Reporters are supposed to get at the truth. Since the mainstream press won’t do it, it is up to us to separate truth from political spin.
The media sells us sensational stories that might contain a small grain of truth. Some of those exaggerated stories are easy to recognize. Most of us can’t recognize the lies about honest gun owners.
