A high-ranking executive at the National Rifle Association resigned Wednesday, the same day the NRA announced the end of NRATV amid turbulent relations with its advertising firm, Ackerman McQueen. Chris Cox, the gun group’s chief lobbyist and principal political strategist for the Institute for Legislative Action — the association’s lobbying arm — stepped down from his position Wednesday.
The move comes about a week after the NRA placed him on leave over accusations he tried, unsuccessfully, to extort Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre. The NRA didn’t immediately respond to CBS MoneyWatch’s request for comment.
The article goes on to state the following:
LaPierre, in a statement on the NRA’s website, blamed advertising firm Ackerman McQueen, from which it has split, for the end of NRATV as it’s currently known. “Whether and when we return to ‘live’ programming is s a subject of ongoing analysis,” LaPierre said in the statement.
“As of Tuesday night, NRATV was still streaming prerecorded content, and the Times said its archives could remain online. However, the network will end live broadcasting and new production, and its on-air personalities, such as Dana Loesch, ‘will no longer be the public faces of the N.R.A.’” HuffPost reports.

Dana Loesch wasn’t an activist or a spokesperson — she was a professional mass shooting enabler. Thoughts and prayers won’t save lives, but her losing her job absolutely will.
