Former mayor and current day gun grabber, Michael Bloomberg, is developing a fake “news” operation to run alongside his anti-Second Amendment group, “Everytown for Gun Safety”. It will be as accurate as the Iranian news service only it will be propaganda aimed at legislating our Second Amendment into oblivion.
He already has the mainstream. The New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC and other left-wing media are malignantly anti-gun, but that is not enough.
Bloomberg hired former New Republic editor James Burnett (NR is a very leftist publication) and Jennifer Mascia, formerly of the New York Times. She will be the faux “news” and editorial assistant. If nothing else, her hiring makes it so clear that the NY Times is one anti-gun outlet.
Nanny Bloomberg, who wants to tell people how much salt, soda, and sugar they can have, who wants to order mothers to breast feed, thinks he has the right to take our guns away. This is not about reasonable or sensible gun control.
Bloomberg already uses his media empire to attack our rights, particularly gun rights. A favorite target is the NRA but he fights for anything left-wing.
The bogus reports and creative press releases are treated as newsworthy by the left media and their “investigative journalism” is gun control advocacy.
Bloomberg is an ego-driven leftist on a mission with the wealth to back it up.
Everytown is running their anti-gun indoctrination camp for “journalists” today and tomorrow. In concert with the Columbia Journalism School’s Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, they will offer journalists a workshop in “guns and gun violence” in Phoenix. It will feature carefully-selected “independent expert briefings and specialized reporting skills training to enhance the practical ability of journalists to report on guns and gun violence knowledgeably, ethically and effectively.”
It’s a one-sided affair posing as independent. It’s a perversion of the norms of journalism. No longer journalists, the media hacks will go forward and sound the alarm based on false data and “ethical” demands by people who think all morality is relative.
President Obama recently said we have to “change how the media reports”. This is undoubtedly what he meant.
Stephanopoulos is an example of an effective move by a partisan hack to faux mainstream news. Candy Crowley was another. There are countless examples.
The Constitution has a powerful and rich enemy. It’s up against politicians, Hollywood, academia, big media, medical professionals and now we have Bloomberg anti-gun media to distort the facts.
They want the guns of law-abiding gun owners because they feel getting guns off the street – anyone’s guns – is better than nothing. Of course they will never get the guns from the criminals and any terrorists flowing across our borders.
If you think they don’t want to end the Second Amendment and only want to control guns, you need to look at some of the legislation they’ve tried to get passed in liberal states like New York. Don’t think for a minute that they believe in the Second Amendment.
