This is a classic case of media bias. In fact, it’s worse than that. It’s media dishonesty. We know exactly what motivated the man who shot Steve Scalise.
He was a far left Bernie Sanders supporter who hated Republicans. He even asked someone at the scene if the players on the baseball field were Republicans. To suggest we don’t know what motivated him is ridiculous.

NBC’s Pete Williams: Motivations Behind Scalise Shooting Can ‘Never’ Be Known
NBC News justice correspondent Pete Williams said Monday that the motivations behind the June shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice are still unknown, and will never be known, despite widespread agreement that the targeting of the attack was political.
Williams was discussing Sunday’s shooting in Las Vegas, and how the gunman’s motivation for the attack may never be completely known. Williams then tried to tie the Las Vegas shooting investigation to the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise (R., La.).
“It would not be unheard of if at the end of all this it remains a puzzle,” Williams said. “For example, just the recent shooting at the congressional baseball game here outside Washington, D.C. that wounded Steve Scalise and you know, was a devastating attack on that institution; the authorities can never say for sure what drove the gunman in that case.”

That’s an outright lie. We know exactly why the Scalise shooter did it!
