Media misfire? Columbia J-school, Bloomberg Unite to teach g

I suppose it would be too much to expect that the Columbia J-Schoolers might simply be taught to produce an intelligible news story.  Perhaps learn the difference between a "magazine" and a "clip."  Understand that the "assault weapon"  and the "Saturday Night Special" are constructs of the news media.  That (evil) "high-capacity" magazines have been around since the 1920s.  But, most of all taught basic grammar so as to avoid little journalistic gems such as "the victim was shot in the fracas."   See:  http://http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/03/31/media-misfire-vaunted-journalism-school-pairs-with-bloomberg-to-teach-gun/
