Not So Great Britain

ABC News: VT Killer ‘Purchased Ammo’ on Ebay… But Ebay Doesn’t SELL Ammunition! | April 25, 2007

ABC News tries its hand at sensationalism with a story on the VT killer buying “ammo” on the auction site Ebay, but muffs it badly getting all the relevant facts wrong. But it sure is a good headline.

Problem is, Ebay doesn’t sell ammunition… it doesn’t even sell guns. What the VT killer bought were clips (magazines), not “ammo”– if it was even him .

Will ABC News correct itself? Will ABC News admit it was not only misinformed on an easily checked issue, but acted with tabloid journalism to boot?
