Fox News Implicated in Tucson TragedyYuroc
The January 8, 2011, attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, AZ, is a very unfortunate example of the power of creative visualization, taken in the wrong direction.
The January 8, 2011, attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, AZ, is a very unfortunate example of the power of creative visualization, taken in the wrong direction. The recent midterm elections in the USA were very divisive, and Sarah Palin, a Tea Party candidate, placed on her web site a map of elected officials that were being targeted for removal. On each official's home town there was a rifle-scope cross hairs symbol.
Congresswoman Giffords, who was wounded by the mad man, was one of those who had a cross-hair symbol placed over her home town of Tucson, AZ. The crazy killer, perhaps inflamed by the wild emotional rhetoric that has become common in the political arena in the USA, especially Fox News, bought a gun and shot the Congresswoman. Claims by Fox News that the killer was "apolitical" are belied by evidence that he carefully researched political assassinations ust before his attack.
Andrew Neil, broadcaster and former Sunday Times editor, says he thinks Rupert Murdoch is "not happy" with Fox News' editorial policy. As a former News International employee, Neil tells Richard Bacon on BBC Radio 5 live: "I know from sources that he's not happy with a lot that appears on it."
"My own view is that it's out of control."
It is a milestone when the conservative owner of the most prominent right-wing media outlet has decided that the vitriole has gone too far. It is time for the pendulum to swing back towards the center. It is time to use creative visualization for the good of the future, not for short-term political gain.
