The NRA is in Chaos

Published

Things haven’t looked so great in National Rifle Association land lately.

Media Matters has taken joy in covering the NRA’s recent troubles.

It highlighted how Armed American Radio described the NRA’s financial troubles as a “self-inflicted wound” and joined other pro-gun media outlets demanding the resignation of Wayne LaPierre, the organization’s Executive Vice President and CEO.

BLP reported on LaPierre’s lavish spending sprees and the eventual closing of NRATV.

2019 has not been a good year for the gun organization.

Oliver North was ousted as NRA President earlier this year, while the organization decided to break ties with its long-time advertising partner Ackerman McQueen. The State of New York has even tried to investigate the NRA for supposed financial malfeasances.

In light of this fallout, several NRA members have demanded that the organization undertake a significant overhaul of its policies and leadership.

During an episode of Armed America Radio host Mark Walters and pro-gun commentator David Codrea discussed the NRA’s current quagmire. Codrea recently shook things up by saying that the NRA should fire LaPierre and added that the “dumpster fire” at the NRA may never be put out.

It remains to be seen what the NRA’s ultimate fate will be.

For no compromise gun organizations, the NRA is simply too moderate.

The American Firearms Coalition made noise at the NRA’s national convention in Indianapolis when they decided to call them out for their support of red flag gun laws.

BLP recently did an exclusive interview with AFC’s Executive Director Aaron Dorr.

Dorr criticized the “NRA fully supporting ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation” and routinely compromising on gun rights.

With an increasingly radicalized Left, the gun community needs a firm defense against these relentless enemies of freedom. The NRA may have been useful in the initial fight to legalize licensed concealed carry in the 1980s and 1990s, but it has now worn out its welcome.

The Second Amendment needs a new generation of leadership that is not bogged down by outdated tactics, internal corruption, and a refusal to fight for the full restoration of gun rights in America.

Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years

A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.

Published

Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.

This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.

Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.

MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.

This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:

  • The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
  • Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
  • Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
  • An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
  • A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
  • Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)

Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.

As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
