"We saw a white, Catholic, Republican federal judge murdered on his way to greet a Democratic woman, member of Congress, who was his friend and was Jewish. Her life was saved initially by a 20-year-old Mexican-American college student, who saved her, and eventually by a Korean-American combat surgeon…And then it was all eulogized and explained by our African-American president"

Mark Shields quotes historian Allen Ginsberg on PBS NewsHour.

Her life was saved initially by a 20-year-old Mexican-American college student, who saved her, and eventually by a Korean-American combat surgeon…And then it was all eulogized and explained by our African-American president. And, in a tragic event, that’s a remarkable statement about the country." (Transcript here: http://to.pbs.org/gXF1pS)

DAVID BROOKS:

"The relationship between speech and media and actual action is extremely murky. And correlation is not causation. We shouldn’t make that link very easily.

But to say that their speech was somehow responsible or created or contributed to the killing of those people, including a 9-year-old girl, to me, that wasn’t only irrelevant; that was irresponsible.”

From a discussion between Jim Lehrer, columnists Mark Shields and David Brooks, and Professors Beverly Gage of Yale and Kathleen Hall Jamieson of the University of Pennsylvania.
