    Newspaper's 'shocking' stretch of facts

    Spokane newspaper pulls out stops to stop Idaho gun law change


    Shocking as this may seem to gun rights activists in both states (something on the order of Claude Rains’ “shock” that gambling was going on in Humphrey Bogart’s café in Casablanca), the Spokesman-Review’s editorial blasting the proposal appears to have – and we will be kind here – stretched a fact to justify its opposition.

    The Spokesman Review is not a newspaper that reports "just the facts'. A couple of weeks ago they again reported on the 90% gun trace data about guns from the US into Mexico. They, the editors of the Review, knowingly print false information.
    Dave, isn't there some kind of accountability newspapers can be held to?

    Yeah. Don't buy their paper. NYTimes is bleeding red ink by the second because they no longer report "all the news that's fit to print".

    Great artical Dave. Several of us tried to take them to task but I doubt they listened or care. Truth in reporting is no longer a priority at most newspapers it seems.

    That makes it "Half a Bill". Now for the Senate.
