NRA takes on the New York Times
The National Rifle Association is taking the gloves off against the New York Times. In a new video for NRA TV, Dana Loesch tears into the Times for what she says is the paper's cavalier attitude toward the truth:
"We are going to 'fisk' the New York Times and find out just what 'deep and rich' means to this old gray hag, this untrustworthy, dishonest rag that has subsisted on the welfare of mediocrity for one, two, three, more decades. We're going to laser-focus on your so-called 'honest pursuit of truth.' In short, we're coming for you."
"We the people have had it. We've had it with your narratives, your propaganda, your fake news. 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. And we've had it with your pretentious, tone-deaf assertion that you are in any way truth or fact-based journalism."
The press does need to be held accountable for its stories -- particularly when those stories push a particular point of view (something the Times insists it doesn't do, but yeah -- it always has). We also remember the old saying that you shouldn't pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel.
But that was coined in the days when newspapers carried more weight than many of them do today.
