The Media Research did a nice job on their list but they left out a lot of people. Joy Behar, Woopie Goldberg, Alec Baldwin, Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Wright, the list continues. Please feel to add to the list, just remember you do have to go to work tomorrow.
(CNSNews.com) – The Media Research Center released today a list of comments made by members of the media in recent years that call for the death or suffering of conservative leaders. These quotes are evidence of the double standard that certain media exercise in blaming conservatives for the shooting in Tucson, Ariz., while ignoring liberals’ death-wish-like rhetoric against conservatives, said the organization in a press release.
“The so-called ‘news’ media have zero currency in this debate because we have documented the Left using hateful, vicious language far worse than any conservative,” said Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center (MRC), a conservative watchdog group. “Their attacks on conservatives are untrue and utterly hypocritical.”
In one of the most memorable moments of the memorial last night in Tucson, Barack Obama told the
pep rally audience that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords had opened her eyes for the first time on Wednesday night.
It was very emotional moment:
But, unfortunately it was not true.
The Sonoran Chronicle reported that Rep. Giffords could open her eyes on Sunday.
(The Sonoron has since pulled the article.)
The bullet “traveled the entire length of the brain on the left side,” said Dr. Rhee, Chief Trauma Surgeon at the University Medical Center, at a press conference on Sunday. In terms of being shot in the head, this is “about as good as it’s going to get,” said Rhee.
Giffords can open her eyes, but because she is on a ventilator she can’t speak, said Rhee.
The surgery took about two hours, said Rhee.
Rhee attributed Giffords’ surviving the gunshot wound to a variety of factors, including a fast response by paramedics, proper care by the hospital staff, and luck. The bullet did not cross from one hemisphere of the brain to the other, nor did it go through the geometric center of the brain.
Would someone please tell me this was not planned.
More… The Tucson Sentinel also reported that Gabby could open her eyes in their Tuesday article.
(Reuters) – Ohio is joining a multistate lawsuit over the federal healthcare reform plan passed less than a year ago because the law “tramples on the rights of Ohio’s citizens,” the state’s new attorney general said on Monday.
“We need to defend the checks and balances that our Constitution creates through its divisions of power and protect the people of Ohio from this huge federal overreach,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, a Republican, in a statement.
