The New York Times continues to cement its status as one of the most dishonest mainstream media outlets in America.
Ginia Bellafante recently wrote a piece where she used the death of Joe Joyce, owner of Brooklyn’s JJ Bubbles bar, to take a shot at Fox News and Trump.
On March 1, Joyce and his spouse went on a cruise to Spain. Joyce was an avid viewer of Fox News, namely Sean Hannity. The Fox News host went on air to say that Americans were getting “unnecessarily” scared by “this new hoax.”
Bellafante wrote that Fox “took the virus more seriously, but the Joyces were long gone by then.” In sum, Joyce died because he listened to Fox according to Bellafante.
But as the New York Post noted, “The Joyces were actually long gone by the time Hannity said those words, March 9. And there’s no indication their decision had anything to do with Fox or that Joyce contracted the coronavirus on the cruise.”
Ironically, Bellante herself downplayed the virus.
“I fundamentally don’t understand the panic,” Bellante tweeted on February 27, 2020. “Virus is not deadly in vast majority of cases.”
I fundamentally don't understand the panic: incidence of the disease is declining in China. Virus is not deadly in vast majority of cases. Production and so on will slow down and will obviously rebound. cc: @opinion_joe

In fact, many people, which includes Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also did not take the Wuhan virus threat seriously at that time. However, the Times, like most of the mainstream media, has been trying to scapegoat Trump and conservative outlets for not taking the Wuhan virus seriously.
“Arizona Man Dies After Taking Chemical in Coronavirus Treatment Touted by President Trump,” a Time magazine headline read. This case was about a man who ingested fish-tank cleaner containing chloroquine phosphate.
It’s become clear that mainstream media has an agenda that is all about attacking Trump and advancing globalist narratives instead of actually reporting on the news.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
