We know from past embarrassments that when some journos reporting about guns can result in some pitiful results. The latest case-in-point was a photo attached to this now deleted tweet:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Former NYT journo used a photo of a gun that was far different from what he said it was:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The deletion came after Roberts was informed something was wrong with his tweet:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Predictably, Roberts seemed to take a “what’s the difference, both of them kill” approach after he was called on the error:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Highly trained “journalists” are always incredibly concerned with total accuracy… unless they aren’t:

Amazing:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

“Journalists” who don’t think it matters need to remind themselves of something:

Ding! Ding! Ding!
