Here's a great example of a fundamentally misleading mainstream media story. The theme is that "increasingly liberal" gun laws are creating tension with restaurant owners and among customers. Here's how the story opens...
Gloria DiCenco was chatting amiably with a few Italian speakers at Beyond Bread on North Campbell Avenue on April 20 when armed men began coming in.
First there were two, then more. Finally, maybe 20 people carrying holstered guns and, in some cases, ammunition, arrived and ordered food, DiCenco said. A hush fell over the restaurant, she said, and her group's happy mood turned tense.
Dude, open carry has always been legal in Arizona...and I mean "always", like before Tombstone. So this scary story in which nothing happened is nothing new, which means that it has nothing to do with the story. But it makes for great drama.
