Piers Morgan, Mainstream Hacks Slammed Over “Wrongnado” Of Navy Yard Shooting Coverage
Twitter community, Jon Stewart lash out at crude media tactics to push agendas and clamor for ratings
Sept 18, 2013
So called news anchors, including Piers Morgan on CNN and Alex Wagner on MSNBC, have been exploiting the latest gun related crime as a way of renewing their open attacks on the Second Amendment.
Completely ignoring the fact that the shooting took place in a gun free zone in Washington DC, where strict gun laws already exist, both Morgan and Wagner heavily promoted the rumor that Alexis had used an AR-15 rifle, the same gun that was used by the shooters at Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut, and the Aurora Theater in Colorado.
Hours after the rumours were dispelled and CNN had reported that no AR-15 had been recovered at the scene, Wagner continued to use a graphic of the Navy Yard shooter wielding the large AR-15 in reports.
