BREAKING: People ask why I share the @NRA’s revolting content. This is why: “...growing unease over [NRATV’s] inflammatory rhetoric, and whether it has strayed too far from its core mission, has put its future in doubt.”

Sunlight is the best disinfectant.  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/11/us/nra-video-streaming-nratv.html 

Also, @dloesch broke @NRA TV: “The flash point was Thomas the Tank Engine. Last September, the NRA’s famously combative spokeswoman provoked widespread outrage when she mocked ethnic diversity on the popular children’s program, portraying the show’s talking trains in KKK hoods.”

The article’s best line: “Loesch emerged as @NRATV’s most visible host, deriding gun-control advocates as ‘tragedy-dry-humping whores.’”
