After 1st Taking the Bait CNN then Busts Bloomberg Group ‘Every Liar For Gun Safety’

BELLEVUE, WA – -(Ammoland.com)- The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today congratulated CNN for helping to expose what now appears to be a deliberate deception by Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown for Gun Safety” that claims there have been 74 school shootings since the December 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy.

That figure is also being questioned by other news outlets after one curious journalist looked at the list of shootings released by the Everytown group, along with a map, and discovered that many didn’t happen on school campuses, and others were gang-related events after school hours, or that happened in parking lots.

“Bloomberg should change the name of his $50 million ‘grassroots’ political machine to ‘Every Liar for Gun Safety’,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “This press scrutiny of claims by the gun prohibition lobby is long overdue, because this is hardly the first time that anti-gunners have tried to bamboozle the public with deceptive data.”

CNN used the 74 shootings claim from the “Everytown” group before it “took a closer look at the list, delving into the circumstances of each incident Everytown included.” Gottlieb was delighted that the news agency dug into the figures, but wishes CNN had done that sooner, rather than later.

“CNN used the figure without checking, even though in its follow-up report, the network acknowledged knowing that it came from Bloomberg’s ‘Everytown” group, and that the billionaire former mayor is ‘a passionate and public advocate of gun control’,” Gottlieb stated. “I’ll bet CNN would never use data from gun rights organizations without first checking it for accuracy.

“Sadly,” he concluded, “this episode not only reveals how gun prohibitionists try to fool people with questionable information, it also shows that the liberal, anti-gun-rights media all-too-willingly accepts such information at face value. What does that say about press partisanship, if not press gullibility? Let’s hope that from now on, CNN and other news agencies challenge information from anti-gun organizations before treating it like scripture.”

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at www.ccrkba.org or by email to InformationRequest@ccrkba.org.

      What’s to expect from CNN…Who never fact checks anything prior to printing…By then the damage has already been done…They know this but they don’t care whether they got their news stories right or not…CNN is the political propaganda mounth piece of the left wing establishment in Washington DC…One thing for sure…Never trust anything with political overtures as voiced by CNN…Their game plan is deception, half truths, cover up, and outright lies, as presented and hereby witnessed by American viewers…Beware of the news on CNN…It is always tilted to fit the agenda of the liberal progressive left!

    2. Gee, more lies from liberals? Accepted by the independent, fact checking, truth seeking liberal media? I can’t believe it.

      BUSTED…better late than never. For CNN to do this…research and finally expose the BS lie says they just might be starting to get the idea about Bloomberg and his pack of rabid pigs…Wish they had done the research first, but at least they did do it. Time will tell…if they keep it up.

      Is that smoke I smell from the burning pants?

    5. CNN, after Ted Turner married (later divorced) famed Viet Nam War traitor Jane Fonda then quickly evolved into the ultra left Communist News Network (CNN), and has not changed.
