Reporter fail

Quote
A few hours later, Maxon sent the newspaper a lengthy statement, the key part being: “it was uncovered that Mr. Steinberg has an admitted history of alcohol abuse, and a charge for domestic battery involving his wife.

Well, didn’t see that coming. Were that same standard applied to the American public, there would be a whole lot fewer guns sold. Beside, they knew I planned to immediately sell it back to them.

OK, Maxon has had its chance to offer their reason.

Now I’ll state what I believe the real reason is: Gun manufacturers and the stores that sell them make their money in the dark. Congress, which has so much trouble passing the most basic gun laws, passed a law making it illegal for the federal government to fund research into gun violence. Except for the week or two after massacres, the public covers its eyes. Would-be terrorists can buy guns. Insane people can buy guns. But reporters . . . that’s a different story. Gun makers avoid publicity because the truth is this: they sell tools of death to frightened people and make a fortune doing so. They shun attention because they know, if we saw clearly what is happening in our country, we’d demand change.

The stupid is strong in this one.

Chitcago-suntimes - Another gutless lying rag that is too cowardly to allow comments. They know that with as many distortions, exaggeration, and outright lies the public would ream them do they publish their crap and slink off into the darkness.

I think he could probably write a better story on drunken wife beaters.

Even if wasn't a wife beater and drunk,  they still had a right and duty to not sell to him.   Why?   It could be seen as a straw sale.   As he was buying for the Sun-Times not himself.  They were un-doubtably paying for it.

This "reporter" has a long history of being a d-bag.
