NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch warned The New York Times in a NRATV Twitter video Thursday, saying “We’re coming for you,” The Hill reported Friday.
“We’re going to laser-focus on your so-called ‘honest pursuit of truth.’ In short, we’re coming for you,” said Loesch, who is also a conservative radio host.

Though it is not clear what prompted the video, Loesch also called the Times an “old gray hag,” perhaps referring to the newspaper’s nickname of “old gray lady,” and said, “Consider this the shot across your proverbial bow.”
“We’ve had it with your constant protection of your Democrat overlords, your refusal to acknowledge any truth that upsets the fragile construct that you believe is real life,” Loesch also told the Times.
“And, we’ve had it with your pretentious, tone-deaf assertion that you are in any way truth or fact-based journalism,” she added.
The NRA last month targeted The Washington Post, calling the newspaper a “fake news outlet” and accusing them of trying to take away gun rights. And, earlier this year, the NRA released a recruitment video where Loesch attacked the media and Hollywood.
