When a newspaper prints something you expect it to be true because that's thier job. Nowadays that isn't really the case in most of the media (as shown in the links below these extracts). This post specifically focuses on the Washington Post. All extracts are from the professional media researchers at Media Matters.org .

Media Matters: Wash. Post overstates the NRA’s ability to influence legislation and elections To explain the Virginia legislature's refusal to take up gun safety initiatives, look to racist GOP gerrymandering, not NRA power - undeservedly credited the National Rifle Association with blocking a package of gun safety proposals in the Virginia General Assembly to set up a contrast with the massive turmoil the gun group is currently experiencing.
