USA Today Demonizes AR-15 After Reporting Santa Fe Gunman Used Revolver, Shotgun

USA Today demonized the AR-15 on Friday after reporting that the Santa Fe High School gunman used a revolver and a shotgun in his attack. The paper referenced Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) statement that the Santa Fe High School attacker used “a shotgun and .38 caliber revolver, both of which he got from his father.” The article added, “The guns may have slowed down the gunman’s deadly rampage because they have a slower firing rate than firearms used in other recent mass shootings, such as the AR-15.” USA Today continued, “High-powered rifles such as the AR-15 can be fired more than twice as fast as most handguns. The standard magazine for an AR-15 holds 30 rounds, allowing a shooter to continue firing uninterrupted for longer, making the weapon more lethal than other firearms.” A few clarifications are in order: 1. A semi-automatic handgun can be fired as fast as a semi-automatic rifle. There is no magic quality about an AR-15 that makes it easier or quicker to fire than a semi-automatic pistol. 2. The Santa Fe gunman used a revolver, which is not semi-automatic, to begin with. However, granting that it was a double-action, it, too, can be fired as quickly as an AR-15. 3. A shotgun, which the Santa Fe gunman also used, is far superior to an AR-15 in close quarters. USA Today belatedly alluded to this by adding, “Clearly the use of any gun can be deadly, especially a shotgun at close range.” Later in the article, USA Today reported, “Many of the deadliest mass shootings in recent years involved high-powered rifles, notably AR-15 styled rifles. But far fewer have featured shotguns or a revolver as the primary killing weapon.” On April 3, 2018, Breitbart News listed 25 of our nation’s most prominent mass public attacks, and AR-15s were used eight times. The predominate weapon was a handgun, used 17 times. Shotguns were used in four of the incidents. The Santa Fe attack raises the use of handguns to 18 and shotguns to five, while AR-15s remain as the weapon of choice on eight occasions.

But, those are FACTS.  And, USA Today, and the rest of the dominantly liberal mainstream media don’t care about facts if they interfere in the communication of their liberal agenda/narrative.  Nothing about the shooting in Santa Fe, TX had ANYTHING to do with an AR-15.  But, USA decided to try and figure a way to inject that into the story/narrative somehow to further their anti-gun propaganda.  Typical fake news..

Sarah Sanders Slams Media and Liberals Enraged that Trump Called MS-13 Gang ‘Animals’

“If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they’re more than welcome to,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters during Thursday’s briefing after media attempts to frame President Trump’s comments from the previous day as insulting to “some immigrants.” “I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough,” she said. One reporter had asked Sanders about the president’s use of the word “animals” to describe members of the vicious MS-13 transnational gang but, instead, framed the question by saying Trump used the term to describe “some immigrants.” Sanders sharply corrected him by saying, “The president was very clearly referring to MS-13 gang members who enter the country illegally and whose deportations are hamstrung by our laws.” She described the gang as “one of the most vicious and deadly” and operates using rape, control, and killing. “If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they’re more than welcome to,” said Sanders. “Frankly I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough.” She then described some of the “heinous acts” the gang has executed: “It took an animal to stab a man a hundred times and decapitate him and rip his heart out. It took an animal to beat a woman they were sex trafficking – with a bat 28 times, indenting part of her body. And it took an animal to kidnap, drug, and rape a 14-year old Houston girl. Frankly, I think that the term “animal” doesn’t go far enough. And I think that the president should continue to use his platform and everything he can do under the law to stop these types of horrible, horrible, disgusting people.” Trump used the term “animal” to describe MS-13 gang members during a Wednesday afternoon White House roundtable with stakeholders in the fight against California’s sanctuary state laws. Fresno Sheriff Margaret Mims described to Trump the struggle her region faces in notifying Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of an illegal alien MS-13 gang member. Trump responded by calling those gang members “animals,” a term he has used in the past to describe the murderous criminal organization. A host of media personalities, Hollywood celebrities, and Democrats deceptively framed his comments as referring to “some immigrants,” a narrative continued in the Thursday briefing question. “There’s a spark of divinity in every person on earth and that we all have to recognize that,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said as she slammed Trump for calling MS-13 members “animals.” Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom said Trump is like a “slave owner” or “Nazi” for Trump’s description of the murderous gang members. The Associated Press issued a tweet correction on Thursday admitting it had incorrectly framed Trump’s comment: “AP has deleted a tweet from late Wednesday on Trump’s “animals” comment about immigrants because it wasn’t made clear that he was speaking after a comment about gang members”: This year, ICE arrested 475 gang members in a sting operation, 99 of whom claimed unaccompanied minor status and 65 of whom were shortly thereafter released into the United States by an immigration judge. The MS-13’s beheading of a victim that Sanders referred to on Thursday is likely the case of a ten-person gang ambush in Maryland. A 19-year-old had been arrested in connection with the crime as of late last year. The gang beating of a 15-year-old sex trafficking victim sounds to be the case out of Maryland that allegedly involved 21-year-old illegal alien Yervin Josue Romero-Rivera, according to local WJLA. The drugging, rape, and murder of a 14-year-old girl in Houston appear to be the case of two 18-year-old MS-13 gang members who appeared in court for charges in the crime and were seen smiling and waving to television cameras.

CNN analyst Chris Cillizza deletes tweet showing Trump in crosshairs

Chris Cillizza, a political analyst for CNN, deleted a tweet he sent out Tuesday that included an image appearing to show President Trump in crosshairs. In a separate tweet, Cillizza said the graphic was unintended and the result of a computer program he and his team used. “I’ve deleted a GIF about President Trump,” he wrote. “We use @GifGrabber to make our GIFs and it defaults to the image below as a first frame. To clear up any unintended confusion, I’ve removed the tweet.” A GIF is a type of digital graphic that sometimes show motion in the image. Cillizza sent the initial tweet Tuesday morning using a photo of Trump, who spoke that day at the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service in Washington. “Donald Trump, pointing to heavens to commemorate police officers killed in the line of duty,” Cillizza wrote in the since-deleted post. Mike Cernovich, an online provocateur and Trump supporter, saved an image of Cillizza’s tweet and called it “an assassination threat on our President!” Images of crosshairs have drawn controversy in politics in the past.

It’s hard to explain this Tweet pic away as anything other than a pic of Trump in a rifle crosshair lens.  Chris just got busted, and is doing his level best to tip toe his way out of it.  And CNN wonder’s why it’s ratings are in the toilet.  People are sick of this crap.  Just fathom if a journalist had done this to Obama…  The story would be EVERYWHERE, and there would be people saying it was a “hate crime” and so on…and we ALL know it.  Typical liberal media hypocrisy.  Anyway, to see the pic in question, click on the text above and you be the judge.

CNN’s April Ryan hit for saying Melania Trump is ‘not culturally American’

Critics are slamming CNN contributor April Ryan for suggesting that First Lady Melania Trump is “not culturally American” when discussing the “Be Best” campaign to combat cyberbullying on Monday night. “This is a first lady who is not culturally American, but she is learning the ways and this is not just an American issue. These are not just American issues,” Ryan told “OutFront” host Erin Burnett. “These are international issues. Cyberbullying is an international issue. Social media is international and also the opioid addiction issue, so it’s not just here, but it’s abroad as well.” CNN did not respond to a request for clarification. The first lady was born in Slovenia but has been an American citizen since 2006 and has lived in the country since 1996. NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that “Ryan is showing that she’s anything but a journalist” and is more of a liberal advocate. “Her comments are absurd considering how long the first lady has lived in this country,” Houck said. “Regardless of one’s views of the president, the first lady is an example of ‘Only in America’ could this be possible.” This isn’t the first time Ryan has caused a stir and Houck said her “comments about the president and behavior in the briefing room show Trump Derangement Syndrome in full force.” Conservative commentator Carmine Sabia told Fox News that he remembers “when people were called racist” for saying the same thing about President Barack Obama. “I also remember people like April Ryan saying that we are a nation of immigrants. This is racism and reprehensible and she should be ashamed,” Sabia said. Conservative commentator Glenn Beck agrees and took to Twitter to blast Ryan for the comment. “April Ryan – I know when some said that Obama wasn’t fully ‘culturally American’ reporters cried racism. Now that you, a reporter, are saying the same, can they cry racism? Or do you just hate foreigners? Wow, this is easy, I see why the left likes it,” Beck wrote. White House Director of Strategic Response Steven Cheung wrote, “What does that even mean? On a day when Mrs. Trump unveiled a very important initiative #BeBest, reporters can’t bring themselves to talk about anything but rumors and innuendo.” Ryan twisted Sarah Sanders’ words on Thursday night in order to make the absurd suggestion that the White House press secretary is looking for a physical confrontation with the star reporter.

April Ryan is a nauseating hypocrite.  It’s stunning that she still has White House press creds.

ESPN Lost 500,000 Subscribers in April

ESPN lost half-a-million subscribers in the month of April, adding to a massive hemorrhaging of customers which now hovers around 14 million over the last seven years. While the numbers were catastrophic across the board for the national networks, only NBCSN lost more households than ESPN. According to Awful Announcing, “ESPN (-500,000), FS1 (-328,000), NBCSN (-544,000), TBS (-490,000), and TNT (-495,000) were all hit hard too. And that’s perhaps especially concerning considering that it’s prime playoff time for NBCSN (the NHL’s Stanley Cup playoffs), as well as ESPN and TNT (the NBA playoffs). These are not out-of-season drops, but drops at a time while those networks have some of their best content. So there are certainly some things to worry about there.” Those worries are exacerbated by the fact that ESPN launched their brand new morning show Get Up! in April. A show which takes place in a studio that reportedly cost $35 million to build, and is hosted by three personalities who make nearly $15 million a year. Most networks consider launching an expensive new show while losing 17,000 subscribers a day, to be less than ideal. Yet, while April’s loss of 500,000 subscribers is certainly bad, the network hasn’t lost households in those numbers over the last 15 months. ESPN has lost roughly 1.6 million subscribers from February of 2017, until now. That rate of loss comes out to just over 100,000 subscribers each month. No one wants to lose customers in any numbers, though, that kind of loss is sustainable for an immensely wealthy network operating under the Disney banner. However, if April’s losses of 500,000 become the new normal over the next year or so, that would cause ESPN’s new leadership to downsize the “worldwide leader” in a way that would dwarf the layoffs of 2017.

One A Day: CNN Hosts Porn Star’s Lawyer Michael Avenatti 59 Times in Less Than Two Months

CNN has exhibited a fetish for the Stormy Daniels story, particularly for her Trump-smacking lawyer, Michael Avenatti. In less than two months (from March 7 to April 30), Avenatti has been a guest on CNN a total of 59 times – an average of more than once per day. MRC analysts combed through transcripts of all of CNN’s 2018 coverage looking for references to interviews with Avenatti, and then double-checked using our video archive. Since Avenatti’s first appearance on March 7, he has been interviewed on CNN a whopping 59 times, more than one-third of which (19) were with Anderson Cooper — who, of course, interviewed Stormy Daniels on CBS’s 60 Minutes back in March. By comparison, CNN hosted House Democrat Adam Schiff (CA) – who had been a favorite of the network – ten times during the months of March and April. That would be a generous portion of airtime for any politician, but it was barely one-sixth the exposure granted to a lawyer overwhelmingly known for representing a porn star. Unfortunately for the Congressman, CNN’s interest in Schiff was noticeably higher before Avenatti showed up. In January and February, the Trump-bashing Democrat was interviewed a total of 17 times; in March and April, that fell to just ten times, a decline of roughly 40%. Here’s another statistic that should put CNN’s interest in Avenatti into perspective: From March 7 to April 30, all 51 Republican Senators combined received just 34 interviews on the cable network. Though CNN has eagerly hosted Avenatti at seemingly every opportunity, some at the network have commented on his inordinate on-air presence. On April 6, New Day stand-in host David Gregory elicited a laugh from his fellow panelists when he sarcastically referred to “rare public comments from Michael Avenatti.” And on April 30, CNN legal analyst Paul Callan characterized the lawyer’s most recent lawsuit against the President as “a publicity stunt” during yet another appearance by Avenatti on Cooper’s show. Despite these remarks by Gregory and Callan, it remains to be seen whether CNN will ratchet back the absurd amount of coverage they have given Avenatti.

…which, of course they won’t.  THIS is why the President refers to CNN and other similar networks as “fake news.”  Its total garbage…and we’re happy to help document it here at The Daily Buzz.

More Joy Reid Anti-Gay Writings Discovered — MSNBC Host Claims Site was Hacked

Joy Reid’s old blog, The Reid Report (2000-2014), is littered with even more anti-gay posts than were originally discovered, reports the far-left blog Mediate. The MSNBC host is claiming these latest discoveries were not written by her, but by hackers as a means “to taint my character.” Earlier this year, Reid admitted to authoring a number of posts on her old site that mercilessly ridiculed then-Republican Florida Governor Charlie Crist as a homosexual (even after he married a woman). Reid was clearly using homosexuality as a pejorative, as a weapon of ridicule, so the left-wing MSNBC anchor’s homophobia has already been well- established. Nevertheless, after she apologized for this (and because she is not a conservative), Reid was allowed to resume a media career that traffics in conspiracy theories, race-baiting, and uninformed Trump-bashing. To see some the new finds on Reid’s old site that she claims she did not write, just click here:

Wow..  We all know how much of a brazen hypocrite Joy is.  But, you really need to click on the above and read this..  Thanks to John Nolte for bringing this to our attention..  Unreal…
