When CNN host Alisyn Camerota asked Loesch why she would say that the media loved grieving white moms, Loesch responded, “Because it’s true” and then noted that shootings give news media wall-to-wall coverage.

Watch below, and then let’s discuss where Loesch falls on a scale from Kellyanne Conway to Ann Coulter.
