MSNBC Uses Fake, ‘Sexy’ Photos of Sarah Palin on Air; Will Network Correct and Apologize?
NewsBusters ^ | 11-13-09 | Scott Whitlock

Posted on 11/13/2009 11:21:03 AM PST by euram

On the Friday edition of Morning Meeting, host Dylan Ratigan featured fake photos of Sarah Palin during a mocking segment on why Americans are fascinated with the former vice presidential candidate. While listing the show’s top ten reasons, Ratigan showed a doctored photo of Palin’s head on the bikini-clad body of a woman holding a weapon.

Ratigan suffers from small equipment inadequacy.

No apology necessary. It’s called political caricature and has been used for millenia to make fun of political figures.

Stupid - they’re going too far and they don’t know it. They preach to their deranged, hate-filled choir, while the actual people who are fed up with their degradation just get more and more grim and determined.

Result? Landslides in 2010 & 2012.

They know for absolute dead-on certainty that the photo Mr. Ratigan put-up was a photoshop.

No way. Caricature has to be presented in a context where it's clear that that is what it is. A doctored photograph is not clearly a caricature.

Indeed. I know a lot of people who seem to think Gov Palin's IQ is somewhere in the 70's. She's a moron, and everybody in the entire country knows it, right? Right?

Well, she's going to do a lot of press, and sell a lot of books, and lot of people will be very, very surprised at how much they have in common with her. And with any luck some people will start to realize the Democrats hate people like her -- and I'm just like her ... which means ... hey, wait a minute ....!!!

'F' Rattigan.

There's a picture of Sarah out there that is just fantastic. She's not wearing glasses, she's standing in a snow covered wood wearing a fur-lined parka. Her demeanor is grave and self-possessed. The photo is outstanding!

She appears slightly older, far more serious and mature than her usual self. I've been unable to find it anywhere.

The volume of the outrage from the lefties is in direct proportion to the success of Sarah. Ergo, Sarah is winning. Die in your wrath, Rats. Have a happy ‘10 & ‘12.

I don't think the good folks at MSNBC even realize their bias, so firmly ensconced in their political fishbowl are they.

I imagine their thought process is something like "what's wrong with using a sleazy doctored photo? It's Sarah Palin! Everyone hates her! Duh...."

No, not caricature. Caricature, to be caricature needs to be obviously that. Anything that appears to be real but is in fact fake. Is fake. To present photos that are photoshopped to appear authentic, and at the same time present an inaccurate image is not caricature. You should know that, probobly do know that.

MSDNC will never apologize to Sarah Palin, they wouldn’t do it if they had guns put to their heads. They are stuck in their liberal ideology and Obama love, they will NEVER say something positive about a Conservative

My Girl has waaaaay too much class to do this,but I’d love to see the following scenario after she’s sworn in in 2012....She walks onto the set clad in that same bikini,walks straight up to that puke and leans in for a big wet kiss-but instead slaps him in the face and walks off,strutting,smiling,all beautiful and appearing so haughty and hot. I’d roll!

If this is the same picture that we all saw last summer, then you have to be daft to believe it is a real picture of her. Or perhaps Palin is such a self-caricature that you actually believe a photo in which she is shooting a rifle while wearing a bikini on a lakeside dock.

DryFly, the woods are full of people who have been brainwashed by the media to the point where, yes, they certainly would believe that fake photo was real. Fake photos are fake photos, not caricatures. Hang it up.

Political caricature has no business in a "news" story. But I guess that little fact escaped your notice in your rush to defend the hysterically incompetent bigoted partisans at Major Silly Nonsense Broadcast Constantly.

I watched Keith Olberman the other day - it's on at 4:00 AM on Dish network. I figure I can watch that without boosting their viewership at that time.

Anyway, he kept showing shots of Dede Scuzzyfavy on one screen, then shots of Sarah on the other. He was trying to say things detrimental to Sarah and complimentary to Scuzzy.

But all I could think of was how great Sarah looked and how bad Scuzzy looked.

I wonder if he realized how his ploy resulted in an epic fail.

Keep it up Keith-y. Keep contrasting Sarah with any of your liberal slobs. Sarah wins every time!

When caught posting such a completely ignorant response on a tread you obviously did not read, as you have been here, your best response is to slink away quietly hoping few people notice.

Screaming your idiocy louder only makes sure more and more people notice, and laugh at you, for being such a flaming clown

Fraudulent photos in a “news” story are not caricature, they are journalistic fraud.

Please stop embarrassing yourself by posting such hysterically ignorant drivel.

Again, if you believe that anyone will take the photos as accurate, then perhaps the problem is with the candidate’s public persona. That’s her fault, not mine.
