The Radio Television Digital News Association is asking journalists to take a stand on social media against the National Rifle Association’s claims that the media loves mass shootings.
“Still reeling from the NRA’s outrageous claim that legacy media loves mass shootings? Take action and widely circulate on your social media channels,” wrote RTDNA executive director Dan Shelley in a Facebook post.
The campaign, which aligns with the organization’s First Amendment Task Force, focuses on journalists beliefs and their contributions to the community.
Last week, NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch addressed the Conservative Political Action Committee conference telling them “legacy media love mass shootings.”
The RTDNA has encouraged journalists to unite and post these posters across their social media platforms.
