Foxnews Ticked Off At Palin, So They Send Out Carl Cameron To Lie About Her (Video)
Sheya ^ | Sunday Augus14, 2011 | Sheya

When Governor Palin arrived in Iowa yesterday Ben Smith of Politico tweeted:

On the way to the Palin mob, ran into a furious Fox crew who hadn’t been given a heads up.

Ben also writes:

Palin also gave extended interviews to CNN’s Don Lemon and ABC’s Jake Tapper. Fox had a camera at the event, but none of its on-air correspondents appeared at her hourlong press conference.

Evidently Fox didn’t take it lightly and decided to get even. So they sent out Carl Cameron to lie, spin and make stuff up, twice in 90 seconds:

First he said this.

She’s been saying for month really that she might run if she felt that there was not someone that could carry the type of constitutional message that she thinks is important. But today she said she might be able to support Rick Perry, the Texas Governor, who’s going to get into the race tomorrow, she might be able to support Mitt Romney, the national front runner, or anybody else, she said, on the republican side, because she’s an anybody but Obama candidate. The fact that she’s signaling potential support for others may be yet another sign that she’s backing away from the race.

Nice making stuff up Carl, here is what Palin really said.

Asked by a reporter is she would be enthusiastic about Rick Perry being the nominee she responded.

“If at the end of the line he’s the one left standing I would be extremely enthused about him because I’m a believer in ‘ABO’ – Anybody But Obama.”

What she said is that if ”at the end of the line“, like at the end of the nomination process, whether she’s in or out, Perry is the nominee, or any other candidate for that matter, she would support them because anyone would be better than Obama.

I’ll go out on a limb here, but I think it’s a safe bet that if you ask any of the other candidates if they would support the eventual nominee they’ll all say they would support that candidate no matter who it might be. So how exectly does that suggest that Palin is backing off from running?

Cameron must have missed the various shots Governor Palin took at Perry:

Sounds like a cat fight because Sarah Palin is definitely a woman and Carl Cameron is a “girlie man.”

Since she works for Fox, it would be seen as an ethical lapse if she gave Fox a heads up. She didn’t give anyone a heads up, and Fox News had as good a chance of catching up with her as the rest. If they missed out, or stayed home in a snit, that was their problem.

Cark Caneron IS a girlie man and a suck up to the neo con contingency.

Kristol, Barnes, Krauthamer - never take their advice on a candidate. They are all in the tank for some ruling class fool.

Carl Cameron is the problem. I believe G. B. had a problem with him also.

Carl was the one who “leaked” information at the end of the 2008 campaign to make Sarah look bad. His reporting can’t be trusted when it comes to her.

What shots did Sarah take at Rick Perry?

Fox had announced for a couple of days prior that she was going to be there so this is BS.

Carl also broke the Bush DUI story in the 2000 election.

Exactly, Cameron was the one who, barely containing his glee, reported on camera some false lies (Palin being a diva; thinking Africa was a country, etc.) from some hoaxter, who claimed to be part of the McCain debate team. He was like a tittering schoolgirl who couldn’t wait to spread some hot gossip. It was repellent. It was then spread to the other networks and eventually became more than a week’s worth of fodder for the late-night comedians. Never a retraction.

I’ve loathed that bastard ever since.

She also gave an interview with Hannity.

Side note: Did anyone catch Hannity’s show last week when he had ex NFL player I believe his name is Spencer Timmerman on his panel? Hannity was wearing Timmerman’s superbowl ring and just at the break he threw his nerf football and along with it went flying Timmermans ring. When the show returned he was not wearing the ring anymore. Those rings cost about 30K I believe.

Carl Cameron has always been a little turd.

Always spinning for the more moderate candidates in the race.

He's always been a mediocre reporter as a result.

Years ago I saw him at Presidency 4 in Orlando, and could not believe my eyes. He looked like he was around 6ft three and about 80 pounds.

Every time I saw him, he was never walking, he was running and dodging like he was trying to avoid personal contact with people, not like he was late for a speech,etc. He resembled a spear. LOL!

IMO, Carl Cameron has been a Palin hater from the moment she appeared on the national scene in 2008.

“Carl Cameron is a “girlie man.”

Yeah, could be. I know I’ve had enough of him. Earlier today he referred to Perry as being “all hat and no cattle”. What does he know about Perry - and what does he know about Texas “hats and cattle”? Personally, I would say Cameron is “no hat and no cattle”.....

It seems to be getting worse since Murdoch ran into his problems across the pond and the Libs decided to go after him here. Could be we are in for a little Fair and Unbalanced at least for awhile.

Yes, I saw it. His name is Spencer Tillman.

Very intelligent guy.

But being a black conservative, he'll soon be treated to sickening "Uncle Tom" charges by the putrid Left.

Count on it.

Exactly! All they had to do is follow the crowds.

Carl Cameron has been a jerk in the past. Don't know why FNC keeps him in that position.

He probably body-slammed Sean.

Then drop-kicked him into tomorrow.

Lol!
