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.
SHAMEFUL: Fox News Censors Newt Gingrich for Correctly Stating George Soros’ Role in Fomenting BLM Terror
Et tu, Fox News?
A Fox News panel lost their minds earlier today when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned George Soros’ role in supporting Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terror displays.
Gingrich told Fox News host Harris Faulkner that it is district attorneys funded by George Soros who are responsible for the violence because they routinely allow violent rioters to be back on the streets. This is when the situation became extremely awkward and tense.
“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” left-wing panelist Marie Harf interjected.
“He paid for it,” Gingrich responded.
“George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation,” Harf commented.
“Okay,” Gingrich said confusedly. “So it’s verboten.”
“Alright, we’re good,” Faulkner said to cut Gingrich off. The clip ended with a bizarre period of silence before Faulkner tersely changed the subject.

While it may be expected that a liberal commentator might not want to discuss Soros, the fact that Faulkner – a supposedly non-biased straight news anchor – would carry water for the progressive oligarch is highly disconcerting.
Of course, Gingrich brought up a great point about Soros bankrolling far-left DAs who protect rioting terrorists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
Big League Politics reported on how a Soros front ponied up a large donation to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after she vowed to prosecute the McCloskey family for standing up for their rights against a left-wing mob coming to their doorstep:
A front funded by far-left billionaire George Soros has issued a $78,000 donation to the re-election campaign of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who is currently investigating the McCloskey family for defending their property against a marauding mob outside of their home.
The Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC made the donation. This is a Washington, D.C.-based entity that also papered over Gardner’s campaign in 2016. They have apparently re-branded from “Safety and Justice PAC” to “Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC” in order to dupe voters that they are a state-wide organization. Soros’ minions admit the oligarch’s collaboration with the fronts.
“Yes, it’s no secret we contribute to Safety and Justice PACs,” Soros spokesman Michael Vachon, said to Just the News. “We are for criminal justice reform.”
Gardner is railroading the McCloskeys after they were forced to confront left-wing terrorists who had barged through a gate and were threatening their home. The McCloskeys have had their home raided, their firearms confiscated, and their lawyer expects Gardner to officially file charges against them in the days to come.
“I believe the charges are imminent based upon Gardner’s past administrative actions and I believe any charges filed are wholeheartedly unwarranted,” said St. Louis attorney Joel Schwartz, who is serving as legal counsel for the McCloskeys.
Mary Pat Carl, a lawyer who quit her job as a homicide prosecutor after Gardner won election, is attempting to unseat Gardner. She claims that nearly 40 percent of prosecutors have resigned under Gardner’s stewardship, showing how disastrous her tenure has been for the rule of law and public safety.
President Donald Trump has more frequently accused Fox News of being a tool for the globalists in recent months.
.@FoxNews just doesn’t get what’s happening! They are being fed Democrat talking points, and they play them without hesitation or research. They forgot that Fake News @CNN & MSDNC wouldn’t let @FoxNews participate, even a little bit, in the poor ratings Democrat Debates…..

….fraud @donnabrazile (and others who are even worse). Chris Wallace is nastier to Republicans than even Deface the Nation or Sleepy Eyes. The people who are watching @FoxNews, in record numbers (thank you President Trump), are angry. They want an alternative now. So do I!

Based on their covering for Soros’ role in supporting ANTIFA/BLM terrorists, Trump seems to be correct in his assessment. Fox News has been subverted by globalists, and alternative “America First” cable outlets such as OAN and Newsmax need to be supported by Trump supporters.
