During their town hall event on gun control this week. CNN stood by and said nothing as Dana Loesch of the NRA was accused of being a child murderer. The next day at CPAC, Loesch said during a speech that the liberal media loves mass shootings for the ratings. That got some people at CNN pretty upset.
So when Loesch appeared on the network today, Alisyn Camerota tried to shame Loesch but it didn’t work out too well.
The Daily Caller has the exchange:
Dana Loesch Butts Heads With CNN Anchor Over Shooting Coverage
National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch went head-to-head with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota over the network’s coverage of last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Camerota told Loesch during a CNN interview on Friday that those claims were “malicious” and that “no one in the media loves mass shootings.”
“You’re saying that it’s malicious, but yet on your network you’ve allowed accusations against me and millions of law-abiding Americans to be indicted as child murderers,” Loesch responded. “I’ve watched you, Alisyn, on your program.”
“We never said that, Dana!” Camerota shot back.
“You’ve allowed that to stand uncorrected on your network,” Loesch said, doubling down. “It is true. Your network’s coverage … you’ve allowed those accusations to stand, Alisyn. Please follow what I’m saying.”

Alisyn Camerota to NRA spokeswoman: “You think we love mass shootings? … It’s just malicious, actually, that you would say that. I don’t know anybody in the media who likes mass shootings… We pray that there’s never another one.” https://t.co/qzE1DxoncO https://t.co/a0QY03VTYU
