NPR paints Arizona as vitriolic, NPR guilty of Vitriol and lies, NPR attempt at Tea Party smear?
“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans
Vitriol: something highly caustic or severe in effect, as criticism.

“NPR Shows Everyone How to Speak ‘Tea Bag’… with OUR Money”
“It is surely true that everyone should have a sense of humor, and, of course, what’s funny to one person is not necessarily funny to someone else. Politicians are mocked, caricatured, and ridiculed all the time. It’s part of America’s history to make fun of our leaders and to bring them down to our level.
But what happens when the so-called “humor” crosses the line? It’s one thing to make fun of someone, but trying to discredit an entire movement of frustrated Americans and doing it with taxpayer money is something entirely different. How much longer are we going to continue to fund left-wing propaganda with OUR money? Just look at the NPR web site for their latest “humor” directed at the hundreds of thousands of “Tea Party” activists across the country.
Prominently displayed on the National Public Radio (NPR) web site is a new cartoon titled, “Learn To Speak Tea Bag.” Of course, Tea Party activists don’t ever use the term “tea bag,” a phrase that refers to a sexual act and which has been used by the media to demean the entire tea party movement.”

“‘Vitriol’ Cited As Possible Factor In Arizona Tragedy”
“Law enforcement officials continue to piece together the facts in Saturday’s shooting rampage that left a federal judge dead and a congresswoman critically injured in Arizona, and some are questioning whether divisive political rhetoric may have played a role.”
“At a news conference Saturday night, a clearly emotional Dupnik, who has been close to both Giffords and Roll, repeatedly cited what he characterized as the “vitriol” that has infected political discourse. He said that his own state has become “the mecca for prejudice and bigotry.”
There is reason to believe, he said, that the shooting suspect “may have a mental issue,” adding that people like that “are especially susceptible to vitriol.””
“Giffords, a moderate “Blue Dog” Democrat and gun rights advocate who in November eked out a win for a third term over Tea Party-backed Republican Jesse Kelly, underwent surgery at University Medical Center in Tucson. Hospital Director Pete Rhee said that a bullet had entered and exited the congresswoman’s head, but that he was as “optimistic” as he could be in the situation.”
So, who is being vitriolic?
