    President Trump issued a proclamation Tuesday ordering flags flown at half-staff on federal buildings to honor the five victims of the Capital Gazette shooting in Annapolis, Md., the White House said. The decision follows a request over the weekend by Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley (D), which he said was initially not granted. ~snip~ During a news conference on the Annapolis waterfront Tuesday morning, Buckley thanked Trump but relayed frustration over the process. “We waited all of Saturday, all of Sunday,” Buckley said. “We understood maybe there was some communications problems. We waited all day Monday and didn’t hear anything.” ~snip~...

    We Hunted the Mammoth ^ | June 30, 2018 | David Futrelle
    By David FutrelleSeveral hours after the news broke that a gunman had shot five people dead at the Capital Gazette newspaper offices in Annapolis, Maryland, but before we knew much of anything about the shooter himself, I took a look at the forums on Incels.me to see if anyone on the site was saying anything about this latest mass killing.Incels, after all, have an almost reflexive tendency to praise or excuse anyone who kills a high enough number of the “normies” incels consider their sworn enemies, and many of them worship incel mass killer Elliot Rodger as a virtual saint.But...
  • Capital Gazette takes hit at Trump: 'We won't forget being called an enemy of the people'

    The staff of the Capital Gazette took a jab at President Trump, days after a gunman opened fired in their newsroom and killed five people. The staff of the Annapolis, Md., newspaper released a letter on Sunday to thank those who have offered support in the aftermath of the shooting. “We won’t forget being called an enemy of the people,” the staff wrote. “No, we won’t forget that. Because exposing evil, shining light on wrongs and fighting injustice is what we do.” Their comment appears to be a thinly-veiled hit at Trump’s use of the phrase to attack members of...
  • 2 Reasons Why the Media Will Drop Coverage of the Capital Gazette Shooting

    On Thursday, four journalists and one staff member of the Capital Gazette were murdered in the newspaper’s Annapolis, Maryland, office. While the event was initially widely covered by all major news outlets, the media is likely to quickly move on from the story, just like it did with the Santa Fe High School shooting, because it doesn’t fit the right narrative. (Unlike many of the Parkland students, the Santa Fe students didn’t respond to the tragedy by calling for gun control measures.) That in itself is a shame, not just because there is much to learn from this tragedy, but...
  • Reporter Resigns After Claiming Annapolis Shooter Had MAGA Hat

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 06/30/18 | Dean Weingarten
    In the early reporting of the Capital Gazette mass murder, Conor Berry, a reporter for a Massachusetts newspaper, The Republican, tweeted that the shooter had dropped his MAGA hat on the newsroom floor before opening fire. It was a stupid remark, not to mention one for which Berry had no supporting facts, which he has since acknowledged. What makes such tweets particularly toxic is that they color early perceptions of these events, and tend to become urban legends and the stuff of conspiracy theories. BerryÂ’s tweet was similar to earlier instances such as cable talking heads speculating that other shooters...

    A former CNN producer criticized White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Friday for blaming the deadly shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper on President Donald Trump. President Trump addressed the shooting at an event celebrating the six-month anniversary of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and described the deadly attack as one that “filled our hearts with grief.” “This attack shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief. Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job,” President Trump said. ”Journalists, like all Americans, should be free...

    The suspect charged in a deadly shooting at a Maryland newspaper office on Thursday used a pump-action shotgun that was legally purchased, according to the local Arundel County police. "We've confirmed I think already that it was a shotgun used in the incident," Police Chief Timothy Altomare said at a press conference on Friday. "I will also confirm that it was a pump action shotgun, it was legally purchased a year or so ago." Altomare said the attack on the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., was a "targeted" attack. CNN reported early Friday that suspect Jarrod Ramos was charged with...

    “You’re about to see a raft of news stories claiming that I am responsible for inspiring the deaths of journalists,” Yiannopoulos wrote in a Facebook post. “The truth, as always, is the opposite of what the media tells you.” “I sent a troll about 'vigilante death squads' as a *private* response to a few hostile journalists who were asking me for comment, basically as a way of saying, 'F---k off.' They then published it,” he continued. “Amazed they were pretending to take my joke as a 'threat,' I reposted these stories on Instagram to mock them – and to make...

    A prominent anti-gun crusader called out the National Rifle Association less than two hours after an active shooter was first reported at an Annapolis newsroom. Five people were reported dead at the Capital Gazette building, and multiple more were injured. Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts used the tragedy in an attempt to debunk a tweet the NRA put out earlier in the day. “An armed man is a citizen, an unarmed man is a subject,” the NRA tweeted, which included a 17 second montage of newspaper headlines illustrating times that firearms deterred crime or saved lives. Watts replied hours...
