Vice on Guns
A good example of Vice's incompetent bias is this article on How California Gun Laws may have saved lives in the YouTube Shooting. They use the us the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence "study" to prove their point. But that propaganda mill doesn't produce studies, it produces bad jokes that anyone with any journalistic credibility would never let grace their pages or airwaves. And their own additions to that crap-sandwhich, only made it worse:
- they use bad studies to prove their point in visually appealing ways (pretty garbage sells to their audience)
- they don't have any competent fact checkers or standards, or this wouldn't have run without at least some caveats
- there's absolutely zero evidence presented that California's gun laws actually helped.
- none of that study showed that the using a pistol is less effective than an assault rifle in close quarters. (Most with a clue, know that is laughable). So even the points they made, were off-topic.
For their readers, bullshit sells. But for the rest of us? It screams: discredited propaganda, from dishonest or incompetent sources.
