The NRA Claims The Media Loves Mass Shootings, And Reporters Fired Back

The NRA Claims The Media Loves Mass Shootings, And Reporters Fired Back
Updated 3 months ago

Speaking in front of the  Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, NRA spoksperson Dana Loesch made this wildly out of touch statement:

 “Many in legacy media love mass shootings. You guys love it. I’m not saying you love the tragedy. But I am saying that you love the ratings. Crying white mothers are ratings gold… And notice I said crying white mothers because there are thousands of grieving black mothers in Chicago every weekend and you don’t see town halls for them do you?” 

Umm, perhaps Loesch missed this:

That wasn't the only lie Loesch told during her speech that was meant to be rile up conservatives. 

There was also this:

 And it was over 5K people. I had to have a security detail to get out. I wouldn’t have been able to exit that if I did not have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming ‘Burn her!’ And I came there to talk solutions. 

Video has surfaced proving this was also false. In the video Loesch can be seen leaving the stage without incident. No one is rushing the stage or approaching her as she exits. The crowd is merely chanting, "Shame on you!"

With all the lies she's telling, can you blame them?

But by far the most damning lie Loesch spewed at the conference was saying the media loved mass shootings. 

Many journalists took to Twitter to explain what it's really like covering mass shootings, over and over in this country:

Shame on her, indeed.
