Media Bias

An MSNBC reporter found himself in hot water for his accidental defense of the Second Amendment

Published

on

MSNBC is unapologetic for their left-wing views.

Their anchors and reporters regularly parrot far-left talking points and attack conservatives.

But one MSNBC reporter accidentally defended the Second Amendment and could end up in big trouble for it.

In the left-wing media, there is no sin worse than defending the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.

And on MSNBC, with rabid leftist hosts like Rachel Maddow, it is something you will never see.

But in a rare moment of candor, MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders appeared to unwittingly make the case for the Second Amendment while reporting on the violent crisis in Venezuela.

While citizens of Venezuela are standing up to dictator Nicolas Maduro, the military backing Maduro is fighting back, often with extreme violence against the citizenry.

And Sanders reports on this, stating, “In Venezuela, gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody.” Adding, “if the military have the guns, they have the power.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders unwittingly made the American case for the Second Amendment during a report Tuesday on the political upheaval in Venezuela.

Anchor Andrea Mitchell introduced Sanders for his report by commenting on the surprising ability of Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro to stay in power, despite the pressure on him to step down.

“Not only hanging on but he appears to still control the military,” Sanders said. “You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”

Maduro’s socialist regime has presided over economic devastation in Venezuela, where citizens are beset by rising prices and food and medical shortages. The country banned private gun ownership in 2012 under Maduro’s authoritarian predecessor, Hugo Chavez.

This is the exact argument the most fervent defenders of the Second Amendment make.

Because ultimately, the right to keep and bear arms has less to do with personal defense, or hunting, than it does with providing a check on a hostile government.

And as we’re seeing in Venezuela, when citizens are unable to own guns they stand little chance in fighting back against a violent dictator like Maduro oppressing the people under absolute despotism.

Sanders clearly didn’t realize exactly what the argument he was making entails, as it was just a very short portion of his report.

Do you think the right to keep and bear arms deters would-be tyrants?

    Can’t argue with the Reporter on this one. Also THE USA needs some M-60s on the Southern Border right now. That would sure slow the stream of Invaders down. Every 6th round needs to be a tracer.

      So, a liberal finally admits gun ownership is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY to freedom. I suspect he will be fired for telling the truth.

    All I can say is, if we the people did not have that right, we would be stuck with former president Obama instead of our great president Donald Trump.

    I’m not willing to relinquish my right of unrestricted access to firearms for some demented social experiment.
    What if THEY are wrong?
    Leave our Constitution alone and go play with some other country’s destiny.

    The truth has a way of coming out even if by the mouth of a leftist liberal.

    The private ownership of firearms absolutely matters and it matters greatly! The left Wing Marxist Control Freak Democrap Party would like to institute a centrally controlled Communist police state government in America. However, with 350 million guns in the hands of American citizens, they know better than to even attempt such a coup!

    I agree with everyone here, private ownership o firearms absolutely matters and is core right guaranteed by the 2nd amendment and will not be relinquished.

Megyn Kelly just got hit with this big surprise about a return to Fox News

Megyn Kelly made her big return to Fox News.

Kelly sat for a lengthy interview with Tucker Carlson.

And Megyn Kelly got hit with a big surprise about a return to Fox News.

Megyn Kelly’s comeback on Fox News was a smashing success.

Tucker Carlson’s interview with Kelly drew a whopping four million viewers making Carlson the highest rated show on cable news.

Mediaite reports:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s exclusive interview with Megyn Kelly ended up being a massive ratings draw for the network, grabbing a stunning 4.06 million total viewers.

Carlson — who featured Kelly across multiple segments in her first appearance on cable news since she left NBC — also netted 689,000 viewers in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demographic, beating out his closest competitor – Sean Hannity – in both categories for Wednesday night.

Kelly’s multi-segment interview made news on several fronts.

The former Fox News anchor said there should be an independent investigation into allegations the network covered up female staffers’ complaints that former “Today Show” host, Matt Lauer, sexually assaulted them.

Kelly also discussed how she sees the media turning into open political activists, instead of journalists during the Trump era, putting to lie claims by the Fake News Media that journalists don’t take sides.

If this interview was an audition for a comeback at Fox News, Kelly likely passed with flying colors.

The controversial Kelly proved she was a ratings draw and the Fox News Channel viewers were still interested in what she had to say.

While there are no current openings at Fox in primetime, the channel has shown in the past they will make changes to strengthen their lineup.

We will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.

CNN’s president will cry himself to sleep after Tucker Carlson destroyed his life with one fact

Published

Tucker Carlson is one of the only honest voices on television today.

That’s why he terrifies fake news networks like CNN so much.

And CNN’s president will cry himself to sleep after Tucker Carlson destroyed his life with one fact.

CNN is freaking out after undercover videos from a company insider were released by Project Veritas.

The recordings prove that CNN’s President Jeff Zucker hates President Trump and exerts his influence on the network to harm him.

Carlson played one of the recordings on his show which features a high-level CNN employee stating that Zucker often single-handedly calls the shots at the network, shutting down decisions from his underlings if he disagrees.

The Fox News host explains that this proves CNN isn’t actually a journalism outfit, but instead “state media.”

From Tucker Carlson Tonight:

Even his own employees can’t take that seriously. Listen to one of them:

Nick Neville, CNN media coordinator: Like, there’s a lot of people who were out of here trying tolike just do what they think like is the best of journalistic integrity. And then you get on the 9:00 a.m. call and big boss, Jeff Zucker, [bleep] tells you what to do. And it’s like you have to like … to a certain extent, you have to follow his verdict.

Oh, so we’re laughing because how can you not laugh? It’s just – – it’s out there. It’s like there’s nothing hidden at this point. But it’s also poignant.

Here, you have a kid who works there, who thinks it is journalism, and he looks around and he sees people — because there are good people at CNN. We know it. Anyone who has worked there knows there are good people who work there.

And there are a bunch of them who are trying to commit journalism. But the big boss Jeff Zucker won’t allow it. Integrity be damned. Just do what Jeff Zucker says, whether it’s true or not.

Well, that’s not journalism, of course; it’s the definition of state media. Relentless cheerleading; relentless, never-ending shilling for the ruling class.

These Project Veritas videos just prove exactly what Americans already knew.

For months, CNN has been rapidly losing viewers due to their anti-Trump bias.

These videos are definitive proof of that bias and could end up being the death of CNN.

Do you think CNN should shut down for good?

Rush Limbaugh put a smile on Trump’s face by uncovering this major media secret

Published

Much of Rush Limbaugh’s job involves him revealing the stories the rest of the media refuses to cover.

That has made him one of President Donald Trump’s top allies.

And Limbaugh just put a big smile on Trump’s face by uncovering this major media secret.

If there’s one thing the media doesn’t want to talk about, it’s the big wins President Trump continues to bring in.

Limbaugh exposed this by talking about the recent special election for Governor in Louisiana.

Just before that election Trump held a rally in the state.

As a result, they had record turnout for the special election, where Republicans outperformed all expectations.

Limbaugh explains that Democrats are horrified by this fact considering that this was a special election where turnout is usually very light.

But because of Trump, voters hit the polls in droves.

Transcript from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show:

RUSH: Last week, Trump went into Louisiana and did a rally. Before that, he did a rally in Minneapolis. Now, something happened in Louisiana after the Trump rally that I will wager you haven’t heard anything about. Does anybody remember why Trump even went to Louisiana? (interruption) You do? Good for you! Good. Mr. Snerdley is on the case. There was a governor’s race. He went down there to tout an election. There was an election, in fact, the next day. Have you heard any stories about what happened in that election?

They had record turnout in a special election. Quote from the story: “The Hill, which also had a look, but ran an [bland] headline that didn’t match the content of its three-alarm fire for Democrats, noted that this Democrat loss came in a special election, and those normally don’t draw large numbers of voters, but this one did,” and nobody is drawing the connection that Trump was there the day before. Here’s the headline: “Brutal Wipeout for Democrats in Louisiana, and the Press [Is] Trying to Keep it Quiet — The last of the Louisiana state election numbers are in, and it’s not pretty for the Democrats.

Democrats and their pals in the press are trying to claim that Republican voters are burnt out while Democrats are fired up.

So in 2020, they are hoping that will result in a massive loss for Trump.

This election proves that is extremely unlikely.

Do you think Trump will win in 2020?
