>> My goodness, it's so good to be here.>> Former vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, is suing the New York Times. The former Alaska Governor filed a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper in response to a recent editorial suggesting a link between Palin's political action committee and the 2011 Arizona shooting rampage that killed six people and severely injured then Congresswoman, Gabby Giffords.
The Times ran the editorial on June 14th, the day Representative Steve Scalise and others were shot as House Republicans were practicing for a congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia. The editorial focused on politically motivated attacks against Congress members. The Times issued a correction to the editorial the next day.
But Palin says it didn't go far enough. A spokeswoman for the Times says they will defend against any claim vigorously.>> To do the right thing.>> Palin is seeking more than $75,000 in damages, according to the lawsuit.
