One day after a leftwing shooter tried to assassinate as many GOP members practing at a baseball field as he could, and leaving Rep. Scalise still in critical condition, and the NYT has absolutely nothing on their homepage today about the incident.
Think about that. Imagine if the political leanings of the shooter and victims were reversed.
You’d almost think MSM outlets like the NYT and WaPo (whom Rush talked about today) want to have this story go away as quickly as possible, so they can get back to “Russia! Russia! Russia!” and now “Obstruction! Obstruction! Obstruction!”.
The NYT also gets called out for their astonishing fake news lie – by their godlike, nameless, faceless, ‘Editorial Board’ editorial no less. They issue a one sentence retraction but no apology:
The New York Times has published an editor’s note correcting an editorial that linked the 2011 shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords in Tucson, Ariz., to a fund-raising email by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. The editorial drew complaints from many conservatives and from Palin herself, who hinted she might explore legal action against the newspaper.
“An earlier version of this editorial incorrectly stated that a link existed between political incitement and the 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords,” the note reads in its entirety. “In fact, no such link was established.”
The Times did not offer an apology.
The editorial, published Wednesday, had drawn a distinction between the assault on Giffords and the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four others at a Republican congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., earlier in the day. The Times’ editorial board said that while Wednesday’s attack by a left-wing activist was “probably” motivated by divisive political rhetoric, there was a “clear” link in Giffords’ case.
“In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear,” the editorial said. “Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.”
Stay classy, NYT!
