The Almanac's characterization of "Palin related threats" is disingenuous journalism at its worst. Palin has never made threats of violence. What you printed is libelous and you owe the Almanc readers a retraction and an apology. Mr. Boyce you should be ashamed of yourself.

I think the story is clear: the threats were related to Sen. Yee's efforts to get information about Sarah Palin's $75,000 contract to speak at California State University at Stanislaus. It doesn't say that Sarah Palin made the threats.

Mr Hine,

With all due respect, the implication was that Sarah Palin incited this egregious behavior when in fact she had nothing to do with it. She has also gone on the record many times deploring the use of violence.
