FAKE NEWS EXPOSED: Texas Tribune Caught Reporting Falsehoods about El Paso Mass Shooter to Demonize Gun Sellers

The fake news is at war with the 2nd Amendment.

Published

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.

Democrats’ Expert on Misinformation is CNN Hack Soledad O’Brien Who Has Pushed Fake News Incessantly for Years

The Democrats are shamelessly Orwellian.

CNN propagandist Soledad O’Brien appeared before Congress on Wednesday as the Democrats’ expert on combating “misinformation.”

During the hearing, she called for her competitors to be censored and for alternative perspectives from the globalist-mandated consensus to be crushed.

“When news organizations make decisions based on ratings rather than responsible reporting, disinformation flourishes in dangerous ways,” O’Brien said while appearing before Congress.

“Cover the fact that lies and propaganda are being disseminated, but do not book people to lie on your show, because it elevates them and presents a lie as another side. Stop posing every story as having two sides, some stories, in fact, have many many sides, and are more complicated. And also, lies don’t have a side,’ she added, describing her vision for how news should be covered.

However, if O’Brien’s advice were taken by newsrooms, she would never be allowed on anymore due to her record of spreading reckless conspiracy theories about Trump being a Russian asset and other nonsense.

News aggregator @amuse posted some of O’Brien’s greatest hits on the fake news leader over the past few years:

Big League Politics has reported on other times in which O’Brien humiliated herself by posting falsehoods:

As usual, members of our esteemed media were caught lying on Wednesday, this time about the motivations for President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Iraq to visit troops.

Much ado was made when Trump did not visit Iraq on Christmas Day. NBC said that he was the first president not to visit the troops as Christmastime, only to correct themselves after Trump left for Iraq late Tuesday night. This led leftists conclude that the media had “shamed” Trump into visiting our fine soldiers.

“Shaming him seems to work,” CNN’s Soledad O’Brien said in reply to a Tweet by Brit Hume.

Hume had noted that by the time left-wing actress had blasted Trump for not visiting the troops, he had already visited them. Hume blasted O’Brien for her apparent lack of understanding of the concept of time.

“Yes Ma’am,” he said. “Trump read this Tweet when it was posted and time-traveled himself back to yesterday and flew to Iraq. Genius take.”

… What was wrong was the assumption that Trump had to be “shamed” to visiting the war zone. Embarrassingly, these leftists were proved wrong by leftist POLITICO.

“According to a White House official, the Trump administration had been planning the trip for more than six weeks,” said a Wednesday POLITICO piece.

Of course, the piece chided Trump for not being able to keep his trip a secret, citing two of Trump’s remarks about a potential trip to a war zone. 

The Democrats are shameless in pushing their Orwellian agenda. They are at war with objective reality and will stoop to unfathomable depths to achieve absolute power.
