NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch ripped into the liberal media during an appearance at CPAC Thursday, blasting the networks for repeatedly exploiting mass shootings to push an anti-gun narrative for ratings.
"Now I’m going to say something that some people are going to say is controversial…Many in legacy media love mass shootings. You guys love it," Dana Loesch said, aiming her words directly to the media standing at the back of the room.
"Now I'm not saying that you love the tragedy. But I am saying that you love the ratings. Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you and many in the legacy media in the back (of the room)."
"And notice I said 'crying white mothers' because there are thousands of grieving black mothers in Chicago every weekend, and you don't see town halls for them, do you?" Loesch asked. "Where's the CNN town hall for Chicago? Where's the CNN town hall for sanctuary cities?"
“Where was the town hall for Jamiel Shaw Sr, whose son was murdered by someone who’d illegally entered the country and had been deported repeatedly?” she demanded.
