America Watched: 13.4 Million Tune-in to Diane Sawyer’s Special on Gabby Giffords

ABC’s Sawyer Says Palin “Targeted” Gabby Giffords In Special On Congresswoman

In an hour-long special on Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Arizona) and her miraculous recovery, ABC’s Diane Sawyer is being criticized because she may have ruined it in a segment about the Congresswoman’s political future.

Sawyer praised the Congresswoman as being “upbeat” during the “unsettling” 2010 campaign season in which she received “vitriol” from her constituents. Sawyer then linked these events to someone shooting her office door while including a sound of a gun being shot. Continuing, Sawyer says Giffords was “targeted” by Sarah Palin. Cue video of Palin speaking and the ad which had a cross-hair on Giffords’ district. Transcript below:

DIANE SAWYER: “So does Gabby Giffords really want to go back to Washington? Back where she was once called ‘the most positive person in Congress.’

“Staying upbeat, even during the unsettling campaigns of 2010. When we all watched opposition sometimes become vitriol. After she voted for health care, she faced people in her district calling her a ‘traitor,’ booing her in town halls.

[gun shot]

“Someone even fired a gun into her office door. And you may remember Sarah Palin targeted her district with an ad that had a gun sight on it.”

    Dear God. I just went over to the RealClearPolitics site and read the rest of the story. The comments are incredible, absolutely unbelievable. What a bunch of delusional loons. Palin’s supporters (who are still insisting the left is afraid of Sarah) and President Obama’s haters (who wish someone would do side by side pics of Hitler and President Obama to show the world that President Obama stands a lot like Hitler) join and merge into a cacophony of ignorance and hatred.

    Radley, the Palin fans are still demanding that Gabby apologize to Palin! What a sea of delusion! And what a sad group they are.

    Gabby rocks! Screw the whack jobs – they aren’t any more deluded and deranged than when they first crawled out under rocks & bridges. I choose to focus on the love and courage shown by someone who knows people are looking to her for hope and inspiration. She is a true stateswoman who believes her public service can make a difference. Thank you, Gabby – and the many who have helped her.

    It blows my mind that Sarah has never apologized to Gabby. It just shows what a small person Sarah Palin happens to be. Any person will an ounce of moral compass would have called Gabby and apologized for the crosshair incident and this terrible tragedy.
