Video: CNN Brays For Gun Control During Coverage Of Police Standoff In Philadelphia

Published

Without any facts or details, network promoted the need for gun control

While admitting that it had virtually no details about an active shooter engaged with police in Philadelphia Wednesday night, CNN immediately called for more gun control, and even used the opportunity to promote Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ gun control proposals.

Reports now indicate that an armed suspect opened fire and wounded six officers in north Philadelphia during a nearly eight-hour standoff after a warrants was served to search for narcotics.

The Suspect is in custody, and all six police officers have been released from hospital.

However, while all of this was unfolding, and details were extremely scant, CNN had already decided that this was a great opportunity to engage in pure speculation and liberal activism.

Wolf Blitzer told viewers that the Philadelphia incident “comes as Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris is rolling out her plan to end gun violence.”

The pair then discussed gun control, and Harris even suggested that her gun control proposals would have prevented this incident (that they both knew absolutely nothing about at this stage) from happening at all.

After the segment finished, CNN host Dana Bash then admitted “this is an active situation” and “[w]e don’t know how this is going to end and more importantly we don’t know what it is all about.”

Still, this didn’t prevent Bash from calling for stricter gun control:

“I don’t want to say it’s the new normal, but it is this kind of situation where you have an active shooter is coming across our phones and coming across the phones and, you know, bulletin alerts of people all across the country very, very frequently, which is why here in Washington there has been a renewed discussion about whether or not finally the Republican and Democratic Party can come together and figure out ways to stop this, whether it is gun control, any form of gun control or other means.” Bash declared.

The conversation continued, with CNN Legal analyst Joey Jackson openly calling for gun control.

“Yes, there is a Bill of Rights. Yes, I do agree and do believe strongly in the second amendment, but we need on protect responsible gun ownership. Why is it that only 17 states, we have 50, have red flag laws?” Jackson asked.

“We need more states. We need the federal government to provide incentives or grant other states to have these laws. We need at the federal level, as Kamala Harris, you just had her on the show, has a proposal to get the federal courts involved.” he continued.

“These are important in as much as yes, we’ll protect your right to bear an arm. But if you’re not rational and you’re not reasonable, we’re going to take it away.” he added.

Jackson also repeated the often misleading ‘background check loophole’ argument.

Could it be any clearer that CNN is not a news gathering body, but rather is a Democratic activist network?

U.S. Capitol Lockdown Caused by Fire at Homeless Camp

Inauguration rehearsal cancelled.

A security alert at the U.S. Capitol which briefly caused panic, prompting a lockdown, turned out to be caused by a fire at a nearby homeless camp.

“Loud speakers at the Capitol warn of an “external threat”. Smoke can be seen in the distance with guards running,” tweeted a journalist on the scene.

After the lockdown was announced, people in the vicinity were told, “No entry or exit is permitted, stay away from exterior windows, doors. If outside, seek cover.”

The fire prompted an inauguration rehearsal to be cancelled and the participants to be evacuated.

It has now been revealed that the emergency lockdown was triggered “out of an abundance of caution” over a fire that started at a nearby homeless encampment.

An image posted to Twitter shows the fire, which occurred under the 695 bridge but was soon extinguished, allowing the lockdown to be lifted.

The state of emergency is a response to the storming of the Capitol earlier this month and alleged threats posed by armed extremists to the inauguration of Joe Biden.

However, despite defense officials telling the media that they fear an “inside attack,” they had to acknowledge that there was “no evidence of any threats.”

Fox News Ratings Plummet After Trump Supporters Abandon Network

CNN targets rivals OAN and Newsmax.

Fox News’ ratings have plummeted in the aftermath of Trump supporters abandoning the network, with the broadcaster registering its poorest showing since September 2000.

The Daily Beast reports that Fox News finished third to both MSNBC and CNN for three days running last week, their worst performance in over 20 years.

“On Wednesday, CNN averaged 5.941 million total viewers and 2.074 million in the key 25-54 demographic for the entire day, compared to MSNBC’s 4.543 million viewers overall and 1.106 million demo audience and Fox News’ total audience of 3.464 million and 852,000 in the demo.”

“The disparity increased on Thursday, with CNN drawing 3.854 million total viewers, MSNBC averaging 3.321 million, and Fox pulling in 1.935 million for the day. CNN also led in the demo, nabbing 1.193 million with MSNBC finishing second at 653,000 and Fox bringing in the rear at 384,000.”

“The streak continued on Friday as CNN finished first once again with 3.121 million total viewers, followed by MSNBC’s 2.816 million and FNC’s 1.702 million. In the total day demo, CNN drew 878,000 viewers, compared to MSNBC’s 512,000 and Fox News’ 320,000. MSNBC, meanwhile, experienced its highest-rated week ever, averaging a total of 3.1 million viewers.”

Much of the viewership loss is due to Trump supporters switching to competing conservative networks like OAN and Newsmax due to the perception that Fox News abandoned its implicit support for Trump over the last 2 years.

Host Chris Wallace’s debate moderator performance, during which he was seen to protect Joe Biden while shutting down Trump, also infuriated MAGA types.

With viewers defecting to Newsmax and OAN, both those networks are now being targeted by CNN in a transparent effort to have its competition silenced.

“We are going to have to figure out the OAN and Newsmax problem. These companies have freedom of speech, but I’m not sure we need Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and such bringing them into tens of millions of homes,” guest Alex Stamos told Brian Stelter yesterday.
