Former journalist says the media wants gun owners to pipe down

The Washington Post referred to a National Rifle Association video with Navy Seal Dom Raso, which discusses civil unrest in the United States and explores what fascism really looks like across the world, as “dark,” in its headline. In response, NRA-TV host Grant Stinchfield shot back with a two minute video called “Journalism Dies at the Washington Post.”

The “reformed journalist” told Chris Salcedo on today’s “Chris Salcedo Show” that gun owners are not single issue voters, but journalists get offended when they talk about more than guns, or if they talk about guns too much.  He said second amendment advocates must constantly fight on the “battlefield for truth.”

He also admitted, “I’m almost embarrassed to say that I worked in mainstream television,” disclosing that national networks no longer even ask the other side to have a dialogue. They mix anchormen with commentators so viewers can’t even tell the difference anymore.

He reported there is little diversity of opinion in the news room, so nobody says in the morning pitch meetings, “take a look at this from the other side.” Even the Washington Post reported in 2014 that only seven percent of journalists are Republicans.

Moreover, Stinchfield believes left leaning media personalities actively hate conservatives and have simply focused all of their loathing on President Donald Trump like “a bullseye.”
