Skip to comments.AZ Aftermath: Halperin Praises Media, Condemns Fox, Conservatives For Not 'Turning Other Cheek'
Posted on 01/11/2011 4:36:29 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
NewsBusters has exhaustively documented the way in which the liberal media and Dem politicians have sought to exploit the Arizona shootings, seeking to pin blame on a range of Republicans and conservative media figures.
It was thus nothing short of surreal to listen to MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin this morning. Surveying the situation, Halperin praised the media and politicians for their reaction to the shooting . . . while condemning Fox News and conservative pundits for treating the tragedy like "war and fodder for content."
When Joe Scarborough rightly suggested that Halperin had it backwards, the Time man wouldn't back down. View video after the jump.

MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin praises media and politician handling of AZ shooting, condemns Fox and conservatives for their reaction. Ping to Today show list.
Cheese Whiz, these liberals are touchy aren’t they?
All the conservative commentators have done is state the obvious. There hasn’t been any threat of “bombs falling in five minutes” or anything like that.
It is the democrat way and they will not be happy until communism replaces the American representative republic and the despised masses are slaves to the socialist empire just like other communist nations so beloved of the hateful left.
Well, it cheers me up to make them miserable, if that’s what they call happy.
When the MSM screamers have both lost Brooks, a Wet Tory if there ever was one and caused a Nancy Boy like David Brooks to have sympathy for Sarah Palin, the Tide has Turned.
We’re just trying to repair reputations that have been damaged by a blood libel....that’s all.
Scarborough got this part right, as conservatives sat and waited foe the blame game to begin. Ourvoices were raised only in self defense. Scarborough is wrong by hoping conservatives remain silent for the purpose of harmony...”time for conversation about our political discourse.”
Libs conveniently forget the vitriol from the left (see Michelle Malkin’s summary).
Maybe it’s well that most of them don’t want anything to do with guns. They might shoot their dogs or sumfin after hearing about the latest Rush Limbaugh “scandal” on the boob tube.
It’s the dems motto “Never let a good crisis go to waste”.
This is the same tact they use when calling for “bipartisanship”......after they have their asses handed to them in an election.
And the libs are touchy... all the conservative pundits are saying is that “hey these accusations aren’t true” and the libs act as though they got punched in the nose.
To rational and sane people there is no excuse for the hateful mindless knee-jerk reaction-ism we see in liberal politicians and the old elite media. It is unacceptable to good people and must be pointedly ignored, and when needed, pointedly rejected by clear forceful statements of rejection of that base behavior.
turning?....it’s more like they want separating.
No they don’t like statements like, “they bring a knife you bring a gun”, oh damn messed up again. LOL Not civil discourse don’t you know.
Last night Mark Levin suggested he would be initiating law suits against anyone who blamed him for these murders and assaults.
IMHO the answer to this blood libel is to sue those making these unacceptable claims.
What "handling" is that, having some sappy memorial service where faux mourners most who never had any connection to the deceased can come with placards decrying "right wing rage" and lax gun laws for the tragic shooting of one of their clergy. Liberalism is a religion and a Congress-person is one of their Cardinals. In some sick way Obama and his minions felt a ping of absolute elation about this. I am sure Obama did a fist pump after he learned it was a fellow Democrat who was shot. He knew it was good for 10+ poll points and a few days of ceremony and speechifying where meaningless drivel would be on the menu. Does anyone even listen to Mark Halperin anyways, who is this tool?
A few observations:
1. Democrats with any sense are beginning to run away from blaming the shooting on Republicans, as well they should. The guy was an obsessed lunatic, and that’s all. In fact a majority of Americans agree with this fact and any further accusations by left wing morons will simply further isolate them, driving away yet more moderate Democrats and Independents (the recent article about the white flight from the Democrat party immediately comes to mind).
2. This sheriff making all this noise is simply to trying to divert attention from the fact his office did NOTHING about this guy even though everyone knew he was a certified lunatic. In fact his office knew this guy had made death threats before. That is an arrestable offense. He chould have been ordered by the courts to get medication, etc. It never happened. CYA!
3. Where are this guys parents?!?!?!?! Why didn’t they get him help? Why hasn’t anyone brought this up? Oh yeah, too busy pointing fingers.
