MRC’s Brent Bozell Slams Reckless, Error-Filled New York Times Editorial on Attempted GOP Massacre

June 15th, 2017 11:22 AM

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Thursday issued the following statement blasting the New York Times Editorial Board for their intentionally fallacious editorial on the Alexandria shooting.

“The New York Times Editorial Board should be embarrassed by the flaming pile of garbage they published today.  Even in the face of a radical leftist's attempted assassination of numerous members of Congress, they try to find a way to cast blame on... conservatives! Their editorial perpetuates a long-debunked leftist conspiracy theory about Gov. Sarah Palin inciting the Giffords shooting. They know better. The New York Times' own news reporters declared just yesterday that there was no evidence linking Palin to the Giffords shooting!
“If the New York Times Editorial Board is going to declare that one cannot place blame on Sen. Sanders for the Alexandria shooting, they must apologize to Gov. Palin for dragging her name through the mud to score cheap political points.”

UPDATE: The Times issued a correction of sorts, but no apology.
