Appearing on “Meet the Press” Easter morning, the mayor of Newark mourned the “thousands of murders” occurring each day across the United States, caused by gun-toting criminals. A short time after the show he reduced that to “hundreds” per day. In fact, the number is 30. So from thousands to 30 in one short morning? Mayor Bloomberg would be proud. Too bad the interlocutors of the press are too clueless about any subject to know when to challenge a guest’s most outlandish claims.
