The Morning Rant

"More fake news: Reuters reported that the Texas church shooter was the owner of a gun range. Oops, no he wasn't. The owner of the gun range was the guy who took down the actual shooter and prevented more deaths and injuries. Reuters retracted the story, which is good, but I have to wonder how them mistake was made to begin with. So we have the shooter and the shooter stopper, and one of them own a range. Why would the original reporter confuse the two? And why would his editor sign off on the story?

"I mean, if I, personally, were the editor and I read his copy, the *very first* question I would have for him would be 'wait, you're saying that a church was shot up by a guy who owns a gun range? Seriously? I'm not saying you're wrong, but I'd like you to do a little bit more checking on that before we go to print.' Because if that turned out to be true, it would be a first.

"But perhaps editors don't know that.

"Also, why do these errors always seem to go in one direction? It's never anything like: 'our original story was that the shooter was a crazed Islamist terrorist, but we have since determined that it's a racist Christian Republican businessman whose daughter was going out with a black guy.' You never see that. Except, perhaps, on old episodes of Law & Order."
