While CNN and MSNBC were broadcasting President Obamas remarks on the failed gun control compromise, Fox News The Five crew were discussing the media reaction to the Boston Marathon bombings. Co-host Greg Gutfeld went after media figures who he said attempted to ascribe blame to people they already hate.
Andrea Tantaros reviewed what she sees as a history of journalistic malpractice after major incidents like this one, from the furor over the Sarah Palin target map after Tuscon to ABC News Brian Ross linking the Aurora shooter to the Tea Party. She said that there seemed to be no repercussions when people make mistakes like these and shes seeing it continue during the coverage of the Boston bombings.
Meanwhile, Kimberly Guilfoyle said she believes that if there was any information about the Boston attack being perpetrated by a right-wing radical, it would have been leaked by the liberal media already, because they cant wait to put that stuff out. From there the discussion devolved into cross-talk as the hosts tried to get Bob Beckel to point out an example when a right-winger has ever blamed the left for one of these events.
Beckel mentioned recent remarks from conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, who didnt exactly blame liberals, but did bring up immigration reform as an issue that should be looked at more closely in the wake of the attacks.....

Maybe it’s just me, but we (FR) seem to be slowing down sporadically this evening .. nothing like a few months ago, but pokier than recently.
For one week he was sane and rational and now he is back to his same old blind liberal idiocy, saw him this afternoon and he was an embarrassment. Blaming the NRA and calling them murderers for any future gun deaths.
This is not a mistake, it is a strategy. When something happens like this, everyone is riveted to the news. Then, when the criminal is dead, or in prison, or whatever, interest in the story drops off drastically. Which means if you lie and blame the right flagrantly all during the days when nothing is known, they get to give free bad publicity to the right. Then after the criminal is almost invariably revealed to be left wing, the press drops it, and no one is interested anymore anyway. So its about 1000:1 free smears of the right for every truth about the left.
Posting is slower than usual.
Thanks for mentioning.
I was about to reboot!
