New York Times Editorial fails the Scalise tragedy. @MonaCharenEppC @MaryKissel @WsjOpinion

"...The New York Times editorial board the following morning gave a nod toward civility by acknowledging that conservatives and “right wing media” were “right to demand forceful condemnation of hate speech and crimes by anti-Trump liberals.” But then they tainted their momentary lapse into fairness with a false debating point that Jared Lee Loughner, who shot Rep. Gabby Giffords, was more incited by Sarah Palin than James Hodgkinson had been by his diet of political extremism. Actually, there is no evidence that the mentally ill Loughner had ever been influenced by Palin’s “target map” of districts, and by recycling this bit of left-wing agitprop, the New York Times contributes to the very extremism it is purporting to condemn. So does every right-wing outlet that feeds the narrative of “civil war” and catastrophism that has characterized some Trump partisans. (The Times later altered the wording slightly — but not enough to erase the implication that Palin was somehow responsible for Loughner’s attack.) ..."
