CNN sends ‘Indian woman’ to NRA to get answers about Americans and guns, forgets to tell her about the trigger

CNN’s story on the National Rifle Association’s annual convention this week in Atlanta made up with uninformed opinion what it sorely lacked in unbiased reporting.

The piece was written by Moni Basu, an Indian-American woman who exhibited neither knowledge of nor respect fort firearms when she posed in photos with her finger on the triggers of various weapons.

Basu compared India — the country of her birth — to her adopted country, and found “the land of the free and the home of the brave” lacking.

“The Indians may have succeeded in ousting the British, but we won with Gandhian-style civil disobedience, not a revolutionary war,” she wrote.

She admitted that she never had any experience whatsoever with firearms, all of which begs the question: Why, then, was she the CNN journalist to report on the NRA convention?

Claiming that “few people here look like me,” Bosu wrote:

Around me are 80,000 of America’s fiercest patriots and defenders of guns. Many are wearing American flag attire and T-shirts with slogans like: “Veterans before refugees” and “God loves guns.”


She described the convention-goers as mostly white males, who had few good words for her employer. CNN has been described by President Donald Trump as customarily dealing in “fake news.”

Her piece was just the latest example, and Dana Loesch, an NRA spokeswoman and syndicated talk radio host, gave her and her network both barrels.

Soon others joined in, beginning by questioning why CNN would give Bosu this particular assignment.

That right would be guaranteed by the Constitution’s Second Amendment — which has often been described as the ultimate defender of the First Amendment, guaranteeing freedom of speech, religion — and the press.

Yeah, that’s the one.
