New York Times Apologizes for Article Rehashing False Claims against Palin

Jun 16, 2017

Over six years ago when Representative Gabby Giffords was shot in an attempted assassination many in the media tried to blame the shooting that left Gifford wounded and others dead and wounded on Sarah Palin. The claim was that the posting of a target on the internet on Giffords Congressional District Palin has instigated the attack.

This theory quickly fell apart when it was pointed out that Palin was putting targets on the maps of Congressional Districts with vulnerable Democrats not on the faces of individuals. It was also found that the shooter had been stalking Giffords for months and was actually a Democrat. That did not stop the Times from running the same story the day after the Scalise shooting and then apologizing or it. The newspaper seems to be apologizing a lot lately.
