New York Times reporter demonstrates the anti-self-defense political bias in the media

19 Oct , 2019  

A New York Times reporter, Ted Alcorn, who used to be the research director for Mike Bloomberg’s Everytown is all excited that there is a big push for more gun control. It is interesting that he secretly subscribes to our email list.

Note political bias:

— Refers to the “gun lobby,” put aside that his old boss spent massively more money on politics

— Personal attack

Are either of these appropriate for a reporter or for someone who is teaching at the Columbia School of Public Health?…

Easily $9 million was spent on the gun control “March for Our Lives” event

22 Apr , 2018  

.For a rally that brought in 200,000 people, this was a pretty expensive event.  Easily $9 million that we know of was spent on the “March for Our Lives” event, but that is not counting in-kind help and much of the spending that didn’t go through the main organization.  An early estimate of $5 million from the main organization (the “March for Our Lives Action Fund”), $2.5 million in grants from Bloomberg’s Everytown (presumably much more from them in other ways), up to $1.5 million from Lyft, free hotel rooms and food, and for many people free air travel.…
