Skip to comments.AP Attacks Gov. Palin EVEN in Birth Announcement of Grandson
Posted on 12/31/2008 6:52:20 AM PST by Mobile Vulgus
The Associated Press is classy, indeed. They can't even keep sniping at Sarah Palin out of a story announcing the blessed birth of her grandson. Ah, but wait, it gets even more annoying because not only did the AP snipe at Palin in its first birth announcement story, once called on it the AP went back twice to rearrange the piece rewriting history to make it seem as if they never sniped at her in the first place.
Initially, the AP attacked Palin in its very first paragraph saying that daughter Bristol's pregnancy was the thing that caused Palin's candidacy to "go downhill." At 7:20 PM the AP gave us this: (Bold my emphasis)
ANCHORAGE The teenage daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, whose quest for the vice presidency began to go downhill the day she announced the pregnancy, has given birth to a son, a magazine reported Monday. Bristol Palin, 18, gave birth to Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on Sunday, People magazine reported online. He weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces. Colleen Jones, the sister of Bristol's grandmother, told the magazine that "the baby is fine and Bristol is doing well."
Downhill? The AP is saying that the daughter's pregnancy is what caused everything to flop? Then, why did Palin's acceptance speech -- a speech that happened days after the pregnancy announcement -- get as many viewers on TV as Obama's historic acceptance speech? Sure it was a momentary controversy, but it had practically no affect on the candidacy.

AP has no manners... no class ... no dignity.
They are not dissimilar from the Chinese Government. (Lying about the ages of the gymnasts, for instance.)
what goes round comes round.....when we conservatives figure out that it is necessary to take back the media, we can put the sock on the other foot. the msm is in complete control.
God I wish some unbiased company starts competing with the AP. I’m sick of this liberal propaganda monopoly.
You know that you are over your target when the flack starts coming up.
“whose quest for the vice presidency began to go downhill the day she announced the pregnancy” ..................... LOL!!!! This Jerk must not have heard of her rally attendance.
They had on CNN at the gym this morning and some worthless talking head commentator was whining “All Sarah Palin cares about is getting on camera. She is everywhere. She won’t go away.”
But why don’t they say that about Obama?
“...Bristol’s pregnancy was the thing that caused Palin’s candidacy to “go downhill.”
So when Palin runs in 2012, if she runs, then Bristol’s marriage (in February 2009) and Sarah being a grandma will cause her to spike in popularity and run on into the White House.
We can only hope.

Obama's top tool to push his agenda will not be his Cabinet secretaries or aides, but rather his online network. Obama's political e-mail list tops 13 million names, a digital force that the incoming White House can tap to push for his legislation, tamp down critics or bolster popular support. It's also a way for Obama to reach into every state, every city, and every neighborhood. (AP Photo/change.org)
Seems like the liberal media & their cameras continue to follow Sarah - not vice versa.
There - fixed it.
She threatens them, therefore like rabid dogs backed into a corner they attack. It’s too bad we can’t just put them out of their misery.
Yep, excellent point.
That’s like blaming Tiger Woods for attracting attention for not playing golf since June. The messenger is only to blame.
Downhill? Did the candidate go downhill? It would have been worse had Sarah kept the illegitimate grandchild a secret.
This Jerk must not have heard of her rally attendance.
That is true. She had millions of people come to see her...if only they had voted for her and McCain it would have been more easier to brag about.
the campaign did experience a negative effect, every time McCain endeared himself to the left by calling them “My friends”
God, you got that right.
