Freakin’ media……

I caught the 10 o’clock news at 1:00 a.m. (weird, I know, but hey, I still watched it) and there was coverage of Chris at the Obama speech in AZ.

The news reporter said he was armed with a “semi automatic assault weapon”.

I paused it with DVR, hit rewind, and watched it another 3 times. I couldn’t believe my ears. I even turned on the closed captions to make sure I was indeed hearing that right. Yep, son of a gun. “Semi automatic assault weapon”.

I sincerely believe the media would call a bolt action rifle an assault weapon if they could spin it right.

  1. I’ve read “news” articles saying things like “semi-automatic revolvers.”
