The media really is clueless about guns

From: as initially presented
The Associated Press reports on the Obama gun photo.

But someone needs to tell the AP that shotgun and rifle are not synonymous.

Update: The New York Times apparently made the same mistake in its intitial tell of the the story, but then offered a formal correction:
This article has been revised to reflect the following correction: 
Correction: February 2, 2013 
An earlier version of this article misstated the type of weapon that President Obama fired in a photo released Saturday by the White House. It was a shotgun, not a rifle.
