Posted on 06/27/2017 3:47:13 PM PDT by ameribbean expat
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 NYTs 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 that it knew to be false: that Mrs. Palin was responsible for inciting a mass shooting at a political event in January 2011, Palins suit states.
Specifically, on June 14, 2017, The Times Editorial Board, which represents the voice of The Times, falsely stated as a matter of fact to millions of people that Mrs. Palin incited Jared Loughners January 8, 2011, shooting rampage at a political event in Tucson, Arizona, during which he shot nineteen people, severely wounding United States Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and killing six, including Chief U.S. District Court Judge John Roll and a nine-year-old girl.

Hit ‘em for fifty million.
Hoping she wins. Kick their butts. Tired of the Left getting away with so many lies.
I want to see more of the right fight back, and win.
Drill ‘em, Baby, Drill ‘em....
100 million and control of editorial page—currently the front page of the NY Slime.
About time we step up and start suing these people for the lies they spread...
There used to be a law called ‘slander’...if what a person said about you caused you to be fired or demoted, or if it costs you money to prove it was wrong, the person who ‘slandered’ you would have to pay an amount and all court costs...do we still have this law???
If we do, I suggest that a group of us get together and sue CNN for the lies they have told about Our President that has caused us stress, panic attacks, etc. not that any of us have those causes because we know Our President doesn't lie...
FINALLY!!!!!! GO FOR A BILLION, SARAH!!!!!
Sarah Ping!!!!! (-:
Go for every cent the NYT is worth!
The NYT is long overdue for a financial smackdown due to libelous statements.
Good for her. The LW files 30+ suits against her just to get her to resign as governor. Its about time she returns fire

Good!! Hope she takes them for every penny they are worth
