Palin Vacation “Dangerous” Says CBS
A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 4 June 2011 | John Semmens

Posted on 06/05/2011 11:19:24 AM PDT by John Semmens

Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin’s family vacation tour of historic sites has attracted hordes of media attention—a situation that CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro characterizes as “dangerous.”

“We’ve been provided with no schedule or itinerary,” Corsaro complained. “We’re forced to stalk her if we want to find out where she’s going and what she’s doing. It’s very aggravating, not to mention dangerous. Every network wants to be first in line to get the best picture, to be close enough to overhear every conversation. Media vehicles are racing with each other, tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic trying to beat out the competition—it’s scary and nerve wracking.”

Corsaro rebuffed suggestions that as an uninvited guest he was, perhaps, invading Ms. Palin’s privacy. “Palin is not a private person,” Corsaro maintained. “People want to know what she’s up to. It’s our duty to tell them. She’s being inconsiderate with us. If she continues with this attitude she shouldn’t be surprised if our coverage turns negative toward her.”

In related news, MSNBC commentator Chris Matthews called Palin “the most divisive figure in American politics since Abraham Lincoln. Just like Lincoln, she has no respect for how the game is supposed to be played. Her criticism of Mitt Romney on the day he announced his candidacy was an insult to an established protocol. As a private citizen I think she should keep her opinions about politics to herself.”

Fake news is dangerous too, CBS, and the lack of investigative journalism on protected classes of candidates.

“If she continues with this attitude she shouldn’t be surprised if our coverage turns negative toward her.”

He really said that?

So, accordig to Corsaro at CBS, Gov Palin is a public figure; according to Chris Matthews at MSNBC she’s a private citizen. These guys are a laugh a minute.

You mean your coverage of Sarah Palin isn’t negative already? Hate to see what y’all do when it gets negative!

As a private citizens, she can get on a bus any ole’ time she wants and go to wherever she wants. Do only “elected” citizens have the right to free speech?

Dangerous for whom? The media? Who cares? Who the H cares about the stupid media? They're like little children crying because they haven't got enough attention or having temper tantrums because they don't get their own way. Their job is to report the news but somewhere along the line they've got the idea they ARE the news.

Keep setting your own agenda Sarah. Go where you want to Sarah. If the media doesn't like it, they can take a flying leap.

The sheer idiocy of these media leftists is astounding! Not a single solitary one of these socialist-loving, perverted, libtard propagandists has bothered to notice that they are falling all over each other to cover a woman they claim is one of the most ignorant and dangerously stupid people on the planet. They are covering her with as much interest and fervor as they do the O-hole, despite the fact that in their putrid minds, she is a joke; all the while they are too stupid to notice that she is proving how ignorant and clueless THEY truly are.

Someone should call a SWAT team to CBS Headquarters because obviously in the newsroom some lunatic is holding a gun to the news director’s head AT THIS VERY MOMENT and forcing the CBS news director “Follow Palin’s bus tour at any cost!”.

Complaining about followi8ng Palin’s Bus tour is the only thing the media can do right now that doesn’t get the attention of the crazed gunman who is watching in the control room with their hostage the CBS News director.....

Obviously since this is about Palin there is some crazed gunman involved, because when it was about Plain in January all the major news outlets said the the crazed Gunman was obviously affiliated with Palin, I am just taking their “logical conclusion” and logically concluding it....

Won’t someone help them in the CBS News Room before the Crazed Gunman who is currently holding a gun to the News Director’s head makes them, I mean “forces” the poor little journalists out there to break more traffic laws.....

[the above post is dripping with sarcasm, and the poster is not saying there is an actual gunman in the CBS News HQ holding a gun to the News Director’s head, but someone may just want to check just to be safe.]

I think Rush Limbaugh accurately pointed out that the ones the Leftists ridicule and attack are the ones they're scared of. The ones they say are formidable are the ones they're not scared of. We're dealing with jackals here. Good to know. The more you know and realize about your enemy, the better. Unlike many, Palin gets it about these guys.

“We’ve been provided with no schedule or itinerary,”

Boo freakin' hoo. She's a private citizen and as such doesn't have to provide you with an itinerary. You're the ones stalking her and causing the problems. Funny, you claim she can't possibly win, yet you're falling all over yourselves to get a picture or a quote. Sarah is playing you like a fiddle, hahahaha! It's the age old strategy. Pretty gal gives a wink in your general direction and immediately walks away ignoring you. What happens next? You're scrambling and slobbering and begging for her to give you the time of day. Sarah has you all wrapped around her little finger. There's no escape. She will always win and you will always lose.

The simple desire of the Palin Heath family to have a Memorial Weekend Magical Mystery Tour reduced the State Owned Media to paparazzi.

Sort of the way some in law enforcement feel that they are the law. I’ve overheard a few mouth that very sentiment. Of course with video cameras everywhere now they don’t say it as much.

The ruling elite are loosing some of their grip.

I applaud Sarah’s strategy. The press must cover her, but she won’t do it on their terms. Eventually, IF they want to effectively cover her, they will have to moderate and stop “assasinating” her in their coverage. IF this is the strategy, it is smart.

And yet they decry her as a "media whore" who is "chasing every headline". Now they whine that they endanger themselves (note: not her doing), fighting each other for the chance to get to see her first.

Looks like the MSM slipped and allowed a little bit of truth to come out here.

The day that she gives the press her itinerary is the day protesters, tipped off by the commy press, will be at every stop and they will try to cause physical harm.

“As a private citizen, she should keep her opinions to herself”.

The hypocrisy is staggering here. He whines that she won't disclose her schedule, then cries that she's not keeping her opinion to herself. Attention moron: She's TRYING to leave you out of it, and you just admitted that you're endangering yourself by forcing yourself on her appearances. It is YOU that causes the danger, and it is YOU who is not keeping her opinions secret.

In reality, of course, this MSM goon is simply showing what we all know to be true. The MSM is unnecessary in the Internet age. They are endangering themselves just to try to stay relevant, and say that THEY broadcast her ideas. Clearly, she doesn't need them to do so... and clearly, they are causing problems and endangering people to try to keep pretending that they are relevant and necessary. This fool virtually laid that out in plain sight in 2 short paragraphs.

I think CBS employs far too many unstable personalities. It’s entirely possible that these people represent a grave and potentially physical threat to the well being, safety and health of Sarah Palin, her family and those who support her.
