The Factor Talking Points Memo – Dishonest Media?

Guest:Howard Kurtz

"This week the media was all over the Navy Yard massacre in Washington and some in the press used the murders to advance their anti-gun agenda. Not only that, they were wrong when they reported that Aaron Alexis had used an AR-15 rifle. When the media erroneously reports something instead of checking it out, some ideological politicians jump to exploit the fallacy. Senator Dick Durbin claimed the shooter had an ‘assault rifle,’ which never happened, and other left wing politicians also seized on the massacre to hammer home their anti-gun agenda. Here’s how bad it was: The New York Daily News ran a front page headline that read, ‘Same Gun, Different Slay,’ and MSNBC made a big deal about the killer having an AR-15. To be fair, Fox News also misreported the AR-15, but we didn’t celebrate it. The Los Angeles Times reported that the killer engaged in a running gun battle with Navy security guards while carrying the AR-15, while the Washington Post editorial board asked how the killer got the assault rifle into the Navy Yard. Everybody makes mistakes, but this was a hysterical reaction. There’s no question that the media opposes the majority of Americans over the Second Amendment, and the reason is that most journalists live in secure places. Once again, when Americans lose their lives to violent crime, that situation should never, ever be exploited for political gain."

‘The Factor ‘welcomed media analyst Howard Kurtz, host of the new FNC program Media Buzz. "You’re obviously right that this was a terrible blunder by the mainstream media," Kurtz said, "and we have seen this too many times with mass shootings. Journalists take half-baked information from law enforcement sources and report it as fact. But I certainly don’t think it’s fair to say that all of the mainstream media is comprised of people who are anti-Second Amendment fanatics." The Factor was taken aback by Kurtz’s assertion: "Are you kidding me? Every major network and all the newspapers jumped on the AR-15, they all linked it to Colorado and Connecticut. It was like one guy was there writing the script for all of them. They exploited the mass killings this week for a political agenda!"

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

    Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work? I’m brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
