CNN embarrasses themselves again with shooting video

On Wednesday, CNN aired an embarrassing clip of one of their employees attempting to shoot an AR-15 in a segment highlighted by inaccurate statements from both CNN and a retired military officer.

Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling accompanied CNN’s Gary Tuchman to a shooting range for a demonstration on shooting the AR-15, which drew instant mockery on social media.


I think some shooting lessons for both the reporter and the General are in order. Neither of them look like they know what they’re doing.

    Lemme guess. The general is one of Obama’s promotions to JCS.

    Well, I checked. He’s almost as I alleged above. Read the para’s 1 thru three at the link: This is what we get out of West Point since ‘Nam. You’d think he’d know better since he served in Iraq during the surge.

    “…So he knows what the AR-15 which used to be a weapon of war can do….”

      Well, about as stupid as what Diane Feinstein said today about the AR-15, something to the effect that the AR was a new gun, just recently brought to market.

      Well, I guess if you are 200 years old, a gun that was first sold to civilians in the 50’s and early 60’s.

      Hey, did you know Wikipedia is ‘reviewing’ the entry on the AR-15 so it’s not up for reading? Gee, whoda thunk Wikipedia would ban an article about a common item. Makes you kinda suspicious of any entries on Wiki, doesn’t it?

    Trying to figure out which one was the bigger pussy, the reporter with ” I’m taking a big dick up the ass’ face while shooting the AR, or the Lt. Gen holding the rifle like a girl talking bullshit.

    Very poor journalism if truth is what you’re seeking.

    The first ten seconds were comedy gold!

    Damn. Look at that target. I don’t want to sound like I’m bragging but I would be embarrased if I shot that group (spray) with my Kimber Ultra
    Paul in Texas

    Weapons grade stupidity on display. I’ve seen better weapons handling from basic trainees. That guy maybe a “general” but he clearly does not have the slightest clue as to what he doing or talking about. Based on this video, I have forgotten more about weapons the what the General knows.

    • Wirecutter says:

      He was probably a general in the Finance Corps and hadn’t picked up a weapon since he graduated from whatever military school he attended prior to his commission.

    • wildbill says:

      Generalship is political, not merit based. I read something to the effect that when we get into a war we don’t do well for the first year or so until the political generals are replaced with the qualified generals. Then we kick ass. Then peace is achieved and the warriors are sacked and politics takes over.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
