts

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) June 22, 2017 – This week, The Washington Post ran an editorial titled “Children are dying because of America’s lax gun policies” that blames the NRA and American freedom for the deaths of nearly “1,300 children” per year. By using accidental shootings for three of its five examples, the Post editorial pushes the perception that most, if not all, of the 1,300 deaths are accidental fatalities. Most of the…

DC – Media – Media Continues to Push Activists’ Count of Mass Shootings

WASHINGTON FREE BEACON June 16, 2017 – In the wake of Wednesday’s attack on Republican congressmen at a park in Alexandria, Virginia, a number of national media outlets have published activists’ claim that there have been more than 150 mass shootings in the United States so far this year.

HOW THE LEFT SEES US: NYC – Media – How American politics became consumed with hate

THE WEEK.COM June 14, 2017 -It’s risky to make snap judgments in the wake of an event like Wednesday’s congressional baseball practice shooting. Facts are murky and the initial reports are often wrong. It is easy to make sweeping generalizations about the underlying cause that always seem to confirm our beliefs. But there is a sickness in our political climate. Nearly two decades into our status as a 50-50 country,…

HOW THE LEFT SEES US: NYC – Media – Politicize It.

ESQUIRE.COM June 14, 2017 – Politicization of gun violence is part of democracy, regardless of how offended the NRA feigns to be. Mass shootings are a normal facet of American life at this point. Without some twist, like victims from law enforcement or small school children, they no longer even command a day’s attention from major television networks. It’s not even new to have a member of Congress as…

HOW THE LEFT SEES US: NYC – Media – MSNBC Analyst Who Called for Terrorist Attack Now Bashing Guns for Today’s (Wednesday’s) Shooting

NEWS BUSTERS.COM June 14, 2017 – After journalists and celebrities gushed about gun control on Twitter after this morning’s shooting of GOP Rep. Steve Scalise, some members of the media took their partisan advocacy on air. MSNBC’s counter-terrorism expert Malcolm Nance admitted to anchor Brian Williams during the 11 am hour, that he cared less about the motives behind today’s shooting than how the shooter obtained his gun. 

HOW THE LEFT SEES US: NYC – Media – Lessons of the “baseball shooting”: Gun violence feeds on itself — and even now, Republicans won’t listen (VIDEO)

SALON.COM June 14, 2017 – Wednesday’s terrifying assault on a group of Republican congressmen at baseball practice demonstrated that no one is protected from the violence that plagues a country where gun industry profits and culture-war politics have turned guns into fetish objects and have made reasonable gun safety policies nearly impossible to enact. No one is spared, not even those who have done so much to make it easy for any madman with a…

DC – Media – Washington Post’s Orlando retrospective dwells on ‘gun violence,’ omits terrorism and ISIS (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON TIMES June 13, 2017 – It seems like it would be difficult to write a 1,000-plus-word article on the deadliest shooting rampage in recent U.S. history and make no mention of the killer’s motivations and allegiances. The Washington Post, however, found a way. On Monday, the one-year anniversary of a shooting spree at a popular nightclub in Orlando, Fla., the paper published a retrospective titled, “A year ago,…

DC – Media – Ambush: WaPo snubbed NRA ‘silencer shoot’ before damning suppressors

WASHINGTON EXAMINER June 12, 2017 – In a bid to promote legislation to ease the purchase of gun suppressors, several gun groups have been offering special “silencer shoots” to news media to show the potential benefits of quieter shots and reality that they really don’t silent the weapons. One of the groups, the National Rifle Association, sent an invite to the Washington Post last month, which has been critical…

VA – MEDIA – “Kid” Confusion: Cooking The Books To Push An Anti-Gun Agenda

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) June 5, 2017 – Consider these disturbing nuggets: “16 U.S. children hospitalized with gunshot wounds each day, study says” — CNN. “Guns Send About 16 Kids to the Hospital Every Day” — WebMD. “16 Kids Hospitalized Each Day For Gun Injuries, Study Finds” — CBS’ Philadelphia affiliate. Seeing such reports is indeed disturbing. It conjures images of 4-year-olds getting gunned down in the streets, and 9-year-olds…

DEADLINE.COM May 31, 2017 – Turns out that lawsuit over the Katie Couric-backed documentary Under the Gun was firing blanks.
