DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Shots ring out as someone opens fire on a Dallas office building, and a window belonging to NewsRadio 1080 KRLD is hit.

The bullets went through the outside panes of glass on two floors of the 12-story CBS Radio building off Central Expressway at Fitzhugh Avenue.

One of the windows hit belongs to KRLD promotions director Matt Stacks, who was startled by the sound about 3:15 Friday afternoon.

Stacks initially thought a bird hit the 5th floor window. “I just heard a loud boom. I turned around and looked at my window and noticed it started splintering out and saw some stuff falling from the window above.”

I've been concerned for some time that some kooks may start targeting liberal reporters (99% of them?!) and media talking heads. Possible this is one case?

Any time something like this happens, especially against a “liberal” target, I get nervous, as it easily could incite legislative actions of gun control and confiscation.

Not so much the reporters in the field but the media heads that decide to air only pro- one side and anti - the other side as we seen so clearly recently.

My concern extends beyond guns. I’m afraid they’ll get hit by car, run off the road even. Shoved down escalators. Have safes ‘fall’ on them.
But you are right that the media could make a big sensation out of it to build more support for their anti-gun, anti-liberty agendas.

Shall we assume they’ve decided it must be a member of the vast right wing conspiracy? Well, until they discover it’s a disgruntled former employee, a radical Muslim or a former gay lover... at which point the whole thing will be dropped.

Wasn’t there an incident in New York that the MSM wanted to blame on right wingers - only to discover to their horror that it was done by a radical Muslim?

One of these days they won’t catch the perp - and they’ll be able to pin one of these on us... a media firestorm will erupt - it’ll be Kristallnacht - forever.

CBS is thuggy.

The whole point of posting this is to “frighten” Freepers.

Judging from the responses so far, it sure is working.

“Two other bullets hit the window directly above the KRLD newsroom.

That office belongs to former police officer and current attorney Pete Schulte.

It is not clear if Schulte or any of the CBS Radio stations were targets of the shooting.

Schulte is known for representing high-profile clients like Pilar Sanders, the estranged wife of former Cowboys star Deion Sanders.”

SURPRISE, SURPRISE!!!

Bet ya’ll didn’t know that.

Research first, then post a comment.

Otherwise you’re just speculating bullshit, instigating fear about rightwing “kooks” attacking “liberals”.

That’s just plain lazy and irresponsible.

Not likely. CBS was only one of the windows hit. Also shot at was an attorney. He practices family law, the most dangerous law to practice from a personal safety standpoint. More family law attorneys are murdered than any other form of practice. This could also just be random. Not enough information to be able to draw any conclusions.

“against a “liberal” target”
No ,no,no they’re being shot at by an anarchist for not being leftist enough. That’s my take on it and I’m sticking to it.

Good point. For now it makes sense to assume a lawyer more ‘hated’ than a media head.

Targeting liberal reporters..

With a little help from an Internet source and HTML:

"Having achieved political power, Hitler and his Nazi cohorts Obama and his Rat Party cohorts looked for a way to solidify their position. The destruction of the Reichstag Building attack on institutions of their own media was their answer."

Serious attacks from the right wing would be in the form of demanding that Journalism wash his underwear.. for decades the employees of the MSM have been nothing more than skid marks on Journalism's shorts.

Warning shots to back off Benghazi investigation since they and Fox are the only ones making inquiries into the whole mess.

Share the lead.

Perhaps they thought Scott Pelley was in the building, and wanted to do the charitable thing for the overall good of the country.

People were bound to eventually figure out that the MSM has had a major role in destroying our Republic, and that the players in the MSM do not enjoy SS protection like our Destroyer in Chief. I predict many more of these events.

No.. not Obama. Demand that Journalism wash his own underwear.. MSM employees are nothing more than skid marks on Journalism's shorts. Start over clean.

The Leftist media already hates the guts of conservatives more than anything else. Sure, they will use this as they would anything else they could against us. But don’t doubt for a minute that 0bama, the Dems and the Leftist media want to utterly extinguish every last ember of conservative resistance to the progressive agenda. That’s what this fiscal cliff crap is all about, destroy the GOP as any possible last resistance for conservatives.
I would rather be feared than loved as one Italian prince once said. We don’t have to applaud these attacks, we can simply point out this this is a consequence of immoral Leftist policies, and that the media is responsible for promoting these policy positions. The Left does this all the time to excuse wildings and inner city violence by blaming conservatives for the lack of funding for the poor.

Yeah, that’s over by the Cotton Bowl and the State Fair. Not exactly the best of neighborhoods.

Yep. South Dallas, and parts of Oak Cliff and Pleasant Grove, this is an everyday occurance.
