Channel 12 Buys Fake News from CNN

One would think that the news management/editors at Channel 12 actually keep up with news.

One would be wrong. Channel 12 is running a highly-deceptive item on their website regarding the drug cartels' arms.

More than 70 percent of 29,284 firearms submitted to the U.S. Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms for tracing by the Mexican government during 2009 and 2010 originated in the United States, according to the report.

Unhhh, yah. AR's originate here, are sent to the Mexican Army, and are "stolen" from that Army.

And let's not forget that Eric Holder authorized massive 'straw-buyer' purchases of weapons in the US, then allowed those weapons to cross into Mexico, and then "lost track" of them.

Channel 12 may have heard of that, since there are Congressional hearings on the issue.

Google "Gunrunner" or "Fast and Furious." Catch up with the news.

You're assuming facts not in evidence - namely, that the "management/editors" at Ch 12 are connected in any way to their station's website other than to issue the paycheck to the 20-something computer nerd who aggregates the content for the site.

Thought and analysis are activities assigned to those making $12/hour, not $9.50/hr.

As you say, Tim, who says there was even a human involved?

But who cares about journalism? We've got Fox News!

Well, THAT'S reassuring.
