CNN’s snobby commentator Piers Morgan jumped the gun attempting to smear the NRA and its head Wayne LaPierre. The Brit connected an NRA registration found in the Lanza residence to the Newtown shooter.
One problem: it wasn’t the shooter’s NRA registration. It was his mother’s. That didn’t stop Morgan from lamely trying to Alinskify NRA chief Wayne LaPierre:
Matt Vespa pointed out the NRA’s response at Newsbusters:
The NRA was forced to put out a statement clarifying for those in the media that people NRA certificates don’t indicate membership in the organization: “There is no record of a member relationship between Newtown killer Adam Lanza, nor between Nancy Lanza, A. Lanza or N. Lanza with the National Rifle Association. Reporting to the contrary is reckless, false and defamatory.”
This is the kind of ‘fact-checking’ and blind partisanship that got Piers Morgan fired at the BBC. So why is CNN letting this partisan hack pontificate about gun control? Because he reliably portrays the facts in his opinions? This says as much about CNN as Piers Morgan.
