Former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is striking back against the fake news media.
On Tuesday, she filed a lawsuit against the New York Times over an editorial that tied her to the January 2011 shooting of former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
Fox News reports:
Palin’s attorneys claim that the paper defamed her in the June 14 editorial, published hours after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was shot and wounded while practicing with the GOP’s baseball team in Alexandria, Va.

The editorial, attributed to the Times’ editorial board and titled “America’s Lethal Politics,” initially linked Palin’s rhetoric to the shooting that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
The paper posted a correction the next day admitting that “no such link was established.”
