Virginian Pilot Editors

I really have to wonder if the Virginian Pilot editors really know what their job is. Take this article for example. I will copy the entire article here in case they remove it from their site.

POLICE SAY COLLEGE PARK DOUBLE SHOOTING MAY BE GANG RELATED

VIRGINIA BEACH

Police are investigating a shooting in the College Park area that they believe may have been gang related.

Around 8:15 p.m., police responsed to the intersection of College Park Boulevard and Edenham Court, said police spokeswoman Rene Ball. Ball said police discovered one shooting victim at the scene, suffering from superficial views. The victim was transported to a local hospital.

A second shooting victim was subsequently discovered at another local hospital.

Ball said neither victim was cooperative with police. However, she said a white Ford Escort was tied to the crime scene. Police stopped a vehicle matching the description a short time later.

Three people in the car were taken into custody, Ball said, and she said two will be charged with malicious wounding. Ball said one is a juvenile, one an adult.

Ball said the shooting is "possibly gang related."

Notice anything wrong? I want to know how the men were "suffering from [their] superficial views." Did they just get the wrong ideas?

LMAO! Great catch!

You have heard the statistic that just since Jan08, over 8000 journalists nationwide have been "laid off"?

Soon, you and I and other "citizen journalists" like us will be the only remaining writers of news.

Which scares me on so many levels? like who is fact-checking? who is editing? where is the fair-and-balanced?
