Liberal reporters--that term is for the most part a redundancy, but stick with me here--take their lead from the New York Times, but usually not as blatantly as in this instance involving the Kansas City Star's Mary Sanchez. In her latest column she references a New York Slimes article about what that author deems as Missouri's lax gun laws and how that has led to a spike in murders in the state's largest city.
Sanchez is already in Kansas City. What the heck does she need the Times for?
Oh, the words "personal responsibility" are missing from the KC Star piece from Sanchez. I didn't find them in the Times article either.
