Headline Refers to Oklahoma State University Vehicular Maniac as “Shooter”

When a psycho kills people with a gun, establishment media apparatchiks are quick to blame guns. But when a psycho kills people with a car, they blame the shooter:

Nice work, Record-Eagle (a.k.a. Wretched Beagle). Never let the details of the story distract you from the narrative — not even when the story has nothing whatsoever to do with guns.

As is the standard practice with errors and particularly egregious misinformation, it was followed by an obscure erratum that few were likely to notice:

Because of a page designer’s error, a misleading headline appeared on page 3A in Sunday’s Record-Eagle accompanying a story about a driver who struck and killed four people at the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade on Saturday.

The “designer’s error” was made when reporters and editors were designed to obsess myopically on their mission to demonize firearms.

On tips from Manuel R and Torcer. Hat tip: Right Scoop.

    Throw the “page designer” under the bus. Nice. An editor would have been overseeing this, or perhaps “overlooking” this, to be more precise.

    If this doesn’t prove that the media is nothing more than the regime’s propaganda arm then nothing does. Journalism-the kind based on facts and looking for the truth-is dead. It is now the refuge of scoundrels.

    I’ve worked at two newspapers, a “page designer” has jack shit to do with the headline CONTENT. They just lay the copy out so it fits. A reporter wrote that headline, a copy editor approved it, probably a managing editor as well.

    So the false HEADLINE was the page designers fault, not the EDITOR? They should just do away with that position and save the money then. Just print whatever crap happens to come up on the designers screen that day, it would not be any less accurate that this BS and would be an honest error.

    The so called “main stream media” today could be replaced by MAD Magazine and no one would notice.
