How Left-Wing Media Overstates Number Of ‘Mass Shootings’ By Factor Of 10

A database regularly cited by liberal media outlets overstates the number of “mass shootings” by a factor of 10, according to analysis by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The website “Mass Shooting Tracker” (MST) has been regularly used by news outlets, like The Washington Post and PBS, to claim “mass shootings” occur much more frequently than they actually do. MST uses an alternative definition of “mass shooting” that greatly overstates their frequency relative to the commonly-accepted definition used by law enforcement and academics.

MST openly acknowledges it uses the alternate definition to “punch a hole in the NRA argument.” NRA refers to the National Rifle Association, the country’s largest gun lobby.

MST’s defines a mass shooting as any shooting where four or more people are injured or killed, not counting the shooter. This isn’t an official definition taken from law enforcement or academia, but appears to be originally created by anti-gun activists on Reddit.

    The vast majority of the media long ago (decades ago) stopped reporting the news; all they do now is make stuff up as they go along to further the Leftist (communist) agenda which they support. If it weren’t for fake news they wqoudl have no news at all.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Sorry MST and the other clowns, there were more mass shooting under Obama’s watch than any other President, just another one of his many first, such a loser! Thank God the POS is gone!!

      Will these PRESSTITUTES report which are the REPUBLIC worse Enemies??
      My rankings are
      1) Soros and his Anarchists paid Activists
      2) His Paid Agitators of Chuck the Clown in the Senate and Pelosi’s Pigs of the House ( Maxi comes to mind as the SOW)
      3) What is left at State, DoD, DOJ , Irs and Epa from the O Serraglio of Traitors
      4) Iran and ISIS
      5) Russia

      BUT MSM PRESSTITUTES will rather Concentrate on glorifying the HATE of tHE LEFT as “The Amatican Freedom fighters” ( not a joke)

    We cannot believe anything that comes out of the media. Nothing. The tiny part of the media that does tell the truth is so overwhelmed by the lies from the rest of it we cannot trust it either. And guess what. The media know it. They count on it.
