National Rifle Association (NRA) Spokeswoman Dana Loesch took The New York Times to task for its history of biased coverage, according to Loesch, in a video posted Monday, calling the newspaper an “ever-dutiful shill for the left.”

“Recently, The New York Times in its bid to remain relevant and influential tried to disrupt the narrative on fake news by promoting itself as truth,” Loesch said, referencing a television ad from the Times.

The NRA published a similar advertisement, attacking The New York Times for not covering certain events.

Loesch read out a response statement from The New York TImes to the NRA’s video:

“Our commitment to the truth isn’t new, it dates back 166 years. And, each and every story mentioned in the NRA’s video, from Benghazi to crime in Chicago, was covered in deep and rich detail by Times reporters.”

Unconvinced, Loesch cited misleading, false, or uncovered stories and critical events in the U.S. public interest.

“On September 11th, 2012, you ran with the fake news that the terror attack in Benghazi was caused by a 14 minute movie trailer on Youtube,” Loesch said as an image of the article popped up on screen. “You published that while men like Kris Paronto, John Tiegen, and Mark Geist, contractors actually on the ground in Benghazi, set you straight that this was a terror attack.”

Loesch criticized The New York Times for “continuing Hillary Clinton’s debunked blame game, even after emails produced showed her admitting to her own daughter that this was not the result of a video, but rather a terror attack.”

The NRA spokeswoman and conservative radio host also criticized the paper for its coverage of gun violence in Chicago, calling their use of the phrase “assault rifle” an “undefinable, go-to, scary buzzword.”

Loesch then concluded the video by calling The New York Times a “dishonest rag” controlled by “Democrat overlords.”
