NY Times infuriates just about everyone for reviving debunked Palin, Giffords story in response to Alexandria

In true biased form, the New York Times managed to take the attempted murder of more than 20 Republican Congressmen by a supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders and use it to take a shot at Republicans themselves.

The Times’ editorial board featured an op-ed on Wednesday that went back to the 2011 shooting of Democrat Rep. Gabby Giffords and a long debunked conspiracy theory involving former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

“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. 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,” they wrote.

“Though there’s no sign of incitement as direct as in the Giffords attack, liberals should of course hold themselves to the same standard of decency that they ask of the right,” the editors said.

But there was no direct incitement, despite how badly the Times wants to pin something on Republicans in their moment of tragedy.

As CNN’s Jake Tapper pointed out on social media in response to the op-ed, the schizophrenic shooter, Jared Loughner, was obsessing about Giffords for years before Palin’s map came out.

And there is no evidence that Loughner ever saw the map or was inspired by it.

The Times’ blatant bias was fodder for others on social media to call them out.

Even the editor of the far left publication Mother Jones smashed the Times.
