“Today, Sarah Palin took a stand against The New York Times Company by filing a lawsuit which seeks to hold The Times accountable for stating that Governor Palin is part of a ‘sickeningly familiar pattern’ of politically motivated violence and that she incited the horrific 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords, a tragedy where the gunman seriously wounded numerous people and killed 6, including a federal judge and a 9-year-old girl,” Palin’s lawyers—Ken Turkel, Shane Vogt, and S. Preston Ricardo—said in a statement.
The New York Times knows it’s a lie that Palin incited the Giffords shooting, but they don’t care. The Washington Post still has writers spreading that filth too.

They are only interesting in demonizing the political right. Just like liberals attacked Rep. Scalise, Republicans, and the NRA immediately after yesterday’s shooting.
