In September of 2009 the website MomLogic posted a piece: Gun Accidents Kill 500 Kids Each Year. The gunblogosphere found it in May of 2010, courtesy of Damnum Absque Injuria. Apparently a couple of
propagandists journalists at the Denver Post recently discovered it, and took it as Gospel. Instapundit links to the blog Free Colorado where – professional journalist – Ari Armstrong did to the Denver Post writers what I did to the MomLogic column, only he went directly to the authors of the piece. (I know I left a detailed comment there, but it’s gone now.)
At least he got a retraction out of the Post. I still haven’t seen Salon retract their much more outrageous “statistic” of 4,000 deaths a year.
And they keep telling us that the professionals have all these layers of editorial oversight, which is what makes them better than bloggers.
