NRA attacks Washington Post: You should say journalism dies there


The National Rifle Association (NRA) on Monday targeted The Washington Post in a new video accusing the newspaper of trying to take away gun rights.

In the video, released weeks after a recruitment ad that received widespread criticism, conservative talk show host Grant Stinchfield attacks The Post for “tarnish[ing] gun owners in an effort to take away our Second Amendment freedoms,” calling them a “fake news outlet” and accusing the newspaper of running a “blatantly false” story.

Later in the video, Stinchfield tells The Post not to “worry about how many guns are in our videos — worry about how many facts are in your articles.”

“You people do more to damage our country with a keyboard than any NRA member combined has ever done with a firearm,” he said. “Your paper’s new slogan may read ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness’ — it should say ‘Journalism Dies at The Washington Post.’ ”

Stinchfield’s video follows a video in late June featuring NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch attacking the media, Hollywood and other U.S. institutions.

“The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom is to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth,” Loesch said in the video, which presented a prompt encouraging viewers to join the NRA.

Critics of the NRA said the initial ad exploited the recent shooting at a congressional baseball practice and further divide Americans.
