On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young invite conservative columnist Stacy Washington onto the podcast. Recently, Stacy was suspended from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch because she defended the NRA in one of her op-ed pieces, arguing against a claim that the NRA is more dangerous to America than ISIS.
Stacy tells her side of the story and talks about her experiences – in both the media and her life – as a proud and outspoken gun-owning African American conservative woman. They discuss the out-of-touch, dying newspaper industry – usually run by liberals – and talk about the mindset of some Americans that keep them from getting ahead.
