Remember Olivia Nuzzi? She’s a liberal writer at the Daily Beast.
After a gunman opened fire at the Naval Yard in Washington, D.C., she went on Twitter with this:
Can't talk about guns now, it's too soon. *time passes* "So, gun contro–" *another mass shooting* Can't talk about guns now, it's too soon.
— Olivia Nuzzi (@Olivianuzzi) September 16, 2013
By the way, this was a reply to that tweet:
@Olivianuzzi One day European standards will be adopted state side and the carnage can end.

And then on October 1, 2015, she had this to say:
People who don't think there should be a lot of rules regarding guns sure have a lot of rules for how people can talk after a mass shooting.

Having tweeted those things immediately after tragedy, Olivia Nuzzi went on twitter as word was coming from Paris and tweeted this:
PSA: No one needs your take right now.

Then there is David Sirota. After the Sandy Hook shooting, David tweeted:
Notion that we cant talk abt bad stuff – 9/11, Katrina, mass shootings – b/c thats "political" basically says: "Shit happens. Deal with it."

Guns don't kill people, white men with guns kill people: http://t.co/MeqWTltZ

But, as news was still breaking from Paris this past Friday, David Sirota tweeted this:
Hey political hacks: Maybe refrain from issuing fact-free self-serving ideological statements while people are in process of being killed?

As a bonus, I won’t link to Salon, but that website actually tweeted this out:
