If you remember, CNN severely fumbled covering the horrific Boston Bombing. Well, they have done it again with the DC Navy Base shootings. I do have to give them credit for being consistent at reporting bad news.
CNN reported that an AR-15 was used in the murders of 12 innocent people at a Washington DC Naval Base. In truth, surveillance footage showed that the shooter began his attack with a shotgun, but was found with a 9mm pistol. Police confirmed that there was no AR-15 assault rifle used.
It seems that CNN is “jumping the gun” or maybe just a little “trigger happy”, pun intended. It is no secret that CNN is the lowest rated cable news channel when MSNBC is not occupying the bottom slot and it is not hard to see why. To be honest I do not believe they jumped the gun on this story. Truth be known they are more interested in pushing the “Gun Control” agenda forward no matter what the cost. What is the phrase made famous by Rahm Emanuel?
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste”
Well CNN lived up to the phrase. I’m sure they are making Rahm Emanuel proud. In a desperate attempt to save face CNN’s Ben Brumfield posted.
“Navy Yard shooting: AR-15, back in the news – briefly”
which contained a slew of excuses as to the bad information they reported, followed by a push of the Gun Control agenda.
“Regardless, the massacre pushed the AR-15 back into the gun-control debate. The weapon has been used in several other rampages that shocked the nation”
