Is MTV News More Accurate Than the AP? Yup!

This past Sunday, the Associated Press reported that illegal gun purchasing rapper T.I. would only have to serve 2 months in prison instead of the 1 year and 1 day he was sentenced to, claiming that 305 days of house arrest would go towards his term, but they got the story wrong. And shockingly, it was MTV News that corrected them. In reality, T.I. will have to do a minimum of 10 months and might be able to “shave almost 55 days off his sentence” for good behavior. Apparently they didn’t read the report correctly: “Once T.I. completes the prison term, he will still have to serve out the remainder of his home confinement” which amounts to about 2 months. |Miss Info|
