Petition to the News Media—Stop the Nonsense

I’ve had this for a week which is longer than I usually keep a petition. Therefore, another petition:

From: Our Country Deserves Better PAC

From the petition website

“Shame On The Media for Accusing the Tea Party of Being Responsible for the Tucson Massacre

We, the undersigned, protest the news media’s shameful efforts to try and smear the Tea Party movement and conservative leaders by suggesting that the Arizona shooting was somehow the fault of the Tea Party movement.

This young man is responsible for his own actions, which represent in NO WAY the values and principles of the Tea Party movement.

We in the Tea Party movement deserve to be treated more fairly than this by the news media and they owe all of us an apology for their shameful conduct during this American tragedy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this attack and their families.”
