CNN: NRA Making Matters Worse By Keeping Americans Ignorant On Ebola

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  On October 15 2014 CNN ran a segment on Newsroom in which they claimed Americans are ignorant on Ebola because of the National Rifle Association.

CNN joined a long line of mainstream voices–MSBNC and the Los Angeles Times among them–who have blamed the NRA for the Ebola crisis.

In fact, a guest on the October 15 CNN Newsroom segment was Michael Hiltzik, the LA Times columnist who named the NRA as the “fourth branch of government” and claimed that their opposition to surgeon general nominee Dr. Vivek Murthy brought us to this point in the Ebola crisis.

Speaking on CNN, Hiltzik said:

In February [2013] the NRA dug up a number of statements [Murthy] had made…expressing the viewpoint that gun control was a public health issue. [The NRA] found that unacceptable, they wrote letters to Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senator Mitch McConnell (D-KY), and they said Dr. Murthy is not acceptable to them, and that basically quashed his nomination.

Because of this, Hiltzik and CNN claim there is no “point man” to educate Americans on Ebola or stop the spread of the disease.

The Hill's A.B. Stoddard was also on the segment and brought a refreshing perspective when she showed that the U.S. does in fact have an expert whose job is to handle Eboloa response/preparedness, yet having the expert is not working out so well for us.

Stoddard said: “Her name is Dr. Nicole Lurie, she is the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response for Public Health Emergencies, and she is nowhere to be found.”

Who was it that said,” Only fools would keep fighting in a burning house?” The partisanship and lack of common ground is not helping. I understand why the Right does not want to stop, but I think they would if the Left let up and be willing to compromise, and by that I do not mean that compromise means that we surrender and let them win, but we really need to address real issues collectively.

Acting Surgeon General RADM Boris D. Lushniak, M.D., M.P.H has about 30 years experience in epidemics. You’re welcome, you whining, preening hairdos.

The billionaires that own MSNBC and CNN are part of the group that put Obama in office. They want America to become a one party system, where they can control the elections easier. They want a One World Government, so naturally they would want the population of the world cut down, so they can control the world easier. That is a pretty good reason for an Ebola outbreak and the slow response by the Obama Administration. America is the biggest obstacle in the way of obtaining their goals. The National Rifle Association are the biggest backers of our Constitution and… Read more »

First off, CNN & MSNBC are anti-Second amendment liberal biased networks that fewer and fewer people even watch anymore! Second, ever know 0bama to nominate anyone that’s qualified for any position? This joker Murthy is a 0Bama donor & partisan hack with less than a decade of actual medical experience, hence, he gets the nomination. Any candidate for the office of Surgeon General should at the very least be in their late 50’s and have at least 30 years experience in the medical field. And finally, the fact of the matter is, the US has a interim SG named Boris… Read more »
