I’ve always suspected that very few people actually read the editorials written by Randy Schultz, Editorial Page editor of The Palm Beach Post, and after his recent amateurish mistake, I’m certain of it.
That Schultz would publish an anti-gun screed so soon after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings was a given.
Forget taking advantage of a national tragedy to push a political agenda. That’s what we’ve all come to expect of the left, and we’re never disappointed.
Let’s also put aside that Schultz bizarrely drags into his editorial his favorite target, newly elected Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg.
Wait, on second thought, let’s not forget it.
Because maybe if Schultz wasn’t so intent on taking yet another shot at Aronberg, he wouldn’t have gotten the name of the school shooter wrong.
After the assault weapons ban, manufacturers got around it by making small design changes. Ryan Lanza may not have bought the weapons he used in Newtown.
Just about every person in the world who can read knows the school shooter was Adam Lanza, not his brother, Ryan.
Did Schultz write this on Friday, when most of mainstream media’s “journalists” incorrectly identified Ryan as the shooter, and then take off for the weekend?
Maybe, but that doesn’t explain why, as of late Monday afternoon, this horrible error still hadn’t been corrected.
Didn’t even one reader spot the mistake and email The Post about it? As of 3:10 p.m. Monday, there were seven comments on Schultz’s editorial online, all about gun control, but no one noticed the wrong shooter had been named.
Kind of makes me think very few actually read it.
If Schultz falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear, does he make a noise?

Update 8:27 pm: The Post finally corrected Schultz’s ridiculous editorial. FYI, most of the Post writers are regular readers of BizPac Review.
Here’s the screen cap of the first year journalism student error that the Post was obviously not capable of correcting on it’s own.
