Headline: "The Tea Party Did It!"
Correction: "The Tea Party Didn't Do It."

Becket Adams and the folks over at the Blaze looked at six of the instances of media mythmaking about the Tea Party that I wrote about in the NY Post yesterday.

A taste:

University of Alabama in Huntsville professor Dr. Amy Bishop on February 12, 2010, opened fire on 12 of her colleagues with 9-millimeter handgun, killing three and wounding three more. After the horrific incident, Reuters Foundation Fellow Jonathan Curiel pondered her motivation: “Does racism explain the tenure shooting and the tea party movement?”

No. It doesn’t.

Had Curiel done a little legwork, he would have discovered not only Bishop’s long history of violence, but the fact that, according to one family source, she “was a far-left political extremist who was obsessed with President Obama,” the Boston Herald reported.

Go read the whole outstanding piece.
