Accuracy in Media

The National Rifle Association (NRA) released a new video Monday that mocked a New York Times ad that aired during the Oscars on Sunday evening.

In the Times ad, called “The Truth,” the newspaper took shots at President Donald Trump and sought to portray the Times as the real arbiter of truth in a time of fake news, and ends by saying, “The truth is hard/the truth is hard to know/the truth is more important than ever.”

Using the same style as the the Times ad, the NRA video titled, “Truth Doesn’t Matter to The New York Times,” questions why the Times is suddenly interested in the truth after ignoring it for years:

“The New York Times placed an ad during the Oscars to tell us that truth is more important now. But why now? Wasn’t it important when people were marching? When jobs were declining? When threats were growing? When drugs were flowing? When diplomacy was straining? When policies were failing? When towns were collapsing? When red lines were vanishing? When Obama was lying? When journalists were dying? When Christians were dying? When heroes were dying? When citizens were dying? The truth is that the truth didn’t matter to the New York Times then as much as now—because as long as liberals were ‘progressing’ the truth was depressing.”

“America has stopped looking to the New York Times for the truth, now more than ever. The times are burning… and the media elites have been caught holding the match. Now they want your trust?”

The Times and other liberal news organizations want the public to believe that President Trump is dividing the country, when the truth is that it’s the media’s one-sided reporting that has been dividing the country for years.

    How ironic. The New York Times obfuscates the Big Lie theory as Truth. Wasn’t the Soviet’s newspaper called Pravda, the Russian word for “truth”? Another irony indeed. And to think how the Times crowd wants us to worry about Russia having stolen the election for Trump. They are a bunch of atheist Franfurt School/Ford Foundation activists.

  • Janis

    Thank you thank you thank you! For the TRUTH!!!

    Most members in the NRA I find extremely hypocritical…I get that we have to hunt, but at least feel as bad for a deer as you do an embryo…majority in the club seem anti-abortion…

  • srl2112

    Guns are fine in homes…or with law enforcement…or hunting even…but we have a right to be in gun free environments…anyone who has a gun who is not law enforcement should be captured and removed…someone with a gun is a threat…mama bears must protect their cubs…no one knows if the person had a bad day…

  • JohnBored

    Last I looked an embryo was a budding human. Deer are a food source. Do not equate humans with animals

  • JohnBored

    See 2nd Amendment. Gum free zones are target rich environments for bad huys

  • srl2112

    Embryos don’t cry…I have seen a deer squeal in grief after losing her mother…not saying don’t hunt…just saying… equate animals with humans and not humans with embryos…thanks for the reply!

  • srl2112

    Sounds like unsafe areas to begin with…I am talking about people at sporting events, bars, shopping centers, driving in cars etc. …one person who shouldn’t have a gun seems safer than thousands of everyday people having guns….the more guns the more risk…

  • Tannim

    Humans are animals.

    Get a clue.

  • Tannim

    You do not have the right to be in a gun-free zone, unless you’re stupid enough to do that to your own property.

    You do not have the right to infringe on both my Second Amendment rights or my personal property rights, period.

  • Tannim

    Life is risk. Learn to minimize and deal with it without interfering in the peaceful lives of others. That’s the responsibility that comes with freedom and Liberty.

  • Michael L

    Humans are not animals. We are given dominion over the
    animals by the God who Created all things.

  • Michael L

    The 2nd Amendment was written as a RIGHT to protect us from government.

  • srl2112

    I’ll think about it …seems like a vicious circle…I can own a gun to protect myself…since I fear other people with guns, don’t trust them and feel threatened, I can use a gun (or whatever) to protect my family …does the 2nd protect someone who is protected by the 2nd ?.. …at the end of the day we have a choice to be in a state where everyone can carry a gun …or where nobody can unless they are the law…I feel the odds of running into danger is small…probably because nobody I see has guns…and probably do live in a bubble…I don’t mean to judge…we probably just see things differently..cheers…

  • srl2112

    How can it help us now? The is on the verge of becoming autocratic…seems easier to ask France for help…we saved them in 1944…but seriously…as long as Trump can bully true racists, I will support him…Trump had been stigmatizing the diversity of our country…creating a new generation of children who think it is o.k. the hate those that are different then them…our children lost this election…now we are seeing spikes of hate all over the world…..Trump is oblivious this…he has caused detrimental damage, as hate will turn us into a third world country…he means well. Hopefully he will learn to support our diversity, and ensure no one is stigmatized…to compensate, I wish he would press diversity training in our schools…but that is not him…counting more on Lindsey Graham in 2020…

  • Michael L

    You said you don’t know how it could help but then state that it was guns
    that liberated France? The spikes of hatred clearly started under Obama.

  • srl2112

    I am glad you brought up the fact that hate spiked during Obama as I have heard that before…to me that hate was different as it was on a political level…as Obama tried to turn the economy around…plummeting homes values and thousands more jobs lost every month…he appeared like a socialist…bringing back bank regulations…bailing out the banking and auto industry. McConnell was brutal and stopping him at all cost…for McConnell it was party over people…didn’t even read the bills..propaganda media took over and a eruption of hate against our president erupted…..Trump fueled this with his bombastic birther non-sense…for half of the country, jobs came back and home values reversed to healthy (or too healthy levels)…the other 1/2 didn’t see the jobs come back and just saw the same dilapidated factories. Hopefully Trump can help manufacturing towns…

    The hate I am talking about is totally different…it is about the racial under-tones, rhetoric, body shamming, stigmatization that has caused dramatic increases in hate crimes and bully, as our children now think that it is o.k. to hate and shame anyone who is different than them…that is how they see our new President…that is a tragedy…hate is even increasing around the world…ask any teacher or google ‘spikes in hate crimes or bullying to validate…Thanks Michael

    I suggest you consult a biology textbook and learn some taxonomy.

  • Tannim

    Yes, you do live in a bubble. It sure isn’t reality.

  • srl2112

    …at least it’s a pretty large bubble…enjoy the weekend Tannin!

    I suggest you consult the Scriptures and get a clue before you find out the Truth the hard way, when it’s too late.

  • efred1

    Of course they can’t scream in embryonic fluid; but they DO thrash about as they’re being dismembered in the womb.

    The only people who remain gun-free in gun-free zones are law-abiding people; criminals, by definition, do NOT observe the laws, hence they break the law, are law breakers, in other words, CRIMINALS. They are also cowards, looking for areas where there is little to no risk of armed resistance, hence why the mass-shootings are always at gun-free zones like schools, military bases, theaters, government buildings – are you seeing a common thread, here? When was the last time there was a mass-shooting at a gun store, a shooting range, or the NRA National Convention?

    Huh? Answer me that, I dare you.

  • Mr. W. H. Braden

    Thank God for the NRA. Thank God for America and American Patriots. The New York Times is not a paper reporting current events, its a platform for mocking Americans and promoting the Left. New York Times is about political essay and liberal diatribe against conservatism.

  • srl2112

    I would not expect there to be mass shootings at a gun store, a shooting range or at NRA conventions…the folks there are essentially hobbyists…like coin collectors or go kart racers. Where I would expect shootings from, is an average Joe or Julie who is distraught over a break up, road rage, a job loss, who drank too much, felt neglect from society, or took a glance from someone in the wrong way,

  • srl2112

    Cute…just learned a new emoji from you..Thank you…made my day…

  • srl2112

    Sounds bad when you put it that way…just feel animals feel a profound effect on loss..like the dogs who wait for eternity for their owner who will never come back..

  • Oddjob

    I saw a fawn cry over its mother once. But once i finished watching “Bambi”i got over it!!!

  • mioahu

    the fact that you can equate an animal with a human being just shows what i have been telling you
    all along, you are confused, and you are a moral idiot , with good intentions nonetheless.

  • mioahu

    i would like to see your logic at work if you and a deer were about to die , and somebody had a chance to save one of you… i would like to see you arguing then that it’s ok either way, you and the deer are pretty much the same 🙂 ……DARWIN AWARD ! 🙂

  • Randall Anderson

    I believe that most people who argue for the 2nd Amendment
    make a big mistake. The mistake, and it’s a dangerous one, is to believe that
    the 2nd Amendment grants us the right to have guns, ie. that the right comes
    from government. The reality is that everyone, everywhere has the right to own
    whatever they want as long as they aren’t hurting anyone else. In most
    places governments have prevented their citizens from exercise their preexisting
    right. Our 2nd Amendment says that our government
    will not act to take our preexisting right away.

  • Randall Anderson

    You want to talk bubbles and reality? Let’s do it. Some this
    I have already written above, but it never hurts to reiterate.

    1) At the instant of birth we are all born with the same “rights”.

    2) Based on the circumstances of our births, (where, when,
    parentage, etc.) most of us are prevented (by parents, community members,
    employees of The State, etc.) from
    exercising some of those rights.

    3) Force or the threat of force is used to enforce these
    prohibitions.

    4) In the United States the Constitution and the bill of
    rights is a kind of contract between each of us as individuals and The State laying
    out the nature and the conditions of our relationship with The State.

    5) The 2nd amendment is one of those conditions.
    It states that The State will not revoke our right to own and possess physical
    items that belong to the set of inanimate objects called “firearms”.

    6) Employees of The State, collectively known as “government”
    use force and the threat of force including deadly force to prevent each of us
    from exercising some of our rights.

    7) The prohibitions that are enforced may or may not be part
    of the items in the original contract. The 2nd amendment is one of
    those contractual items.

    8) Owners of private property have the right to place any
    restrictions or conditions they want on the use of their property, including making
    it a “Gun free zone”. It’s not clear to me who’s responsibility it is to
    enforce the property owner’s right; it’s probably the property owner but there’s
    room for argument on this point.

    9) Enforcement of a prohibition on firearm possession
    outside of the previously mentioned private property is a violation of the 2nd
    amendment contract.

    Reality:
    10) Armed employees of The State will enforce any arbitrary
    restriction they want whether it violates the contract or not.

    Prudence:
    11) Just as prudence says it’s not a good idea grab onto 220
    volt live wires even if you have the right to do so, prudence suggests it’s not
    a good idea to exercise your right to possess a firearm when employees of The
    State are ready and willing to kill you for exercising your right.

    Does that get out of the bubble and deal with reality?

  • Dave

    Your observation is correct, however the fact that the 2nd Amendment affirms (rather than grants) the right to “keep” (i.e. own) and “bear”(i.e. carry anywhere) firearms is usually ignored, misquoted or confused by anti-gun people. The language is simple and straight forward. Grade school kids can read and understand it, so obviously the “confusion” is deliberate. It avoids admission that the 2nd Amendment refutes their agenda.
