Sarah Palin sues NY Times for tying political ad to mass shooting

Share

In the lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court Tuesday, Palin's lawyers say the Times "violated the law and its own policies" when it accused her of inciting the 2011 attack that killed six people.

Palin, who emerged on the national political scene as running mate to John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, is seeking damages in an amount to be determined by a jury at trial.

The New York Times later apologized and corrected the piece, but not before Palin took notice and lambasted them on her Facebook page.

They could recall Rob Refsnyder , who is on the 40-man roster and can play both the infield and the outfield. Hicks was 1-for-2 in Sunday's game, lifting his average this season to.290 with a.398 on-base percentage.

There was, however, evidence in the form of a GOP hit-list note discovered in Hodgkinson's possession at the time of his attempted massacre.

Sarah Palin, former vice-presidential candidate, filed a defamation lawsuit against The New York Times Company on Tuesday, saying the newspaper had published a statement about her in a recent editorial that it "knew to be false". The editorial also incorrectly described a map distributed by a political action committee before that shooting.

"As set forth in her Complaint, Mrs. Palin seeks to hold The Times to its November 13, 2016, pledge, and to face both journalistic and financial accountability for the false statements that it published about Mrs. Palin", the attorneys said.

CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker has noted how the network's feud with Trump has helped its ratings and branding. "Classy move. Scaramucci, who had initially complained about the accuracy of the story, accepted CNN's apology Saturday.

"In fact, none mentioned Mrs. Palin or acknowledged that Mrs. Palin did not incite a deranged man to commit murder", the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit also picks apart, piece-by-piece, the edits and corrections made to the original editorial, which it claims were "woefully insufficient".

The paper said Palin incited the shooting, which left congresswoman Gabby Giffords with a severe brain injury, through an ad from her PAC that put "Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs". In that editorial, the Times claimed as fact that Loughner was incited to act after Palin's political action committee posted a map of electoral districts, including that of Giffords' district, with stylized crosshairs on them, as iMediaEthics previously reported.
