NRA on NYT Ad: Truth Doesn't Matter to the Times

The National Rifle Association ripped into The New York Times in a parody video released Monday, The Washington Free Beacon reports.

Responding to the Times' ad aired during the Oscars last Sunday, the NRA said in a statement that "America has stopped looking to the New York Times for the truth, now more than ever. The Times are burning and the media elites have been caught holding the match."

Titled, "The Truth," the message behind the 30-second Times ad was "to underline the importance of facts and encourage the support of independent journalism."

"In a world where there is so much uncertainty about what is real and what is fake news, we remain steadfastly committed to a search for the truth," wrote Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., the publisher of the Times.

The NRA starts its video with a question.

"The New York Times placed an ad during the Oscars to tell us that truth is more important now," text in the ad reads. "But why now? … Now, they want your trust?"

"The truth didn't matter to the New York Times then as much as now — because as long as liberals were 'progressing,' the truth was depressing," the NRA said.
