Mediaite's Tommy Christopher has the deets:
Earlier this month, retired astronaut and Gabby Giffords husband Mark Kelly purchased some firearms at an Arizona gun store, and posted a photo of the purchase on Facebook, along with a message about the ease of background checks. Breitbart News then reported that Kelly purchased a .45 semiautomatic pistol and a used AR-15, then posted a message about the purchase on Facebook, and heavily implied that Kelly only made that revelation on Facebook because Breitbart News was asking around about it. Lost on the wingnuts who promoted this smear was the fact that Kelly had himself photographed filling out the background check form, a fairly ironclad piece of evidence that he always intended to post about the purchase on Facebook.
Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and reporter Trace Gallagher also obscured that crucial factwhen they presented Breitbart News’ accusations as a legitimate controversy, and cherry-picked a clip from Mark Kelly’s interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that did not include Kelly’s refutation of the Breitbart smear.
Yesterday, Mark Kelly released a video proving his case... and crickets from Fox, according to Christopher. At least as of this morning. Just like always when it comes to Breitbart's journalistic misdeeds.
They feed you that it’s staged, and “just propaganda”- Even though the NRA recreated the study to try debunking it and got the exact same result on each try.
But feed the happy little derpmonkeys a story like this, they have every word of how Breitbart/Fox News/Rush Limbaugh want them to word it by heart in 15 seconds- and literally no amount of proof that they’ve been lied to can sway them.
Yes, they really are that far gone.
