Tuesday’s CBS Mornings and NBC’s Today followed up their attempts Monday to smear tens of millions of conservatives and Republicans as responsible for Friday’s brutal attack on Paul Pelosi by insisting the suspect was engaged in “far-right extremism” and tied to both the Tea Party movement and the 2010 GOP wave.
