Tucson Survivor: ‘It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle & the rest got their first target’

Eric Fuller, who was shot in the knee during Saturday’s massacre in Tucson, has been making the media rounds this week. And as the week went on, his blame has gone beyond accused gunman Jared Lee Loughner.

“Early Show” co-anchor Chris Wragge was among the first to talk with Fuller on Tuesday. Since, he’s been interviewed by “Inside Edition” and NBC caught up with him as he showed up at the home of Jared Loughner. “I thought I would try to come over here and try and forgive him,” the 63-year-old disabled veteran said, adding, “I know that sounds crazy.”

There was also this quote from MSNBC president Phil Griffin:

Keith Olbermann ‘Interviews’ Sharron Angle

Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle does not do many TV interviews. Save for a memorable back and forth with Fox News Channel’s Carl Cameron in which she explained that she wants the media to “ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported,” she has largely been absent from the national airwaves.

Last night MSNBC host Keith Olbermann took a cue from “The Daily Show,” and “interviewed” Angle about her candidacy and her position on the media:
