Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: The National Rifle Association of America (NRA) is an American nonprofit organization which advocates for gun rights. Observers and lawmakers see the NRA as one of the top three most influential lobbying groups in Washington. The NRA also has a video channel called NRA TV. NRA TV has been accused of promoting strong anti-left sentiment. A study of over 200 videos demonstrated that only 1 in 5 were actually about guns with the rest being extreme right propaganda against the left. The NRA also has a right wing bias as it supports Republican candidates and alleges that Democrats are attempting to restrict gun rights. Further, the NRA has a mixed track record with facts. Overall, we rate the National Rifle Association (NRA) borderline extreme right biased based on promotion of propaganda and Mixed factually due to several failed fact checks. (11/20/2016) Updated (D.
