Palin mulling le­gal op­tions over false New York Times claim

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Jes­sica Chas­mar

Sarah Palin re­buked a now-cor­rected New York Times ed­i­to­rial that re­peated a de­bunked claim that she in­spired the 2011 Ari­zona mass shoot­ing that killed six peo­ple and in­jured Rep. Gabrielle Gif­fords, Ari­zona Demo­crat.

In a Face­book post Thurs­day morn­ing, the for­mer Alaska gover­nor ac­cused “per­versely bi­ased” news me­dia for “at­tempt­ing to de­stroy in­no­cent peo­ple with lies and more fake news.”

“I’d hoped the me­dia had col­lec­tively ma­tured since the last at­tack on a Rep­re­sen­ta­tive when me­dia cov­er­age spewed bla­tant lies about who was to blame. There’s been no im­prove­ment. The NYT has got­ten worse,” she wrote.
