The Chicago Tribune has Issued a Correction

…for a TRULY EGREGIOUS case of ignorant assault weapon fearmongering in an article of theirs. Specifically, this bloodboiling graphic:

Recognize that little loop, children of mine? The one that FOR SURE isn’t a “grenade launcher”? Compound the labeling libel injury by idiot verbiage like, “…allows the weapon to be used like a spear…” and you can see where they might have, as they so deftly put it in the mea culpa, “automatically raises[d] questions about our credibility.” Think? I suppose so, if you had any.

Here’s the whole, unbelievably arrogant “oopsie” and READ THE COMMENTS, which, quite rightfully, rip them a new…slinghole.

    Very sympathy for the Tribune in those comments. Heh heh heh!

    Just keep talking Tribune and look stupider and stupider. Morons…

    Back when I lived in Chicago, the Tribune was actually the better paper. Hell, they went out of their way to bust the union in their print shop.

    No more. It’s as worthless as the NYT.

  4. JeffS says:

    And that should be “very LITTLE sympathy” in my first comment. The coffee, she didn’t kick in quickly enough.

  5. Kathy Kinsley says:

    Ack. I’m with those comments. Though I might change “very little sympathy” to “no sympathy at all”

    Sigh. I’m SO tired of the clueless.
