More often than not, what we as conservatives deal with from the media is a group trying to find controversy and weave narratives into politics that are not there. They work very, very hard to try to put things into pre-ordained narratives.
In fact, as you can see from the screen shots below, though the shooting happened before former Congresswoman Karen Handel took the stage, the breaking news alerts did not come out until after she had left the stage. As I was actually on the stage that entire afternoon interviewing people, I did not even learn of the shooting until that night at dinner.
Cell service and WiFi was limited in the ballroom.
I’m really sure it makes a really good story that we worked to avoid asking Republicans about the question because the media really is biased and I appreciate the AJC working hard to show that bias in this report. But had any of the reporters picked up the phones — every one of whom has my number — I would have been able to tell them and show them the reason the subject did not come up is because I did not know about the issue and the news did not break nationally for several hours.
