NRA and Fake News

Background Information
This ad was shown to men in Texas and some other states and sponsored by the National Rifle Association. The organization wants people to distrust news about rising levels of crime and violence. More fear and less trust in government, police or other social institutions is good for the gun business.
Technique Used
Attack Opponents
This is propaganda because
Journalism's ability to separate truth from lies makes it easy for them to spot the "spin" offered by the National Rifle Association. We could dramatically cut down on violence in the United States if we had tougher gun laws as they have in most other nations around the world. NRA benefits from media mistrust.
