Fairfax, VA -( The national and local media bias against the Second Amendment reached bizarre heights this week when a newspaper headline proclaimed “Shooter kills 4; 30 injured.”

The problem? Well, even a casual reader would note that the tragedy described in the article had nothing to do with a “shooter” but was about a individual who drove her car through a homecoming parade at Oklahoma State University. While the motives of the driver’s actions remain unclear, we find it simply incredible that a headline could be so abundantly off the mark.

The newspaper responsible for the amazing disconnect between reality and reporting – The Traverse City Record Eagle – cited “page designer error” as the cause. Page designer error? Really?

As we have reported here, here, and here, the mainstream media continues to showcase an abundance of talent when it comes to incorporating an anti-gun bias in reporting the “news.” There is little doubt that such bias is a primary reason that trust in the media continues to diminish.

While this bias routinely shows up in local and national news coverage in all manner of form, missing the distinction between shooting a firearm and driving a car is a new one on us.

Meanwhile the Marxists masquerading as journalists fail to realize they only incite an angry and lawful tinder box. The fools are surrounded and too indoctrinated to know it.


But the vehicle had one of those dangerous AUTOMATIC transmissions! While we are at it, let’s blame table knives, forks and spoons for America’s obesity epidemic. Same reasoning applies.


The liberal media knows that most people don’t read the article, they read headline only. If they keep having “page designer errors”, more people will fall for their biased propaganda. Sound bites, one-liners, headlines are all the uninformed need to become brainwashed…and the liberals know it.
