This could do down as one of the more glaring MSM double-standards in recent times . . .
Today's Good Morning America continued the MSM hand-wringing over Sarah Palin tweeting that conservatives should "reload." But Harry Reid chose the day Palin was in his hometown to stage a photo-op of himself going shooting. And how did GMA characterize that? As Reid "being in the cross-hairs" and "doing his best not to seem threatened."
Imagine if the tables were turned and on a day Reid visited Wasilla, Palin had publicly chosen to go shooting. Oh, the MSM wailing and gnashing of teeth about the implied threat!

What if Palin had gone shooting when Reid was in town ping to Today show list.
Reid is TOAST and this is what it looks like.
Just the beginning of cleaning the corrupt slime in the Senate; 219 to vote out of the House or expose for prosecution of corruption and bribery.
Next time it might be loaded!
That is curious. There are neither iron sights nor a scope on that rifle. Nothing but a staged photo op.
You got one of them there hunting licenses? Guy shoots like a girl. Is there anything libs do like a man?
Pray for Amrica
"While" Palin in town would be a more accurate description.
A gun in any liberal hands is a strange sight. This is a political stunt to deceive the Nevada voter he’s strong on 2nd Amendment rights.
Next time it might be loaded!
You mean “reloaded”! (stupid joke, had to go for it)
That’s a staged event. Why do you think cameras were there? Besides holding the gun in an awkward position, his finger is placed in the trigger ring, which is dangerous. Any gun owner will tell you never to put your finger in the trigger unless you have good reason to fire the weapon because having your finger in the trigger is the leading cause for pre-mature misfires.
You’re right: I’ve admin mod to change it.
This guy is PURE testosterome.....NOT!!!
You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.
Of course, he could be good enough of a shooter where he shoots a rifle like most shoot a shotgun,......nah, he's just stupid, and got caught in another lie.
Lib males pee sitting down.
While” Palin in town would be a more accurate description

Yes, I interpreted this as (basically) saying that while in town, Palin and Reid went ahuntin...or some such drivel.
Guess these little ‘quirky’ headlines are for the ‘just read the headline crowd’, and it worked for me, I probably would have IGNORED the story but the headline piqued my interest, as I had to see what could possibly be in her mind to be cavorting with Reid.
I guess that if she stayed overnight the headline would read
“PALIN AND REID SLEPT TOGETHER IN TOWN”
Sad thing is, these people eat it up......
PALIN CAN’T SWIM
“Today, Sarah Palin went duck hunting and after bagging 4 ducks she called her dog back and WALKED ACROSS THE WATER to retrieve them.”
Staged ? of course..
Doesn’t know how to hold the firearm properly.. Agreed
Firearm appears to be bolt action shotgun (no rear sight - small bead on muzzle end)
Video shows high/low trap house in background. A trap shoot ongoing that handlers found and used as a photo-op backdrop.
xrmusn: I wasn’t trying to mislead people with my headline, and have had it changed.
I think the story makes an important point about the MSM double-standard. If Sarah Palin had gone shooting on a day Reid was in her hometown, the MSM would have gone nuts over the “implied threat,” etc.
I stand corrected, it was a shotgun.
Well, it looks like a shotgun all right, but why would anyone use a bolt action shotgun to shoot skeet with? He would have to eject and chamber a new round after each shot with the Bolt lever. Not very efficient for shooting multiple targets!
“And how did GMA characterize that? As Reid “being in the cross-hairs”
GMA inciting violence? Yes, by the standards of the MSM!
Yeah, that looks really dopey. Shooting clays with a bolt action shotgun? I’m sure that went way over the heads of all his media people.
As do I. But if Reid’s shotgun is an old Marlin, it might have collector value inasmuch as Marlin just announced it’s closing down, mainly due to the same type of government policies that Reid promotes.
He looks like he is enjoying himself. So I hope Nevadans will retire him from D.C. so that he can spend more time enjoying his passion for shooting.
Reid recovers from recoil black eye and bruised shoulder... news at 11
Nope, not a Marlin, has that JC Higgins look to it.
Could very well be a Higgins, but Sears didn’t make any firearms themselves. Main contractors were Stevens, H&R, Marlin, and High Standard.
