Sarah Palin: Journey into the Media’s Heart of Darkness
Facebook ^ | 7/26 | Sarah Palin

Posted on 07/26/2010 2:40:54 PM PDT by curth

How ironic that on a day when we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, The Daily Caller released 15 pages of JournoListers’ email exchanges about a dark and demented conspiracy regarding my son, Trig.

It’s tough to fittingly describe these numerous members of the mainstream media who actively engaged in the debate about this conspiracy back when I was first introduced as John McCain’s running mate, and it’s impossible to legitimize any “prominent” media publication that continues to traffic in this bizarre narrative today. It wasn’t just a few fringe characters in that JournoList discussion. It included writers for major newspapers, magazines, and online news publications. Those participating in this immature exchange in attempts to plant seeds of doubt and falsely accuse even included a famous historian.

This JournoList exchange exposes the warped nature of today’s media, thus explaining why many of us are forced, in fairness to the public, to utilize other mediums to communicate until the mainstream media wakes up and begins respecting the public’s intelligence and desire for truth in reporting. There is a sickness and darkness in today’s liberal media. With revelations like the JournoList exchanges, may the light keep shining to expose the problem.

It’s always darkest before the dawn. My hope, therefore, is that today, marking the anniversary of our nation’s attempt to show respect for our brothers and sisters, sons and daughters with special needs, will also mark the beginning of a new, more respectful discourse among members of our media who at least aspire to be fair and objective.

Thank you Sarah, for a cogent and accurate response to the liberal/socialist agenda.

I have to admit there is a part of me that wants to say

“Run away from all of this Sarah, leave public life, enjoy your family”

But I think we all (every conservative in this country) have to stand strong and fight to the death. Because our country is in trouble. We need to save our country. The future of our children is worth it. Once you realize that the worst thing thing that can happen is that the government and or some radicals could take us out, that is worth the risk when the alternative is losing our country. This is still our country.

I think she should sue them, all of them. Sort of like a reverse class action suit. It could be called a 'no-class' action suit.

These clowns should also be brought up on charges of tampering with the election process.(or whatever it's called) And then soaked with fox urine. I'm not kidding. You soak these journalists in fox urine and the next time they go to write a story they might consider using the truth. I know that's outlandish, but have you ever smelled fox urine?

For 40 years the MSM have been nothing but political orgs campaigning 24/7/365 against Republicans, who only hire only liberal hack posers as faux reporters.

Why did it take Republicans so long to figure this out? Why have they spent decades going on their shows, giving them interviews, acting and voting on how the MSM will react...giving them credibility.

It is too late now to matter, the commies have already infiltrated every crevice of the US gov.

I think these journalists should be tortured. Tie them up in a cattle barn somewhere. Cut off one finger a day. And then when all of their fingers are gone, move onto toes and then larger limbs.

Sarah makes good points about the disgusting liberal media, but many will also note that most conservatives didn't/don't consider the Americans with Disabilities Act a cause for celebration. Of course, it was signed into law by the RINO GHWB.

We still don't know what Sarah believes on many issues.

Or branded. Yeah, that's it. Burn a brand into their foreheads. Something simple, like,"I am a lying, stinking criminal." In the odd case where all that did not fit on their forehead, the branding could be continued on their underarms. Ouch, you say? Well, of course ouch. That's the point.

The left really looks at the disabled like Hitler did. Better off aborted.

The Journolist just exposes their evil agenda. Straight from the people who couldn’t wait to kill Terri Schaivo.

Dear Sarah,

I call them the Enemedia.
Please use it often, and use it with a smile.
They’ve earned that title.

I agree: Sue the list and any member who coordinated against her. She certainly has standing/has been damaged. It would also make it possible for her to use discovery to get all the names on the list.

Dude, please don't hate on these guys like that. It just hurts and diminishes you. It's also boring for the rest of us who have to wade through it.

You don't have to like these guys. They are your enemies. Just don't fantasize about torturing them: it isn't good for you.

I’d love to see her mow those syphilitic squirrels down but what sort of standing does she have?

Cut off one finger a day. And then when all of their fingers are gone, move onto toes and then larger limbs.

Or in the case of the lib journalists, on to the smaller appendages.

Substitute the word damaged for standing. To prove standing one has to show they have been damaged in some way. She’d have no problem proving damages. Would just have to put people on the stand that parroted the LIST false statements.
