    No. Individuals are.

    Re: Does the media owe the TEA party an apology?

    I watched some of an interview with the Sheriff last night on CNN and it was crazy. He was happily admitting that:

    1. he had no evidence for tying the rhetoric/tea party to the shootings.
    2. it was his job as a professional to speculate (!!!) and comment about it
    3. it's not Rush's fault, but that attitude anyone can see is the cause

    I was trying to figure out how it could be real, the things issuing from his mouth. What he needs to learn is that Beck and Rush are Entertainers who want you to believe they are public servants. And that as a sworn public servant, he should not be behaving like an entertainer.

    He has a political ax to grind and now he has a national audience.

    Agreed. The unprofessionalism he showed during this tragedy is disgusting.

    The tea baggers owe the American public an apology !
    Their accursed love of guns cost a nine year old innocent girl her life.
    Our media needs work.
    Showing that murderous face on national TV should be prohibited; doing this once may be OK, but that is enough.

    I agree but I think he's elected. The voters would have to kick him out.

    Dupnik, 74, a Democrat who has served as Pima County sheriff since 1980, is known for his colorful and often bluntly partisan commentary. Last year, he refused to enforce Arizona's aggressive new law targeting illegal immigrants, calling it "stupid" and "racist." He coined the phrase "political fornickaboobery," to describe the motives he felt were behind the crackdown.
    He has called the tea party "bigots," and on Saturday, he had similar words about Arizona's reputation. "The anger the hatred the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous, and unfortunately I think Arizona has become sort of the capital," he said. "We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry."

    Thank you for this. Folks have been saying that the left hasn't been blaming the TEA party for this, and now you come along and do exactly that.
