Extremist radio host Pete Santilli is defending and reiterating his  inflammatory attacks  on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, stating on his program that he wants “to shoot her in the vagina and let her suffer right before my eyes.” In a May 17 rant  captured  by Right Wing Watch, Santilli called for the Bush family and President Obama to be shot and for Clinton to be “shot in the vagina.” The Secret Service  told TPM Media  that they would investigate Santilli’s comments in order to “determine what a person’s intent is when making comments like this.” SANTILLI: You need to understand that what I said was very clear. I didn’t want Hillary Clinton to die. I want her to suffer painfully, right in front of me, after she’s convicted for committing crimes against humanity.

A Media Matters analysis finds that less than 3 percent of television and print coverage of the flooding mentioned climate change, which has increased the frequency of large rain storms and exacerbated flood risks

Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs hosted Cody Wilson – a self-described anarchist who was named one of Wired’s top 15 Most Dangerous People In The World  – to promote his 3D-printed gun, which has come under intense scrutiny. On March 5, Forbes reported that Wilson, a law student at the University of Texas, became the first person to fire a real bullet from a plastic gun made with a 3D-printer. The gun, named the “Liberator,” is made almost entirely of plastic, with the exception of a single nail used as the firing pin and a six-ounce piece of steel to comply with the Undetectable Firearms Act , which makes it illegal to manufacture or possess any firearm that is not detectable by a walk-through metal detector.

Previewing her upcoming special, CNN reporter Deb Feyerick praised NRA board member Ted Nugent for his “deep connection with the facts” on gun violence. But Nugent’s radical views on gun ownership and outrageous and offensive comments about President Obama and prominent Democrats demonstrate that he is not a credible source for information on guns.  On Erin Burnett OutFront, Feyerick previewed a CNN special recorded at Nugent’s home that featured a conversation about strengthening gun laws

Conservative media have been facilitating a witch hunt against U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, claiming that her public statements regarding the attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, were untruthful and misleading. In fact, Rice was using talking points that had been approved by the CIA, and she repeatedly emphasized that the information was preliminary.
