Defining The Narrative?

Has storytelling become pre-programmed to present a specific perspective?

A terrible thing happened in Oklahoma on Saturday.

And a curious thing happened in Traverse City Michigan the next day.  The local paper, often cited for its liberal leanings presented a distorted view of the tragedy that occurred October 24, 2015.  The story was pre-programmed accurately for the newspaper outlet, but somewhere in the editorial process, a bit of Freudian process has emerged perhaps?

One should think that the picture above from the hometown paper is a curious thing to see in the hyperactive anti-gun atmosphere of mass media.  Of course, a retraction has already been issued by the Traverse City Record Eagle.
