Default When CNN can't back you, you know you are SOL

Recently a map has been making the rounds online showing the apparent 74 school shootings to have happened since Newtown. Published by Everytown, CNN did a review of it and basically called it bogus. Only 15 of the shootings were legitimate in that they weren't gang related, spouses of faculty, drug related, self defense situations, police negligence, etc... When even CNN says "Mmmm not so fast", you know you don't have a leg to stand on.

Charles Johnson, a freelance journalist, first began looking into the shooting incidents cited by Everytown for Gun Safety. After cross-referencing all of the incidents listed by Everytown with local news reports, he claimed that only seven of the 74 shootings were what he would consider classical cases of school shootings similar to the one at Sandy Hook or Tuesday’s incident in Oregon.

Bloomberg has never let the truth get in his way.

The "half-truth" is the most insidious lie.
