"WHY PEOPLE HATE THE MEDIA, CHAPTER MDCXIII: “The Washington Post built an entire story around this — a story that blames right-wing talk radio for a left-wing crackpot opening fire on a baseball field full of Republicans, because they are Republicans.
Let that sink in: the Washington Post blames right-wing talk radio for a left-winger’s assassination attempt on Republican politicians…
These people are so lost in their anti-conservative bigotry that they can’t tell up from down or right from wrong.”
As Michael Dougherty of National Review tweets in response to the Post’s fiction, “Alexandria as the new Dallas. So filled with right wing hate it makes socialists kill.”
Hey, that strategy worked remarkably well as a deflection point for the left in 1963; less so in 2011 – but hey, might as well break out the old playbook one more time, huh?"
