Ed Gischer of Lemay shows how the burglar pointed a gun to his head
Whoa. KMOV Channel 4 has gone way
What is reporter Maggie Crane
the story of 69-year-old Ed Gischer
This is the guy who, in the wee hours of Monday morning, was snoozing in his Lemay home when a masked burglar kicked in the back door, pryed open the locked bedroom door, and pressed the muzzle of a gun to the old timer's forehead.
The crook tried to tear off the old man's gold chain. But it was a gift from his dead daughter, so Gischer fought back -- despite a bum leg from a stroke. He grabbed his own gun, pointed it at the thief. The thief bolted.
It's an incredible story of Second Amendment badassery. And exactly the kind of story that conservative blowhard Glenn Beck
, just two weeks ago at the NRA convention here in St. Louis
, said that the media would NEVER report. Now, why would Glenn say that?
Wait, let's back up and look at what Beck said.
The media is corrupt! Thank God I've given you GBTV!
"There is real trouble because the media is not showing the truth," Beck told
thousands of the gun-loving faithful assembled in the Edward Jones Dome on Saturday, April 14. "Nobody reports anywhere when somebody saves a life or stops a crime because they're a responsible citizen with a gun."
Beck sketches out six such examples, but only briefly. If you want to learn more, we suggest you look at the media coverage that Beck says doesn't exist:Gun story #1 that Glenn Beck said the media refused to cover (except that it actually did)Gun story #2 that Glenn Beck said the media refused to cover (except that it actually did)Gun story #3 that Glenn Beck said the media refused to cover (except that it actually did)Gun story #4 that Glenn Beck said the media refused to cover (except that it actually did)
Gun story #5 that Glenn Beck said the media refused to cover (except that it actually did)Gun story #6 that Glenn Beck said the media refused to cover (except that it actually did)
You may wonder why Beck would spout such blatant lies. But hey -- did you know Glenn Beck has started his own Internet channel called GBTV
Yeah! He mentioned it in that same speech
he gave at the NRA conference in St. Louis:
.... The media is corrupt, the media is irresponsible. In many cases they are colluding with those who want to destroy the United States of America. And in the best case scenario, they're stupid, lazy, asleep or suffering from something I like to call 'cowardice.' But the media is not telling you the truth. That's why we started GBTV.com. I'd just like to throw that in real quick in case you'd like to subscribe. You could subscribe, it's only five bucks a month.
He delivered that last line with a joking voice, to be fair.
Because he was totally kidding.
So listen here, KMOV. You are corrupt, irresponsible, stupid, lazy, asleep and suffering from cowardice.
You'd better start acting like it. Otherwise, GBTV won't make five bucks off any more suckers.
