The National Rifle Association targeted The Washington Post in an NRA TV video posted to social media Monday, suggesting the paper should change its slogan from "Democracy dies in darkness" to "Journalism dies at The Washington Post."
"For years, The Washington Post has tarnished gun owners in an effort to take away our Second Amendment freedoms," says the video, which is narrated by conservative radio personality Grant Stinchfield.
The "fake news outlet" ran a "blatantly false" report tying the NRA to Russia, Stinchfield says.
"But The Washington Post isn't mad about the lack of guns, it's upset about an abundance of truth," Stinchfield says. "The truth about their role in the organized anarchy of the 'violent left by spreading lies about those who disagree with their radical agenda."
USAToday reports Stinchfield also accuses the Post of "refusing to cover the extremist beliefs and tactics" of activists like DeRay McKesson and Carmen Perez.
"And liberal politicians like Chuck Schumer and Al Franken who refuse to condemn them," Stinchfield continues, as ominous music plays.

He also went after the paper for its story looking at new NRA videos that focus on politics rather than firearms.
