WTF MSM!? Yes, they want to grab guns

Yes they do …

Oh, Joy! … For her own sake, I hope that MSNBC’s Joy Reid doesn’t do her own fact-checking before her show. Because if she does, it might explain A LOT. In today’s New York Times, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens called for the repeal of the Second Amendment. Reid helpfully tweeted at a conservative who labeled Stevens a liberal:

Earth to Joy: Stevens was one of the most left-wing justices ever to sit on the Supreme Court. The LA Times called him “the leader of the court's liberal wing and its strongest voice for progressive causes.” Don’t worry, though, Reid backed it up with a screenshot from Biography.com. It could have been worse. It could have been Wikipedia.

Do his eyes not work? … Politico’s Ben White responded to a tweet by Marco Rubio by saying, “Weird I didn’t hear anybody talk about a ‘gun ban.’ Interesting way to seek common ground.” Are you serious, Ben? Do your eyes not work? Luckily the eyes of other Twitter users do work. A host of people helpfully replied to Ben’s tweet with signs calling for the eradication of guns. That is exactly what the march to restrict natural rights was about over the weekend.

White responded to me on Twitter saying, ”Didn’t seem that way to me but respect your view of it.” I appreciate the response, but there were scores of signs calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment and pushing the grabbing of guns at that rally.

In that profile, Rolling Stone reported that Mike Pence calls his wife “mother.” For some reason, PolitiFact published a “fact-check” of the claim today.

In a lengthy piece, the site claims that “this unusual feature of Pences’ relationship … … has captured readers’ interest.” Really? What readers? Or did the folks at PolitiFact just want to embarrass the vice president? The verdict? “We were unable to find video or other documentary evidence, so the claim will remain unrated.” That didn’t stop Politico from relating several hearsay anecdotes, though.

CRTV host Michelle Malkin had it exactly right in a tweet: “One thousand two hundred and thirteen words of deranged, sneering propaganda masquerading as a ‘fact check.’”
