Twitchy wrote about Katy Tur yesterday when she teased an upcoming segment on MSNBC by asking, “Kids or guns. What do you value more?” Of course, things then got weird when she had on as a guest a man who says he “could have been” a school shooter if only he’d been able to get his hands on some guns.
It’s worth noting that on Tuesday, Tur specifically noted that the White House press corps was not there for spin.
The White House press corps is not here for spin today.

Of course not. Obama's term ended in January last year. https://t.co/gPV9CfdhCB

In the Obama years, this tweet would have read (if they were being honest….):
"The White House press corps is here to get their marching orders and talking points for the day." https://t.co/hZZNsedK2g

Oh, we get it … she’s talking about the White House’s spin, not that the press corps is there to spin what the White House says. Of course not.
…except for their own spin of course. https://t.co/PrYgmKnUoI

Didn't you just ask the American people the question of whether or not they should choose guns or kids? https://t.co/zDVGKIHjpD

Journalism = activism now.
I want your entire industry burned to the ground, Katy.
Yesterday. You are all nothing but rank propagandists who deserve to be exposed. https://t.co/B3yvuzbEYx
