Media Distortions

Propaganda 101

Hot Air - props

I love that the media distorts this stuff like a fifth-grader. But they give article time to anti-americans, because the media is generally anti-American, or anti-military.

Now read the caption:

The only way those two bullets hit anything is if someone threw them or launched them from a slingshot. They’re still pristine, still in their shells. And whoever wrote the caption obviously doesn’t know enough about firearms to know that. Either that, or as the tipster who sent this to me says, they’re actively helping create negative media stories against the US.
