Tampa Bay Times Publishes Bloomberg Propaganda As News

posted on April 19, 2016

On Sunday, the Tampa Bay Times reprinted a twisted account of NRA’s efforts to rescue a Florida shooting range under attack by bureaucrats from the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Their source was Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun news website, The Trace. 

The Times published the story of how NRA helped end the long-term harassment by the water district, which goes by the acronym Swiftmud, without any fact-checking. In it, The Trace demonized the intervention of Marion Hammer, the former NRA president and effective gun-rights advocate, on behalf of the Skyway Trap & Skeet Club. 

Last year, Americas1stFreedom.org’s series, No Trace of Truth, documented its anti-gun bias. When the Times reprints the website’s propaganda unchecked, it erodes public confidence in all news media, as evidenced by Monday’s AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research/American Press Institute poll that found only 6 percent of Americans “have a lot of confidence in the media.”

From Editor: This Is Not A Culture War

If gun-control advocates were honest, they would look at what really makes Americans safer, but they aren't interested in this. In reality, they're far more interested in something else.
