Sarah Palin Considering Suing New York Times for Libel - From Breitbart
by Tony Lee15 Jun 20170 Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is considering suing the New York Times for libel after the Times published a Wednesday editorial falsely accusing her of inciting Jared Lee Loughner to shoot Rep.
In addition, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary (Hodgkinson asked at least two Representatives whether the players on the baseball diamond were Republicans or Democrats before he started shooting), the Times added that “there’s no sign of incitement as direct as in the Giffords attack” As Breitbart Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak pointed out, “the Times‘ false equivalence between the two shootings provides a sick excuse for what Hodgkinson did by making it appear to be partially Republicans’ fault.
In any event, authorities definitively concluded that Loughner was “in no way influenced by Tea Partiers, conservative media, or Palin.” After the Giffords shooting, Zach Osler, Loughner’s friend, told ABC that Loughner was apolitical and did not even watch television.
As the left-wing outlet noted: The Times‘ editorial was so outrageous and egregious that even mainstream media journalists, some of Palin’s most vicious haters on the right, and those on the left like Chris Hayes agreed that the Times had to issue a correction.
In fact, no such link was established.” Big Journalism, blood libel, Gabby Giffords, libel, New York Times, Sarah Palin, Steve Scalise
