MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle is doing her best to honor Piers Morgan’s request that the American media push for gun control. Earlier today, in response to these remarks by Paul Ryan:
Speaker Ryan in radio intv on Parkland, FL shooting: "it’s just a horrific, horrific, horrible shooting. I think we need to pray, and our hearts go out to these victims. And I think, as public policymakers, we don’t just knee-jerk before we even have all the facts and the data"

The alleged journalist tweeted this:
Knee-jerk reaction @SpeakerRyan? There have been 25 school shootings since Columbine. 18 this YEAR.
After Pulse shooting- NOTHING
After Vegas- NOTHING
After Congressional Softball practice shooting- NOTHING https://t.co/JgDFkvwAmF

Where to begin? How about with that “18” number?
There have not been 18 school shootings this year. The stat is bogus.
One school shooting is too many, but repeating false statistics is still major journalistic malpractice.

There have not been 18 this year. Stop lying.

your statistics are misleading but you know that

Your 18 figure is a lie and why we don’t watch or listen to you regardless of HOW BIG YOUR MAKE YOUR FONT.

That "18" figure is a lie. Stop using discredited far-left groups for information.

Do you mean to suggest that Everytown — who’s leading the highly dubious “18 school shootings this year charge” — might be more interested in pushing an agenda than in making sure that agenda has a basis in fact? Well, Stephanie Ruhle’s not about to let a little thing like the truth get in her way. What kind of journalist would she be if she did?
"18 this year"
You know, it's better to do a little research before mindlessly spouting a lie, just because it supports your ideology. Because public humiliation has got to be painful.

To be fair, Stephanie’s probably pretty accustomed to public humiliation by now.
