Sept 2009: census-taker Bill Sparkman found hanged in rural Kentucky. Media speculated it was Tea Party. (He killed himself.)

Feb 2010: Joe Stack flies small plane into an IRS building. Anti-tax TP rhetoric blamed. (He quoted from the Communist Manifesto.)

Feb 2010: Amy Bishop shoots colleagues at University of Alabama faculty meeting. Gun-loving Tea Party suspected. (She was an Obama voter.)

March 2010: John Patrick Bedell shot two Pentagon security. A right-wing extremist, media asked? (A registered Democrat and 9/11 Truther.)

May 2010: massive Times Square car bomb found. Bloomberg speculates it's someone upset about ACA. (Actually, plain vanilla jihadist scum.)

Sept 2010: James Lee takes hostages at Discovery Chan HQ. Media speculates: climate change denier? (An environmentalist who hates humans.)

Jan 2011: Jared Lee Loughner shoots up campaign event of Rep. Giffords. Media: TP rhetoric is to blame. (An apolitical conspiracy theorist.)

July 2012: James Holmes shoots up theater in Aurora, CO. Brian Ross suggests he's a TPer on live TV. (Just another unmedicated nutter.)

April 2013: Tsarnaev bros bomb Boston Marathon. Media suggests RWNJ commemorating "Patriot's Day." (Actually, just more jihadist scum.)

Oct. 2013: Media retroactively blames right wing for JFK assassination. (Actually, LHO was a communist defector.)

Dec 2013: student shoots up CO high school w/ shotgun. Denver Post scrubs his self-described "socialist" beliefs. (We're on to you, media.)

The media have an image of "right wing extremists" in this country as bascially no different than the Taliban or Muslim terrorists. So every time there is an incident they always speculate it is an angry white man. I remember the Washington sniper case and everyone speculated it was an angry white man. Too bad it turned out to be two negro faggots. The media suddenly lost interest in the story.

Similar to all the far right nonsense about the Foster suicide, the president's birthplace, and his religion.

No one pays attention to extremists.

You want media prejudice there FW?

According to Monica Crowley, one day as she was walking through Times Square just minding her own business, she was accosted by a woman who claimed she worked for one of the other media networks who stated that every day at 10AM the news staff would gather and discuss how they could protect Barack Obama.

Thank God its not 1974 all over again and we at least have a fighting chance today to figuratively cut these modern day would be Woodward and Bernstein's testicles off and sew them to their lips.

WTF does Foster have to do with left wing lying. It was the MSM that made that an issue, and the FACT that the evidence just didn't add up. Like why did Hillary's aides raid his office BEFORE his death was official.

Hillary's team started and perpetuated the issue of where Obama lied about his birth place. Remember 22 years of allowing the lie of him being from Kenya until he wanted to run for president?

Who in the hell makes an issue of his religion except some on the fringe? Geez fake can't you do any better? They are going to stop paying you if you keep posting such pathetic excuses.

No one is concerned about your argumentation. Yell all you want. You are simply being laughed at because of the far right reactionaries' lack of creditability.

This writer nails it to the wall. Great article at link. Kudos to the author.

All of a sudden, the left-wing media doesn’t think the political views of a crazed gunman are worth discussing.

Under the media rules of engagement set forth after the Tucson shooting in 2011, we should be having a huge national conversation about the Left-Wing Climate of Hate right now, and asking how the bitter personal attacks favored by leftists – who are currently fond of asserting that anyone who disagrees with President Barack Obama is a subhuman racist monster – drove student Karl Pierson, 18, of Colorado to attack the Arapahoe High School, critically injuring a fellow student before killing himself.

Every American should be asking how Pierson’s devotion to socialism and communism led him to violence.

MSNBC hosts should be flogging themselves live on the air for their role in creating the Climate of Hate that led to this outburst of youthful violence, citing their own words from 2011 to explain why they must be held to account.

Of course, instead of putting Pierson’s outspoken political views in the headlines – as they most assuredly would, if it was even remotely possible to link him to conservative causes or the Tea Party – the media is burying this aspect of the story, and rather swiftly losing interest in talking about Pierson at all.

The Denver Post actually stealth-edited their story to quietly remove the word “socialist,” changing this sentence:

Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with the gunman, described him as a very opinionated Socialist.

… to read as follows:

Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with Pierson, described him as very opinionated.

There's a narrative the media wants. It's perfectly okay to paint every act of violence as the result of the Right Wing Tea Party boogyman because they know there is an out: if there is evidence to the contrary the media can always blame it on confusion during a breaking story*. Even if the facts aren't in line with the narrative, the seed is planted in the viewer's head.

*Getting facts together before reporting is dead as disco. In a world where sensationalism and the need to scoop the competition is of paramount importance, being able to actually provide real information is of secondary value to getting viewers.
