Dana Loesch: The Media ‘Has Got To Stop Creating’ Mass Shooters

Font Size:

National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch criticized the establishment media for its extensive coverage of mass shooters like the 17-year-old who murdered 10 students at a Santa Fe, Texas school on Friday.

“[The media] has got to stop creating more of these monsters by over-saturation,” Loesch said in a video published Friday on NRATV. (RELATED: USA Today: Guns Used In Texas Shooting Were ‘Less Lethal’ Than Other Shootings)

“I’m not saying don’t responsibly report on things as they happen,” said Loesch. “I understand it. But constantly showing the image of the murderer, constantly saying their name, is completely unnecessary.”

As evidence, Loesch referenced the school shooting suspects who’ve looked to the Columbine High School perpetrators as twisted inspiration. (RELATED: Jimmy Kimmel Uses Texas Shooting To Launch Yet Another Gun Control Diatribe)

“I understand if you want to report it once they’re identified but after that, once these studies are shown, we need to be very cognizant of what this creates,” she concluded.
