You’ve seen The Daily Caller’s reporters compete against Marines, failing time and time again. In this week’s episode of “Reporter Vs.” they went up against the professional female shooters of The DC Project to see if their luck could change. As you can probably guess, that was not the case.
Ford Springer and Richie McGinnis of The Daily Caller and Leah Jessen of The Daily Caller News Foundation joined The DC Project at a private farm in Virginia where they learned about the groups mission and attempted to hold their own against them on the gun range. Of course, the Capital-dwelling reporters didn’t even stand a chance and were promptly humbled by the female group of pro shooters.
“The DCP is 50 women, one from every state, coming to D.C. to meet their legislators as real gun owners and 2nd Amendment supporters,” The DC Project’s Diana Muller told TheDC. “Not only do we want our legislators to be educated about firearms and the firearms community, but also the media so they can be more accurate in their reporting on the topic. That’s why we are happy to have a Range day for media.”
“Reporter Vs.” is a web series in which TheDC puts its reporters in the shoes of professionals who face adversity that is unimaginable to a pencil pushing member of the fourth estate. At most news outlets, reporters might be afraid to try, and fail, at a new task. But not at TheDC. We have no problem filming our reporters’ fails and then broadcasting it to the rest of the world. If there is such a thing as blue collar journalism, it would probably look something like The Daily Caller’s “Reporter Vs.” series.
