A few days ago, Mother Jones ran an article detailing the atrocious behavior of “gun bullies” who reportedly spat on a woman in a wheelchair after seeing her on TV speaking in favor of gun control. It was the perfect story to illustrate just how vile and despicable these evil gun owners were, that they would spit on a woman. In a wheel chair. And that no one would help her. It evokes strong emotions — anger, hatred, and a desire to help this poor woman. In other words, it’s the perfect anti-gun propaganda piece. There’s just one problem: it never happened . . .
Check it out:
Hmm. So this incident reportedly occurred on April 25 at the Indianapolis airport after the concourse television aired a report on the Every Town for Gun Safety protest outside the NRA convention?
That’s odd – the TV report never made it on the Everytown for Gun Safety website.
And, since the Indianapolis airport airs CNN on their TV screens you’d think you could find their report on the protest on their website, right?
Nope. It’s not there.
CNN has no record of the protest.
TV Eyes also has no record of Jennifer Longdon on cable news on April 25.
It looks like Mother Jones was just caught in a lie.
They really ought to do better research next time.
