<p>ABC News gave up any illusion that they were going to objectively cover the Parkland school shooting on Sunday when fill-in host Martha Raddatz relinquished control of <em>This Week</em> to radical anti-gun activists. Between students claiming the GOP had blood on their hands and claims the NRA was sponsoring the shootings, and letting a Democratic Congressman control the debate and grill a Republican, it was clear ABC stood against gun rights.</p>
<p>The liberal media flocked to a gun control rally that was held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida Saturday in the wake of the Parkland school shooting. They were eager to spread the group’s message and during their Sunday morning shows, ABC’s <em>Good Morning America</em> and NBC’s <em>Sunday Today</em> hyped the new wave of “student activism” and claimed they had the “momentum here.”</p>
<p>John Sexton at Hot Air pinpointed an obnoxious <em>Washington Post</em> article on President Trump visiting the victims of the Parkland school shooting. <em>Post</em> reporter Josh Dawsey openly editorialized that Trump doesn't care about victims as much as he wants to praise cops and first responders, and suggested that maybe Trump didn't meet with victims (despite Trump posting hospital pictures on Twitter).</p>
<p>On Thursday, Minneapolis station WCCO reported on guns and crime in Minnesota. Anchor Frank Vascarello's introduction: "More people are carrying guns than ever before, but the crime rate remains low." Imagine that.</p>
<p>Kelly Lawler at <em>USA Today</em> previewed a new Netflix standup comedy special by Chris Rock called <em>Tamborine, [sic]</em> in which he openly discusses his "very public 2014 divorce from his wife of 18 years." But first, the special offered a "joke" about how the police need to "occasionally shoot a white kid" after they looked at their "dead [N-word] calendar." As if the police have a scheduled plan to murder blacks? </p>
<p>For anyone wondering how former MSNBC host Ed Schultz has been occupying his time since the far-left host was booted from MSNBC a couple of years ago, the answer to that question would seem to be that he's going even further off the rails if his current show from this past week is an indication. Schultz -- who currently hosts the Russia Today network's <em>The News with Ed Schultz</em> -- actually gave an unchallenged forum to an anti-Israel activist -- Miko Peled -- who not only called the Israeli government a "racist" regime that is engaging "genocide" against Arabs, but the guest even called for the U.S. to take military action against the Jewish state by sending the Sixth Fleet to the Gaza Strip and forcing Israel to end its blockade.</p>
<p>In the wake of the Friday indictments of Russians by special counsel Robert Mueller, several media outlets have found a highly disingenuous way to continue attacking President Donald Trump as claiming collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign is a "hoax" or "fake news." Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosensteini explicitly stated they presented no evidence of collusion in the indictment, but somehow, he made Trump's "hoax claim harder to sell." </p>
<p>The legion of the perpetually aggrieved "white supremacy"-obsessed jumped on a Monday remark by Trump administration Attorney General Jeff Sessions to concoct a bogus "racial dogwhistle" when he used the term "Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement" in a speech to the National Sheriffs' Association. Five days in, many of them still haven't acknowledged that former President Barack Obama and others in his administration have used the term without generating controversy.</p>
<p>Early Thursday afternoon, the Associated Press abandoned skepticism when the leader of a white nationalist group contacted it, claiming, in AP's words, that "Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz was a member of his group and participated in paramilitary drills in Tallahassee." Subsequent AP reports have downplayed or ignored law enforcement's assertions that there are "no known ties" between Cruz and the Republic of Florida, as well as ROF leader Jordan Jereb's bizarre reported walkback. By Friday afternoon, reporters at several medai outlets, including Shawn Musgrave at Politico declared that Jereb and others had "fooled the media." thanks to a "coordinated efforts by internet trolls."</p>
<p>Journalists are racing to target President Trump and blame the Florida shooting on guns and the NRA. So, it might be a good time to look back. President Ronald Reagan wrote an essay in the spring of 1983. He was talking about exactly what was not on display in Parkland, Florida in the heart and soul of shooter Nikolas Cruz- the value of, and the respect for, human life. And in the aftermath of the school shooting that left seventeen dead? The nation’s media was also determined - one might say determined to the point of obsession to place blame.</p>
