We’ve gotten under the NRA’s skin

We reported the facts, and now they're on the attack.

The NRA is very, very mad at ThinkProgress.

NRATV, the gun lobby’s live-streamed propaganda outlet, spent most of Wednesday deriding our reporters. NRATV’s Twitter account repeatedly tweeted insults at us. They’ve called us “a fraud,” “people who read with pictures,” and “obscene.”

We’ve gotten under the NRA’s skin, and it’s not hard to see why.

Just a few weeks ago, ThinkProgress exposed the corporations that were in business with the NRA. After we published a list of companies enticing more people to join the NRA by providing additional benefits to NRA members, thousands of people demanded change. Under intense public pressure, dozens of corporations severed ties with the NRA.

If you value the accountability journalism that has angered the gun lobby so much, please join us. Become a ThinkProgress member for $5 a month.

Your support goes straight to the newsroom, where it will help sustain a team of more than 40 reporters and editors dedicated to bringing you the truth about powerful corporations. This work makes us an unpopular destination for the corporate-funded advertisements that fund most other news media sites, so we’re relying on readers like you.

It’s just $5 a month. We’ll use the money to make the NRA even madder.
