NewsBusters Podcast: Fact-Checking the Left’s Gaslighting, Shameful Lies on Guns

May 27th, 2022 5:26 PM

NewsBusters deputy managing editor Nick Fondacaro and I assumed the helm for Friday’s show and, following a heavy week for the country following Tuesday’s deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, we spent the episode doing a deep dive on the various liberal media narratives that immediately came to the surface.

Whether it concerned a liberal activist masquerading as a journalist calling for a ban of all “assault weapons,” esoteric calls from a congressional correspondent more background checks, or the implication that conservatives are accepting of dead kids, we had a lot to sift through.

All told, we named and dismantled the tiresome and vicious lies about conservatives and the Second Amendment that emanated from out-of-touch liberals from outlets such as ABC, CBS, NBC, and even the upper-crusty online blog Quartz.

The left’s falsehoods have poisoned the well of our body politic when it comes to guns and it’s past time that more people get the facts.
