“The largest gun lobby in the US has said in a video ad (below) that it is ‘coming for’ the New York Times,” guardian.com reports. “National Rifle Association (NRA) spokesperson Dana Loesch, a prominent conservative media personality, attacked the newspaper in the video and called it an ‘untrustworthy, dishonest rag.'” Be that as it is . . .
Ms. Loesch is now the official face and voice of the NRA — as far as the mainstream media is concerned (see: image at top of the post). The “in your face, liberals” NRA spokesperson is getting more coverage than Wayne LaPierre’s received during his entire tenure as NRA Veep.
If you’re an NRA member, are you OK with Ms. Loesch’s feistiness, repping the nation’s oldest civil rights group? Or do you find her commentary unnecessarily strident and confrontational, given that pro-gun Republicans control the Congress and the White House?
