Reporter resigns after falsely tweeting that Maryland shooter wore MAGA hat

One wonders why this blame game continues. No one from . . . either side changes their minds about who is responsible. Most other Americans are repelled by this exercise in futility. But as America careens toward violent conflict between the two sides, the blame game will escalate and could eventually lead to tit for tat altercations. Violence will beget violence, reaction to counterreaction. Only losers will be left standing.


Rick Moran  "If the first casualty of war is the truth, it is also a casualty in the wake of any recent mass shooting in America.

"It has become de rigueur for both sides to heap responsibility for a mass shooting on the backs of their political opponents. Trying to make political hay out of a tragedy used to be an infamia - no one would dare use the bodies of innocent people to make a political point.
"Those days are in the past. Even if the shooter is demonstrably insane or mentally incompetent, there are always nuggets of information that can be unearthed in the shooter's past that will tie him to one side or the other. And sometimes both.
"A reporter in Springfield Massachusetts thought he was just playing the blame game when he tweeted that the man who killed 5 people in a Maryland newsroom "left behind" a MAGA hat. The intent was clear - blame the president's tirades against journalists for the massacre.
"But the reporter's newspaper reacted swiftly and decisively. The 21 year veteran newspaper man was fired.

Also in the above article:  
Reuters reporter Rob Cox tweeted Thursday, "This is what happens when @realDonaldTrump calls journalists the enemy of the people. Blood is your hands, Mr. President. Save your thoughts and prayers for your empty soul." 
What about the consequences of the "journalists"/ media and their unceasing call of this President being the enemy of the people? Is that restaurant's action against Sarah Sanders a foretaste of worse things to come? TD
