When Reporters Are Assigned The Wrong Stories, Fake News Results

posted on June 14, 2017

A totally bogus story posted at shareblue.com proves what happens when so-called “journalists” write about topics on which they are completely ignorant.

In the report, Alison R. Parker wrote about the federal effort to deregulate firearm suppressors: “Without the need to pass a background check, violent felons, domestic abusers, terrorists, and other dangerous people would have largely unfettered access to silencers, and thus the capacity to commit deadlier crimes without the sound of gunshots to alert bystanders.”

Parker, a freelance writer who specializes in reproductive justice and LGBTQ rights, apparently didn’t feel the need to do any actual research on the topic of suppressors. Just in case she wants to address the issue again, we’ll refer her to none other than that anti-gun bastion The Washington Post, which wrote: “There is little that’s quiet about a firearm with a silencer, unless one also thinks a jackhammer is quiet.”
