Media Bias

Mike Hollihan:

The crucial difference? It’s one word: ‘assault.’

That word, often used in reporting on rifles, is seen by many readers and viewers as a loaded word employed by those who support gun control.

Well, I think it largely indicates ignorance. Continuing:

If the AK-47 involved is in fact a true assault rifle, one with full-automatic fire, then that is news. Scary news. But if it’s the standard model available in America, then calling it an ‘assault’ rifle is needlessly inaccurate and distracting.

    I wonder if the criminal who used the weapon could sue?
    The report is accusing him of a crime he did not commit. As such, it is libeling his character.

    Just a thought.

    Whoah. Now there’s a new thought.

    Since posession of an unregistered assault weapon is a federal felony, is the press describing a bone-stock standard semiauto rifle as such an actionable offense, since that seriously damages the reputation of the accused?

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
