This is from The Examiner.

The media knows there are sheeple that will believe everything they report.

The media will never be fact  checked by the sheeple.

 

Those behind a late-night attack … used an assault-style weapon to spray the crowd with bullets, making it ‘a miracle’ no one was killed,”an Associated Press “report” by “Authorized Journalists” Carla K. Johnson and Herbert G. McCann breathlessly declared. “Ballistics evidence shows that those behind Thursday night’s attack used a 7.62 mm rifle fed by a high-capacity magazine, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy told reporters.”

That’s as opposed to “personal defense capacity” magazines when “patrol rifles” are in the hands of government-sanctioned “Only Ones” like Chi-Town’s finest.

That “type of weapon,” McCarthy said, “belongs on a ‘battlefield, not on the street or a corner or a park…’”

If one didn’t know better, one would think he and his media chroniclers were talking about a select fire-capable rifle, the kind that actually are found on battlefields. Or one would think that’s what they want us to think.

Does anyone think Associated Press “reporters” don’t know better, or don’t know that McCarthy’s well-publicized objective is a nationwide semi-auto and magazine ban? Does anyone think Johnson and McCann are unaware of just whose talking point they’re all parroting?

“I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals,” Barack Obama proclaimed, himself parroting a ubiquitous gungrabber meme, “that they belong on the battlefields of war and not on the streets of our cities.”

Does anyone truly think professional reporters are unaware of the well-known and longstanding deception promulgated by the Violence Policy Center — which laid out the strategy back in 1988– by declaring that “The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons”?

Does anyone think that seasoned newshounds, with research skills and all the resources of the mighty AP at their disposal, could possibly be unaware of The Journalist’s Guide to Gun Policy Scholars and Second Amendment Scholars, providing access to any number of recognized experts, listed by specialty, location and name, whom they could consult on any issue imaginable pertaining to guns? If they wanted to…?

Does anyone wonder why “straight news” correspondents didn’t even try to solicit an opinion from someone who might have inputs on why banning semi-automatic rifles will not reduce violent crime? Or someone who might point out that McCarthy is exploiting them as a megaphone toscore political points with? Does anyone think they really believe his opinion is objective, or that they don’t know they’re being used — and approve of it?

Does anyone think the Associated Press — which didn’t even regard Fast and Furious government-facilitated “gunwalking,” where estimated hundreds have been killed, as a big enough story to rate inclusion in their “Top Ten” news stories for 2011 — has any interest in doing anything that doesn’t promote more government control, while ignoring, spinning and suppressing stories that don’t?

Does anyone think Carla and Herbert are lazy, incompetent, agenda-driven, dishonest, or some combination of these (perhaps all), or is there an alternative explanation that could account for the crap quality of their thinly-disguised propaganda piece presented to an unsuspecting public as “news”?

Does anyone have any questions about why Joe Biden refers to such as these using the term “legitimate news media,” and why Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin are so eager to legislate just who the government will recognize as a “real reporter”?
