This is from Gun News. 

It sounds to me like Nanny Bloomberg wants to become the Joseph Goebbels of the Obama Anti-Gun Media.

 

Bloomberg, the maniacal former mayor of New York City, has announced the creation of a “news” arm of his anti-gun group, Everytown for Gun Safety. As you may remember, Everytown is the latest incarnation of the Mayor’s Against Illegal Guns group that suffered irreparable damage when the criminal pasts of its members came to light.

The announcement coincides with the “journalism” seminar that Bloomberg is co-hosting with the Columbia School of Journalism in Arizona later this month. The seminar is reportedly to help select journalists to be better educated and more ethical when reporting on guns. I’m having a tough time accepting that this seminar will do either of these things.

What I think is happening is that Bloomberg is holding this event as a recruitment seminar as he and the editors of this “news” arm look for writers to fill their website with anti-gun, anti-Bill of Rights articles.

The man running the propaganda wing of Everytown will be none other than James Burnett, ultra-left-wing, anti-gun former editor from New Republic. He, along with several other employees, resigned from New Republic when the new owner decided to go in a different direction.

Another liberal, this one from the New York Times, will also be joining the crew. Jennifer Mascia will be the news and editorial assistant.

The bottom line is that Bloomberg is gearing up for a big plan of disinformation and bogus statistics, all with the intention of confusing a gullible public into thinking that the country will be safer when only the police have guns.

Bloomberg isn’t the only liberal who wants to control how news and information is disseminated. President Obama has recently called for a change in how the media reports stories. Speaking at Georgetown University, Obama said,

“We’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues and how people’s impressions of what it’s like to struggle in this economy looks like, and how budgets connect to that. And that’s a hard process because that requires a much broader conversation than typically we have on the nightly news.”

The truth is that it isn’t any of his business how the media reports the news. This goes for whether it’s CNN or FOX. No one in the government should ever be involved with how the news is written, reported, or shown. That is the purpose of the First Amendment. The politicians govern at our pleasure, and the media reports it how they see it.

The only problem that we really have now in the media is credibility, such as people like Brian Williams lying to the American public about his experiences and then expecting to be believed when he reports the news. George Stephanopoulos is another example of a person with an ulterior motive. He worked for years for Bill and Hillary Clinton and now is working for ABC as a nightly anchor, pretending to be unbiased. Now, his donation of $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation has come to light, showing exactly where his loyalties lie.

I am not a journalist, nor do I claim to be one. I have never claimed to be unbiased. In fact, I’m very biased. What I write are opinion pieces based on current events. That’s the difference between me and liberal writers.

Liberal writers, like those who will be working for Bloomberg, claim to be writing unbiased, neutral pieces that simply lay out the facts. The problem is that they are manipulating the facts in order to deceive the public. They also use the term “unbiased” in an attempt to gain the trust of the public.

I’m not interested in the public’s trust. My challenge to all my readers is simple: Read my articles and then do the research and see if you agree with me or not. If you agree with me, great. If you disagree with me, that’s fine too. I’m not unbiased — I’m a fervent supporter of the Second Amendment, and I don’t hide that.

Bloomberg’s news arm will invariably write articles that are anti-Second Amendment but cloaked in the public safety mantra. They will never just come out and say how they really feel. They will never just say, “Look, guns are evil. Guns kill people. I hate guns, and the Second Amendment needs to be abolished and all the guns collected.”

Hell, I’d at least respect them for being honest. Stupid, but honest. Instead, they will skirt around the issue, attempting to build consensus within the uneducated populace.

I can see it now.

“We all want our children to be safe, don’t we? Then why in the world would you want your child in a school where any untrained, gun zealot can carry without any rules? Isn’t this putting your child’s life at risk? Why do you need a military style rifle? Nobody uses those for hunting. Our founding fathers never intended people to own machine guns. The Second Amendment was written to protect hunters.”

The list goes on and on. All lies.

As we get closer to the presidential election cycle (if we aren’t already in it — who can tell anymore?) the anti-gun rhetoric will increase. Bloomberg’s group will be poised to flood the market with lies, misinformation, made up statistics, and anything else they can think of to get another liberal idiot in the White House.
