Get out the popcorn: the nation’s largest and most effective civil rights organization has declared war on the New York Times. The Times is running an ad campaign portraying itself as a purveyor of truth, a claim that is met with hollow laughter by those who are familiar with the paper’s sordid history. Into the breach steps National Rifle Association commentator Dana Loesch, who–unlike anyone who writes about guns for the Times–knows a great deal about firearms. Her riff is epic:
All that she says is true, although I would have liked to hear her thoughts on Walter Duranty, Jayson Blair and Paul Krugman. Maybe she is saving those liars for a forthcoming video. Here’s a thought: Dana, if you want ammo on Krugman, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned. It sounds as though there is much more to come. In this battle, the NRA starts with a big advantage: it is a great deal more popular and more trusted than the NY Times.
