The Arizona sheriff who said that local TV and radio hosts should do some “soul searching” after Saturday’s shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (in photo), D-Ariz., and others was blasted this morning by Arizona talk-show hosts. “I would say that his comments have incited stupidity around the world,” radio host Garret Lewis said. Another radio host, Jon Justice, said (without any hint of irony): “People need to go and point fingers. It’s unfortunate but some people do. They have to find somebody to demonize.” Meanwhile, Rebecca Mansour, an adviser to Sarah Palin, said it was “appalling” that some people have linked Palin’s campaign map with crosshairs on Giffords’ district to the shooting. She also claimed that the crosshairs were not meant to be an allusion to guns but were rather “surveyors symbols.”
