    Re: President Obama takes the stage at VFW convention in Phoenix

    This whole thread is amusing in an odd way. Report on president Obama in Phoenix at a VFW convention, a guy is outside with 2 guns, and we have 30 posts over the classification of one of the guns. How totally trivial.

    A reporter not knowing what he's reporting isnt trivial, especially when it is systemic.

    He is reporting on the president meeting with vets at a VFW. What is he ignorant of on that topic? The gun nut in the article barely rated a mention, and is certainly not the topic the reporter is covering.

    Red herring.
    The point is that he made a factual error in his reporting.
    You may not care, but only because it is situationally convenient for you to do so.

    I'm sorry?

    He made a trivial error. An error that about .0000000000001 % of the country would actually care about, and does not effect the meaning of any of his reporting.

    The issue here is the use of dysphemisms. Similiar to the abortion debate, its inaccurate and often perpetuated by dishonest people who call pro-choicers "baby-killers" or the pro-choicers calling pro-lifers "misogynists".

    If you cared about the abortion debate and heard a news reporter refer to you as a "baby killer" or a "misogynist" then the ignorance or intentional bias of the reporter might bother you. The same is true for the gun debate where dishonest terms such as "assult rifle" and "cop killer" and "gun violence" are used.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    What did I say?
    Oh, yes:
    You may not care, but only because it is situationally convenient for you to do so.
    Am I surprised that I am right?
    No.

    Thank you for putting it in terms the libs might be able to understand.
