Gabrielle Giffords - #2544 - The Media and The Shooter - Redstate (2) Dems, Media Blame Tea Party, Palin for Shooting; Shooter Linked to Left Wing Politics - Newsmax (3) Hared Lee Loughner, Suspect in Gabrielle Giffords Shooting, Had College Run-ins - AZ Central (4) Sheriff in Giffords Shooting a Hero to Liberals - Newsmax

This morning we pray for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, her family, and the other victims of the heinous violence in Arizona. It should not be, but the media, under the guise of “a full exposition” of the evil in Arizona, is back to subtly and not so subtly pinning the blame for the attempted assassination of the Congresswoman and the related shootings on the tea party movement, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, me, you, and everyone right of center. Let’s be crystal clear: this is the supposedly objective news media doing this, not the openly, partisan left, though it is fueling the media witch hunt. And from what we now know, it is not just media malpractice, but a lie. Read more.......  Article contributed by Steve Peters.

Dems, Media Blame Tea Party, Palin for Shooting; Shooter Linked to Left Wing Politics - Newsmax - As U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords fights for her life after a mad gunman shot her on Saturday, some Democrats and major media have moved to pin the blame for her attack on the tea party movement and conservatives like Sarah Palin, despite the fact that the shooter was both deranged and fascinated by leftwing politics.  Giffords' Democratic colleague, Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva, told Mother Jones magazine within hours after the rampage that the “political tone and tenor” created by Palin and the tea party movement had set the stage for the shooting.  Grijalva said Palin's “apparatus” had put Giffords' and his own life at risk.  “Both Gabby and I were targeted in the apparatus in that cycle [saying] these people are ‘enemies.’” He added: “The Palin express better look at their tone and their tenor.”  Read more.........  Article contributed by Steve Peters.

Jared Lee Loughner, Suspect Suspect in Gabrielle Giffords Shooting, Had College Run-ins- AZ Central - The 22-year-old suspect in the shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others north of Tucson on Saturday was described by friends and former classmates as a loner, prone to dressing in black regalia of boots, trench coat and baggy pants even on the hottest days.  Jared Loughner, who dropped out of Tucson's Mountain View High School in his senior year, was rejected for enlistment in the U.S. Army and got kicked out of Pima Community College last year.  Tyler Ramsier, who attended Mountain View with Loughner in 2005, called him a "hater." He was a goth-type," Ramsier said. "He was more of an outcast. I just saw him passing in the halls."  Loughner, who lives with his mother in a modest north Tucson subdivision, had no significant police record and had been cited once on a minor drug charge that was later dismissed, court records show.  Read more........  Article contributed by Steve Peters.

Sheriff in Giffords Shooting a Hero to Liberals - Newsmax - Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik has become "an instant hero to liberals" in the aftermath of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' shooting in Tucson, Ariz. Writing for AOLNews.com, Arpaio is the tough, no-nonsense sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona. He is nationally known for housing inmates in tent cities, making them wear pink clothing and refusing to give them luxuries behind bars.  But Dupnik has cheered liberals with his comments at a news conference Saturday, in which he insinuated that heated political rhetoric may have been a key factor in the bloodbath, writes Stone.  "When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous," Dupnik said.  Dupnik also has harshly criticized Arizona's crackdown on illegal immigration, calling Arizona's law a "national embarrassment."
