Media Matters Attacks An Honest CNN Host

posted on December 22, 2015

Meanwhile, some in the gun-hating media don’t have anything good to say about the one CNN host who really gets it—Alisyn Camerota. 

“After these mass shootings, there’s often a cry for a ban on so-called assault rifles,” Camerota said during a recent program. “And I say ‘so-called’ because gun rights enthusiasts say what makes something an assault rifle? That’s a political term. They’re all semi-automatic. You pull the trigger, a bullet fires out. So, one is black and looks scary and one is brown and you go hunting with it.” 

In a blog report posted on the same day and titled, “CNN’s Camerota Adopts Gun Industry Talking Points,” Media Matters immediately attacked the CNN host. “On the December 18 edition of CNN’s New Day, host Alisyn Camerota used the term ‘so-called assault rifles,’ adopting the framing of gun activists,” Media Matters quipped.
