MRC's Bozell: NY Times Should 'Apologize' For 'Cheap, Political' Editorial

Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell is 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," Bozell said in a statement.

"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,” Bozell continued.

The New York Times has since added an online correction to the piece.

An earlier version of this editorial incorrectly stated that a link existed between political incitement and the 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords. In fact, no such link was established.

At the time of this publication no apology has been issued by the New York Times.
