    Full title: Gregg Jarrett: Sarah Palin vs. the New York Times -- Five reasons why ex-governor might just win her caseSarah Palin is suing the New York Times, the once-storied newspaper that still brags it publishes “all the news that’s fit to print.” It does not. Palin correctly accuses the Times of defamation by blaming her in an editorial for the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six people. Specifically, editorialists claimed Palin’s political action committee incited the violence. The Times asserted the cause or link was “clear” and “direct.” Such a link has never been established,...

    Former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin filed a lawsuit against the New York Times Tuesday over an editorial that tied her to the January 2011 shooting of an Arizona congresswoman. Palin's attorneys claim that the paper defamed her in the June 14 editorial, published hours after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was shot and wounded while practicing with the GOP's baseball team in Alexandria, Va. The editorial, attributed to the Times' editorial board and titled "America's Lethal Politics," initially linked Palin's rhetoric to the shooting that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including then-Rep. Gabrielle...
  • Sarah Palin Suing New York Times For Defamation

    06/27/2017 3:47:13 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 74 replies
    Sarah Palin is suing the New York Times for defamation, according to documents filed on Tuesday obtained by The Daily Caller. The lawsuit has to do with an editorial the NYT ran on June 14 that falsely smeared Palin as inciting the 2011 shooting of Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords by a mentally ill man who had been obsessed with Giffords for years. There is no evidence to support the NYT’s implication that Palin played a role in inciting the Giffords shooting. “Mrs. Palin brings this action to hold The Times accountable for defaming her by publishing a statement about her...

    It was springtime in the US.  The most recent unemployment number was 5.0%, a slight tic down from the previous month and in line with the previous 12-month, fairly low, average of 4.8%.  We were in a quarter of positive real economic growth, a 2.8% annual rate, following a previous quarter of positive growth.  On May 19, the S&P 500 hit 1427, the highest point since January 3 and essentially where it ended the previous year. On the foreign front, the surge in Iraq was clearly bearing fruit.  The number of US military deaths in Iraq in May was the...
  • NYT issues correction to editorial linking Giffords shooting to Palin

    06/15/2017 2:55:53 PM PDT · by bryan999 · 11 replies
    The New York Times has published an editor’s note correcting an editorial that linked the 2011 shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords in Tucson, Ariz., to a fund-raising email by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. The editorial drew complaints from many conservatives and from Palin herself, who hinted she might explore legal action against the newspaper. “An earlier version of this editorial incorrectly stated that a link existed between political incitement and the 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords,” the note reads in its entirety. “In fact, no such link was established.” The Times did not offer an apology.

    The New York Times corrected an editorial on the GOP baseball shooting Thursday that baselessly accused Sarah Palin of inciting the 2011 shooting of Gabby Giffords. “An earlier version of this editorial incorrectly stated that a link existed between political incitement and the 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords,” the correction reads. “In fact, no such link was established.” The editorial initially stated there was a “clear link” from Palin’s rhetoric to Giffords’ shooting, as a means of justifying the board’s decision not to place the same kind of blame on Democrats for the baseball shooting.

    BERNIE SANDERS WAS QUICK TO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM HIS FORMER CAMPAIGN VOLUNTEER WHO SHOT REP. STEVE SCALISE (R-LA) AND THREE OTHERS AT A PARK WEDNESDAY. HOWEVER, WHEN A SHOOTING INVOLVING A DEMOCRATIC MEMBER OF CONGRESS OCCURRED IN 2011, SANDERS WAS QUICK TO BLAME REPUBLICANS, AND SARAH PALIN IN PARTICULAR. WORSE YET, HE USED THE SHOOTING TO FUNDRAISE CAMPAIGN DONATIONS. James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on Republican members of Congress yesterday while they practiced at an Alexandria, VA baseball field for an upcoming charity game. Rep. Steve Scalise and three others were shot and remain hospitalized. Hodgkinson was shot and killed...

    On a day when a Republican congressman is fighting for his life, shot by a deranged leftist, the only way these cretins could process the villain/victim narrative switcheroo was to claim that the right started it. This is a smear, debunked years ago, and known as such even to devout liberals like Chris Hayes and Jonathan Chait. If I were Sarah Palin (or, more accurately, the head of her Super PAC), I would sue for defamation. IÂ’m not kidding.

    The New York Times published an editorial Wednesday evening about the attack on Republicans earlier that day in which it claimed falsely that Sarah Palin incited the 2011 Tucson shooting, and that the killer had political motives......At the time, Palin called the false accusations against her a “blood libel,” and for good reason: it was a slander imputing responsibility to her for the deaths of innocents, with the sole purpose of punishing her for her beliefs. The Times goes on to argue that “there’s no sign of incitement as direct as in the Giffords attack” in Wednesday’s shooting. That statement...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was wrongly and inaccurately blamed when Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) was shot several years ago, is standing up for Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont saying he is personally not responsible for the actions of his apparent supporter. Palin, in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News, called for the media industry to be more careful than they were back when Giffords was shot—specifically asking for “media integrity” when it comes to learning the motives of the shooter of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise at the GOP congressional baseball practice on Wednesday morning. “Prayers for healing...

    It was as inevitable as a chemical reaction: Once the tragedy in Tucson became politicized, the right would quickly come to feel aggrieved. Not everyone on the liberal side has tried to tie the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords and 19 others to the violent imagery used by Sarah Palin and other Republicans; many have been admirably restrained. But conservatives aren’t happy about the emerging narrative, and on Sunday, they started punching back. Keith Appell, a top publicist for conservative causes, declared in an email that “some in the media have implicated conservatives, the Tea Party, talk radio, Republicans, etc.” in...

    Kathy Griffin is a great gal. Before you slam down whatever newspaper you are reading onto your table or desk (or punch the monitor of your computer if you’re reading this online), bear with me. It’s not exactly what you think. I still believe with every fiber of my being that Griffin is a vile slice of humanity, ugly in body and soul and bereft of the one thing she pretends to have in spades: humor. Her voice is grating. And her soul, what of it there might be in those murky inner depths, is bitter. And yet, Griffin has...

    The 53-year-old former politician, who served as the governor of Alaska from 2006 until resigning in 2009 and was the Republican party vice presidential nominee in the 2008 election, wrote an impassioned Facebook post on Friday slamming the comedian. Her words come after Griffin, 56, gave a tearful press conference earlier in the day — apologizing again for holding up a decapitated head of President Donald Trump in a gag gone wrong and claiming the 70-year-old former businessman and his family were “bullying” her and “trying to ruin [her] life forever.” “I don’t think I will have a career after...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin condemned comedian Kathy Griffin for photographing herself holding up President Donald Trump’s severed head on Tuesday, saying Griffin is “sick.” “No one should be shocked at the sick audacity of sick characters. Kathy is a hurting individual. She needs help,” Palin told Breitbart News. “Can you imagine if the subject of such an outrageous visual was a liberal? Obviously, media would be unhinged and uncontained in response.” Griffin told a left-leaning blogger she had herself photographed holding the president’s blood-soaked and severed head because she was upset about comments he made during the GOP primary...

    Former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told Breitbart News that she welcomes President Trump’s executive order aimed at lifting the ban on offshore drilling for oil and gas in the Arctic and Atlantic areas. Governor Palin said, “Quashing Obama’s anti-American energy plan makes America great again. We’ve been working for years to remind people that our exceptional nation came to be by developing our God-given natural resources and by expecting reward for an unsurpassed work ethic. We capture that again when we drill, baby, drill!” Trump’s executive order directs the U.S. Department of the Interior to...

    As Fox News continues to reel from the summary dismissal of its top star Bill O'Reilly this week and its creator, Roger Ailes earlier this year, a lot of attention has been given to women who worked there and whether they experienced any sort of harassment. There was a very interesting exchange between Jake Tapper and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during his interview with her on The Lead Thursday. Tapper asked, directly, what she experienced during her time working there as a commentator. Palin, who left the network in June of 2015, didn't elaborate about her personal experiences, but...

    [snip] However, Sarah didn’t let that dissuade her from this money making endeavor. Returning to the traditional white cloth, and taking advantage of information available on you tube, Sarah Palin has launched her new line of clothing under the brand Tableshirts by Palin. With her fabulous first showing at the White House, and the endorsement of Nugent, Rock, and Trump, the line is expected to sell out within days. This is the newly designed blouse that Sarah herself is modeling.

    They ate lobster salad and lamb chops, with baked Alaska for dessert. The dinner-table conversation veered from hunting and music to the Supreme Court. There was also a White House tour — led by their host, President Trump. And, of course, they documented every moment. Trump's Wednesday-night dinner guests — Sarah Palin and conservative musicians Ted Nugent and Kid Rock — posted numerous pictures after their visit to the White House, becoming quite a topic of conversation. One photo in particular has drawn attention — the one in which the three high-profile visitors are seen posing in front of the...
