The mainstream media seems to think their job is to publish state-sponsored propaganda instead of facts. The latest example comes from MSNBC.
I am not sure that MSNBC qualifies as mainstream media but they think they are so I will go with it for now.
MSNBC posted an edited tape of Neil Heslin, father of murdered Sandy Hook child Jesse Lewis, as he provided testimony about gun control. The article which included the tape was entitled, Emotional father of Sandy Hook victim heckled by gun nuts.
The only problem with the article is that it was meant to enrage people against gun rights advocates by leaving out one important segment in the tape which included a question by Mr. Heslin. Mr. Heslin asked, seemingly of the audience, why anyone would need an assault-type weapon or large-capacity magazines.
Aside from the content, the question is important because the alleged “heckling” was actually not heckling but rather a response to this question. MSNBC made it appear as if Mr. Heslin was interrupted and heckled by “gun nuts” out of the blue.
The anti-gun nuts have an agenda and they don’t mind using victims’ families to push it FORWARD.
In the unedited tape, you will see that Mr. Heslin asked a question, hesitated, and then gave the impression that silence meant no one had an answer, which prompted one person to say “second amendment” and another to say “shall not be infringed.” There are reports that other gun rights advocates in the audience spoke out. It is impossible to know the truth without having been there.
