Something You Don't Hear Every Day On Fox News....

Shep Smith interviewed Patricia Maisch on her role in the tragedy in Tucson.

Shep Smith interviewed Patricia Maisch on her role in the tragedy in Tucson. Mrs Maish downplayed her heroism, saying humbly: "The two men that secured him were the heroes. I just was an assistant in being able to get that magazine or clip." Smith then went through detail by detail of the horrible event with her, which I've excised in the clip above. At the end of the nearly 10-minute interview, she floored Shep Smith with this:

SHEP SMITH: If there's anything you can think of over the last day and a a half that you might be able to turn this into a positive?...

PATRICIA MAISCH: I don't think so...I think...mmm...that Sheriff Dupnik said it best, that the extreme right, reporters, radio and TV have added to this problem, and I'm just hoping that that will change because of this. That's my hope, is that the Republicans will stop naming bills in very hateful things like the "job-killing" whatever the rest of that bill is. I think they've just gone over the top. I think the extreme right has gone too far.

Here's a screengrab from CNN of Mrs Maisch.
