CNN Stars Admired by L.A. Murder Suspect Falsely Linked Palin to Tucson Killings
Currently there's a murder spree unfolding in and around the city of Los Angeles. The suspect, Chris Dorner, is a fired Los Angeles police officer who reportedly left a manifesto behind. In it, he expresses his admiration for many members of the elite media, including some of CNN's highest profile anchors: Soledad O'Brien, Piers Morgan, Anderson Cooper & Wolf Blitzer.
Here's a CNN article attempting to link Sarah Palin to the Gabby Giffords shooting in Tucson:
As of Saturday, Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' name appeared on a website titled "take back the 20" as part of a list originally issued by Sarah Palin of vulnerable House Democrats. A map on the site showed crosshairs over the contested Democratic districts.
Palin first posted the list in March 2010, naming 20 House members who voted for health care reform and represented districts that Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona won in the 2008 presidential election.
Here's Wolf Blitzer and two other CNN analysts discussing the possibility that Palin's rhetoric might have inspired Loughner to commit violence -- even as they claim there's no evidence:
Just a few months ago, Piers Morgan expressed outrage over the fact Palin had never called to apologize to Giffords.
There has never been a single piece of evidence linking anything Palin has ever written or said to Jared Loughner -- not even a manifesto like the one that names some of CNN's biggest stars … by name.
