National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch said the media “love mass shootings” because they are “ratings gold,” in remarks at the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference. Speaking to the media the morning after she appeared on CNN’s town-hall forum with student survivors, teachers, and families of last week’s Florida school shooting, Loesch said that “many in legacy media love mass shootings. I’m not saying you love the tragedy but you love the ratings, because crying white mothers are ratings gold... If it bleeds, it leads, doesn’t it?” She also asked where “the voice of the Junior ROTC members” was at the CNN special Wednesday, and where the town halls were for “sanctuary cities” and grieving black mothers “in Chicago.” She also targeted the FBI, saying that they “dropped the ball,” and blamed former FBI Director James Comey for politicizing the agency rather than doing their “job more” before the Parkland shooting.
