The Texas Tribune was caught peddling fake news about how this month’s El Paso, TX mass shooter obtained his weapons and ammunition this week, claiming erroneously that he purchased them directly from overseas, and then refusing to own up to their mistakes, a Texas gun seller has revealed.
“Texas Tribune you need to retract this article and make corrections. I recorded my conversation with your reporter and I specifically told her,” wrote Michael Cargill, founder of Central Texas Gun Works, in a Facebook post.
Cargill claims that he told Tribune reporter Jolie McCullough to “check and verify because I doubt very seriously the shooter purchased this gun from overseas,” adding that “what he probably did was purchased online in the US and had it shipped to a gun store near him” because ammo can be purchased “online but not overseas, and yes in Texas you can have the ammunition shipped to your home.”
Cargill added: “Ross Ramsey, I would really appreciate it if this story was corrected. #BadJournalism.”
Ramsey, executive editor and co-founder of the Tribune, challenged Cargill’s contentions and inferred that the story was good journalism and that Cargill had not read the whole story. This promoted Cargill to post screen shots before and after the Tribune made deceptive edits proving that they did publish the fake news and tried to hide it.
“Texas Tribune was busted. Screenshots proved they edited an article without annotating the article was changed. They tried to call Michael Cargill a liar until he produced recordings and screenshots. Then they changed the article three times until it was correct,” Central Texas Gun Works wrote on their official Facebook page.
Eventually, the fake news publication did issue an underwhelming clarification where they took no responsibility for their irresponsible and biased reporting.
The Tribune wrote: “This story has been updated to clarify how ammunition from overseas can be shipped to consumers’ homes.”
Interestingly, they did note that Walmart is one of their corporate sponsors.
“Walmart has been a financial supporter of The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization that is funded in part by donations from members, foundations and corporate sponsors,” they wrote.
Although the Tribune claims that “financial supporters play no role in the Tribune’s journalism,” it would explain why the fake news publication would be eager to demonize independent gun dealers who are competitors to Walmart, the superstore chain that has embraced gun control in recent weeks.
#CNNTapes: Network Operative Accuses Tucker Carlson, Fox News of “Naked Racism” in Leaked Calls
Jealous of Tucker’s ratings?
A CNN operative accuses Fox News host Tucker Carlson of “naked racism” in leaked network conference calls obtained by Project Veritas. Veritas released the first of its #CNNTapes on Tuesday day, hours after James O’Keefe confronted the network’s fake news kingpin Jeff Zucker on the channel’s daily conference call.
“I think it’s unavoidable that you have to talk about the naked racism of Tucker Carlson… Sort of the “White Supremacy Hour” they have on Fox News every night…”
— James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) December 2, 2020
O’Keefe identified Carlson’s accuser as CNN Vice President Marcus Mabry. However, the network’s communications arm chimed in after the footage was released, claiming the voice maligning Carlson was in fact CNN General Counsel David Vigilante.
James & Tucker, the voice you ID’d tonight as “Marcus Mabry” is actually GA resident & CNN General Counsel David Vigilante. We’re certain you’ll want to correct the record and apologize to the Black executive for assuming he was the voice raising concerns over white supremacy.

Tucker Carlson hosts the most highly rated program on cable news, routinely surpassing CNN’s fledgling evening content. An average of more than 5 million people watched Tucker Carlson Tonight nightly in the month of October.
In comparison, CNN’s Anderson Cooper attracted the interest of a paltry 2.1 million viewers in October, half the audience of Carlson.
In more #CNNTapes released by Project Veritas on Tuesday night, Zucker compared Donald Trump’s choice not to concede as litigation regarding voter fraud is adjudicated to 9/11.
CNN's Zucker equates @realDonaldTrump not conceding and letting the transition go through to what happened when America was attacked on 9/11/2001

Elite liberals said the same thing about the hoax of “Russian interference” in the 2016 election, claiming that any event which displeased them was analogous to the worst terrorist attack in the history of the United States.
CNN had flailed with bogus threats of legal consequences when the release of the #CNNTapes became imminent, falsely claiming that releasing the content represented a criminal offense.
Legal experts say this may be a felony. We‘ve referred it to law enforcement.

Media business experts have indicated that CNN parent company Time Warner is seeking to sell the fake news network, worried that the hysterical channel will lose its appeal in the event that President Trump isn’t in office.
