    Has anybody else noticed major BS going on in the media? In the recent incident in which a guy went to an immigration station and shot all those people was an example of such a thing. On the first report, eye wittnesses claimed that the shooter had a high-power rifle. (To the media a 223 would be a "high-power rifle.") Not more than a couple of hours later the report said that he had a pair of ".45 caliber handguns." I wonder what he will have next?

    Have not heard of this story yet but I believe it... media always plays out people with guns/hunters to be a lot worst than what it really is to grab the attention of the audience. Next thing he will have is a couple of grenades and a .50 cal sniper rifle.... and oh yeh, he will be a hunter. Let me ask you, when is the last time you heard something in the news that talks about how hunters are natural conservationists or the funds we raise for the environment or even the organizations such as "Hunters for the Hungry"? Rarely if ever does the media put stories like that in the news.

      With all the media hounds clamoring to get the scoop first, they believe/report everything they hear. The real story never comes out until weeks later.

          I was up in Central New York when it happened and it was all over the news. I just clicked it off until later that night. I knew there would be so much speculation and every channel said something different.

            A friend of mine was in Binghamton a block and a half away when they imposed the police cordon. He said it was 2 pistols, I'm just glad he stayed clear.

              hjohn, I heard the same initial reports you did. Of course the media got it wrong. It is a sad and regrettable event though.

                Yes, I heard all that. I also know that the "9-1-1 operator" acts as an intermediary between the caller and the responders.
