Fake News Network, Get This, Publishes FakeNews About Subject They're Girlishly Ignorant of (Guns), Refuses to Correct; CNN's Media Reporter Says "I'm not playing your game" of Journalistic Accuracy

CNN claimed the SKS that Rachel Maddow-inspired assassin James Hodgkinson used was a "variant of the AK-47."

It's not. And that's important, because claiming it's a "variant" of the fully-automatic AK-47 makes it a lay-up for banning by the gun-grabbers; CNN's "error" just happens to track with the language that gun control groups would prefer.

In fact, the one-shot-per-trigger-pull SKS was developed before the AK-47, making it hard to see how this gun could be a "variant of" the full-auto AK-47.

But they refuse to correct.

Several observations:

Once again, I repeat that the media's ignorance here is an ignorance they're proud of. They don't like icky boy-stuff; they like lots of whipped cream on their moccachinos.

This is Genteel Ignorance, a cultivated ignorance that one is proud of, like an aristocrat proud that he has no idea how to fix his own door. We have "people" for that, after all.

And the soft-handed Media Reporter Oliver Darcy, I'm sure, is quite proud that his hands never get any dirtier than the keys on his MacbookPro.

Second: These people pretend to be experts. They claim they know what The Facts!!! are. Capitalizations and italicization required.

Yet, when errors of fact are pointed out to them, they say "I'm not playing your game, man."

If you don't care about The Facts!!!, then, as Mary Katharine Ham once said, What is the point of you?

The media claim to be general experts in the cognitive decathalon. Yet any time someone attempts to correct them, they say "Facts are dumb and don't matter."

The media, as far as journalistic accuracy and facts go, is like a surgeon who intends to remove your pancreas. When you say, "Wait, doc, you said part of my liver," he says: "Pancreas, liver-- what's the diff, really? They're both Weird Organs that no one can really understand."

Finally, on that point, the media's claim is that they don't want to ban all guns, just the "bad" ones of particular propensity to misuse in mass assaults.

But then, when you point out they repeatedly misidentify which "bad gun" is involved in an attack, they tell you they don't care about such petty details.

So:

Media: We don't want to ban all guns, you Paranoid Gun-Lovers. We only want to ban the Bad guns.

Expert: But you just completely botched your identification of the "Bad" gun involved here.

Media: That doesn't matter, they all need to be banned eventually anyway.

They're giving the game away, and they don't even care that their lying is not even of the half-hearted level of exertion any longer.

They want you to know they're lying -- just as a serial killer, ultimately, wants you to know he's the one.

They're each proud of their respective butcheries. They want to be famous for them.

They are not just murdering facts; they are unleashing a Great Revolution with their ritualistic torture of basic facts. What is the point of doing so, if the world does not know who the Author of these noble murders is?
