MRC Downplays Craziness of NRA Chief's Obama-Bashing
Topic: NewsBusters

In a Sept. 27 NewsBusters post, Media Research Center senior news analyst Scott Whitlock complained that MSNBC's Chris Matthews "included the National Rifle Association as part of the 'crazy far-right' who 'hate' Barack Obama," asserting that Matthews "bizarrely responded" to a clip of NRA president Wayne LaPierre "deriding the President's stated support of the Second Amendment as a 'big, fat lie.'"

But LaPierre said a lot more than that about Obama, which arguably justified Matthews' response. As the transcript Whitlock includes shows, LaPierre declared that there is "a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment in our country."

That's far beyond Whitlock's understated description of LaPierre's remarks, which heclaims is noting more than "suggesting that Obama is no friend of the Second Amendment."

LaPierre is ranting about massive conspiracies, and Whitlock just doesn't want to acknowledge how crazy that sounds.
