Posted on 11/16/2010 11:48:26 AM PST by onyx
Fox News pays Sarah Palin as a contributor to their network. And apparently to be fair and balanced, they also pay Judith Miller and Liz Trotta to make fun of Sarah Palin:
LINK TO THE VIDEO
UPDATE: Heres what was said:
LIZ TROTTA: Alessandra Stanley [of the New York Times] had the best line [in her Nov. 11 review]. She said the new [Palin TLC] show was like The Sound of Music without the Nazis, without the romance and without the music.
JUDITH MILLER (laughing): Oh, the Washington Post hated it, too . . . [Post TV critic Hank Steuver] said [Palin has] the kind of sound of a voice when warning you to heed the bears it would actually scare the bears. . . . He said you just get the sense that all shes waiting for when shes looking at this great outdoors is to get back to her SUV for enough bars to send out her latest twitter about the beauty of the environment.
OK, thats what was said during the commercial break. Heres what was said when the show came back on the air:
SCOTT: She has gotten a lot of heat for that new show. Some lefty groups, Ellis, are pushing Discovery Communications to pull the plug. How about at that for freedom of speech?
[ELLIS] HENICAN: Strategic misstep on the part of the lefty groups, as you mentioned. Let the woman talk. Believe me, the more she talks, the better off they are.
[JON] SCOTT: Interesting that some of these folks who dont like her I mean, she puts eyeballs in front of television sets, right?
MILLER: Yeah, and she got a network to pay her a million dollars per episode to do this. But I found the most interesting review to come from Karl Rove, who is not exactly a left wing lunatic, who said this is not going to advance her presidential prospects. This doesnt make her look presidential. Id listen to Karl.
TROTTA: And the numbers keep going down every time she makes appearance, her popularity numbers. You have to keep track of those. The more you see her, the less you like her. And overexposure is something the Democrats have to pray for.
SCOTT: So you think that
TROTTA: Plus the fact that they can bank on the timidity of most men, who are so absolutely spooked by feminism that theyre afraid to criticize her.
HENICAN: Give her something on the Cartoon Network
This just makes them look really petty and shallow.
These people are all lefties. What do you expect them to say about the program?
I’ll wager that none of these oafs mentioned that the first episode attracted more than 5-million viewers.
I would prefer Michelle Bachman for POTUS over Sarah but the more people attack the Palins’, the more I like them as good, christian, patriotic Americans.
Trotta I’m not surprised by at all, she has hated Sarah from day 1, she is a big time liberal Democrat, the others are Dems too, that Hennigan roach but Jon Scott, that is a surprise, he seemed like a good guy
She will invite the troops from Walter Reed Instead...
She knows about cold, and that would be a dish I would love to see her serve ( the media ) them...
That sounds exactly like what she would do.
Have these people EVER set foot in fly-over country?
>>> the more people attack the Palins, the more I like them as good, christian, patriotic Americans. <<<
Which is EXACTLY what they are, and have always been.
Liz Trotta acyually said something about Sarah “TOTING HER RETARDED CHILD AROUND”!! I DETEST LIZ TROTTA!!
This show is serving no purpose anymore. I doubt if it has any ratings.
They think that over-exposure will hurt her.
I think not. I think the more America sees her the more likely America will be to recognize BS when it gets said about her.
Are they making light of Palin, or laughing at the reviews by WaPo, etc. ?
That is shocking!
Looks like from the transcript that Scott was just asking questions and not making comments
Those people are the very elites that think they’re still calling the shots. Completely out of touch with us.
I think the farthest west they’ve been is Ft. Lee, New Jersey!
You go, Sarah. Show these jealous fools how it's done.
