NYT: Watch President Obama Shoot his Skeet ‘Rifle’



Text  



An epic correction from the “paper of record” on their article detailing the president’s newly discovered skeet shooting hobby.

Correction: February 2, 2013

An earlier version of this article misstated the type of weapon that President Obama fired in a photo released Saturday by the White House. It was a shotgun, not a rifle.

Here’s the now infamous picture that’s gone viral. One question: if POTUS is shooting skeet, why’s he aiming so low? 

Be vewy, vewy quiet. I’m hunting a strawman!

If the Times’s author, let alone the editors, don’t know the difference between a shotgun and a rifle, how can they possibly understand assault weapon vs. assault rifle, or blunderbuss vs. assault rifle for that matter? They don’t know what it is, but they want it banned.
