Popular Conservative pundit and NRA spokeswoman, Dana Loesch, has released a new video calling out the New York Times for their bias, dishonesty and subservient compliance with the Democrat party. She berates them for being complicit with their “Democrat Overlords” and lets them know that the NRA now firmly has them in their sites.
The NRA has in recent history been very politically active; casting their support for candidates is often a good indicator of the candidate’s likely success or failure, but to actually target a News Agency is quite a big leap. And this isn’t a one-off. Just last month, Loesch took the Washington Post to task in a video because of their anti-2nd Amendment stance. It seems the NRA is willing to start getting their hands dirty in the political arena.

And organizations like the NRA should be involved in politics; as long as they don’t lose sight of their main purpose…Protect the 2nd Amendment.
Loesch was unapologetic in her video, saying:
“We’ve had it with your constant protection of your Democrat overlords, your refusal to acknowledge any truth that upsets the fragile construct that you believe is real life,” Loesch said “And we’ve had it with your pretentious, tone-deaf assertion that you are in any way truth or fact-based journalism.” These are sentiments that will resonate with voters who are sick and tired of a biased media pushing only one side of the story.
The same could be argued against the other side of the equation; that the more Conservative sites only report “good news” about President Trump. But there is a difference: the sites that focus on the Conservative, Libertarian, and basic Right wing politics don’t claim to be the communication conduit between the government and the people. They do not have all access passes to the White House press briefings, and they do not get to sit down with the President and do a face to face interview. That’s the difference.
The MSM has become a filter. They can some things and allows others…therefore they have a greater responsibility to be as honest, open and non-biased as possible. There will always be an editorial slant, but the uneven coverage and the cover-ups are a major issue; it is no wonder that people are turning away from them in droves.
Perhaps the best way forward would be to widen the net on who has access? It may be more chaotic at first, but the media would all have to tighten up their game and start appealing to the widest possible audience. And the way to get the widest audience? – Tell the facts!
