Or not.

From Deadspin:

Conservative websites are up in arms this week over the Obama administration's new plan to outlaw recreational fishing in America. It's an egregious abuse of executive power, slightly mitigated by the fact that it's not remotely close to being true.

It all starts with an opinion piece written by Robert Montgomery for ESPN Outdoors, that opens with this ominous sentence: "The Obama administration will accept no more public input for a federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing some of the nation's oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters." Which almost immediate led to this headline on the website Gateway Pundit:

MediaMatters:

I know some folks will hem and haw about how Media Matters is absolutely worse than Hitler, but they have quite a few links to some of the sites that are "up in arms" about how the Obama administration is obviously out to destroy recreational fishing in America, including the usual suspects like RedState and Michelle Malkin.

The point is, one blogger read an announcement like "the comment period for a report on coastal marine planning has ended" and decided that it might mean Obama "wants to ban sport fishing." Then, a bunch of other people read this one idiot's supreme speculation and took it as gospel.

People, can't we just have some common sense?
