    I Can't Believe this was in the Chicago Tribune

    Two interesting things about this (besides the fact that is was published in the Chicago Tribune) that point out the bias of main stream news reporting, bias that pushes reporting into the area of fake news. First, 98% of mass shootings since 1950 happened outside the US and we rank 64th in the world for mass shootings. I wish we were much farther down, but based on reporting by the main stream media and the statements of politicians pushing for abandonment of the Second Amendment I would expect us to be #1. Second, look at the next to last paragraph which describes how ABC and NBC edited statements from a recent shooting to totally change the meaning. They have been caught doing this more and more. This is why I take much of their negative reporting on conservative topics with a grain of salt until I can confirm the story from some less biased sources.

    Rule of Thumb with Mainstream Propaganda Outlets: Look at everything they print, or say, as the opposite of what really happened.
