  • Vox Uses Hilariously Inaccurate Photo On NRA Hit Piece

    Vox attached the logo of a New Deal agency to an NRA hit piece on Twitter Thursday, apparently confusing the National Rifle Association with the National Recovery Administration established by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933.

    “The NRA’s president supported ‘sharply restricting’ guns in 1934,” Vox tweeted, with a photo of the National Recovery Administration logo attached. “Then things changed.” The story the tweet linked to was of course referring to the National Rifle Association.

    “Journalism is dead,” remarked one twitter user who saved the tweet before it was deleted.

    Vox, whose tagline is “Explain the news,” did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    In response to one user who tweeted: “That’s not the National Rifle Association dude,” Vox tweeted: “We’ve corrected the error. Sorry about the confusion.”

    @RobProvince We’ve corrected the error. Sorry about the confusion.
