Episode Transcript

To every dishonest member of the failing American news media: Let me explain why you've never been less trusted, less credible or less respected. For decades, you ignored calls from millions of gun owners to just tell the truth. All you had to do was just get the facts right about our guns and our freedom.

But you never even pretended to listen. Instead you weaponized the First Amendment against the Second. And now the whole country sees you for the mockery we've always known. Your claim to the truth is as legitimate as a thief's.

If the fate of individual freedom had rested in your hands, America would have fallen long ago. But Americans put their trust somewhere else. And now, in your place stands the most trusted defender of individual freedom in American history.

We're the National Rifle Association of America. And we're Freedom's Safest Place.
