NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch went after the legacy media in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Thursday.
“Many in the legacy media love mass shootings.”
“Now I’m going to say something that some people are going to say is controversial,” she explained. “So I’ll say it really slowly, so all the people on the platform in the back can hear me loud and clear.”
“Many in the legacy media love mass shootings. You guys love it. Now, I’m not saying you love the tragedy, but I am saying that you love the ratings. Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you and many in the legacy media in the back.”
Loesch also went after CNN in her speech.
She said, “You heard that town hall last night,” referring to CNN’s town hall debate on guns Wednesday night.
“They cheered the confiscation of firearms. It was over 5,000 people. I had to have a security detail to get out. There were people rushing the stage and screaming ‘burn her!'” (RELATED: NRA Spox Trashes CNN In Scathing CPAC Speech)
