While the Media Research Center has been denouncing politicization of the shooting of Republican Rep. Steve Scalise -- while also doing its own politicizing -- its "news" division, CNSNews.com, has been more aggressive about politicizing it.
An anonymously written article -- credited only to "CNSNews.com Staff" -- serves up pro-gun propaganda with the headline "Congressman: ‘By the Grace of God, One of the Folks Here Had a Weapon to Fire Back’."
From there, it was time to impugn liberal rhetoric as the inspiration for the shooting spree. Craig Bannister uncritically touted Newt Gingrich blaming “an increasing intensity of hostility on the left" for the shooting, and Gage Cohen highlighted that the shooter, James Hodgkinson, "'liked' the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on Facebook," making sure to add: "On a related note, domestic terrorist Floyd Corkins, who shot up the conservative Family Research Council (FRC) in 2012, told the FBI that he learned about the group on the SPLC’s website, which has a 'Hate Map' that labels the FRC as 'Anti-LGBT.'"
Actually, the two incidents aren't related at all, and Cohen doesn't dispute the SPLC's description of the FRC as "anti-LGBT" -- good for him, since that's pretty much indisputable. But hey, why quibble with facts when there's a tragedy to politicize?
