Conservatives should have turned the other cheek?

MARK HALPERIN: I just want to single out one thing. I don't want to over-generalize but I think the media and the politicians have behaved pretty well so far. The thing I'm most concerned about now is the anger on the right-wing commenatariat: on Fox, and George Will, and other conservatives are, in some cases justifiably upset at liberals. But they're turning this right now, in the last 24 hours, back into the standard operating procedure of all of this is war and fodder for content, rather than trying to bring the country together.

Seems liberal progressives like conservatives a lot better when we know our place.

Thoughts?

  • Grly, you're right, they have not behaved well. But, you cannot say that faux news has been completely honest. So, why even argue about it? Neither side is perfect, get over yourselves... LOL


     I can see why the right is upset. Our side has accused them of causing the shooting. They didn't cause it the crazy kid who did the shooting is the only one responsible. From accounts I have read he didn't care much for TV and he has been obsessed with Giffords for three years. The left could have sat back waited for all the information instead they started the blame game. The right was upset as they should be because the only thing people will remember 2 years from now are the initial reports the left knows this. I personally will apologize for what my side of the aisle has said and done to the right. It was wrong and I won't try to justify it like others have done. I am sorry wished others would do the same.

  • Funny how someone can be the spawn of satan until he suddenly says something the people who hate him agree with and then he's the word of god.

  • CNN, MSNBC, NBC, Newsweek, New York Times, Clyburn, etc have NOT behaved well at all. They are as disgusting and sick as some of the liberals have been on cafemom.

  • So the problem isn't Liberals making unfair accusations and jumping to conclusions in a gleeful attempt to smear and discredit Conservatives. The problem is Conservatives having the audacity to stand up for themselves. Got it.

  • And would our place be in exposing liberal/progressives for what they really are?

Is that what you meant? FYI, if someone disagrees with you philosophically that does not make them evil. It means they see things differently, and that's it.

    NONE of them, including Fox, have behaved well. Everyone, EVERYONE, is acting like spoiled children and it needs to stop.

  • One fox news vs. CNN, MSNBC NBC , Hillary clinton, newsweek, New York Times, Clyburn, Grayson, etc.( I can name more if you want)... Who are STILL engaged in a sick attempt to connect the right to the shootings?

  • Gee, only liberals were bad? not so much

    Did fox try and link the killer to the left? Is fox still trying to find an association to politics and the killer? Nope. But ALL those I mentioned ( and more EVEN politicians) have tried to link the shootings to the right... Then add to it, sick people here on CM who post pics of Sarah holding a gun in questions asked about the shooting. Disgusting.
