|I just remembered something else I've been pissed off about for years.|
Another epitome in media double standards, in my opinion: A schizophrenic shoots an Arizona representative and the media goes berserk blaming me for the crime. That year's SarahPAC electoral map had included a "target" icon, and media erroneously claimed it somehow spurred on the criminal. https://www.facebook.com/notes/sarah-palin/dont-get-demoralized-get-organized-take-back-the-20/373854973434/ (This links to the 2010 Facebook post that preceded Gabby Giffords being shot.)
The attack on the Arizona politician and innocent bystanders was beyond horrific, and many of us continue to lift up in prayer those who are affected by any unwarranted violence, as the nation witnessed that day in Tucson. Also unwarranted is the blame game liberals capitalized on then, as they continue to do today.
Back then, unable to defend myself with the obvious message that I had nothing to do with the shooting, and wanting to remind the media that using target icons in graphics is used universally by democrats and liberal media (including the liberal "Crossfire" news program), I finally disobeyed my employer's directive (FOX News) to stay silent about the false accusations. Days after the tragedy I made my own video to post a defense, hoping to help exonerate ALL who are falsely accused. http://abcnews.go.com/…/sarah-palin-gabrielle-giffor…/story… (This links to the jaw dropping "Blood Libel" video that essentially destroyed all of Palin's future political aspirations. For some reason she wants you to watch it again.)
The apoplectic media pinning me for the crime caused turmoil and threats that are inexplicable, stretching still to this day. I say this not to claim any sort of victimization, but to point out the power the media has to try to destroy someone's career, reputation and spirit, by employing its common double standards. http://www.breitbart.com/…/remember-when-the-gabrielle-gif…/ (This links to a Breitbart article that is almost four years old. I swear I'm getting whiplash here.)
This morning on MSNBC the liberal media once again features their "target" icon in their political graphics. And all is well in the lamestream media. Let's hear it for consistency... http://conservatives4palin.com/…/cnn-puts-sarah-palin-cross…
- Sarah Palin
Okay the link at the end of her rant goes, not to a recent example of CNN using a target icon, but to a 2014 Sea O'Pee post falsely accusing CNN of using a "target" icon.
This is what they use to support that claim.
As you probably know CNN has a wall filled with screens that often show a number of breaking stories.
When they need to make an image larger they expand it over more than one screen which provides an image like this.
Now I have to admit that I was racking my brain to figure out what could have triggered this outburst from Palin.
And then I remembered this story from last week.
Now for some reason Palin herself does not mention this poster, but since it caused news agencies all over the internet to reference her target icons it was most likely what triggered this latest psychotic break.
You know, a week later.
Boy it must be a real joy to live in the same house with this lunatic.
