Here’s why the YouTube HQ shooting story will disappear fast

There was a shooting at YouTube headquarters in California on Tuesday. Several people were injured and the shooter is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot:

Some on the Left immediately pounced before any details were known, but here are several reasons why the story will magically disappear from the MSM radar rather quickly:

That sound you just heard was the MSM, with the help of a lot of Dems, flushing that story down the talking points toilet.

The media’s challenge is to now find a way to make a shooting done by a leftist, non-Christian, non-male PETA member the fault of the NRA. They won’t be able to, so the story will disappear fast, just like any other liberal narrative-buster like this one:

A witness to the shooter near YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California said during a Tuesday interview on Fox News that he wished he had a gun during the situation.

“What was going through your mind?” a reporter asked. “I mean, people dropping, being shot multiple times, bullets whizzing, people bleeding. What’s going through your mind?”

“I knew I had to be smart,” the witness said. “You’ve got to be fast. You’ve got to think fast.”

“I didn’t have a gun on me, but I wish I did,” he added.

You won’t be seeing that guy interviewed on any network newscast.
