C'mon, we can't go down the same roads

So Gatway Pundit, who I really like, had this article:

NY Times Tipped Off Shooter to GOP Practice Field Around Time He Moved to Area

This is the kind of leading language I despise. "Tipped off?" Doesn't this sound like they were working with the shooter.

"Psst, hey buddy, wanna know where the GOP is practicing for target practice?"

Look I hate the Times, but being like them isn't good for us. The article in the times itself talks about heightened security around certain congressman. While it may be true Hodgkinson may have read that in the Times and used it, the article seems to talk about how these are more difficult and secure places if you want to off a congressman. Not the best tactics.

Look, the article itself was a news story. Locations where people are going to be or where they happen to spend their time, even important people, get printed all the time. If Gateway is trying to insinuate that the Times was in some way responsible for this happening, it's a stretch to say the least. It also doesn't do anything but get clicks from angry people.

I think we have enough angry people.
