Fox News Blames CNN and Atheism for Las Vegas Massacre

Fox News Blames CNN and Atheism for Las Vegas Massacre October 4, 2017

Blaming anything and everything but guns, Fox News claims CNN and atheism is responsible for the massacre in Las Vegas.

The dull minds at Fox and Friends struggled to explain the horrific domestic terrorist event in Las Vegas that claimed more than 50 lives and left over 500 seriously injured, and, as usual, they failed.

The fiasco began when forensic psychiatrist Michael Welner told Fox News on Tuesday morning that CNN was to blame for the mass shooting in Las Vegas, declaring:

I think that CNN’s going to have to answer how they demonize gun enthusiasts and how CNN actually contributes to mass shooting. And I think that they do.

From there, it only got worse, as  host Ainsley Earhardt made the ridiculous claim that atheism was somehow responsible for the massacre:

You know, Steve and Brian, what’s interesting, our last guest, the forensic psychiatrist said, “When you have someone who’s young that does something like this, they do it for notoriety; when you have someone who is older, they do it for a cause.”

And maybe this guy heard that song, God Bless America. His brother said he didn’t believe in God, or didn’t have a God, or didn’t have faith in his life, so maybe this is all speculation, but that possibly could be the reason, because he knows country musicians or country music fans are normally pro-God and go to church on Sundays. Maybe he has a problem with that or had a problem with that.

Later in the program Laura Ingraham seemed to agree with Earhardt that somehow atheism was responsible for the massacre, declaring:

We’ve done a lot to kick Christianity, God, to the curb in our society…

Bottom line: For Fox News, guns had nothing to do with the massacre in Las Vegas that claimed more than 50 lives and left over 500 seriously injured, instead, for Fox News, atheism and CNN are to blame. How convenient.
