New York Times Spread False Narrative in Op-Ed, Apologized Later

The New York Times blamed the shooting of former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords on Sarah Palin and an affiliated PAC in an op-ed this week [1], equating that with the shooting of Representative Steve Scalise by a liberal, Bernie Sanders-supporting gunman.

The paper later issued a correction to the story, saying that their Palin-Giffords connection was unproven. Still, the damage was done and the liberal narrative against Palin and the Republicans continues to rear its ugly head.
