It seems as if once one media talking head uses a phrase, ALL of the other talking heads mimic and parrot without checking facts. Both of the newscasts. i just watched,NBC and Fox, cited the “sawed off” shotgun the Navy Yard shooter used.
It wasn’t, just like it wasn’t an AR15 as they originally reported. The shotgun he used was a pump action, 20″ barrel, home defense shotgun as sold in every firearms store in the country.
Why does it seem the media is more concerned about further sensationalizing an already explosive situation, than checking their facts before opening their mouths? Once it has been put on the airwaves the damage is done and it is seldom if ever retracted, or noticed by the public if an attempt is made.
