"Maybe the Worst Piece of Journalism of All-Time"

Post by Bourt » 18 Jul 2014, 3:24 pm

You guys seen this yet? :lol:

Rolling Stone (renowned gun experts, right?) did a piece "The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America"

The list was (and I quote):
Pistols
Revolvers
Rifles
Shotguns
Derringers

LMAO :lol:

Spot the journo who's never seen a gun in her life...

Found via here - See Why Rolling Stone’s List of ‘Most Dangerous Guns’ Is Being Called ‘Maybe the Worst Piece of Journalism of All-Time’

Bet someone's getting a flocking from the fact-checking department...

The 5 Most Dangerous Motorcycles in America?

1. Cruisers
2. Street Bikes
3. Adventure Tourers
4. MX/Enduro Motorcycles
5. Retro / Café Racers

We’d like to give special recognition to the folks at Rolling Stone for helping frame the format of what is being widely considered “the worst piece of journalism” ever committed by a serious publication.

Theyve got a point though, the most dangerous types of firearms are guns. The threat is of course compounded by being used by the most dangerous type of people, those with 2 legs closely followed by those with one or no legs....
