NRA Threatens The New York Times

Dana Loesch, the National Rifle Association (NRA) spokesperson, told The New York Times (NYT) that the largest gun lobby in America is “coming for” them. Many interpreted the video as a threat to NYT’s reporters which Loesch said was the “violent fantasies” of others. Loesch reiterated the rhetoric of President Trump who has multiple times called CNN and other liberal leaning news outlets “fake news.”

Trump needs to understand that a healthy democracy thrives when there is honest reporting from the media. It hurts the integrity of the presidency and American democracy when the president regurgitates false claims made by Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
