Tribune’s Editorial Policy in Summary: No Liberal Agenda, Just Regrettable Because We Get Basic Facts Wrong
From the Chicago Tribune
Some readers seized this opportunity to accuse us of using this graphic to promote what they termed a specific liberal agenda on the topic of gun control. They saw our labeling mistake as a deliberate misrepresentation, one that made these weapons seem more dangerous. Let me say emphatically that this was a careless mistake, not an intentional deception nor bias. It is regrettable because we got a basic fact wrong, period.
