CBS News is a news and information division of CBS Corporation, who claims to provide the highest quality journalism under standards it pioneered and continues to set daily.
CBS was established in 1928, by founder Willian Paley, with now more than 200 television stations and affiliates reaching virtually every home in the US.
With as much reach as this station has, you would think they could provide accurate information about the Las Vegas shooting.
Unfortunately, this is not the case!
CBS recently made up a phony description to depict the weapon used during the most violent mass shooting of our United States history.
According to the dailywire:
CBS made up a bogus term to describe the ammunition that was used by the Las Vegas shooter during the rampage – calling the ammunition he used “automatic rounds.”
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) confirmed to the Daily Wire that there is no such thing as “automatic rounds,” which contradicts CBS’s claim about ATF rules.
CBS tweeted a link to their report, saying, “While the guns Stephen Paddock used in Las Vegas fired automatic rounds, they were perfectly legal under ATF rules.”
“Yet while the guns that Stephen Paddock used to shoot more than 500 people in Las Vegas fired automatic rounds, they were perfectly legal, according to rules established by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF),” the CBS report falsely stated.
CBS later updated their report but they failed to mention their correction anywhere in the article.
2nd Amendment advocates slammed the liberal network for their bogus “automatic rounds” claim over social media:
