On Cleveland’s WHK: The Media Falsely Claiming that Mass Public Shooters are “Right Wing”

May 30, 2022 | Radio

Dr. John Lott talked to Bob Frantz on Cleveland’s WHK about his piece at Townhall on the media’s bias in describing the political views of mass public shooters. Lott’s piece starts this way:

If you believe the Los Angeles Times, the Buffalo shooter who left 10 dead emerged from “a far-right ecosystem.” A Rolling Stone headline echoed the claim: “The Buffalo Shooter Isn’t a ‘Lone Wolf.’ He’s a Mainstream Republican.” The New York Times links the mass murderer to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. Not to be left out, Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) blames Republicans for the attack, claiming: “The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism.”

This latest attack is one in a series of mass public shootings motivated by environmentalism. But you won’t hear that on the news. . . .
